Unsure how to open the valve

Unread postby majk » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:35 am

Hi guys, I'm new to this & just opened box with my 20L Braumeister... Well, there is no manual how to assembly it but I think I did OK - except the front valve that came like this out of the box - and the handle is impossible to move to the front - like a super stuck.. Is there any tip or trick I'm missing how to open it?

.. just can't rotate it to the front/ open it... :/

Have you got a vice with soft grips?
That should let you get enough purchase on the handle to turn it.

You should have received a manual and some other Speidel information in the box it came in. :drink:

Figured it out - after the first test use/ boil, it significantly loosen up and now it works just fine - IMHO there is something with the temperature that probably affect the plastic or metal or who knows, but If you just unboxed your Braumeister and have the same issue - do not worry and just plug your machine in/ do the test boil just with water and should be OK.
