ok i got the replacement thermostats. i replaced all of them. i didnt have thermal grease to apply. i also changed the boiler gasket and now its 100% leak proof, so thats good.
as far as the temperature goes, its still a problem.
so far this is what i have observed
the red light never goes off.
boiler outside temperature reaches 100C when steam swith is off (tested with candy thermometer touching the boiler exterior) 3 safety breaker eventually kicks in
i tripled checked my wiring and comparing it to pictures i had taken before i started
the only thing i could see would be if thermostat have a direction maybe i went the wrong way, but my limited electricity knowledge tells me its not the case, either connector on a thermostat are the same.
Electrically, there is no difference. It is possible that the thermocouple probe is not compatible, I suppose, but this could be easily resolved by using a washer-style thermocouple and placing it under one of the brew thermostat screws. My suggestion is to ask the seller what is not compatible with pre-2006, then come back here for workarounds.
Is changing the steam wand from a V1 to a V3 just as easy as unscrewing old one and putting in new one. Is it worth it ?
