Nice Barista resource with many pictures

This is a good resource for the Starbucks Barista. If you have problems with it, the pictures are better than mine, except for the actual pump section.

Spent three hours today taking apart the pump, cleaned every part and soaked what I could in vinegar to get and old non-working Barista (sin006) working again thanks to your awesome pics and tutorial. Thanks a million!

Hi Brownbag
Can you help?
I use the Ulka E Type EP5 in coffee vending machines (Italian Adimac Machines)
Can you guide us where to purchase the little nylon/plastic ball (4ml / .16"} that is featured in your excellent dis-assembled pump pictures?
Is there a substitute 'ball' from another use...maybe?
Reply direct also to culling@quik.co.nz
just in case I miss this blog

Thanks Rod, my old Saeco Vienna use the same pump. I made the repair you propose and it work fine !
These machines can work for years and years.

Thanks! Wrote a longer comment, but lost it when logging. Suffice to say, thanks for the encouragement and pics. It saved what could have been an ebay disaster!

ULKA PUMP Repaired OK
Take a look what the fault was.
The spring that attached to the White Valve has snapped. If you are careful, re-assemble the spring into it's housing then with a stanley-blade prise out the spring to fit again onto the white valve.
Now then how do I post the photo?
