A PICTURE TELLS A THOUSAND WORDS

There is no easy way but it can be done. Note Ive already ripped the inlet hose out minus the brass connector. Its still stuck inside. The hose is broken. But this is all normal.
Loosen the Steam Boiler Mount and all the hoses etc and lift it up so you can get at the connection. Squirt some descaler into the Corroded inlet hose. Leave for a few hours. Try and pull it out by the inlet pipe, if that fails carefully hammer a Torx key (25 usually ) in and extract it. Don’t bend the inlet mount or it won’t come out.

I’m trying to take a photo and hold this so I will very shortly straighten the driver and carefully hammer it in.
out it comes.

Sometimes this fails and you have to drill it out. But I’ve never ruined a boiler and never lost at this challenge, just dont go crazy with the hammer. And dont worry about the hose, see below.

  • Just had this exact issue… again. I didn’t realise that how you did it was EXACTLY what happened to me the first time… and now again 2 years later. Stoopid coffee machines.
