It was the element and it was broke and beyond repair. Yes, it is pretty much a "it works or not" kinda thing, I guess. Had bought it at the local brewshop, less then a year ago. Went back, changed it for a new one. 2.4 KW again, only a newer, slightly bigger model. Happy that everything works again. Everything? Well tomorrow I have to fit my potstill head on my new boiler. That way I can use my 50 liter Olive Oil Can for fractionating and pot stillin' as well. Only the other way around, I guess.
