What is meant by "See the links section of the device page for where to purchase a new pump"? Which device page on which website? Are you not able to just post the link? Which type/model of pump is required?

My son and I successfully replaced the pump, but it didn't go quite as easily as I'd thought. We could not get the hose that connects the boiler to the pump off. Thankfully, my clever son realized we could turn the portion of the pump that screws into the t-end to get the old pump off and new one on.....tricky, but doable. The new pump is a bit noisier than the last, but she pulls beautiful shots. Thanks so much for this guide!

I put in a new pump and it still doesn’t work. I hear it him but can’t get it to pull water. I’ve tried the water in the line thing. How is the best way to prime it? Maybe that’s it?

Open the steam valve, so there is no back pressure inside the boiler preventing the pump from pulling water.

Thanks for this tip.
I had the same problem, could not get the tefflon tube out of the brass T/OPV.

Rotated the pump off the T/OPV.
