The above Heating Element 230V 2x600WIRCA is also a part in...
My DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3500 Coffee Maker displays the message "Heating Up... Please Wait"..... after the quick "power on" diagnostic routine completes OK.
It has stopped getting HOT. and ends up with an error message after a period of time.

The Coffee Maker has a Heating Element numbered 2X600WIRCA as part of what DeLonghi call "The Generator Module".
Mine shows open circuit and has 188vac across the terminals.
It also has an 8" nichrome (resistor) wire across both terminals which are probably putting a small load on the circuit.
Both in line temperature cutouts are closed. Which would be normal.
The small temperature control thermistor appears to be functional.
If it's connector is pulled of the control circuit board, the unit gets a fault message on the LCD Screen & the power on diagnostic fails.

This Generator Module (with heating element fixed to it) has a part number of 7332182500
There is a diagram on
also available on
The element could be prised away from the generator if unavailable elsewhere and required for another type of repair.
Hope this helps someone else

Won't heat the water

Continuity check from the input to the output. If open, then check from the heater element to the out put and then the other side, then the switches and other safety switches. When you find an open component that shouldn't be you have found your problem. You need and ohmmeter or continutiy checker. If don't know what I am talking about get it looked at by someone who does. If you do, then I should have to tell you any of this.

Delonghi toaster elements are losing their heat

There are three likely problems:
1. The toaster and/or heater elements need to be cleaned. If they get coated with food material they will not function correctly.
2. The heater element could just be going bad. You would need to search the web with your model number to find the appropriate replacement part then open up the unit sufficiently to disconnect the old elements and replace the new elements. You need to ensure that the connections are correct because loose connections would not permit sufficient electricity to enable the elements to heat up.
3. The thermostat could be going or gone. This controls the amount of power provided to the elements and thus determines how much they heat up. Again, you would need to search for replacement part.

Why is it important that the resistance of an extension cord be small when it is used to power an electric heater?

Hi pipay thinti...
You must have little resistance (large wire) in the electrical cord because you want the elements of the heater to heat up and not the cord...if you had high resistance in the cord it would get too hot and melt the plastic coatings.

Forgot what kind of water to use - distilled or other wise can not find manual, can I get one - Model GS7RW Thanks, Susan


i am assuming it is the GS7RW garment steamer and not actually a vacuum cleaner.

any electrical item with a heating element should be used with distilled or de-ionised water.
if you live in a "hard water" area where the water contains dissolved calcuim salts, these will cause scaling and furring up of the heater element. easiest way to tell is to look inside your kettle. if there are white deposits on the base or heating element, your steamer will get the same deposits and work less effectively.

another option is to use the scented ironing waters available from many supermarkets for use in steam irons. these will not harm your steamer, and will also make your clothes smell nice as they come in a range of scents.

this link does have some instructions that may help.

Russell Hobbs RHI 405 iron - Iron switches on but does not heat up

Please check the mains cord and see if there is continuity of the main wire, from the plug to the iron. Now check the continuity of the heating element and also the functioning of the thermostat.
These test must show a continuity or the main-heating element is open.

The indicator is flahing as to say it is heating up the water but continues to do so and never heats up

What kind of Vacuum has a water heater in it?
That is a new one-- unless we are talking about a steam cleaning machine?

Tell us more about the machine, and if you can see where the Heater is?-- and the power to it, etc., etc.

Heater/fan issues

There is a safety switch which will shut the heater element off if the fan doesn't run. If the fan doesn't circulate air, the element would overheat and could possibly start a fire, so the switch will shut the element down. I'm not familiar with this heater, but I would check to make sure the fan is operating and also check for any filters that may be plugged and restricting air flow. If anything interferes with the air passing through the heater, the overheat switch will shut down the element. That's the best I can do from here. Good luck.
