Description
 

If you are having trouble with vapor lock on your espresso machine, try this vacuum breaker valve. What is vapor lock? It is when you put your espresso machine on a timer so it will be ready when you get up, only to find that as soon as you open the steam valve, your pressure drops to zero in a matter of seconds and your group is not hot.

You can either use it like it is or you can attach a piece of silicone tubing to the top and tap into the discharge side of your expansion valve or where ever else you would like to divert any moisture that escapes from the top prior to it seating.


**NOTE**: We know this valve will not work in Pasquini or Mini Vivaldi espresso machines. There is not enough clearance between the top of the boiler and the top cover of the machine. If you want to attach tubing to the top, it's best to have at least 2" of clearance.

Service as it should be February 25, 2017
Reviewer: Roy Reeves from Plano, TX United States  
I have had my Andreja Premium for over a decade.  I am fortunate that it has only needed repairs twice, both times a tech a Chris Coffee was available to help diagnose the problem, suggest a test or procedure to narrow the issues and recommend an appropriate solution.  Shipping was fast and my machine is back to full operation.

Reviewer: michael from IL United States  
Chris's customer service walked me through the repair -- it was super easy, fun and saved me a few hundred $$ and avoiding the hassle of driving it to a shop.

Works great. September 17, 2016
Reviewer: David Bigham from Oklahoma City, OK United States  
Now I can put my espresso machine on a timer to save some electricity.  With this valve, I no longer have to bleed off pressure by opening the steam wand in order for the machine to fully come up to temp.
