Hi,
I own a Gaggia Tebe for about 10 years (about the same inside built as the classic).
Lately I had troubles with the filter holder.
The filter holder is getting unscrewed (opens) during the brewing process, and I need to hold it firmly so it will not unscrew completely during the brewing process.
When I left it working without firmly holding it, it was just unscrewed completely and ground hot coffee was bursting everywhere 
It is related to the pressure of the brewing (a higher level of coffee in the filter holder will yield more force of unscrewing)
I changed the group gasket today and cleaned everything but the problem remains the same
I would appreciate any help regarding the probable cause and how to fix it
Thanks

My PF does the same thing when the gasket gets old and hard. Are you using a soft gasket?

I have a new gasket.
The issue was solved - my PF was a bit polished. I put some epoxy stuff there and now everything is OK
