Where do I find a Faema Smart A2 replacement touch pad? The left push panel is not working and the guy fixing it wants me to order a new one but I can't find a matching part anywhere on the internet.

You're looking for part number 3301135601. I've come across a few Smarts with Due front panels - so measure your keypad: if it's 68x58mm you need a Due version instead.

Our coffee machine is continually beeping and the water flow will not flow automatically, is there a reset button or something

It's beeping because it's in programming mode. Usual reason with a machine of this age is that the touchpad has failed. Water gets into the touchpad membrane after a while, which makes the controller think a button has been pressed. If it thinks the STOP button is being pressed/held for more than 5 seconds, it goes into programming....
To confirm: Remove drip tray, take lid off controller box and unplug one of the flat plugs from the keypad (there will be two long thin plugs next to each other, and probably a space or two for extra plugs). When you get the correct one, the beeping will stop and the machine will resume normal operation on the working keypad.

No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the water was coming out very slowly, in drips. The doser or grind were not the problem, because even when I switched to Hot Water, it was still dripping. ...

It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

We have a faema e92 but our mains water is off, can we manually fill the tank without mains water?

The machine can sack the water directly from a water tank since the water inlet hose is conected first to presure pump. Just insert the water inlet hose in a water tank, however please take care that if you leave the pump work without ay water for more than 2 minutes the pump might be destroed.

Machine not heating - Faema E98

If reset is used alot it is possible that it is time to replace it. You should think of installing a water softener on the inline water(everpure7S0). For the machine being out of water is the probe on the boiler or in the sight glass?
If it is on the sight glass talk to the service people and see if they can refit it to the boiler that way it will be in contact with the water in the boiler and not whats in the sight glass, as those holes get clogged easily.
Have the element checked also, there might be a crack in the legs which could also be causing the thermostat to trip.
