Leica EG 1140


We have a Leica EG 1140 H and C for our embedding center.  After not very 
many months of use, the paraffin dispenser developed a chronic leak which has 
not been prevented by removing and cleaning the appropriate parts.  I have 
heard some rumors that other users have had a similar problem.  Has anyone 
else encountered this problem?  Have you been able to get the vendor to 
retrofit/replace the dispenser arm?  I understand the EG 1160 was built in a 
fashion which improves this problem, but this is just second hand information 
from an independent service company.  Unfortunately, we are beyond the one 
year warranty by about seven months.
Thanks for your input.
