Is it a huge ordeal to take this machine apart to get at the heating element and fuses? i have downloaded the parts manual online.....so i can see where everything is, but i just dont want to screw up!
I got a thermostat for 20 quid which I thought was a bargain. Have taken the back cover off and found all the parts but when I try and connect it the wires seem to be very slightly too short and I'm not 100% positive where the earth goes.
A friend took the bit off a few weeks back to see if he could get the same part !!!! so I didn't see how it was originally.

This is a good little machine. its basically a commercial machine shrunk down for home and is worth repairing even if you have to take it in. go to nuova simonelli usa website and download the parts manual and check the 009500014 thermal fuse and the 09500004 highlimit thermostat and see if one is gone or tripped. check the pressure stat, check if power to elements and if there is check to make sure the elements havnt failed from being heated with no water. like i said this machine is on par with a rancilio silvia so well worth repairing.

It could be: the knob/control panel, one or more fuses, or the heating element. When this happened to me it was the heating element on my electric dryer. The heating element stopped working because the air flow was blocked, causing the heating element to work too hard and develop a break. The air flow was blocked because you're supposed to take the dryer out every 6 months and clean the lint out of the vent behind the machine. No where in any owners manual does it really explain this. For my machine, the heating element was about 50 bucks and it was easy to fix it myself, but don't order a new heating element unless you know that's what it is. It could also be a problem with the knob, one of the fuses, etc. The heating element is the most expensive problem. The fuses are cheaper. If you have a multimeter you can check the resistance, but the place where I buy my appliance parts will check them for free. You might try calling around to see if a place near you will do that for you.
Probably a bad heating element. There are a few different styles, you'll just need to lookup your model number on an appliance parts website, find the right part, and then do a quick search on replacement. There are probably ten or fifteen websites that have instructions to replace heating elements.
Here's one where you can buy the part, the element is part number 17.
Will to take it apart to get to the heating element, thermostats, and fuses. If are not familiar in taking it apart go to this websit www.partselect.com type in you model number and it shows diagrams on it. You can try to follow the diagrams it shows and try to take it apart and checking out your heating element, thermostat and fuses. I would start by Ohming this things out first with a multi meter on your ohm setting once you get to it. If they check out ok, then further troubleshooting will be needed.. Remember good fuses will read 0.0 ohms bad fused will read "OL" . You heating element should read i believe about 9-10 ohms i think. hopefully this helps
heating element is bad unplug machine access the heating element it should have a break in the coil if so twist the coil back together gently though put it back in and try it i didi it to minr 6 years ago and no problems and you save a ton of money.
Your heating element is toast! If you want to risk taking it apart, there is a fuse inside that can be replaced and if the fuse is still in working order, (test it using a meter), the heating element is dying. There is nothing else to do, but buy a new coffee maker.
that's your cycling thermostat and it's bad also check continuity of your thermal fuse (usually off white and looks like a tilted square) and check your high limit thermostat (closest to the heat element) and also check that the heat element is not broken any place throughout the coil of it. While you have it apart clean out the build up of lint everywhere.
There are usually two thermocouples in the dryer. One is somewhere at the front of the machine, under the lint trap, and the other is either right next to the heating element or behind the drum. They are usually a rectangular or diamond-shaped metal plate with a 1/2 inch high by 3/4 inch diameter cylinder on them. There are only two electrical leads on it. Unplug the leads and check with a continuity tester. If there is no continuity, the thermocouple is burned out. The most common cause of this is an obstruction in the exhaust hose at the back of the dryer to outdoors or a tight bend in that hose.
If im looking at my papers right, this unit is a stacker, correct? The element is directly behind the drum on Frigidaire units. You can I believe remove the top, then remove the front cover by removing two screws on the inside the hold it to the cabinet. I believe the element and thermal fuse should be able to be tested from the top. After you remove the top, the wiring should be on the right rear side. The thermal fuse is round, and has two wires going to it. It can be located on the element housing itself, or on the rear bulkhead. To test this fuse, you will need a meter that reads continuity (ohms). Just attach the leads and see if you get a reading (be sure to remove one of the wires). The element wiring should also be in the element housing. You will see the wires coming off the top (all by themselves, not attached to a thermostat). Testing will be the same way. If you have to replace the element you will need some help more than likely. The drums in Frigidaires pop out. You will have to remove the belt, then (with towels wrapped around your hands to keep all your skin) lift the rear of the drum up to pop it out of the bearing holder (like a ball joint). Then you just unscrew the element, and replace. Its not uncommon anymore for anything to break on these new units, in fact, 90% of my business is in warranty call, usually within 3 months of purchase. Sorry, but would rather be truthful than blow smoke. Good luck, and let me know if there is any other questions you may have.
