Subject: How to remove boiler from Elektra Micro Casa a Leva?
 

I'm trying to remove the boiler from an Elektra Micro Casa a Leva for a repair. I've removed the wires and the 4 screws from inside the base, but the boiler doesn't seem to be loose at all.

I've been reticent to just pull at it real hard without knowing if there's some other reason it might not be ready to come off.

Any tips?

sometimes the "boiler insulator" gets a little sticky
also make sure that the pressurestat pie nut is not on the inside lip
if not
and you did remove the bolts
just gently hit the base with the palm of your hand and it will get unstuck
