There is a reset button inside on the front side of the boiler (you have to take the top of the machine off. There are 4 screws and remove the water tank). It is located between 2 black wires and is a red button. Push it in and test. There is also an other problem that you might have. If the brew thermostat is bad it won’t heat. To test for this, push the steam switch and wait 15 seconds. Then open the steam knob and push the middle button and see if the water is warm. If it is then you need a new brew thermostat. That is the thermostat that has the red dot on the top. It sets on top of the boiler next to the steam thermostat. If you take the top off, make sure that the machine is unplugged.
If none of these things work check the heating element with an ohms meter. The reading in the terminals should be from 12 to 16 ohms. If no reading the elements is bad and you have to replace the boiler.

I left my Artisan espresso machine on between brewing coffee and making hot milk and got an electrical burning smell. Should the machine be switched off if not in use for quarter of an hour or so?


Always off when not being used, it only takes 4 minutes to heat from cold and that can be while you are sorting coffee and cups. Get the electrical smell investigated, these have a problem with seals in the steam boiler which causes switch problems from the steam.

Hi
Your seals in the steam boiler are gone and it is leaking water to the switch below. The steam boiler is located just above the switch on the lower left side. You just have to replace the seals (O-rings)

Old 1996 nuova simonelli mac digit no pressure or heat


There is a reset thermostat on the right side of the machine above the element, check to see if it tripped. If it did make sure there is enough water in the machine and when turning it on, open one of the steam valves and turn off the cup warmer. Leave the steam wand open until it hisses or small amounts of steam or air will vent out.
