    my machine is less than 1 year old and the "boil" unit seems to have lost power . . . does anyone know where we can get this fixed?

    I am experiencing the same problem. I have some electronic background and decided to take the casing apart to see what was causing the issue. The thermistor (thermostat) which controls the supply to the heater block has burnt out. This could be what is causing your machines heater to not work.



    I am trying to sorce a supplier for the thermistors (made by Eltherm).

If you are confident that your heating element is dead and are filling adventurous enough to replace it- you can get one at:

I saved myself shipping and repair costs by having it replaced by a friend. He took pictures and marked wires & connectors before removing the broken heater.
Yeah,, this looks to be systematic failure with this machine. Very disappointing- for this kind of money, one would expect the machine to work a bit longer after warranty expires.

If when you switch on the machine and the water is cold then, you should replace the boiler element.
There are a number of ascaso boiler elements, depending on the year. Dream Arc Basic Ellipse Page 2
It it works and you get steam , then the boiler is fine.
It may be that wires are loose inside?

Cant make hot milk or foam ascaso dream the wand doesnt work it just stopped. also my coffee is not hot, only lukewarm ive opened it up and everything looks ok, its all just electrics all of which look...


Hi Mike,
You may have 2 issues.
Steam wand may be blocked;
Try descaling the machine 1st before you do any thing else.

1.Try removing the steam tip, if you don't get steam with tip removed, try removing wand, if you don't get steam then the steam pin may be blocked.

If after descaling coffee is still jst warm you could replace thermostats http://www.bluestarcoffee.eu/ascaso--boiler-thermostats-x-2-193-p.asp

If you still don't have steam after descaling and replacing thermostats then you may need to replace the o rings on steam pin.
