Hello,
I've searched the posts to try to find if this has been addressed and am not seeing it.  I've had the Santos 3000 electric for quite a while - over 5 years.  Within the past 6 months, it has not been draining well at all.  Will typically drain 3/4 of the coffee into the lower compartment then stop.  If I place the upper compartment in a carafe it will eventually drain out.  I purchased a replacement filter, with limited to no improvement.  We have not changed our grind at all so I don't think it is an issue of fines clogging.  Could there be a loss of vacuum somewhere?  Any help would be deeply appreciated as the Santos is beloved to us.
Regards,
John

I have no experience with the electric vac pots, the stove top ones have a rubber seal or gasket on the top globe. Maybe after 5 years of use this has worn out. Just a thought.

Thanks much for the response.  That thought did occur to me and I tried putting a little vegetable oil on the gasket to see if I could get a better seal but that didn't work.  I am trying to figure out how to recondition the gasket if possible.  If not I guess it is RIP Santos.  Thanks.

I don't know the electric ones, but if it's the same gasket as the stovetop Santos, you can buy a replacement from Bodum for pretty cheap.
