Check for water leaks near the PCB. Otherwise, its most likely the steamboiler element has earth leakage. You can check for this using the Resistance setting on a multimeter.

Check the brewer for visible leaks in pipes etc.. Check the orange top and bottom piston o-rings for wear. Generally its the o-rings which need to be changed. Part no. 65190

Is it noisy when the pump runs on startup? If so then the pump is airlocked, run water through the wand to release this... Depending on model, you can do this by placing a cup under the wand and pressing the jug button or turning the knob on right side to the water symbol.

Don't forget the that there's an on/off switch on the left hand side of the machine as well as the button on the front. You'd be surprised how many people this catches out.

Go to the manufacturer's website. Typically the manuals are online. If not, call the Tech people and ask for an archived copy..typically little or no cost.
