    Gaggia seal replacement?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Anyone replaced the group seal on their Carezza/Classic etc.?

    Anyone know where to buy them from, and how much of a faff-around it is to replace?

    Im having to tighten up the handle more and more... so its time to reseal I think.

    Coffee Mio in Thornbury (Melbourne) used to import Gaggias and service them. I think they may still carry spares for them.

    Called them, they wanted $15 for the seal, and they had a minimum on the bankcard ($25)

    Does that sound like a lot? $15 for seal sounds like a lot to me??

    Is this standard sort of dough, or should I be shopping round??

    I remember getting a seal replaced by them a few years ago and choked at the figure they gave, so $15 sounds right. Unfortunately, I dont know where else you could get such a part, so you might be stuck.

    Ah HA! - Some place in 313 Bay St, Port Melb - 96460622 (Harwun or something) so spares too!

    $6.60 for the seal, and $6 postage.

    At that price, I got 2 - one as a spare!

    BooYaa!
