You need to replace the connectors with the correct ones off  I/ net. Also replace the cut and twisted together cable with correct size, use proper crimp's and crimping pliers or solder.

The sleeve on the fuse looks like a piece of plastic tube ??, the thickness of it and its material WILL affect the sensitivity of the THERMAL fuse Ie the boiler temperature could go well over before the fuse melts / blows.

The connectors and wires attached were off an Audi wiring loom as that was all I had to work with to see if that would work. There is some warmth but not a lot now so possibly the too thick Audi wires are too heavy, but there is progress. 

As regards the plastic tube around the thermal fuse, that is how I got the machine, About 6 years ago. It was a reconditioned one from the Gaggia Outlet at Castleford in Yorkshire. Possibly replaced incorrectly?
