Well my first problem after three solid years, but my steam ball valve is beginning to hiss (aka leak). I do have the replacement (waiting in storage for a moment such as this), and have started to disassemble the bad valve. But...how you remove the silver trim that fits over the steam handle/level?? It's starting to irritate me! :shock:
Found a video...yup...just pull hard!!

Done! Also replaced all the o-rings with new ones going to and from the ball valve ( 1REC2, red 70 shore #007). All is quite/no leaks again!

Time for a Flat White!!! 8)

Bob, you didn't say if you swapped the leaker for the new ball valve. If so, keep the old one... they are re sealable. And it's an easy job, too.

Now that you have handled the hairpin clips and o-rings, you have the skills to do the o-rings on top of the steam boiler when the time comes for that job.

Hi Peter,

Yes, it was a new one (ordered from Forum Home Appliances in Canada). I believe the leak was coming right from the center ball valve itself. I did save the "old" valve. So it can be rebuilt? That's good news, as my search for another new valve is coming up empty.

Yes, after this first repair, I'm good to go from this point forward if (when) the o-rings fail.

Regards! 8)

Hah! I bought TWO from Forum. Possibly the last two. But yes, totally and easily rebuildable. Probably won't even need any parts. You just flip the seals, and put it back together.

See here: Breville Dual Boiler ball valve detail, pics

That natty old ball valve (donated to me by Kevin/klund), is still going strong with just the old seals flipped.
(OT, my BDB is now plumbed, with a remoted rotary pump. Loving it and the smooth silence).

Hey all!! Really want to express gratitude to everyone that has contributed to the threads on the bdb! It has sealed my choice, as I will be getting a BES920BSXL on 6-4-19. This particular thread concerns me a bit, but has also given a small amount of comfort as well. I did a search for the ball valve and currently don't find any available. I am a firm believer in having spare parts available for fairly critical parts or operation, any forward movement with an acceptable replacement? Or is it a mook point now knowing you can flip the ptfe washers on the ball?

It's moot. Not only can you flip the seals, possibly indefinitely or nearly so, but the seals are a standard size PTFE washer size where you can buy two lifetime's supply for under $10 delivered. And the seal on the shaft is a #008 o-ring also available for the price of dirt.

Peter, can you post links to the two washers you speak of, the PTFE and the 008, in a post below this? You know, for posterity...
