Question about Ascaso ARC Dark Black Espresso Machine

2 Answers

I need a new heating element for my Ascaso Arc but can't separate the old one from the chromed grouphead. As the new one is non returnable I'm hesitating buying it. Fairfax would not give any advice. Any clues?

Hi Isle,

To separate the group from the chrome group head - you can use a screwdriver to pry them apart. it will be bonded with lime.

Failing that you could try rubbing some descaling liquid around the side with a paint brush, this will help dissolve the lime and then pry it off.
You could always replace the whole group - more expensive option but a lot easier that replacing the boiler. ASCASO Dream brass group

Do not do this repair. We do it, and even for us it is pretty hairy.

If when you switch on the machine and the water is cold then, you should replace the boiler element.
There are a number of ascaso boiler elements, depending on the year. Dream Arc Basic Ellipse Page 2
It it works and you get steam , then the boiler is fine.
It may be that wires are loose inside?

My ascaso epresso machine does not heat water, I would like to buy parts for it.


We do not advise you attempt to install a new heating element in this machine. It is extremely meticulous work involving many small parts, you will need metric tools, meters, etc, it requires removing the old boiler, disassemble it, purchasing a new one with the correct gaskets and moving over all the sensors to the new boiler. We do this repair and even for us it is somewhat hairy.

Ascaso Dream Leaking Water


Correct, inside the grouphead their is a gasket which is the same diameter as the filterholter which make the perfect fit so the presure of the water will not leak out. So now either the gasket is damage in one point so you have the leak from that point. Second the gasket have become hard so it can not make perfect fit with filter holder. In both above case you have to replace the gasket. Finally their is aposibility that the gasket is dirty with coffee remains and again we can not have a perfect fit. You can use a hard brash with the water running so you can clean the gasket.
With this case you can unsrew also the shower from the grouphead and clean it also for better coffe results

I think our heating element is bad on our Ascaso...we checked it with an ohm meter. When we turn it on, the water doesn't heat up, and there's no steam. Is there anywhere we can get a new element for...


Sounds very much like the element has gone. Mine went after I moved house (suspect something happened during transit). Mine was replaced by a heating technician who wasn't even an official Ascaso agent, so I guess the answer I would give would be go to a local heating systems technician/company. Mine cost a bit more than that, but I got them to change it, so if you're doing it yourself you might get it for under $100.

You may need to replace the ascaso boiler element, if machine is between 3-6 years old then it probably is the element.There are a few of these, you just need the the manu date under the machine. Dream Arc Basic Ellipse 150 Products
