Hello everybody! I'm new on the forum and I'm looking to see if you smart people can help me out? I've recently acquired a F!F! X5 machine. I was given the machine to do bodywork on it and repaint it because it was rusting very badly. The reason it's now been given to me to keep is because in the previous owners haste the boiler unit was taking out to repair the o-ring and no pictures or documentation were made as to where the wires go. I've searched everywhere for a picture or diagram and the only thing I've found is two pictures but the wiring on the boiler is different. Now I really just need to know what wires plug into the the boiler and related switches on top and also where the ground wires go. All the other wires such as lights, plugs, switch are still intact. If anybody could help me out I would greatly appreciate it I just at wits end I've even called illy and was referred to another company and I was told they could nit give me info due to liability. Ahh sigh, I just want to enjoy some great espresso! If pictures are needed just let me know. Thanks again.

Here's a tip- Go to the User review section and contact anyone who has reviewed it and ask them to take a photo of the interior.
After a while, if you cannot get any assistance, maybe some images of the inside could get some help.
Maybe a pot on Home Barista with a specific topic request ("Need wiring diagram of FF...") would do it.
