Not hard to do. Unplug and drain the water. unscrew the frothing wand and tip the machine gently over a sink to drain the water in the system. Then using a box wrench (don't use an adjustable wrench or poorly fitting tool) remove the water reservoir. THen you can unscrew the pressure gauge easily. At that point, the glass is exposed. Gently twist until it's free and pull the glass up and out. When you are replacing the white Orings, a small bit of olive oil on the inside will help you insert the glass back into the orings. Then replace all the components.

My Dewalt D51825 leaks air from the piston rod. Bumper seems to be okay Can any one help?


Air leaking from nose of gun indicates air getting past bulkhead orings. Bulkhead is white plastic frame inside of gun. Replace gold colored vinyl orings with like size buna orings. Remove cylinder from bulkhead to find two bad orings. Also replace trigger valve or vinyl orings within valve including the two orings on the firing pin. Good luck.

Wife turned on machine with low water. Lights are on but does not heat up. Reset button does not


There is a thermostat reset switch that is accessible through a hole in the underside black plastic base. You can use a screwdriver to poke through the hole and depress a cylindrical push button switch. Please unplug machine and remove parts that fall off before tipping it over.

Are o rings something that should just be replaced at intervals.do bad o rings have anything to do with a quick grime buildup in cylinderseems both nailers including trim gun have same prob.sat in rear...


Orings are similar to piston rings and seals of car engine. They keep pressure /compression at peak level. Carbon buildup dirt/ grime tend to cut orings (fine scratches on orings and metal where orings make contact can be seen with maginfy glass). Air powered nailers have same problem. Air carries in dirt grime and carbon deposits leaving/ migrating from air compressir piston/cylinder/heads/discharge tube and dirt that enters hose from tool box. Debris and water cut orings lowering efficiency. Any urethaine parts inside gun will fail over time using the gun or not. Urethaine is affected by heat, water, certain types of oil. Fuel for impusle will lose power when canisters are kept in hot tool box. Always check expire date on fuel/ buy newest stock for best results.

My FC350 is leaking air from the adjustable exhaust to the point that it will not hold pressure.


The headvalve piston has 3 orings and a vinyl piston stop. The orings must be in good condition and the surface that they contact should be smooth. Look at orings and mating surface with magnify glass looking for wear or scratches. Remove scratches in head with 400 grit paper. Replace orings as needed. Some models utilize a quadring as the inner oring and should be replaced (quad ring # 910763 wears fast and causes leak) The vinyl stop should not be cracked. Parts are available at dewalt service center or www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good luck

Pressure switch to micro switch distance


The distance is not stable. You have made everything corectly and you how they work.
Now you need to uadjust the distance when the machine is workinig on. The required presure should be 1.2 to 1.3 bar which is the ideal between the temeperature of the milk and temperature of coffee. So you should hear and see the switch going of when the machine reach the above mention pressure.

Power light on, no warning light, doesn't heat up at all


Your resettable thermostat turned off the high power heater circuit and the red warning light. The heater got too hot when the boiler became empty of water. This is to keep the heater from burning out if the boiler becomes empty. To reset the thermostat, turn the micro casa a leva over. There is a yellow plug near the center of the bottom which is easy to pry out. Stick a screwdriver, pencil, toothpick, chopstick or whatever else is lying around into the hole and gently reset the thermostat button. You will hear a click when it resets. You are then ready to go.
