If your steam or hot water wands squeak on your Elektra commercial espresso machines, then you have lime scale build up or need new gaskets.

  1. With machine cold, remove the wand nut (under the valve) carefully with a crescent wrench and be careful not to scratch the plating.
  2. After removal, lubricate the wand ball (on top of wand) and the spring holder with high temperature food grade grease, such as Petrogel found on our web site.
  3. Reassemble and the squeaking should go away.
