Technically for a 1 group but it will fit. You will need a gasket too.

 

You can also buy direct from Fracino. Obviously expect longer heat up times and less steam power.

 

Why are you running it from an inverter?

2850w is FC162/C just give them a call and they will advise. They will be able to send the gasket too.

 

You must have some bloody awesome batteries is all I can say!

Hi Ben,

 

if it helps the 2.85kw element will still work with a 13amp plug as well, so that might be helpful if you do take it out of the car.


Everything my heart could desire (more or less). . .

or just remove right hand side panel (simply pulls off) and locate element. You will notice it has 4 connections (2 x live and 2 x neutral)

 

you should notice 2 wires coming from the pressure stat to the heating element and then a link wire connects one leg of the element to the above it. Simply remove the link wires and your machine will be running at half power.

 

will heat up/recover noticeably slower than it is at the moment though

 

obviously make sure machine is switched off before hand.
