Hello,

I recently hooked up my single group La Spaziale New EK. It had been sitting for some time but it worked when I stored it. Now it won't heat up. What could the problem be? I'm thinking that maybe the thermal fuse blew but I don't know where it is.

I press the buttons on the front and water flows out but it is cold. The green light behind the sight glass is on and I get no indication of malfunction other than the fact that the water is cold. Thanks!

Some more information. The Heating Element Ohms out good but no voltage at the element. I have power (115V) at the switch. I know the power then goes to the pressurestat but I have trouble following it from there (can't get my leads in there). Has anyone had a similar issue? Thanks!

your machine should have this safety thermostat
if pushing the red reset nothing changes work your way backward to the pstat

Thanks. I pressed the red button to no avail. I guess I need to pull of the sides to get to the p-stat now. Fun fun :-(

Wow, i had to push that button hard, but now it heats up. New problem now, it seems to over heat now. The pressure gets up to 2.5 bars. It also leaks out the hot water dispenser and the portafilter. I'm guessing this may be due to gaskets needing to be replaced.
