Question about Rancilio Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Do an ohms check on the element. With an ohms meter check the reading between the elements. The reading should be between 12 and 16 ohms for a 110v machine and 50 to 60 for a 220v machine. If you have no reading or a higher reading you have a bad element.
Replace the boiler

If the water is reddish or black looking the iron insides may be rusted out, and is bad enough that the seal has been compromised. This happens if water is left in iron when storing. If the iron is still warrantied return it to the store where it was purchased, or buy a new one.

I disagree... I think its the thermostat reset switch. A little red button once you open up the machine. look towards the front of the boiler and bush the button. Same thing happened to my Rancilio Silvia.... I opened it up, hit the reset switch... and voila! Working again! Here's the YouTube Video on the details. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQdJNm9RV68

Remove the 4 screws on the top panel. Make sure machine is not connected to power. Check the thermostats on the boiler, there should be 3 of them, push in on the small red pin in the middle of them one of them should click in. Now fill up your tank plug machine in and turn on.

Get yourself a repair manual on ebay, they cost less than a tank of gas. If the dealer told you which part is bad, then have him order it for you, this is not going to be a parts store item. This is a really common problem, like sitting on a toaster or electric blanket that you keep outside and use every day.
Anything that gets hot and cold over and over is going to get brittle and break.
