    CAUTION Avoid touching the white filter cap.
  7. Turn the top back in. Make sure the flat cable does not get stuck or squeezed between the top and the funnel for the flat cable and it is properly connected.

    To make sure that the radiation shield stays straight, do not tighten the screws all the way in one go. Do not overtighten.
