#1 Thermostats are not working properly
#2 I have to push reset button on the side of the boiler nearly every time I turn the machine on to start the boiler, then it heats continuously. I have to guess at the temp for espresso and shut it off as soon as I steam milk. I'm afraid if I left in on, it might overheat.
#3 Steam selector does not light up when selected.

By removing the top four screws on the lid (with the water tank removed) and looking inside the machine you will see three (3) thermostats. The two (2) thermostats on the top of the boiler do not reset. Leave those be. The 3rd thermostat which is mounted on the side of the boiler facing the front near the switches is the safety thermostat. If you look closely you will see that in-between the connectors is a small circular button. Carefully push this in with something long and narrow (not an object that will conduct electricity) and the thermostat will have been reset. If this does not work and the button does not press in, you will need to replace the safety thermostat.
If the machine is less than 4 years old there are reset buttons on the outside edge of the boiler. There are 2 wires going to 2 thermostats. In between the wires on the thermostats are reset buttons. 1 on each thermostat. They are hard to get to but they might restore you machine. if not it could be your PCB board.
If its older than 4 years there is a reset button on the back of the boiler with just 1 thermostat. Reset button between the wires again.
If the machine turns on and cycles normaly your heating element is probably gone, but if your machine is less than 4 years old you may have a thermostat that can be reset. They are located on the side of the boiler (round boiler and hard to get to) and there is a reset button between the wires going to the thermostats (2). Push the button and listen for a faint click. That may help, but not guarenteed.
There are 2 reset buttons on the side of the boiler if you have the neew J boiler.
If you machine is older, there is a reset button in the back of the boiler towards the bottom of the boiler. Push in between the 2 wires on the black thermostat on either boiler. Its harder on the J boiler because the thermostats are between the boiler and the side of the machine.
Once you get the top off, there are 2 thermostats on the top of the boiler. Your looking for the thermostat that is on the front of the boiler with the red button . Push the red button. If that didn't work check the ohms reading on the element. It should read 12 - 16 ohms. If it doesn't replace the element. Also did you try to turn on the steam button? Sometimes the thermostat with the red dot on it goes bad. If it will steam just replace the brew thermostat.
Hi There are 2 boilers in your machine. There is a main boiler on the left rear of the machine. It should have 2 thermostats that each have a reset button. The buttons are between the 2 wires on each thermostat. They are on the outside of the boiler between the boiler and the outside of the machine. Push the buttons and then try again.
Hi It depends on which boiler you have. If you have the round boiler (looking from the front top down, they will be on your left side). They will be on the bottom left side of the boiler. There are 2 of them on the round boiler and there are 2 wires to each thermostat. The button is between the 2 wires on the thermostat. You need to push both buttons. If you have the square flat boiler there is no reset button but a thermal fuse on the back side of the boiler. You have to remove the steam boiler ( horseshoe) to work on the flat boiler. FUN
