Yes the autofill is inside the control electronic box . If you know about electronic PCB board you migh need to replace a relay which is welded on the PCB board. Or you have toreplace the whole electronic contraol box which is expensive.

Pump intermitently turns on for 1 second when not busy

It is the automatic water level control kicking in due to turbulence in the boiler, but if the machine is neglected, the AWC probe is encrusted with scale, and must be cleaned or replaced.

I have an Astoria Argenta SAE-2 & it seems to be overfilling with water & then leaking. The ball that is usually sitting in the tube to show maximum/minimum water level has disappeared. Is...

you evidently have an overfill. it can be from 1 solenoid valve,2 electronic level controller,3 level detector wire or 4 if the machine is frozen and it mix waters
You should eliminate them 1 by 1 by this order:
- swich on water supply and open steam knobs. Wait 5 minutes, if water does not leak from pipes continuously you just eliminated $ freezing problem - leave steam and tea valves open and switch on power of machine, wait until electronics fill few seconds(it is programed to do so each time is switched on)>> wait until you see water leaking from steam pipes, wait them to start giving you steam. If during this you start to see ball it means you succeed to empty the boiler enough to get it in normal. NOW YOU SHOULD control 1 2 and 3
Be patient and wait to rise pressure on the boiler and control the level of water. if the water level rises again you should: check the detector wire(be sure that the part in water is not insulated with calcium, that the wire and the fitting of the wire are good separated and insulated by teflon insulation and be sure that wire from circuit is good attached to detector wire) check the solenoid valve: detach the wires to solenoid valve for tank filing, cool down machine to loose all steam and open the fitting attached to exit of solenoid valve , the exit which supplies the tank with water. make sure that is still attached to water supply and wait to see if drops are coming from valve IF IT IS SO THAN MECHANICAL PART OF VALVE IS DAMAGED
situation: if we checked 4,1and 3. If they are in order than remains only part 2 controler controler should be checked in some electronics workshop or replaced with new

The boiler won't fill

Either the autofill solenoid is not working, the probe is damaged or is touching the metal part of the boiler(teflon insert is missing), or the main box fuse for the solenoid is damaged.

We Have an Astoria SAE 2 Group and am looking to find the NSF label location on the machine. If i can't find that, how can I show health dept that it is NSF certified ?

On the right side of the machine next to the serial number is the most likely spot for the NSF sticker or tag depending on the model of the machine it may only have an ETL listing.

I have an Astoria Argenta SAE1 Jun espresso machine. It has started tripping the circuit breaker. It does this when it has reached operating pressure (or nearly so). It does this without anyone touching...

Your problem could be one or two items (element or pressure stat or both). Remove the screw in the top of the P.stat(black or gray rectangle box with electrical wire going in from bottom about 4-6 inches long), lift the cover and check the terminals(turn power off). Make sure that there are no loose connections on the terminals.
On the element remove the wires that are connected to it and test with an Ohmsmeter.
