    Ulka parts

    Hi all

    Anyone found a place for Ulka parts? Specifically the rubber mushroom on the output side?

    Cheers

    At (currently) $50-$80 for a replacement pump, depending on model, spare parts are almost not worth it...... and from what I can see there are only a handful of parts available.

    Same old story. Part worth a few cents, new pump required. Mind you I’ve had a good run cannibalising

    Yes it is same old story, up to a point.
    Ulka vibe pumps are well known for their longevity of trouble free service.
    People like Coffee Parts have to invest thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars, in their spare parts inventory to service the enormous number of makes and models
    of machines and grinders and other coffee paraphernalia. Sometimes just to sell one item once a year......... or decade.

    I also suspect if parts on the pump need replacing, the pump its self may well be reaching the end of its useful life and need replacing.

    I replaced the pump on my Bezzera after approx 7 years, found it was losing it's punch, a new pump made a significant difference.
