ULKA pumps parts sourcing (mushroom check valve)

La Marzocco Linea Micra owner reviews

There must be source where to get these for close to nothing same as those orings and balls. I searched Aliexpress where you find all the other stuff, but no luck in finding the same shape

Profitec Pro 700 - no steam, no hot water

Probably something you've already checked, but one of the over temp thermostats on the boiler hasn't by any chance tripped. The black buttons on the two sensors to the right of the OPV should be down

Upcoming induction espresso machine (Heylo)
