It is probably a micro switch not getting a contact to complete the circuit. There are several of them on the machine. Take all removable pieces off and put them back on making sure they are all seated properly. ie- there are three micro switches just in the brew group service door on the right side of the machine. There is also one on the dregs box.

Yes. The thermal fuse is incased in a browish/red cover and is held on to the boiler by a clamp that holds the thermostats on. Slide the fuse out from the clamp and slide the cover off the thermal fuse. Test with a ohms meter. If its bad you should get no reading. You can get a new 182c thermal fuse from Radio Shack, electronics store, or appliance store. If no luck there online espresso machine retailers like Seattle Coffee Gear, Whole-Latte-Love, 1st-Line should be able to help you. Do not try to solder the new fuse in. It has to be crimpwed on or it will blow again.

I have had this problem with our coffee machine as well some how the machine has sucked air into the system and needs to get it out.
