Bk250 o ring

I have a bubble king 250 super marine. Recently I noticed the o ring came off the seat and I am trying to put it back. It always slip out and won't stay. I tried use warm water and enlarge it more. It there a better way to install it?

What o-ring are you talking about? Warm water doesn’t enlarge an o-ring. It will soften it up though.

It's the o-ring seals the top cup and the body.

Thanks.

Place the o-ring in some boiling water for several minutes. That will help restore it. Then apply some silicone grease to the o-ring and re-install it.
