Expobar Brewtus IV-R with Rotary Pump
The machine has worked fine for about 6 months, but now it's tripping the GFP. Wondering if it was the GFP, I plugged it into a non-GFP plug. While it didn't trip the bigger fuse, it's exhibiting dysfunctional behavior.
Basically, the temperature starts climbing and doesn't stop. It was set at 206 and got up to 260 before I turned it off.

Your heating element is cracked. Your power to the element is shorting out through your boiler water, allowing the machine to continue heating forever, even after the thermostat/pressostat is off. Remove the element, clean and flush the boiler while it is open and install a new element.
