New to this forum. I've spent hours, trying to find an answer to my question. I've got this beautiful looking Moulinex Type 310 espresso machine (well, not a real espresso machine since it has no pressure).
The problem is, there are two pumps supplying the heating element with water. But the impellers in said pumps are round. The flappy things dried and broke off. Is there a way to repair this? I have no clue where to look...

HI, Our security program will not let me access your link. I did a google search and could not find much of value about that maker. My guess is that you said "impellers" so they are rotary pumps. Yes some pumps have rebuild kits or you can replace the pump head and reuse the motor. Most are pretty "stock" parts, often Roto Flow or similar pump head.
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!
