Our 80s Saeco esspresso machine started playing up recently. It trips the house fuses after plugging in/switching on. I disconnected the compressor and it still tripped the fuse so i think it must be the heating element. I'll try to test in the same way, but if it is, easy to remove / find parts and repair?
Any insight into this system/machine would be great!
