Steam wand vivaldi II

Post by zedex »

Quick question i did a 4 page search but no luck.
I have a water drip only in certain positions where the steam wand swivels on the machine. So i have good steam and a small drip at the swivel itself. Is there an Oring or some type of seal on that swivel fitting?

There are two O rings in that area. Check out page 3 of the parts manual here: V2 Parts Manual. The 2 needed O Rings are parts numbered: 7280 and 8289. Most decent hardware stores probably have the correct sizes in stock. Take these two O Rings with you so you can match them up. Alternately, the exact replacements can be ordered from Chris Coffee Service or possibly another LaSpaziale parts source.

I have had the O ring that sits on top of the ball joint crack. That causes a leak just as you described. Once removed you should probably replace both O Rings.

Thanks Chas. The parts manual link no worky. The requested page could not be found. Funny. That top nut is not 19mm wrench, thats too small, nor is it 13/16 ,too big. Of course a have multiple wrench sets non of which have a 20mm. Must be 25/32 which i dont have. Also nut wont come loose i guess i have to take machine apart a bit.

Strange. I cut and pasted the link and it works in Chrome on my PC but not on my Android devices. I am trying to figure out why.

Otherwise, that nut probably is a 20mm. Since the machine was designed and built in Italy, everything is metric.

I think I have the link fixed in the original email. Give it another try.

BTW: When I bought my first espresso machine, I had a lot of tools but nothing metric. Now I have a complete set of metric crescent wrenches, socket wrenches, Nut Drivers, Torx wrenches, and Allen wrenches. Not all these are for the LaSpaziale.

That was easier than i thought it would be. Luckily i had seals that fit. Its a bit more difficult on this machine as its plumbed in including drainage tray. All good though. Thanks Chas for the info.
