The SodaStream Source carbonates water and adds flavor through its nozzle. This nozzle has a rubber seal to help prevent leakage and stabilize the carbonating block while making soda. If the seal is damaged, replacing it will stop leaking during your soda's creation. To replace this seal external and internal disassembly is required. This guide shows you how to access and remove a damaged seal.

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

Where can I purchase the internal rubber seal? Thanks Ronzo (Australia)

I’ll ask the same question as the gentleman above. Where can I purchase the rubber gasket seal? I cannot find it anywhere online. I would also like to purchase the gas delivery tube and is installed.

Thank you

Our sodastream does not work anymore. It’s the electrick model with three different gasfillings. When you put the waterbottle into the filling station and then you turn your suitably filled bottle down and you try to push some of those lights (- /--/ ---) for to fill your bottle, it sounds like little choked “puff” and then all lights are blinking (I think they tell mailfunction). No gas comes. I have changed new and stuffed gasbottle, power cable is its place and works. So what’s wrong? Thank You allready, Juha Heikkilä (Finland).

I am also looking for a gasket. Do you have any advice?

Zuzana Karlíková - Reply

You have to make your own gasket using a 3d printer. sodastream will not sell you any internal parts. They consider all soda makers disposable!!!
