After about 2 years of great expresso, today the machine will not turn on. Press button, nothing happens. Tried different outlets, no luck. Willing to pry the machine apart if there is any chance of fixing it myself. Anyone out there know what's going on with this machine or how to fix it? Thanks! K
There is a post with a solution for this with the title: "Machine won't turn on - no power!
" - fixmebob has a good solution, but you'll need to be a little tech
savvy to perform it yourself. I was able to take the machine apart, but didn't know how to replace a diode. I ended up sending mine in for repair,
which ended up being about $55 because I had to ship the machine. But
good news is that I'm back up and running. Was a little nervous about shipping the machine, but it worked out fine. If you decide to take your machine to a service center, here's a link to the list on the Breville site: http://www.brevilleusa.com/support/service-centers.pdf

Hi, I dont know which brand machine you have, but I should be able to work out what is wrong. If your machine has a press button or turn knob steam tap, then it could be the solenoid which opens the steam flow. The solenoid itself maybe stuck or the coil maybe faulty. You just need to work back from the steam arm to work out which solenoid it is. It should make a clicking sound when activated. Commercial machine solenoids canbe disassembled and cleaned. If its a domestic machine, then just replace the solenoid. Also, some machines have a micro switch that activates the steam valve. If its faulty, then replace it. If its a domestic machine you have, then another thing that maybe at fault, and that is the thermoblock (small boiler). If it doesn't heat up then no steam canbe made. The thermoblock has an element inside, and they can not be replaced. You have to replace the whole thermoblock. It can be easily checked with a multi meter to see if the circuit is broken. On some thermoblocks, is a thermostat or overload sensor. It is also easily checked with a meter. So lets break it down a) solenid b) micro switch c) Thermoblock d) thermostat/ thermol overload Hope this has help you. Id be looking towards the thermoblock. Dazza

Can either be the power button(pretty common issue or a loose connector).Depend what kind of machine you have .PS2 have a common denominator...but actually the machine are different each other.The FAT one and the Slim one are totally different
You ever hear of dog years? Well Calypso follows those same guidelines. So your machine is 35 years old. These are the Edsel's of washing machine fame. I had a Calypso for 6 1/2 years. 3 pumps, numerous circuit boards, drive motors, phone calls and arguements with Whirlpool, along with machine downtime. I finally junked it and bought a Whirlpool Duet 9200 HT (get the made in Germany machine). A world of difference in wash quality. Fresh smelling unballed clean clothes. The Calypso was removed from the market and the subject of a class action lawsuit. Just Google it and start reading. Get comfortable first. There's a lot to read.
yea, that happens to me. Try this way....Turn on the Barista, wait til the the steam's green light, then push the steamer button on, wait for a good 1 minute. It should be blowing hot air by then. Good Luck
Switch the unit. let it rest for half an hour. While it is resting check the manual for any 'faults' list.
Look for a 'reset' command - may be mean pressing several buttons while the machine is off and then with the buttons still pressed switch on the machine[you may need two hands and a nose or three hands for this ;-)]
If still out of luck go to places for further info
HP technical support team
could be 2 things
1)try closing the door and banging the machine on the front next to where your door catch goes into the washer if it starts could have a lose wire or be faulty
2)if no1 doesnt work than it will be your mains filter which if blown power doesnt get to your machine
if the machine is brand new and has manufacturers warranty then these are covered through the warranty and any tampering will void your warranty though should be covered for no less than a year
