1 Begin by following these procedures:
Fan Removal
Rear Cover Removal


      With the rear cover removed, disconnect the wires marked in this photo. If you choose, use a pen-style liquid paper applicator and mark the wires with a code you can remember (numbers or series of dots) and record this for proper replacement of the wires). The wires are in pairs:

1+2 - Bean Ejection Solenoid
3+4 - Drum Motor
5+6 - Heating Element
7+8 - Thermal Protection Link

      The two unmarked wires between 2 and 3 are for the cooling circuit and need not be removed. The two at the far right are the power cord and do not need to be removed. Take care to not scrape or damage the insulation of the wires.

3 Next, remove the two rubber feet at the rear of the machine as indicated here by the green arrows. They are pressed into place and held by friction. Simply pull while "unscrewing" them and they will come out easily. Remove the 11 screws as indicated by all the arrows here. Note that there is a sticker over one of the screw holes which needs to be removed to access the screw beneath it.

4 When all of these screw are removed the base can be separated from the machine. The bottom of the cooling tray stays in place on the machine and is not removed during this procedure.

5 When reinstalling the base it is important to note that two different types of screws are used. On the left is a self-tapping screw. On the right is shown a machine screw.

6 The four machine screws go into the locations marked with the yellow arrows. The blue arrows indicate the locations of the seven self-tapping screws. The red arrow indicates an unused hole in the base. No screw goes there.

Replace the screws in the following steps, but do not fully tighten.
a - Replace the Base on the machine, and verify that the various mounting tabs of the Side Panels are properly engaged with the base and metal framework.
b - Replace the Rear Cover.
c - Verify that all panels have been properly aligned, then tighten the various screws while holding the parts in alignment.

      Complete the process by reassembling:
