Work on ISS. Replacement the Water Dispensing and Heating Unit (БРП-М) (photo)

June 10, the crew reported smoke and a burning smell coming from the Water Dispensing and Heating Unit (БРП-М) inside the Zvezda module. Steps were taken to isolate the ISS ventilation system and fire response procedures were executed by the crew, however, the smoke quickly subsided after the БРП-М was shut down.
The system was subsequently dismantled and removed for stowage inside Progress M-23M. Oleg Artemyev installed a spare unit and complete associated leak checks. The removed unit was inspected, but no obvious damage was noted by the crew.
