Question about Elektra (SX) Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker
Have had my saeco via venezia in for repairs 3 x now because it overheats and trips its overheat cutout switch. Would love to know how to reset it myself as it takes 4-6 weeks to get it through the repair centre. It happens if I steam milk and forget to run water back through the boiler. Any soultions?
Disconnect from the power and remove the 5 or 6 grub screws retaining the main steel cover and take the cover off. You will see a plastic re-set button on top of the boiler amongst the electrical terminals - just click it on again.
To stop overheating always open the steam valve immediately you switch the machine on until water squirts out - this tells you the boiler is full & not dry! Also remember (unlike me!) to switch the machine off as soon as you have finished brewing...

We had trouble finding the plastic reset switch but found it between where the 2 blue wires attach to the boiler. The switch looked the same colour as the boiler so it was a little disguised as being a switch. Thanks for the great tips. You saved us a fortune again let alone the time we would have had without our coffee machine. Cheers

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you need to run water back though the boiler--all that's there when you're steaming is steam and without water all the safety switches go on.

SOURCE: overheat cutout switch
The coffe maker has a heat fuse attached to the side of the pump so when over heats that melts and does not damage the coffee maker
They charge $100 to replace which is a bit tough, you could bypass easily but could damage the machine if not careful
as we have two and one has just stopped pumping, not picking up water so maybe worn valves and I just have it all to bits and noted the heat fuse on the side of the pump
