Sapper alessi kettle

The kettle has two pitch pipes (the whistle) which scale up and need replacing from time to time. How do you remove the old pipes and instal the new ones? I have bought the replacement pipes from Alessi, but no instructions.

Re: sapper alessi kettle

I bought new pitch pipes for my kettle and they came with directions. The directions from Alessi say to push the old ones out from underneath (part of the whistle that rests inside the kettle when it is closed) with a flat head screw driver. When installing the new ones, they say to only use your finger to push them in from the top, using only the eraser end of a pencil if you need to push with something. Mine were very loose, however. Also, the side with M1 or S1 etched into the brass part of the whistle should go lettered-end down into the brass tubes.

Re: sapper alessi kettle

You need to find something strong and the right diameter to fit through the hole in the back, to push out the old pitch pipes. I used a twist drill - it doesn't matter if it gets trashed doing it - it does not work anyway!

Push the new ones in gently, they should go in easily, if they are a bit tight make sure the hole is clean. Clean it out with some wet and dry sandpaper.

What causes my la pavoni europicola to make a whistling when it;s turned on?

it is normal when water heating up and pressure begin to be built in the boiler until the vacuum braker at the safety valve close
but if it continue to whistle when the green light goes off
after few minutes it means you have too much pressure in the boiler and it is realesed through the safety valve
in that case you have to replace your pressurestat or you have scale at the bottom of boiler in the entrance of the pipe leading to the pressurestat

The machine odea giro plus whistle while brewing

The scale in the pipe system have norrow at some points so while brewing and with hight pressure you here the whistle.
First I sugest to descale the machine and you may try to do it for three days repeatevly.
However if the noise will not decrease then the machine need full desasemble and remove the scale manualy. But I advice only to do the above if you have problem with the coffee quality or if the noise is so strong and can not bair it any more.

You can get a new carafe for the alessi 9094/8 and other 8 cup alessi coffee presses from Speranza Design Gallery . Search for 8003299015146 or go to this link: The cost is $24 plus shipping.

Dualit expresso 889 - faulty pump??

Actually solved this myself today. It actually was a buildup of scale as I tried a standard descaling sachet, followed the instructions and once enough scale had come out it burst back into life!!!

If you get 'any' flow at all the pump's fine so it just needs a really good cleanout - even if (like me) you think your local water doesn't tend to scale up your kettle.

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
