Boiler heating source was gas only but prepared for electrical heating element. See below
Replaced single safety valve with Mater pressurestat, safety- and vacuum breaker valves.
Installed a 2400W FAEMA heating element from FAEMA Compact instead of the 1500W standard issue. It had to be turned 180 degrees for not to touch the bottom of the boiler. The trade off is that the water level must be set higher. I made a minimum mark on the sight glass measured 7 cm from top of the drip tray.
Testing the wiring setup
The old gas burner regulator under removal
With these closed boiler systems you tend to get stale water quickly so I added a ball valve to the sight glass fitting to be able to empty the boiler into the drain box. It works like a charm.
New lever head, spring, piston and seals.
The Lambro is finished
You might have noticed that I changed the original steam valve/wand to a ball joint type. The steam/water valve can be purchased as sparepart. Look for Faema Replica steam valve. These can also be seen on VMB/Vibiemme espresso machines as well.
