    Domestic source of Saeco parts?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all

    Firstly, my apologies if Im posting in the wrong forum.

    Whilst cleaning my Saeco Royal Cappuccino (yeah, I know, Ill go manual soon enough* :) ) Ive lost the brew group glass ball, presumably down the drain.* Heard a clink and that was it... Rookie mistake.*

    Its this item, functioning as the check valve for the pressure system.

    My question is - Does anyone know where I could purchase a replacement in Australia?
    All the results Ive found are American or German, and Id prefer to acquire a replacement sooner rather than later.

    This experience will certainly teach me to be more thorough, as the shot now looks and tastes like international roast!

    Any help would be appreciated (perhaps aside from bin it and buy a manual)* :D
    Thanks

    Im not even sure what a brew group glass ball is, but it might be worth detaching your sink s-bend and taking a peek - Ive got lucky with that before :-[

    Thanks for your reply DSKi. I couldnt locate it when I removed the trap, so I guess it decided to go with the flow. The glass ball really is quite tiny.

    Ahh, it was worth a try. I recently had to fish a tiny grinder shim out of my vacuum cleaner...

    Search saeco australia and you will turn up a number of outlets that are approved service centres in their localities, and also it will turn up the philips site. Philips is the current owner of saeco/gaggia.
