Ben, have you contacted the seller? Sounds like misrepresentation to me.

I first powered it up to do a descale and see if it was working properly. Shortly after I discovered a big puddle forming underneath. Upon seeing that I disassembled the whole thing to see if anything else was wrong. I determined the leak was coming from the heating element (bad gasket). I ordered a new one along with a full seal kit. Figured as long as I had it apart I might as well replace all the seals.> > Today I removed the boiler in order to replace the seal. First thing I noticed was 1/16" (no kidding) of scale buildup on the coil. I've never seen anything like it. I also saw the same amount on the bottom 1/2 of the tank. The chrome on the sealing surface had corroded and m
ade some paths for water to escape past the seal. Hopefully the new seal will fix that. I took the heating element and stuck it upside down in a pint glass filled with Dezcal. It's bubbling and fizzing like no tomorrow. Hopefully with enough soak time it will all come off. I'll have to fill the tank after it's reassembled and do the same.> > I'm dreading finding some other probem(s). Hopefully it's worth the time and money to fix it.> > Ben> > > > >> Homeroast mailing list> Homeroast>http://www.sweetmariascoffee.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemIdx20Send e-mail faster without improving your typing skills.
