Replacing the Mushroom Valve & Washer for Propulse Machine
The Mushroom Valve is specifically designed to prevent water flowing out of the reservoir whilst filling. Should a replacement Mushroom Valve or Washer be required, please follow the steps below:
Remove the reservoir from the Propulse
Remove the old Mushroom Valve from the reservoir and discard
Insert a new Mushroom Valve into the reservoir
Remove the rubber Washer from the underside of the tank plug hole and discard
Insert a new rubber Washer into the lip on the underside of the tank plug hole
Return the reservoir to the machine
When the mushroom valve is fitted correctly, it should lift slightly with the tension of your finger, when pressed.
Be careful when changing the valves and washers, as any damage to either will cause the tank to leak.
Be sure to check the valves and washers prior to each use, as they do wear through normal use and may need changing, this will help prevent possible damage to the water inlet valve.
