Lelit PL41EM blows fuse - wrong wiring or broken thermostat?

I do have to note that I did not dismantle the valve from the boiler when I replaced the casket rubber. Or am I getting you wrong?

Lelit PL41EM blows fuse - wrong wiring or broken thermostat?

In Europe and the UK, brown wires are live (equivalent to our red or black), and blue wires are neutral (equivalent to our white). In terms of operation, AC-operated devices will work equally well wired either way. This includes heaters, solenoids, motors and the input to electronic "black boxes". So, your solenoid issue is very unlikely to be electrical in

Is it a roast issue or a green issue? (Prospective new roasters; you should read this too!)

Very poor experience with Decent customer service over defective Simple Scale

Just to say that my ability to engage on this topic (and any other) outside of the "Marketplace" is extremely limited, as I need to abide by HB rules.

Fellow Ode brew grinder review

Is there any issue with alignment after running SSP burrs for say 5kg? To be clear, I have never aligned using a marker method or foil. Just screwed in, adjusted 5 clicks off chirp, and then run. I am asking if after 5kg or so, anything needs to be done, or if the burrs may drift or be

Bottomless versus double spout portafilter

IMO they should still send a working scale to you even though it makes no financial sense to them, it doesn't matter the logistics. Perhaps I am saying that from the perspective of someone who is often after ordering one important object and a few accessories to make the order more efficient, and I would feel like "well what I
