The essential seals that you will need to keep the little guy running perfectly.

How often should I replace the seals?

Depends on how often you use TLG and how careful you are. On average, we would expect the following:

The Boiler Cap seal and the Group Head Seal are the two major seals in the machine. They make sure that the machine creates the correct pressure. they need to be regularly cleaned in the case of the Boiler Cap seal lubricated.

  • The Group Head seal should be replaced every 12 months to 24 months. 
  • The Boiler Cap seal should last 6 to 12 months and should be replaced regularly. Some customers have managed to keep the same boiler cap seal for between 2 to 5 years by being careful and not over-tighten when filling with water. Also, adding a little cooking oil to moisten it now and again will help. Hand tightening rather than using the group handle also helps. Caution, if the boiler ring is old and the rubber is too hard it may not seal correctly.
  • All other external seals should last 3 to 5 years.

You can change these seals yourself at home - other seals require the machine to be pulled apart by the service team.
