We've had a variety of problems with this machine, but the most troubling is that when the machine starts brewing the handle backs off. Sometimes the handle turns a small distance and then stays put, sometimes it would fly off if we weren't there to hold it on.  We have tried various grinds and fill levels; the rubber stoppers are fine, no damage or cracks; all parts seem to fit well.  Any thoughts?

I don't know your machine but if it was a normal espresso machine I would check 2 things. I have no idea what your portafilter looks like but if it has ears or tabs that lock in maybe they are worn.  If the group head has a gasket it probably needs replacing.

Edit
I found a photo and it does have ears, they could be worn.  Also I would guess from looking at the portafilter it has a gasket as well.
