Wondered if anyone has a similar experience. I can't see a fuse anywhere, and have checked all spade connections. Have previously replaced a sloneoid valve on this machine, otherwise reasonable good use over the last 3 years. NB - The boiler/brew water is absolutely fine. It's the Hot water and steam circuit thats gone somewhere.
Thx in advance for any advice

Is it the the Duo version with the steam termoblock? Then look for the safety thermostat on the block and push the small red pin on the thermostat. If it's the Uno version: Cleaned the steam pipe holes?

The DUOs shipped to the United States use a thermofuse on the steam thermoblock, and the hot water wand is fed from the brew boiler.

When you say they've gone somewhere, can you be a bit more specific?

When you press the hot water switch, please detail what happens.

When you press the steam switch (assuming the thermoblock switch behind the steam wand is in the ON position), please detail what happens.
