A buddy of mine has this electric BIAB setup that was totally trashed.  He asked me if I could help him fix it.  After looking it over I decided that a total rebuild with lots of new replacement parts would be the best bet.  Its about 95% done now with just labeling to be done and waiting on the new heater element.  The original setup had a box in a box, I used the exterior box as the new enclosure for the system making a lot more room.  Why it was in a box in a box Ill never understand as it got super hot, a few of the wires had some melting.

 

The old PID did not have a boil function so the original setup had a separate boil control.  I put in a new PID that has both MASH and BOIL functions but still installed the old boil control for a backup in the event the PID ever goes down during a brew.

 

New Parts

PID and temp sensor

12V power supply

2 fans

Dual 30 amp breakers

Boil Control power switch

Boil Control LED

Internal wiring

Heating element

 

 

Old Parts

Outer box

SSR

Heatsink

terminal boards

power switch

Power LED/CB
