  • Procon pump leak

    The procon pump on my Rancilio S26 has sprung a leak.

    Ive removed the pump to inspect, but a bit of a search tells me they cannot be serviced and must be replaced.

    I also read that the fluidotech pumps may now have the market edge over procon, although some seem to experience trouble drawing from a tank (which is what I do) - but I suspect there are different circumstances at play.

    If fluidotech is the go, what is the appropriate model/part number and where can I source one? Coffeeparts only seems to carry procon.

    I have also read about people overseas sending their pumps away (to procon agents) to be rebuilt. Is that possible?

    Any advice?

    Wrong you can buy a service kit for them Or if it is easier Roehlen industries (Procon importer) used to run a service exchange program. You send them yours and for some $ they send you a working one.

      Thanks beanflying, Ive sent Roehlen industries (http://www.mold-tech.com/worldwide.php#Australia) an email to enquire about the service exchange program.

      If you get a service kit, what is involved in refreshing the pump? Is there an online guide to doing this? Are there particular skills/tools required?

        Looks like they can be rebuilt. Response from Procon....

        The cost of repair for the pump you have is $102.37 + GST. Freight (if required): $25.00 + GST. Lead time: 3-5 business days.

        Whats the consensus here, rebuild or new?

          Changeovers were new bearings, seals and vanes plus a hone if needed. So it is for all purposes a new pump with an old casing. New pumps from them will be less than buying off the coffee industry generally too.
