Starbucks Barista Blowing circuit breaker when turned on

I have a starbucks barista type sin006. it blows the gfi when turned on. When unpluging the heating element it will not blow fuses and the pump will work. No resistance throught the element contacts but about 10,000 ohms from element contact to boiler tank. Do I have a shorted out element?
Thanksk, Don

Hi there!

Yes I would say so. - Wel done in finding it.

Unusual for it to go this way - usually just goes open circuit.

Hope this helps you. If so, please take a moment to rate as Fixya!

Need a lid for starbucks barista aroma grande coffee pot

found it was cheaper to buy a complete barista on ebay than to buy the individual part, which was very hard to find. Mine is not a barista aroma grande, however. It was a much older version. You may have more success on ebay looking for the barista aroma grande part. Also check thrift shops in your area. Often they will have units that are not complete, and you may be able to find the part you want that way. Good luck!

Barista Zia Espresso Machine


I had the same problem. The Barista Zia is the same as the Barista Athena on the inside, the only diffrence between the two is the plastic shell on the Zia, and the steaming wand is on the opposite side. This is the instruction manuel for the barista athena, so its basically the same. Thanks! good luck!
