3. Use a 30mm socket and impact driver to unscrew the old element from the boiler.

4. Replace the element and the gasket; you'll need to tighten the element with the impact driver to get it tight enough not to leak.

5. Power the machine on and allow the PID to initialize, then immediately lift the brew lever and allow water to flow from the group head for 30 seconds *before the machine begins to heat*.

*Be careful not to skip this step. There is no auto-fill function for the machine's brew boiler. Failing to re-fill the brew boiler after replacing the heating element will damage the new element and could cause further damage to the machine.
