Question about Saeco Magic Comfort Plus Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Our machine is about 4 years old now and has recently begun tripping the GFI sporadically. In most cases it does this when the steam pump is on, either for steam or heating for hot water. Sometimes, it trips the GFI simply after plugging it in when the machine is off. Is there anyway to fix this...we need our coffee!!!!!

Hi
Your seals in the steam boiler are gone and it is leaking water to the switch below. The steam boiler is located just above the switch on the lower left side. You just have to replace the seals (O-rings)

I have a steamist lt90 that we recently installed. It stays on for about 5 minutes then trips the breaker. It was installed using #10 wire and a 30 am breaker. Any ideas?


!!!!!First look on data plate see what is the rated amperes and kW . Make sure what code is for steam generators.

Some steam generators do not recommend GFI circuits to avoid nuisance tripping.

If you can us GFI in circuit breaker you may need two hots a ground and a neutral.

As a rule
30 amps = #10 wire
40amps = #8 wire and
50amps = # 6.

Generators normally are 240vts the two hot wires connect to # 1 and #2 wires coming from unit.

How to fix a bunn coffee maker that trips a gfi


Every time I plug in my bunn coffee maker, it trips the GFI. But when I plug it into another plug in my kitchen, it will work, but it seems like the water reserve is not right. It blows too much steam and the top starts lifting up from the pressure of the steam, then it starts leaking out the top left side. Then if I pour enough water to make 10 cups, it only makes 6 or 8. The coffee maker is only 3 years old, what should I do?

GFi breaker blows


There is an electrical problem with the brewer. If you will please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine, and call customer service, we will be happy to assist you with this. The machine has a 3 year warranty and if the machine is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a reduced price.

Rule H53sp-24 pool cover pump trips GFI breaker


GFI devices are prone to degrade over time. Also, when used outdoors there are additional moisture issues that may cause sufficient current leakage to trip the breaker.

I had a similar problem this Spring. I was using a 20 amp GFI "master" outlet that protected two additional outlets 'downstream' of it (wired to the 'load' terminals on the GFI outlet- I'd have the check the doc. to see what terminology was used here). The pump was plugged into one of the downstream outlets.

Replacing the GFI seemed to solve the problem. I did ante up $20 for an 'outdoor' model of the 20 amp GFI unit, several bucks more than the standard 'indoor' unit - have no ideal if that represented additional value or not.

Note also, that this is the third such pump I have used for my pool cover. The other two failed to come on at all after about a year's use. The mfg replaced them under warranty (I may have had to send back the old pump - I forget!).

You're not alone.  Same problem here.  Breakaway power cord on my Waring deep frier burnt to a crisp.  Don't known about you, but I'll never buy Waring products again.
