    The relay to control the thermoblock will have shorted closed causing the group thermoblock to be permanently on. The safety thermostat will opening at around 110C so this is why you see boiling water coming from the group head.

    This will be the same issue as to why your steam thermoblock is staying on (from your other thread).

    The relays will need to be replaced, or, the entire circuit board. I wrote a post in this thread outlining the repair procedure. Sunbeam EM7000 Steam Wand just producing water

    The steam and group thermoblock both use the same type of relay.
