In all honesty, your money would be much better spent if you put it and some more into another machine. Yours is pretty much a use it till it breaks and throw away machine, sorry for being brutally honest.
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

She describes the valve as part number "E614." I wasn't able to find a US source for that valve online. Some modification of the valve was required; as were adapters to get things to couple together. If you try to follow their work by analogy, it may be possible to replace the stock Delonghi part with a brass bit.
But if you find that valve (or the even beefier model used in the Quickmill Andreja -- see below), and a way to fit that valve inside the Delonghi's housing, you may find it costs half as much as a new BAR32.
