I have acquired 2 Brasilia in not working condition. One machine is a automatic with the touch panel missing and the other machine a manual. I was told by the previous owner that he tried to repair the manual machine but on reassembly it blew the fuses and he gave up. I really need to find a wiring diagram for the manual and if possible a spare parts list. Hoping somebody can help me please.

Sadly, Brasilia is out of business so you will not find OEM parts from them. I also have one of their machines so I understand.
On the other hand, most of the parts are interchanable with generic market parts as most commercial machines are.

The main reason for tripping circuits when powering on a machine is a bad heater element. Check both sides of the heater to chassis ground, you should not get continuity with water in the boiler, if you do then the heater  was powered on while the boiler was empty and it is shot (disconnect the wires to it first so the rest of the circuit is not measured)

Thanks for your help. I took the heater element out and tested it with my megga and it is not shorting out. I think that a previous owner has changed a component and not rewired it correctly.
