So my Duetto never turned on this morning, no PID, no pump, no boilers, only the switch light. I did open it up and saw that this switch labeled RL30 micro st appears to have been subjected to some heat. I've had this machine for over 10 years now and it has served me well,
I'd hate to lose it. I'm planning on calling Chris's on Monday but if anybody has any ideas?

I had a Gicar fry on me once. I can't recall if it was my QM Andreja, or the subsequent Alex Duetto. What I do remember, though, is the $300 repair bill. Good luck, ten years is a good stretch.

Good luck. Chris coffee has always served me well.

Duetto has been good to me as well. Mine is over 10years if memory serves and still ticking

If it's the controller, search on the forum for JPBoyt he can repair, or sell you a rebuilt unit at reasonable costs .

So I did figure it out, small leak on my silicone hose.
I don't know how I didn't smell that one.

Are you sure it's from the silicone hose and not the heater element's green rubber gasket?

No I'm not sure, I left off the cover to keep an eye on it. I believe what you looking at is the corrosion from the copper wires, the bottom gaskets are white on this machine but there is some corrosion on one of my boiler fittings that's what I'm worried about. My GFI should have gone off too, I'm going to have to replace that.

The GFI will only trigger if there is a path to ground and just because it looks like that, does not mean there is a path to ground.
