Sorry to hear about your Imex accident. Hope you arent suffering roasting withdrawals. I dont have any suggestions about a repair but I did receive fabulous service from the Korean factory when I enquired about a spare part. They actually sent it to me free of charge! I dealt with Ginny Lee via e-mails.
When I bought my Imex from Vitali, it WAS $110 (plus postage). Alan? (Vitali owner) was helpful and courteous. I seem to recall that it was more reliable to communicate with him by phone than via e-mail.
Hope this helps.
