After pulling 2 to 3 shots of espresso on my Gaggia Classic, I can't get the portafilter back into the group head. Once the machine cools down (60 minutes or so), it will go back in. We always cool the machine down after each cappuccino and the reservoir is ALWAYS full. Not sure what is wrong. We have had the machine for 2 months and descale once a month.

Sorry, no simple answer. Will not go up into the group enough to engage or will not rotate? Obviously when it won't fit the machine is hot, but have you gotten a good look at the group and gasket while hot? Photo? Anything look different cold to hot?
