Ascaso Dream heating element gone - twice

The original heating element in my Ascaso Dream died after 24 months. I replaced it (the part cost £65 ~ 100 USD), and now 18 months later that one has gone too.

Having read similar reports about the Dream, I'm considering buying a new (different) machine, rather than another replacement element. That will be the 5th machine from supposedly quality manufacturers we've got through in a decade.

If when you switch on the machine and the water is cold then, you should replace the boiler element.
There are a number of ascaso boiler elements, depending on the year. Dream Arc Basic Ellipse Page 2
It it works and you get steam , then the boiler is fine.
It may be that wires are loose inside?

My ascaso epresso machine does not heat water, I would like to buy parts for it.


We do not advise you attempt to install a new heating element in this machine. It is extremely meticulous work involving many small parts, you will need metric tools, meters, etc, it requires removing the old boiler, disassemble it, purchasing a new one with the correct gaskets and moving over all the sensors to the new boiler. We do this repair and even for us it is somewhat hairy.

I think our heating element is bad on our Ascaso...we checked it with an ohm meter. When we turn it on, the water doesn't heat up, and there's no steam. Is there anywhere we can get a new element for...


Sounds very much like the element has gone. Mine went after I moved house (suspect something happened during transit). Mine was replaced by a heating technician who wasn't even an official Ascaso agent, so I guess the answer I would give would be go to a local heating systems technician/company. Mine cost a bit more than that, but I got them to change it, so if you're doing it yourself you might get it for under $100.

Ascaso, Innova, Dream Heater not working


If you are confident that your heating element is dead and are filling adventurous enough to replace it- you can get one at:
http://www.1st-line.net/cgi-bin/category.cgi?category=review&item=i365&type=store

I saved myself shipping and repair costs by having it replaced by a friend. He took pictures and marked wires & connectors before removing the broken heater.
Yeah,, this looks to be systematic failure with this machine. Very disappointing- for this kind of money, one would expect the machine to work a bit longer after warranty expires.
