Hi,

 

I took my Vac Mini apart for a thorough cleaning today and found an o-ring when emptying the tank of my cleaner. I have no idea where it goes, but I bet someone here does.

 

Any idea based on the attached photo?

 

Thanks!

Maybe on the top of the cap insert?

From Philip Wang @ TWSBI:

 

 

Haha you know it actually looks like you have all the o-rings needed on the pen already.  That little one might just be an extra that was on the feeder holder.  There is normally two on the black feeder holder but you may have had a third extra one.  You can toss it or just keep it as a spare but you wont need to tack it back on.  It is not needed.

 

So I guess that's the answer! :-) I suspect that it came from the bottom part of the feed holder, but if it's not necessary, I'll just put it aside...

That was my suspicion too - but good to have it from the manufacturer!
