I have a leaky fitting for my Reneka. It is the coffee boiler to group head. Here is a pic. Anyone know where to find this fitting?

Reneka part No. 9004119

Reneka International
Parc d’Activités du Rosenmeer,
3 Jean Marie Lehn
67560 Rosheim, France

Tel. +33 (0) 388 494 050

reneka@reneka.com

I have always found them very helpful.  Shouldn't think airmail would be that expensive.

Part may be available from Parkers in the USA, but they may not stock the metric versions and you would need to identify the exact component from their catalogue (available on line I think).

Thanks very much. I had emailed Reneka last week and did not hear back from them. Per your advice I have emailed them again. Hopefully someone will respond.

FWIW I bought the top one in the post above. We'll see.

****BTW, moderator, I think I have double posted. You can merge this with my prior thread, but Legris is the accurate name of the fitting, not John Guest.*******

It certainly looks right - hopefully it has the right thread. I'm not sure if there are versions with metric threads anyway (I just kinda assumed there would be and that being manufactured in France that is what would be used) so hopefully it will be OK.

The service book recommends a new copper washer when it is being refitted, but you can probably get those from most anywhere.

Sad that you haven't heard back from Reneka - very disappointing customer service on their part :o(

It has taken me a while to do it, but I contacted Parker Legris and sent them the info. It turns out that this fitting:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009PTLRPO/ref=biss_dp_t_asn    

is the correct one in stainless steel, although it can also be purchased in nickel plated brass as a "3601 04 10" for somewhat less money. I received and installed it today without a problem, easily screwing in without any thread binding or leaks. I was able to use 4mm tubing I had on hand, and I have no leaks.

The key is that the unit uses a 10 mm thread, the last portion of the designator in the part number. Hopefully this is helpful to someone.
