    FrancisFrancis X1, Replacement Boiler

    My FrancisFrancis X1 stopped heating water after 3 years of almost daily use. It had been leaking and I have replaced the gaskets twice, but the problem was more serious which I discovered when I opened her up and found a rusty mess. The brass boiler must have been leaking at the seam with the lower head. The connecting bolts and support plate are completely rusted out.

    I would like to replace the boiler and lower head myself. Does anyone have any experience with this? Any recommendations for finding the replacement parts? I hate to scrap the machine just yet, but am hesitant to pay FF up to $300 for a repair.

    Additionally, the boiler seems to be permanently connected to the electronic thermostat by two small black wires. Does the boiler need to be ordered with a new thermostat? Any input is welcome. Thanks very much.
