Question about DeLonghi Prima Donna Avante ESAM6700 Automatic Coffee Coffee Maker
Turning motor and transmission over by finger is quite possible but maybe a little tight? Trying to decide if the transmission is tight or the motor brushes worn??
Good Job freeing it all up etc. Your 90% there
Can you remove brushes & clean and stretch a millimetre more out of brush leads to stop arcing. Or perhaps the load is to great.
I did notice you said RCD.
RCD's usually only trip when an in-balance occurs between the hot phase wire & neutral wires.
Eg... what goes in via phase wire must come out on neutral wire. Even a small millivolt trickle to ground will trip an RCD. (20-30ma)
The Residual Current Device is for electric shock Safety.
It is not the main fuse or circuit breaker.
RCD's can be a real pain when there is a slight moisture leak.
My fridge in my Winnebago would trip the RCD after it hadn't been used for awhile. The insulation around the 10A heating element was damp & tripping the RCD continually.
So how do I bypass the RCD to heat the element up and get rid of moisture. My method was to use a stand alone generator with no RCD to power the RV.
Worked great. Once the element surroundings were dry it ran fine on the home 240vAC.
So... If you really are tripping the RCD then the problem is AC "LEAKING" to Earth. Usually Moisture.....Try a hair dryer
If it is really blowing a Fuse or Circuit Breaker then the problem is too much current being drawn in circuit.
Hope this Helps

I had the same problem with a second hand dellnghi 330s machine I bought today. I opened it up ( not the tricky steam knob: kust pull hard to get off, i used a screwdriver as a lever) and found a kind of resistor in a clear tube, clamped to the body of the machine. Only one of the ends was bent over and the clamp was not grasping it properly. So I straighten it, made sure the clamp was holding the actual resistor and... Voila! No more fuse trippings!
