It is very ahrd to replace any of the clips on the terminals, but you can use heat shrink tubing and form an insulator on the ends. Remember its heat SHRINK, so make the covers a little longer before you shrink.

Espresso machine will not heat

on top of the boiler one cable is clipped tightly to the top under a piece of clear plastic tube.This is a thermal cutout in case of over heating,all power comes through this. Check both ends of this cable with a meter to see if there is con tinuity. If not the thermal cutout has blown and needs to be replaced. I believe this item is difficult to source.

For mine, the solution, which also applies to other similar Krups machines, was to replace the seal at the bottom of the boiler. (#MS-5015004). This seal was torn. While in there, I also replaced the piston (#MS-0697072), which seemed like a good idea, since its O-rings seal the top of the chamber. I got my parts from Nelson Appliance.

To replace the seal (from memory, so there might be some details missing or incorrect):

1. Remove drip tray, coffee drawer, water tank, and side bin
2. Remove top metal cover and one screw underneath that holds down the plastic insert
3. Remove the one screw that holds the cover inside the bean hopper and carefully pop off the grinder adjustment knob. The hopper should now come off.
4. Slide the front plate (gray/silver plastic) up until it pops off. Remove the four screws underneath it.
5. Remove the screws from the top of the unit (two at front, one in a recessed hole in the back).
6. Remove the two screws under the water tank.
7. Pry/pop the top off, and pry the side/back cover off.
8. Unplug the grinder from the circuit board, remove the two screws that hold it in place, and remove the grinder.
9. Remove the coffee line from the piston. Remove its clip and then remove the two screws underneath it.
10. At this point, you will need to disconnect most of the other wires from the circuit board or the components they go to, and you will need to unbolt the piston carrier, so that you can remove the frame that holds the grinder.
11. Remove the three screws that hold the boiler to the base.
12. Holding the shaft from underneath, remove the screw that holds the screen in the middle of the plunger in the boiler.
13. The plunger and shaft can now be removed.
14. The seal goes in the hole at the bottom of the boiler that the shaft runs through. I used a toothbrush handle to push the new one into place from the bottom. Make sure the lip of the new one is fully seated in the opening (look at it from the top of the boiler and work it into place while apply pressure from below). Once it's properly seated, there should be noticeable drag on the plunger shaft when it is moved inside the seal.
15. Reassembly is the reverse of removal.

How do you disassemble the b70?

Keurig is going to send me a replacement B70 so I decided to open it up to help others.
Before you can remove the rear panel you have to gain access to the top panel. There are two screws under the top panel that hold the back cover in place.
To remove the top panel: Open the k-cup arm all the way. You will see two Phillips screws at the very top of the curve. Unscrew and remove both screws. Pull off the top of the k-cup cover. Now close the arm. You will then see two screws at the rear that hold the top panel in place. Be careful not to break the top panel when removing. Once the top panel is removed, you will see two phillip screws on each side at the top holding the rear panel in place. Removing the two screws will allow you to “unlock” the rear cover by sliding up to remove.
Good luck and I hope this helps.

Trouble installing replcement gasket in Solis Crema SL 70

SL 70/90 Brew Head Gasket Replacement Time 1 to 2 hrs Tools # 2 allen wrench # 1 Phillips screw driver # 2 Phillips screw driver # 13mm wrench First unplug the machine. Next remove the screw in the top back of the machine. Push the top forward with your fingers. This unlocks the top and it can be placed behind the machine with the wire connected. Next rotate the steam knob counter clockwise till it stops. Inside next to the micro switch there is a brown cam. On the backside of the cam is the #2 allen screw. Loosen this screw and the rotate the steam knob clockwise until it is removed. Now remove the clip on the steam manifold that holds the steam wand. There may be a plastic tie that is securing the clip. Cut it. Pull out the steam wand and let it rest on the bottom cover. Next remove the 4 large screws that hold the cover plate around the brew head. This will allow the cover plate to drop down and swivel on the steam wand, exposing the nuts that hold the boiler on the bottom metal plate. The nuts that hold the boiler on are # 8. Before you loosen the nuts you need to remove the water inlet nut on the side of the boiler. It is a #13 wrench. Remove the water line. Now remove the nuts that hold the boiler on.

Solis Master 5000 Leaks Out Bottom in Priming

More than likely the boiler is leaking from improper descaling. Seals do not dry out but they will become hard and brittle if you descale while the machine is hot. I would say you need your boiler replaced. Another thing that will make your boiler leak is not descaling it on a regular basis.

Grinder not working on my solis master 5000

Order the replacement boiler, (be sure to empty all of the hot water from the boiler first using the hot water function on the right side of your Solis) take your time and open the machine up, the top comes off. There are 3 mounting screws that hold the boiler in place, remove them, be sure to take hold of the boiler before removing the last mounting screw. Remove and replace the wires and 2 water hoses (w/clips). The orange wires the connect to a unique plastic harness are clipped into the harness. Look closely and you'll see a little window in the plastic harness at the end of each orange wire. Use a tooth pick or a pointed device and push the metal clips thru these windows, this unlocks the wires for removal from the boiler.

Good luck and Best wishes

Taking apart a Cuisinart DGB-600

I pulled it almost all the way open- towards back and used a flat screwdriver (or small philips that can fit in space from behind) and I pushed up a bit towards center and it came right off- don't worry- shouldn't break if you just ease it out of it base on either side.

Replacing the boiler

I wouldn't recommend doing this.

There's the screws you mentioned, then there's a few under neath the front part of the machine and then there's the c clip by the steam wand and then a clip that has to be pushed at the steam valve to release the wand (may or may not have to be done depending on when it was built.)

After thats all done the top comes off slowly because its attached by hose to the boiler and to the main board in front.
