Such machine would be analysed by different ways depending on the team and available analytical devices. I would presume that intelligent team of scientists would try to unestractively gather info about inner working. They would ask many questions to that machine and make many logical pussles for it to solve. They would then try to use sound, radiowaves, may be some x-ray and neutron imaging of the interior. May be EMR, NMR, or other available tools. They would try to use holes or microcracks in it to see or probe what is inside. They then would make guesses about interior, shielding, voulnerability and deside whether it make sence to do to little-by little material analysis of surface, subsurface, and may be even to take some small part of it to more destructive analysis (watching carefully how it reacts on that).

Of course, it depends on what kind of machine is that - metal, non-organic, hybrid, or organic, or something completely new (well, it is hard to imagine that this something is made NOT of known chemical elements).

If the machine seems to be biological - methods are different than if it happen to be made of metal or inorganic stuff.

I wonder, if such alien machine would happen to come not to scientific but to religious society - what would they do with it? Most likely label it "evel" due to its oddity and then destroy.
