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.

I melted the rubber seal in my 4 cup Bialetti coffee maker. I forgot to put the water in it. Now I am trying to remove the smelly melted rubber from inside the threads and and coffee holder. Please how can...


I have the same problem. Scraped most of the rubber off mine with a knife. I'm going to try steel-wool next, as the whole thing is stainless-steel (or perhaps in your case, Aluminium), it should take a good sound beating.
I wonder if there are any solvents that would dissolve the rubber?

DONT KNOW HOW TO USE THE LEFT SIDE


Add water to the left side, tighten well. Put milk in the stainless steel carafe.
Add coffee to the left side container in the filter basket. Place carafe under the coffee container. Turn knob toward you to the 'off' position. Turn power to 'on' on Espresso (left) side. Once coffee is about halfway brewed, place stainless steel carafe with milk under the steamer with spout just below milk line, and turn knob away from you to the 'on' position. Frothing the milk is an art form and becomes easier with practice. Make sure all steam is depleted, then enjoy your cappuccino!
To make espresso, do the above without the milk.

The water resevoir leaks all over from teh cva2650. It is not cracked so what could be the problem?


Several possibilities. Tubing from the reservoir socket could be expanded or not tight on the connection. The end of the reservoir may not be tight in the socket. A gasket may be missing in said socket. The socket maybe pushed into the housing. The retainer for the reservoir may not be holding the tank in tightly.
Most problems stem from the rubber fitting the reservoir plugs into. Check it carefully.
