I need to replace the pump switch on my Via Veneto.
It's literally falling apart...

The 3 torx screws were removed from under the top case but I can't figure out how to remove the steam knob.
I *think* I've pulled hard enough, feels like there's a mechanical lock.

Any idea how to remove this knob?

Your help will be appreciated!
Thank you

I just tried pulling it off again with no success...

A diagram would be greatly appreciated.
I could only find this one: http://www.service-manual.eu/manual.php?file=Saeco-578.pdf
It shows something called 'Attacco Rapido' mounted axially with the knob. It's hard to tell what it really is.
My machine is model SIN 013AX, bought in Canada.

Thank for the help!
Martin
