Your meCoffee has been designed to allow airflow over the switching elements. Please do not cover the vents.
Remove the sensor cable from your meCoffee and route it below the power button & associated cabling towards the right. Reconnect the sensor cable to your meCoffee.
Now slide your meCoffee below the power button gently.
Check if all cabling and connectors are well below the surface of the cover.
Reinstall the steam dial.
