Hello!

I'm freaking stumped on this. Last night my Medea was working fine, but turned it on this morning only for it to build up pressure only for it to push it out the top in an angry explosion, then repeat the process.

I'm not really sure where to even start with this one, so any ideas would be appreciated!

Attached is a link to a reddit post I made, it has the video attached showing what's up. I would attach it here but not sure how lol.

Sounds like you've got a problem with the heating element not turning off. You've got an unsafe situation that I wouldn't repeat.

Since you've already got a thread running on Reddit, why don't you follow up there?
