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
