Disconnect AC power at wall for safety.
If you can open up the coffee machine and find the heating element then you can use a simple multimeter on ohms scale and check the element for open.
If you are competent with electricity you can also use the multimeter on AC range and check for voltage going into element.
So.... If element is open then find a part number for this assembly and find a replacement.
I did this very same thing on my DeLonghi Coffee machine just last week. The Element was open circuit.
Trouble was it took 3 months to locate & order a replacement assembly (for a reasonable price) So $105 later I am now enjoying decent coffee again.
Good Luck

We can't get our hot tub to heat. The heater light comes on but the heater still won't heat.


heating elements are resistors that get hot
one end will have 115 volts but the other end should be considerable less because the resistance of the heating element drops the voltage
if you used a ohm meter you should be reading a resistance of 500-1000 ohms for a good heater element but with your readings , there will be no resistance so the element is faulty

My ariston 80L water heater not heating water anymore, what's wrong?


You need to replace the heating element or sometimes they have two heading elements. Make sure you turn off the breaker, drain the water, before you remove elements....Do NOT turn breaker back on until water tank is filled with water.

How do i fix my stiebel eltron tankless electric water heater?It stop working..


Th easy fix would be installing a new heating element that has burned out. You don't say what size this tankless heater but if it stopped working entirely you might have just one heating element inside. You can test it by (1) turning off the circuit serving the heater, disconnecting one of the wires to the heating element, then taking an ohmmeter to see what the resistance of the element is. If it is "infinity" then it is open and burned out. Replace element. If it is around 6 ohms (for a 10kW heater running at 240V) then the heating element is OK. Unfortunately those heating elements don't last forever. Check the repair manual on how to replace the heating element.

Only the low setting works for a little while. heat stops but fans will still run.If i turn up higher nothing, not even the fan. Heater has been cleaned and has a new thermostat swicth. Any help wuold be...


Two things come to mind here, one is the over heat protection is tripped and preventing the element from coming on, second is a bad high heat element. You can ring these out with a volt ohm meter and check both, the element if good rings out as a dead short, the over heat protection should be normally closed which means it to rings out as dead short. If it rings out open then it is tripped. some of these can be reset and most only need to be replaced. So check these items out and good luck.

The heat control valve appears to have stuck, the water is only luke warm


I do not know what heat control valve you are referring to on an electric water heater. On an electric water heater it has two heating elements in most cases. One at the top and one on the bottom. One of these is more than likely defective. Turn the power to the water heater off at the service panel or at a disconnect switch. Now take the covers off both heating elements. Check each one with a ohm meter to see if you have continuity. If your meter reads nothing that heating element is bad and needs replacing. On each heating element is a thermostat to set the temperature. Set the upper element to 120 degrees and the lower element to 130 degrees.
