Posted Thu Apr 5, 2012, 9:38am Subject: Blowout
My Pasquini Livia, after a cleaning and gasket replacement has decided to blow coffee past the portafilter gasket, at pressure.
I've stripped the screen and disk that holds the screen from the head and am in the process of re-cleaning and insuring that there is nothing that would cause the disk not to seat properly and the screen is clear. The gasket is well seated, clean and undamaged with the taper side down and the screw was tight. The portafilter basket is in good condition and clean.
This problem may solve itself after reassembly but anyone run into a machine that "wants" to blow by? I've had it for years and never one single problem, up until now. The replacement gasket came from Pasquini.....
