Question about FrancisFrancis! X3 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

FrancisFrancisX3 - no power

Out of nowhere, I'm getting no electrical current to the machine - we plugged in and pushed the buttons as usual, and are getting no reaction at all. Did we blow a fuse somehow? Is this fixable? Thanks.

There are 3 thermostats in the unit- one for the water temperature, one for the steam temperature, and one fuse which blows if the unit overheats. The overtemp fuse is a 'fuseable link' that burns out if the boiler gets too hot (maybe 150C). If that fuse is blown, then you probably have other problems, since the unit won't get that hot unless the steam thermostat fails.

Even if the thermostats have failed, you should get the power light when the unit is plugged in, and the pump should work, but the boiler won't heat up. If you get no power at all, then you have a wiring fault somewhere.

I need to know where the power switch to my vintage sewmor sewing machine is

It depends on the model of your sewing machine. Usually, there is a push button switch somewhere on the machine. However, some machines did not have an on/off button--just activated as soon as they were plugged in to the electrical outlet.

I have checked the plug fuses but there is still no power to the machine

Check the power from your wall outlet. Less than 112VAC, it will not power on. If good, check continuity from individual plug terminals to their corresponding wires. (should be disconnected from appliance first to avoid false readings), if bad, replace cable.If good, check voltage at positive side of incoming terminals at back of connection point and then individual fuse positives, then negatives. (while current is applied) , if good, could indicate a short in the circuit board, or a board fuse, or heater fuse on the motor, or bad display panel. In which case it no longer becomes DIY.
