Need to replace heater. Is there any easy way to get the heater back in without tearing the entire unit appart. There is one 1/4 screw behind the drum you cant to.I got it out but I dont think I can get it back without removing the drum. This is one of those steam units to remove the drum you must remove all that to pull the drum. Is there any other way. HERB

Very odd on such a new model. Musta been a liability thang. Would like to know the backstory on this one. Re-string might be the only way to go.
