hello all, my two year old tea took a dump yet again. this time i turned the unit on. it was working normally. i came back two hours later, and the machine was only warm, and the power light was the only light on. i turned it off, and on again, only the main power light comes on. no auto fill, no boiler. there was no pressure in the machine either. the pump works when i lift the lever. i really need help on this one. any suggestions are greatly appreciated. thanks.

Just a quick check, but did you check to make sure the reservoir has enough water in it?  The water level sensor is also sensitive to water that lacks ions (e.g. RO water or distilled) and may shut the heating element down.

If it's not this issue, then hopefully someone with more experience with your machine will be able to chime in soon.
