I have used a small amount of lube on the large seal.

Recently accepted a Trifecta Mb and a Baratza Vario-W. I might adore musings, suggestions, slants, encounters and your main event to make a stunning measure of espresso with it. Beans, strategies, superstitions, whatever.......thanks

Another maintenance related question.  I'm doing my regular 3 month descaling/cleaning and decided this time since the machine has had a year of regular use to go ahead and clean the check valves in the brew chambers.  I can get the bottom one out but I can't get the check valve for the air out - and I can see that there is coffee sediment/staining build up on the valve itself.  Is there anyway to take this out without having to take the screws out of the bottom portion of the brew chamber (and is this even recommended)?

I will say I now have the screens in my brew chambers looking like brand new, I just wish there was something I could do to clean off the staining of the bottom check valve (the one I can remove).  But I'm guessing since coffee is continuously flowing over it it will be stained.

I talked with Amanda about that a while back. Unfortunately, the air check valve can't be removed. I take my bottom valves out every month to clean them and they are still stained, clean, but still stained. Hope this helps and take care!

Yes Jim, it does help, thanks.  I also tried taking the check valve out of the water reservoir - which I thought would be pretty easy - but couldn't figure that one out either.  Oh well, I think the descaling that I did took care of the slightly stale water smell that kept creeping up in the water reservoir - even though I use my brewer at least twice a day.

Yeah, I asked about that one too, but there's no pulling the water reservoir valve out either. Same with my brewer, it gets used at least twice a day, but more often it's 3-4 times. Just like eating an apple a day, a good Trifecta maintenance schedule keeps the Bunn doctor away!

Take care!

I've unscrewed that bottom portion before. Was curious to see if I could use it with an Aeropress to eliminate the need for inversion (doesn't work). Anyway, the part went back on the brew chamber without issue.

Back to check valves, just tonight I had to replace one underneath my most well-used brew chamber, which had suddenly become leaky. Easy peasy.

We just opened our  third wave coffee shop outside Philadelphia (Devon).  We have a commercial Trifecta machine which we use to brew any of our 12 single origin coffees, all roasted in our in-house roaster 3 times/week.  It's called Pour Richard's Coffee Company, www.PourRichardsCoffee.com.  We are open M-F 7am-3pm Sat/Sun:9am-4pm., 36 Berkley Rd, Devon, PA, 1 block across from the Whole Foods Market.  484-857-9406.  
Our Trifecta is currently being repaired and should be working again shortly after New Years Day.  We'd love to have you visit our shop!

Sometimes, it's not a worn valve, but one that has been slightly unseated. I had a leaky brew chamber valve once and after taking off the filter, noticed that the check valve seemed slightly raised. Pushed it back down firmly and… no leak! I usually tap the bottom side of brew chamber a few times on the base of my hand to loosen the spent grounds before dumping them in the garbage. Maybe this constant whacking it against my hand eventually loosened the check valve. Hope this helps and take care!
