Posted Thu Jan 30, 2014, 4:22pm Subject: help needed, wiring a steam switch on a saeco aroma
I wonder if someone could help me out with this wiring problem on a Saeco aroma, old style. I recently replaced the steam valve as I was getting some dripping whenever I used the machine. I had disconnected the steam switch so I could spin out the old steam valve and install the new one. Looking back I should have just removed the switch with the wires attached, however I didn't. It is a simple 3 wires, a brown wire and 2 blue wires. I thought I reconnected it the same way I removed it, but when I turned on the machine it tripped the breaker. I disconnected the steam switch and the machine powers up fine. I think the switch got fried, so I have a new switch and want to reconnect it properly. If someone could maybe take a look at there Saeco aroma and tell me which wires go where on the steam switch I would greatly appreciate it. I have seen the wiring schematics on various sites however I don't find them very clear. There are 4 connections 2 top, and 2 bottom ones.
