Question about Hamilton Beach 40714 Espresso Machine
I had mine apart some time ago. I do not recall a replaceable fuse. The unit does have a thermal fuse that will burn out if the machine overheats such as catching fire. To get to the working parts you need to UNPLUG THE MACHINE remove the top. It is a bear to pry off, but it will eventually come free.
Once the top is off, locate the thermal fuse. It should look like a small cylinder, silver or gold, with one pointed end and silver leads coming from each end. Could be near a switch or near where the cord come into the unit. Double check the machine is unplugged for the next step.
Using a continuity test meter, check that the fuse is not blown by placing one meter lead on each side of the fuse. - If you get the top off, the folks at radio shack might be willing to help you test the fuse.
If it is bad, they may carry that part in store or can order it for you.
