My francis francis machine doesn't heat up anymore. how can I fix it or where in hawaii??


Hi
If it turns on its noot the thermal fuse on top of the boiler. It can be a couple things. The board is bad or the heating element is bad. Do a ohms reading on the element across the terminals and you should get a reading of 12 to 16 ohms. If you get that its the board. If not its the element. Make sure that the machine is unpluggfed before testing.

Francis Francis x5


Almost certainly, your heating-element is corroded through, and with the...questionable...design of this machine, power continues to flow unchecked through the "substitute neutral" of your machine's case and ground wire, so it keeps working, sorta, until things burn out so badly within the boiler that you can't make a connection. Low boiler water-level might break that connection, too - that's how sketchy this design is. There's a reason the national electric code (and common sense) call for switching the HOT side of a circuit: to minimize the potential exposure to power as long as the switch is off. While the power-switch on this unit may do this, the F-F's thermostat, however, switches the NEUTRAL side, leaving it unable to do anything to prevent stray power from heading merrily through the machine via the ground, once your heating element has corroded through - which is a guaranteed failure item, just a matter of time. Sucks, don't it?

You could replace your element with an after-market version if you're game, but it's not a simple or quick fix. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t1029310-x5_boiler_share_did_replacement .
