      My Truma boiler has frozen and has a little bit inflated, so there is no space between the boiler and the fins on some points. I bent the fins on theese points to create some space there. But then I noticed that the plate is touching the boiler too, because the boiler has inflated there too. I don't know the reason, why the plate is there and if it has/hasn't touch the boiler or the fins.
      Best Regards.

        Hi @KP I am no expert but I think you need as little space between the heating elements and the fins as possible just so you can slip the elements in but without having to knock them otherwise the heat will not get to the fins to do their work. I hope I have understood your point!

      Hello, I have read your great thread about disassembling Turma combi. I have a question of the image https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/media/img_3480.22866/. Do you have any idea, why there is the plate above the fins? Does the plate touch the fins, or is there some space between? Or does the plate touch the boiler?

        Karel - I have no idea why the plate is there other than to say that when the boiler is put back together the plate sits at the bottom of the boiler so perhaps its job is to reflect the heat upwards towards the jacket of water around the boiler surrounded by its fins, thereby making the distribution of the heat better?
