It appears my Bezzera BZ40DE is leaking from the heating element hole in the boiler.  It is a very slow leak, but I want to fix it.  Does anyone know if I just need to tighten the element into the boiler, or do I need some sort of a gasket or sealant?  Please see the pictures

What he said, order a new gasket, remove the heater element and replace the gasket, there is no short cut and you do not want to over stress the threads in the boiler.

I'm surprised the gasket is going to cost me $50!

The manual I have says to use part 5492004, but the Canadian dealer has 5492006 on his website.
