Is your espresso machine leaking from around your portafilter? It might be to time to change your filter holder gasket a.k.a group head gasket. This part creates a tight seal for your portafilter. Over time, the material of the gasket becomes hard and cracks from the heat within the group head. As a result, a leaking of extracted coffee will be observed from around the portafilter/handle while a shot is dispensing.
Replacement of the group head seal is a maintenance task required on all espresso machines. The frequency that is required in changing this part depends upon the usage of the machine, so you can expect to change it every 3-6 months. It is recommended to have a spare one on hand.
Maintenance and prevention is important. As a reminder make sure to always clean your machine as well. We carry Urnex Cafiza Liquid Dezcal (Product Code 1092540) and Urnex Cafiza Detergent Coffee Brewer Cleaning Packet (Product Code 1092500).
We want you to know about proper maintenance, so it gives your espresso machine a long and happy life.
Keep the great shots coming!
