DIY  FE-AR - La Peppina

dripping from the group


if you have renewed all the gaskets but the group is dripping


the cause probably depends by the large rubber washer that works as a valve for inlet water


when the lever is up, the piston pushs the washer and avoids that the water of the kettle goes in the group

if there is a little tollerance between the piston and the washer, the washer does not seal and the water enter in the group


to solve the problem take a adhesive aluminium tape


cut a disc like the washer


glue on the piston


remove the aluminium on the hole with a cutter


usually one disc solve the dripping, but if necessary, cut and glue another disc
