I have had a Breville BES860XL espresso machine for about 2

I have had a Breville BES860XL espresso machine for about 2 weeks and loved it. I then tried to change the beans to decaf. I emptied the hopper of the regular beans and then was finally able to get the outer burr off to empty the burr grinder of the beans. I tried to replace the outer burr, but couldn't get it locked (I later discovered that it needed cleaning so it could sit down all the way). I replaced the hopper and tried to grind the decaf. It ground the beans very coarsely and the hopper and outer burr would stuck very tightly (jammed I would say). I thought I would never get the hopper and outer burr off. I had to get a skewer to reach inside to get the outer burr to move so I could remove the hopper and outer burr. I cleaned everything and put it all back together easily. However, now the grind wheel adjustment does not seem to make any difference in the grind. I don't see any damage to the wheel or burr, but am afraid I damaged something by not locking the outer burr down before trying to grind. Is something else going on here or have I messed up my expensive machine?

coffee flow most times is very slow and often non existent.When we remove and wash the brew group it may give good flow, next brew may be very slow or none at all. We have to repeat this procedure every time, needless to say we are disappointed in our Gaggia.

Is replacing the heating element on a Rancilio Silvia espresso

Is replacing the heating element on a Rancilio Silvia espresso machine a do-it-yourself project, or does it need a professional service tech? If it needs a technician, are shops that work on these machines easy to find? (I am in Boone, NC - the northwestern corner of the state.)
