SPARE PARTS

The Arrarex machines are no longer produced since the 80s, and original spare parts have long since disappeared from the market. To retrieve any missing parts in your machine (lid, drip tray, heating element, ...), a good solution is to buy a machine cheaply from which to take off the necessary spare parts, but pay attention to the exact model, because apparently all the parts look equal but there are a lot of differences and if you buy a kettle or a lid without check the model, probably does not fit, furtermore sometime also the same model parts are not interchangeable.

The spare parts more requested (portafilter, basket, heater, gaskets) are offered as replica by some sellers.

On request I can provide only the following parts:

    NBR gaskets: cheap commercial gaskets wich different size compared to the original ones but suitable Silicone gaskets: custom gaskets identical to the original ones, food grade
