Replacement washer in the olsson block?

Posted · Replacement washer in the olsson block?

Hi there.

 

I need to replace a broken washer that keeps the temperature sensor and heater cartridge in place. (The one on the screw that goes into the olsson block)

 

Does anyone have a part name/number so I can find a replacement?

 

Thank you.

    I think it is easier to use a washer in that size from your local hardware store. I don't think it is a special part, just a washer to prevent that the screw comes out itself.

    Common hardware stores in Denmark are unfortunately not all that well stocked. Unless it's stuff used to do home improvements, we need to order it online.

     

    And the washer is needed to keep the temperature sensor and heater cartridge in place. Without it, they are not kept in place and surface contact is not ensured.

    First measure the screw diameter.  Measure the diameter of the screw including the threads.  I think it's 3mm?

     

    Then you want a "3mm lock washer"

    Hi fodskammel,

     

    You can find those washers at RS Components AS in Denmark.

    Here's three variants of Stainless Steel.

    Good luck.
