Default Mounting Elements in Keggles

How far should the threads on a 120V water heater element screw into a keggle?

I can barely fit the SS nut on the the threads on the inside, and can't fit the nut on at all with the silicone o-ring washer.

Should I file on the hole a hair or two more?

Is the element washer still in place? Try removing it if so.

D'oh!

That's it, I thought that was part of the element.

Good call.

No sweat. I trip over the obvious all the time (my feet).
I'm glad that you got it worked out.
