Innova Dream espresso machine

Hi! My espresso machine turns on but it doesn't heat up or build up pressure. I heard a rumor that there is a reset button on the top inside, so I took off the top, but after about 20 minutes of searching, I never found anything that resembled any kind of button. Does anyone know how I can find this? thanks a lot

    Exactly the same symptoms!

I think it is more likely that your element is broken. That has happened to us twice.

Seems to be a problem with either the elctronics sensors, or the "brain" itself. Did you get the machine serviced by an authorised service center, or a local repair guy?

Hi. Could be pressure switch or vaccum valve. To check If the vaccum valve is faulty, try leaving the steam taps open while it is heating up. If it heats up normaly like it supose to than you vaccum valve is stuck. Shouldn't take too long. If it doesn't heat up fast but still heats then that could be element. If it doesn't heat then your pressure switch is faulty. Dazza

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.

Ascaso, Innova, Dream Heater not working

If you are confident that your heating element is dead and are filling adventurous enough to replace it- you can get one at:

I saved myself shipping and repair costs by having it replaced by a friend. He took pictures and marked wires & connectors before removing the broken heater.
Yeah,, this looks to be systematic failure with this machine. Very disappointing- for this kind of money, one would expect the machine to work a bit longer after warranty expires.
