I put one gallon of water in it and it took about 40 minutes to get it to 212F. My question is should my copper worm be below the still or level with it? What do you guys think? When I put cold water around the worm it stops producing water and nothing comes out of the worm. If I remove the cord water from around the worm it starts squirting water for a while and then steam. What's going on?
