You really don't need it. You should have a cloth nearby to clean the wand when you're done. So if for some reason you need to move the wand (and with it's meagre rang of mobility I don't know why you would) be sure to grab it with the cloth because it gets really hot. The rubber thing is just there to avoid lawsuits I'm sure. USA USA!

I initially replaced the o-rings in the pipe/valve assembly. It didn't work for long (not correct size o-rings probably). I then bought a new pipe-valve unit. To replace you need to pry off the stream handle (chromed plastic). It only fits one way on the axle (so take notice when replacing!). Then remove back and side covers (6 screws all at the back). Then remove top (2 screws each side at the front and a couple at the back). Then the front panel should be lose. (Instructions based on a slightly different model)
Mine made better coffee after I fixed the leak! A large portion (perhaps 25%) of the water intended for the coffee went via the steam wand straight into the drip tray, which is not good.
I have a Pirahna 336 Floor steamerModel No.3001. after i fill the unit with water and turn it on , it dumps the water in 1 lot on the floor instead of turning it into steam. I took it apart and found on the base of the water cannister there are 2 orange rubber spacers approx 30mm wide x 10 mm thick either side of another Rubber washer 30mm wide x 9mm thick which covers the hole where i would expect the steam to come from. This Ribber washer has lost just about all of it's orange rubber covering as it has perrished. Can you advise me where i can procure a new washer and if by renewing this washer will it fix my problem?
For repairing your steam valve you must take it out from boiler(2 screws m6 hold valve to boiler) before unscrew valve you must take of valve plastic knob and steam pipe.
Carefully you take off the seal of valve, seal prevents axle from completely unscrewing.
You unscrew the axle and you go to turner (metal parts shaping machine) there you repair the top of axle, it is like pencil, you only need to sharpen it a bit, than you change 2 o rings in axle, put it in back.
Instead the seal you use now one fitting !/4" and you screw it on to prevent getting out the axle
1: do you pres the switch for steam and wait until it is ready?
2: how long time machine needs to be ready for steaming?
solution 1 =
if you don't press the steam switch on you will have very small amount of steam.
solution 2 = if the machine gets ready only for few seconds to steam, than you must change your steaming thermostat attached in boiler(there are 3 of them:
2 coffee brewing
i hope you fix it soon and enjoy in perfect espresso
there is a rubber sleeve inside, and also a hard plastic olive (like a wedding ring). When tightened, the hard olive compresses the rubber sleeve and it grips.
If you lose the plastic olive, the rubber remains uncompressed and the pannarello will blow off.
The olive is about the size of a wedding ring for a person with a 5mm finger (impossible I know - but the shape is like a tiny black wedding band all the same.).
There should be two rubber pieces inside the threaded collar & cap that help produce a pressure fit onto the wand itself. There is a total of five plastic pieces on my steam wand excluding the wand itself on my Via Venezia by Saeco I purchased a year ago. Sounds to me like you lost one of you rubber gromets! Just my thoughts!
you can find that ring to home depot or any other hardware store.Is called o-ring and if you bring your little part with you someone will help you to find one in home depot.This part is also used in air compression department for airgun atec.
