    Pesky a/v valve?

    Rebuild it! Get a Simonelli steam valve actuator o ring from a sponsor and DYI for a few bucks (if you have one like this one).

    +1. Or you can get o rings from a bearing shop, they only cost cents. Keep a few spares for quick weekend repair if needed in a few years.

    Cheers

    This is true; but these babies are Viton and are tough as nails.

    They last three times as long as anything else. Not a huge fan of Simonelli but their steam valves are almost bulletproof.

    Not a big fan of Breville parts for the record. But, I must admit, when it works, the Oracle makes one hell of a good shot.

    Wow...They must buy them for $16 and apply a 20% markup. They must have learned that from La Marzocco.

    Guess you have to buy them from the bloke in the Ned Kelly suit at the Breville spares counter?

    I use the silicone o-rings from Breville which are usually used for sealing the internal nylon tubes. Just the right size for the anti vac valve too.

    Been a while since i ordered them but i believe they are around 7c each.
