Does any one have a spare one?

I was just about to hook the machine up to my gas bottle to save on the little bulbs

Exact same thing happened my a while back, those cables are actually fairly expensive to replace alright.
Conviently enough a few weeks later Lidl had a few taps in so I just bought another one (I think the taps were reduced to 50 euro which was a bargin IMO).

Afraid I dont have any better info for you, just keep an eye on Lidl!!

You could try contacting the manufacturers; I had a problem with leaking gas/losing pressure, and sent in a query through the morphy richards website. They passed me on to another company (Toniton in Germany), who sent me out replacement parts free of charge.

I have the problem with losing pressure sometimes too. Some kegs dispense completely with one cartridge and others the gas seems to escape almost as soon as its injected requiring one cartridge per glass. Is this dependent on the keg and bung or is there something wrong with the apparatus? when it works this thing is great when it doesn't it is very frustrating.

The problem that I had was with a plastic gasket type component where the gas cartridge connects – the plastic had become cracked (maybe I over tightened a cartridge), and so the gas was slowly leaking both out of the cartridge and the keg. I think I have a drawing of the unit at home, I’ll dig it out later. Anyway, the manufacturers sent me out a small package with various small parts, including a new gasket which fixed my problem.
However, you say your problem is only with some kegs? Maybe it is just down to individual kegs/bungs. Be no harm contacting the manufacturers though and getting the spare parts, can dig out their email address if you want it.

sure send it on. the last keg leaked gas but i thought it was leaking from the top of the keg/bung area rather than the cartdridge/gasket thingy. If the next keg works I will assume its the keg/bung and not a systematic problem. I kegged a weiss beer in a mini keg recently. I'll be curious to see how that turns out...

I was contacted by a guy called Tino, his english is not great so speak slowly <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->
