Good to have a video about this. I had to change my element 5 days after I bought the new LR24. Just one thing: let the machine cool of properly, no need to risk burns...

;-)

if the element seems stuck, some heat may help to loosen it though.

Still good to ensure the pressure is zero so the hot water will not blast out into your face ;-)

Nice videos Frans!

I find a crowsfoot wrench very handy when accessing bolts/nuts nested deep in the machine.



Eventually you will end up with a lever.

Great video Frans! What's the weight of the hammer you use for tapping?
