I found that a T-8 tool fits the screws perfectly. you have to have the wrench, the bits won't fit in the hole. If they are already buggered, a drill bit takes them out quickly. I'm looking for a heater element for mine, it seems hopeless. Cuisinart of course won't sell me one.

Good luck!

My truck builds air 4 or 5 times in a row on its own. Then all the sudden it stops and wont. If i put it in nutral and rev it up real high it will start building air again. What is causing this?

Sounds like your Unloader is hanging up. What type truck and year?
1 check air line to govenor make sure no leak.
2 Check dis-charge hose or pipe.
3 Check to make sure air drier pop off valve is not leaking
4 The unloader valve in compressors become gummed up and o-ring break and cause valve to hang up in open position which prevents it from building air.
Good luck

I have a mazzer luigi coffee grinder on which set is the best coffee you get

grinding setting is one simple operation but requires a bit patience:
1 turn on your grinder and continue setting to fine while burrs are spinning, you stop when you hear metal to metal touch sound(burrs maximally closed finest ginding) 2 from that point go back quarter of revolution and mark the spot where you stopped with marker to body of grinder and setting plate with one line 3 grind little amount of coffee only to fill one sector of dosser than test it at your machine(if it leaks too fast and with yellow color of cream you should go to more fine>><< if it does not leak from the filter holder or it leaks very slow you go to in opposite way. 4 you test grinding few times bit after each reset of plate grind little amount and take that in one other pot (that will provide to have pure new granulation) 5 after setting measure the grinded coffee that come out from doser it should be about 7 grams, better measurement you can get if you measure 10 doses in one place because you don't get never same amount from 6 sectors of doser.
PS: the pump pressure of coffee machine should be from 8 to 10 bar and steam pressure should be from 1.1 to 1.5 bar> depends on type of coffees you use.

Dear Rodeo mary,
Before you do anything else, please first defrost the fridge. Yes, turn it off and leave it open for a couple of hours until all the ice in all compartments has melted. Clean it and put it on again. Is it ok ? Please let me know.
