good morning to all, on my second cup and I wonder if anyone out there could help... I have an old style aroma nero, my first espresso machine. I picked it up at the local thrift shop for $15 2 years ago and it is mint ! it came with the knock box and manual, just didn't have the packaging. I have been using it regularly and loving it. I did replace the frother that it came with ( white plastic ) with the turbo frother, which is effortless. I am very pleased with this machine, and the results it gives. it has the pressurized porta-filter which seems to work well. Now this is where I am at now... I just replaced the steam valve body, shaft and knob, and the O-rings, as I was getting some dripping no matter how hard I tried to close the valve. in order to remove the old steam valve I had to disconnect the steam switch wiring so I could spin it out. once I replaced the valve I reconnected the switch. just three wires, however through carelessness or whatever I must have reversed two of the wires and when I turned the machine on it threw the breaker on my electrical panel. I disconnected the wires from the steam switch and the machine turns on fine. I have a new switch on the way as the old one feels fried. my question is how to reconnect it so this doesn't happen again. I have found a wiring schematic on line, however it is a little unclear to me. if someone could help me out here as to which wires go where it would be greatly appreciated ! thanks and have a great day :)
