step (9) details how to bleed the air from the water supply hose from the tank

it is critically important that you do not have air trapped in that line otherwise the pump turns at very high speed with no load on it as it will not pull water if there is air in that line

as a result the pump lining is damaged, and thereafter it binds when it comes to rest at a certain position internally

aaah of course! Thanks! When doing this am I supposed to squeeze the hose to prevent water spilling all over and on the pump when attaching to it?

yes just pinch the silicone tubing between your forefinger and thumb; it is very supple so there is no issue

there is very little pressure from the water in the tank so you aren't having to squeeze the life out of it

a bit of water sprayed around will not do any harm providing you have the machine unplugged from the electrical supply

within 30 minutes of turning it back on afterwards i promise you that the heat from the boiler will have driven out every last drop of moisture from every nook and cranny in the machine, wherever you splash water

try not to spray more water around than necessary obviously, but equally, dont worry about any that does get splashed around either

kind regards

reiss.

Emil, when working on a tank fed Londinium, I always find it pays to have a glamorous assistant standing by, with a plentiful supply of towels.
