I have a NS Ellimatic.  When I turn my machine on, iit warms up and works fine.  

If I leave the machine on for a while (about an hour), I push the pump button and nothing happens. The heating element continues to work normally (heater goes on and off and I hear the pstat working).

I replaced the thermostat, but it didn't fix it.  Any ideas what might be wrong?  What part would cut power to the pump?

Thanks.

I found the answer.  There is a "klaxon thermal protector" fuse to protect the pump.  Mine went bad.  $9.95 at Chris Coffee.

Klaxons are great on submarines, use it just before you dive!

Congrats on the find and repair :D
