How can the protective grid that comes with the thermostat be removed and remounted?
The protective grid must be removed in order to carefully clean the functional parts (circulation pump, float, and the heater).
Important: The machine must be turned off and the electrical cord must be unplugged! Do not lay the sous vide thermostat on its head - doing so will allow water to seep into the machine!
Take the sous vide thermostat out of the sous vide water bath and diligently dry it. Do not allow any water to seep into the machine.
