Hi
I have a Bodum Chambord had it for 2-3 months never had any problems with it, until few days ago, I took the plunger filter apart. It's made to do that so that I could wash the mesh what not. Anyways here's the problem is that when I attach the pieces together, the metal the last piece is very loose. It's not tightly screw attach to the last two piece…

Here's a photo below, can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

Is there a possibility that the bottom metal plate is cross theaded on the plunger rod? Perhaps unscrew the assembly and just try screwing that plate on & off, ignoring the mesh & spring plate, just to more clearly determine where the problem lies? The parts should crew together with no real force & spin freely until tight.

I guess if there was less than the usual clearance, that if the ferrule that sits above the plunger assembly was done up tight, it might prevent the bottom plate from screwing in easily...so try backing that of a couple of turns & see if that helps, tighten it up whn the bottom plate is in.

Regards, Mark.

Unscrew the ferrule that sits above the plunger mesh, see if you have anything trapped in there that is stopping the mesh from screwing tight?
