Re: Electrical Problem

I really donno what that is, but when u say element my guess is a heater of some kind, if so there will be thermostat some where or a thermal overload. Most of the time u could reset it.

The machine is blowing the main fuse, we think we need a new element and a side water gauge, but would like to talk about it. Thankyou

The easiest way to check the element is to remove electrical wires and then check for resistance on the element. Also you might want to check the pressure stat(its the black box with wires leading to the element and tube to the boiler).

Turn it on and trips mains fuse

The problem is probably a damage boiler heating element. It have brake out at a point so it making electrical contact with water and so with body and finally with earthing of the electrical system and thus trips the main fuse which is the earthing protection system.
So you need to replace the heating element. You need also a good inspection to find if their is another reason why the heating element blow up or if its just because of exceed use of the machine

My machine is making coffee but is not heating the water- the right hand swith does not light up

Does the machine heat in steam mode? If so then the brew thermostat has probably failed. If it wont heat in either mode then the heating element(s) may be gone or the middle switch could possibly have failed. In 220- 240 Volt countries the 2 heating elements are wired together (in series) so if even only one goes then the other wont function either. Having said that, the heating elements rarely go in these machines.
Remove top panel (power disconnected) and check the resistance of the thermostats, elements and check for continuity at the middle switch terminals. Can't remember how the thermal fuse is wired but check continuity of this if the other suggestions don't work ( with most appliances the thermal fuse being blown will cut power to the whole unit but as I have never seen one blow on a classic I am not sure in this case).

I brought the coffee maker to Brazil and here is 220 VAC isntead of 120VAC . Do you think it will work with that thing, sorry dont know the name to change the energy???

Its called a converter? Drops the 220 to 120 maybe? As long as the end result is operation on 120VAC you will be ok, otherwise you will be shopping for a new coffee pot.

Transformer 110-220

Less expensive to replace the heating element. But if you already have a 1000 watt transformer then just go that route
