The gasket only rebuild kit on this product page comes with the consumables used on the Faema E61 brewing group. So this complete set can not be used on other E61 style of brewing groups, a lot of the items are compatible but not all of them. In most cases you don’t have to replace the brass items in your brewing group, seen they will wear out less quickly then the gaskets.

This kit contains out of 18 various items. The list below shows you these items:

1x Shower screen old model;

3x 13x4x4mm valve gasket

2x 15.5x7.5x4mm shaft gasket

1x Gasket 22x16x2mm

3x Gasket 36x30x2mm

1x o ring 3.53x18.64mm.

1x gasket 26x21x2mm

1x portafilter gasket 74x57x8mm

1x portafilter gasket 73x57x8,5mm

1x portafilter gasket 73x57x9mm

1x paper shim 0,8mm

1x paper shim 0,5mm

1x water filter 11mm

This set of gaskets can be used on the vintage Faema E61 espresso machine, the Faema E61 Legend brewing groups and on the Solenoid operated Faema E61 Jubilee. You only do not use all the gaskets.


Well that answer is pretty simple, no it isn’t. The original valve works as following, when you turn the shaft inwards the valve pin will push a gasket holder. The steam can go out, close it again and no steam can go out. In the case of the modern E61 valves is that behind the gasket holder is a small stainless steel ball with a spring.

From the beginning of the Faema E61 brewing group are basically no differences between the parts installed inside the brewing group. Parts such as the valve gaskets, springs, valve assemblies and portafilters have all remained the same. The biggest change is the small cleaning hole on the front of the brewing group. With the earliest models this hole didn´t exist.

There are 5 types of boiler used on the Faema E61 espresso machine. The most well known is the double flanged model. You have on one side the heating element flange and on the other side the water level flange, both are out of production. These are held in place with aluminium boiler rings. For the single groups you have a boiler with a flange on one side.

The next model is a stainless steel boiler, with one flange. This type of boiler is less common then the copper boiler above. There is also a later model stainless steel, which doesn’t have a removable flange. Both these boilers have corrosion issues, this has to do because of the stainless steel.

The latest model is also a copper boiler, this boiler has a single heat exchanger(HX) in the middle. Most modern espresso machines have for each individual brewing group a individual HX.

Yes it is, but this depends on various factors. The first thing is experience, seen this is a manual operated espresso machine it requires a lot more attention from the barista then a solenoid operated model. There you need to stop the brewing process manually. If you don’t have the experience you probably can’t hold up with the tempo which is required at such a bar. Then I would advice to go for the Faema E61 Jubilee, this is the solenoid operated version of the Faema E61 Legend espresso machine.
