Hey chaps,

I've just gotten a new Rocket R58 v2 delivered a couple of days ago, and I noticed that it's leaking from the drip tray (specifically from the bolt in the middle).

Here are some pictures of it:

It seems (to me at least), that the O-ring isn't large enough (shown by the gap in the bolt), and thus isn't doing it's job effectively.

I'm awaiting a reply from the distributor, but wondering if any of you peeps seen this thing happen before, and what a recommended fix would be!

Thanks in advance!

Alex

go to a hardware store or plumbing store and get a rubber washer that fits.....or wait for your distributor to send you one. If you are feeling adventurous, you could cut one out of an old piece of soft plastic or rubber sheet...just be creative.

Thankfully my distributor is sending me a new drip tray, and some coffee for compensation. So I'm happy :D

As I hate finding a forum post with the exact problem I have, with no resolution, or worse....a "I've fixed it!", with no mention of what's been done.......

The solution for me was to get another O-ring, same size, and put it on the bolt, so that you have two O-Rings, then FINGER tighten the nut.

This does not affect the machine aesthetically, nor does it affect function in any way.

Zero drips after a 24 hour test on a full drip tray.

Hope that helps anyone with the same problem!
