This is quite an easy problem to fix. Whats happened is the water heater has overheated and tripped the power as a safety measure.

Take off the Left hand cover, there are 4 torx screws. You will see the water heater. with what looks like 2 circular teminals held on the side with a metal strap.

these are one shot thermal cut outs. the same as on a tumble drier.
Tassimos are over engineered and really only need one thermal cut of. if there are no lights on the front, the brown wire has tripped. if there is light and no heat the blue wire has tripped.

What I did was swap the brown wires over to the trip that had the blue wires on, so you still have a thermal trip. and bridge the blue wires together and taped them up - voila it works again. DO NOT CROSS THE BROWN WITH THE BLUE> BOOM!

to do the job properly take off the thermal trips and go to an applicance repair shop. of they dont have them on the shelf i would suspect they can get them they are very generic. try not to lose too much of the white thermal paste as this helps with the cut off. if you do lose some its the same as used on CPU heatink compound. put them in and replace the strap and re assemble.

    Thanks for the clue of what might be wrong. Unfortunately, one thermal cutout (TC) has black wires, the other white. Checking with an ohmmeter, both cutouts appear to be open circuit. Shouldn't a functioning TC exhibit zero ohms if functioning properly. Hard to believe both TCs have failed at the same time. Any thoughts?

Usually when there are no lights, the AC was cut by one of the thermal fuses on the side of the water heater. One has black wires, the other has white wires. You cannot locate replacement fuses anywhere! They were custom built for Saeco (Braun). If you want, you can buy them at a 1000 qty. I pried off the aluminum cap of the thermal fuses using jewelers screwdrivers. Being careful not to change the face shape. I took the metal disc under the cap off and popped it back in opposite direction. I replaced the metal disk (BE SURE THE INSULATOR UNDER THE DISK IS PUT BACK IN, IT INSULATES THE VOLTAGE). I replaced the aluminum top, crimp two edges to hold. Then checked to be sure none of the terminals were conductive to the aluminum face.

These fuses are similar in construction to resettable thermal breakers, but the metal strap in the coffee maker does not allow room for the reset button.

We are having the same problem with our Braun Tassimo.... no power, no lights. We followed Chris The Fix's solution, but we do not understand everything. First of all, we have a green, brown and yellow wires. Don't see a blue wire. I am assuming that the trip is the white thingy where the 3 wires go into. If that is correct, then how do you get the wires out of the trip so we can swap the brown with the green (blue?) I think we need layman's explanation. thanks so much.

    Experiencing the same problem. The thermal cutouts (there are two on my unit) are NOT the "white thingy"! The cutouts are mounted on the side of the boiler chamber. Each cutout is sort of T-shaped The long leg of the T is inside the chamber and there is one wire on each of the crossbars of each T. Hope that is understandable. My unit has black and white wires not yellow and blue so I'm stuck too.

Why won't my dishwasher start?


1. check the socket by unplugging the dishwasher and plugging in another appliance you know works ok a kettle or radio etc, this will prove your supply is ok.
2. Check the fuse fitted to your dishwasher to ensure it is ok. or change it for one the same size amps.

Washer does not start, replaced lid switch, and timer still doesn't work. when parts mentioned were replace. washer did start and fill but then stopped.


Hello there and welcome to fixya
I am sorry to hear that you are having problems i will post some information on some more parts that need to be tested ok?
Washing machine is dead, wont start Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.

I have a Bosch wkm 41 maxx classic front loader that is completely dead. Got home from a camp trip yesterday, did two loads, and then wouldn't do a third. No lights, no sounds, completely dead. Any...


Hi Simon from retired Englishman in SW France,

Check that the washer supply is OK using another item - a kettle for instance. If it's not check your breakers/fuses. Reset/replace if necessary and if the same thing happens, or if there was nothing wrong with the breakers/fuses in the first place, sorry but with such a fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what could be wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Left rear tail light does not work


have you had any work done on it sounds like wire may have been cut check for power at fuse and if you can get to wires close to fuse check there and if you can get to wires probe right before the bulb socket cause the socket may be the culprit .

Breville kettle blew fuse (trip switch) now won't switch on


If the 'neon' light is on, the power is getting to the kettle, so if its not heating up then the element must have broken.

This kettle has a little white trip switch inside the 'socket' of the kettle (not the base unit). If its not heating, light is not on and the plug fuse is OK, then poke the white trip until it clicks.

If you already replaced the fuse, next part to inspect is the control board behind the timer.

If that is ok, check the wiring harness, the socket and the power cord.
