Sometimes when you operate your SodaStream, the drink does not come out fizzy enough, or you can hear gas escaping on the inside. This may be an issue with the internal air hose. This is a small piece that is part of the inner machine setup. The hose is what helps the carbonation process, it connects the carbonation bottle with the nozzle on the main loader tab, and if it is damaged in any way you may not be able to use your device. In this guide, you will see how the hose can be disconnected and replaced if the need arises.

  1. Remove the soda bottle and the CO2 canister from the machine.

Thanks for the guide, but i currently have this issue where the hose needs to be replaced, but no way of sourcing a spare part? Any clues anyone?

Did you ever find the part for your machine?

Where would you get this part

Exactly the same problem on my Source, but I can't find spare parts anywhere.

Has anyone found where to get them from in Australia?

I’d also love to find a way to buy this part!

Any sources for the part? The one I have has a plastic nut that broke.

Two things: first, before you disassemble your unit, try this:

Second: It would be _extremely_ useful to have some re-assembly photos. There’s one internal part that’s not shown, and it flew out when I took the halves apart. It’s the thing that fits between the two arms that stick out at the top (and provide the upward force for sliding front of the unit). The part in question has rods that fit into holes in each half, and the smooth, curved side faces toward the front of the unit, just behind the blue thing with the brass pieces.

That YouTube link is amazing. I think that is probably the issue everyone here actually has.

Thank you.
