Burnt rubber gasket smell in s. steel espresso maker

A friend left my s. steel espresso maker on the stove and burnt the gasket. The residue of the rubber seems to have adhered to the stainless steel and I am trying to find a way to get the smell out from inside the tube that is in the upper part of the unit. Otherwise, I'll have to throw it away. I've tried shoving a stainless steel pad (pulled apart) up there with an abrasive (VIM / ajax) ... to no avail. Is there any liquid solvent I can try?

There is a valve in the compartment where you place your fresh, cold water. This valve must not be covered as it is necessary in building up steam pressure to push the brewed espresso upwards. Also, most stove espresso makers have a rubber type gasket that is usually placed on the base of the upper part of the maker. Check that you have a gasket.

Smell like burnt rubber in engine compartment on passengers side. 05 plate 2 litre Focus Diesel. Engine runs seemingly happily, no odd noises, no visible warning lights or messages.


I expect that you have an oil leak that is dripping/running on to the exhaust. The burnt oil will smells a bit like rubber. Check for oil leaks that are higher up on the engine. (Valve Cover gasket for example).

Replacement o-ring


I have the same problem with my Valira expresso coffee maker. If the manufacturer does not supply extra gaskets, as they should, when the coffee maker is purchased, forget about trying to purchase them. Instead, bring the broken seal to a hardware store and find material to use, using the old one as a template. Most hardware stores have assorted sizes of round gasket that can be adapted.

Alessi coban rs04 espresso maker


Hi All,
I had the same problem. There is ONE authorised dealer for Alessi in Italy. They are Arthur Eugster Italia srl, in Asti (Piemonte). I don't have the contact number, but my friend in Italy got a complete set of seals from them, FREE OF CHARGE (don't ask me how he got it) and sent to me in Australia. Good luck

I need a new funnel for my vev vigano kontessa 6 cup stove top espresso


Usually most stove top espresso makers manufacture these parts to the same standard. Take your old funnel, go to a kitchen store where they sell Bialetti, and compare their funnel size to your funnel size (for the same size put). I noticed that usually, it's the rubber gaskets that may differ slightly. Or you could email customer service of www.vev-vigano.com.
