I have an Isomac Millenium. I have had this machine about 7 years. I recently put my machine on a timer and after a couple weeks of using my machine on a timer, the machine started tripping the GFI outlet. The machine has been plumbed with an automatic water filling system... so I know that it did not run out of water at any time. Can someone help me troubleshoot what is wrong? Any help you can give me would be appreciated. I just love this machine, and do not want to fork out couple of grand to buy a new one. Thanks so much.
I will start opening the machine and look inside look for water leaks, paying particular attention where the HE goes in the boiler and the OPV assembly above the control box and of course anywhere else although you have an external plumb in kit doesn't necessary means that your inside 2 way valve is actually working or if it is the lines could be clogged with scale etc etc
have you tried plugging it in directly (no timer)? have you tried plugging it in to another GFCI outlet? Next step would be to:] 1 - disconnect machine from mains 2 - open machine and disconnect heating element leads and insulate them 3 - plug in machine and turn machine on again If it does not trip GFCI now then get a good ohm meter and test heating element, each terminal to the machine's ground.
I took the cover off of my machine. I noticed that one of the silicone tubes was leaking onto the transformer which was causing the GFI to trip. Fixed the tube and moved the transformer into a better position. From what I could see, the transformer had come unglued... moved it to a better position. Seems to be working fine.
