Hot Water connector broke off on Steam Boiler

Post by rhinoevans »

I was working on my S1, doing some minor maintenance and noticed a lot of calcification around the HOT WATER connection on the steam boiler. Was going o replace the water lines and as I tried to loosen the cap the 90 degree elbow connection broke off. Trying to remove what is left in the steam boiler. Tried an easy out with no luck. See attached pic. New boiler is $400, so would rather invest in a new machine (Profitec Pro 700). Any ideas on how to fix. In 13 years never used the hot water feature. I ordered new 90 degree elbow fro Chriss Coffee, now just trying to figure out how to get the rest of the old connector out. I would not mind if I just sealed the hole, since don't use it any way.

maybe soak it in some descaler and then try an easy-out from the hardware store.

Thanks. Think after the Holidays I'll just take it to a machine shop and see if they can fit it. Waiting on the elbow connector from Chris Coffee

Got the broken piece fixed. Anyone know what to put on the threads of the connector on the steam boiler. Type of sealeant

For the release valve on top I was told Teflon tape.
You might call Chris Coffee to see what they recommend.
