Rubber Gasket for Stainless Steel Element
O-RING 0176 EPDM. For Europiccola models ca. ~1996 on, or ca. ~1997 to present for the Professional. Also suitable for the Stradivari, produced after 2006. (production dates on the Gaggia G105 and G106 variants are unavailable.)
The paper gaskets for the older copper and brass heating elements are no longer available. This rubber o-ring is not a suitable replacement for the old paper version gasket as the elements have changed as well.
If your old copper and brass flange element has burnt out you will need to buy this o-ring as well as the compatible new version stainless steel heating element and accompanying flange.
Had a hell of a time reassembling as the base needs to be in one, and only one, position rotationally where it will fit properly and not leak. it seems the heating element interferes with the lower bung for the sight glass if not exactly right. Took 4-5 tries to get it right. Finally removed the tank, played around with it for a while before I found and marked the 'golden spot'.
