Subject: Olympia Cremina not heating up after new element.
 

Hello everyone,

I recently replaced the heating element on my 110 v 67 cremina with a unit I purchased from orphan espresso.

Since replacing the unit, everything seems to work fine, the power light turns on, the unit heats up, but it never gets hotter than just luke warm even after waiting a half hour.  I've checked the resistance on the element and it reads 056 ohms. Is it possible I was delivered a 220v element?  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks!
Matthew

Yes, 56 ohms would be consistent with a 1000 watt heating element operating at 240v.  Looks like you got the wrong element.
