Bialetti coffee maker pressure valve

The pressure valve on my Bialetti 6-cup Moka espresso coffee maker blew out after 1 month.

I have had another unit for nearly 30 years (it still uses the same replacement gasket and basket as the new one), and the pressure valve is still intact on that one.

I did not subject the new unit to more heat than the older one.

1) Can I re-set the valve (there were no instructions in the box)
2) If not, where can I get a replacement valve.
3) Why do you think the pressure valve blew out when the older one has never blown out?

Fill it as full as you can with fine ground coffee. I cut the resulting brew with an equal amount of boiling water. Called an "Americano" in Italy.

Handle of Bialetti Moka Express 10 cup...


There is a tiny pin at the top where the handle slides into a slot between 2 aluminum walls. That pin needs to be "punched" out. I used a nail and hammer, but a tiny nail punch might be safer if you have one.
