    • Using wire strippers, strip the cut wires from your coffee machine near their cut ends to expose 2 cm of metal conductor from each.

    • Use a similar procedure to strip the wires from your replacement heating element. Using wire strippers, expose 2 cm of metal conductor from the ends of the wires.

    • Prepare two crimp connectors by filling them with dielectric grease.

    • Use a crimp connector to connect a stripped end of the wire leading from the replacement heating element to the stripped end of the corresponding wire from the coffee maker.

    • Using a second crimp connector, repeat for the remaining pair of stripped wires.

    • Using the appropriate crimping tool, crimp the connectors.

    • Apply dielectric grease to the insides of two new crimp connectors.

    • Insert the stripped ends of the wire into the crimp connectors.

    • Locate the ends of the replacement power cord. These should be already stripped; if they are not, strip 2 cm from them using wire strippers.

    • Feed the ends of the replacement power cord into the crimp connectors. Crimp the connectors using the appropriate crimping tool.

Conclusion

After the wires have been spliced, the new power cord is ready for use with your machine.
