Question about Solis Crema SL-90 Espresso Machine
My boiler was leaking and spraying steam inside of the coffee maker. I replaced the O-ring on the boiler, now when I fire it up it comes on for a second and then trips the GFCI. Since these trip due to resistence I am wondering if the solder issue could be my problem. The solder points in the picture are brown on my board. Will adding more solder likely fix this or does it sound like I need a new board?
I have checked all of my wiring with a photo I took before I disassembled and everything is where it should be. I also put new heat compound on the thermostat and thermal breaker.
If you don't have it fixed, here are some things to check.
There are some points on the back of a SL90 board that can use some more solder. If you pull the board out if its mount, and lay on its face without removing any wires, you will see in the upper left side 3 points that make a triangle. If any of these solder points have what looks like a bulls eye, you need to re-solder and add a little more to reinforce to joint. These Triacs heat when activated and can cause separation in the solder.
I am not sure that this would cause a tripping of your GFCI though. If you have a ohms meter do a reading on your element, then element to ground. You should get a reading in the 12 to 16 ohms on the element (between termanls) but no reading on your element (1 termanl) to ground.

It will need a new board. there is a short across the board and that is what is causing the trip.
