I understand how frustrating that can be. Hope we can resolved it quickly.
There are two possible cause why it takes longer time to heat,one is the thermostat.
The thermostat is a measuring tool in your espresso machine and directs a flow of heat through the element until a certain temperature. When it reaches a high temperature, it signals the machine to shut off. If you find your espresso machine not heating up, check the thermostat, it might get stuck in the off position and is not turning back on. Make sure to replace your thermostat in that case.
The second one is the thermal fuse.
These are designed to fail if the heating element gets too hot by preventing power from getting to the heating elements. If the heating element in your espresso machine does not heat and your thermostat is working, then check the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse works to prevent overheating by blocking power from getting to the heating element and works with thermostat. If it fails to work, then it is best to replace your thermal fuse. As a safety precaution, remember to unplug espresso machine from power source before installing new fuse.
Hope it helps.
