I have an ALF (not Express - i.e FAM only) that is awaiting scrapping 
here in the UK. Not sure if it uses the same heater. As you say GE 
Healthcare no longer support them and we couldn't persuade them last 
week to take it off our hands for spares.

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
