    VBM domobar super constantly dripping

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My machine has an incontinence problem! Just recently it has started constantly dripping from the drain port when sitting idle. Then when the lever is pulled it takes several seconds before water comes from the group head.

    Im assuming theres a failed gasket somewhere in the diagram below...


    Anyone able to suggest which, and/or advise a repairer in Melbourne? (probably needs some loving from 2mcm...)

    thanks
    matty.

    Yes Matt,

    It will be one or more of the group valves- labelled 8, 22 & 16.

    Im happy to give it a one over for you.

    Must be #8, it holds brew pressure fine. Might have to pop the mushroom out and take a look... (not that I want to see what my mushroom looks like, it was pretty ugly last time!)

    Yep, inspection says its torn up and badly compressed. Lots of scale building up again too. :0(
