isomac zaffiro boiler leaking small hole need advice
Hi i had noticed that my machine was not pulling shots as it normally should. So i took a look inside and found its has a small hole on the weld at the top of the boiler. There was a snail trail running down the face and some calcium deposits on the hole. Does any know if it can be welded or do a need a new one. its a copper boiler nickle plated with chrome exterior.
You should be able to find a plumber or refrigeration tech. who could fix that up for you.
Could probably help out a bit by cleaning all around the area with a small wire brush first up, so as to reduce the time spent doing the actual repair. Probably only take a few minutes...
ok Thanks Dimal. I have sealed it with epoxy resin so i will see it works. if resign fails ill take to a plumber. Next problem.
The machine is only staying on for a few minutes then trips the circuit breaker. Any Ideas as to what is causing this. I had to remove the boiler to repair it and the only wires i disconnected where at the bottom of the boiler. i drawed a pic so i could put the wires back to there same positions. Thanks
RCD tripping could be down to several things including water contamination of exposed conductors, allowing for current leakage to earth.
Most likely though, probably due to a dodgy boiler element or Boiler Fill Solenoid Coil.
If you are not au fait with 240V AC electrics and troubleshooting thereof, I would suggest dropping your machine into a reputable specialist repairer, such as any of our Site Sponsors.
