I am looking for a heating element for my Nuova Simonelli Elli/Ellimatic. Is there a possible retrofit if I cannot find one. Let me know what my options are. Thanks.
I found a parts breakdown for the Nuova Simonelli "Elli" here, along with a bunch of other legacy models.
Looking at the Elli section, I found this information on page 14:
So you are either looking for Nuova Simonelli 14100007 or 14100008
Unfortunately, Parts Town does not sell either of those parts. In fact, I am only finding those parts in old price lists available through google. It is possible the manufacturer will still sell the parts, however, I noticed many of the parts had been made obsolete. I have searched for a noted replacement but unfortunately came up empty.
Hopefully having the part numbers will now help when you contact Nuova Simonelli USA directly!
Jason, this element is not available and the machine was replaced with the Oscar which is also discontinued. The spiral element through the bottom of the vertical boiler was a real problem with leaks over time. They corrected that with the Oscar, but made a horizontal boiler so that the heat ex-changer didn't work well. If you have the right Ridgid tube bender, you may be able to make one, but you would need to know length and resistance of a blank Calrod and if you can duplicate the mount and seals. Probably why no one I can find has made one.
