Introduzione

The portafilter pressurizes the water through the coffee filter to produce the espresso. If the portafilter is dirty or malfunctioning it could result in weak coffee, or no coffee at all. This guide will help you disassemble, clean and reassemble your portafilter.

Before beginning, make a small, neat "scribe" mark on both the bottom edge of the plastic basket and, right next to it, the top of the metal basket. This match-marks these two pieces. Unscrew and remove the 3 phillips-head screws. Lift off the plastic handle assembly, exposing the internal pressure system and two springs. Take note of the handle's orientation in relation to the metal piece as it will need to be re-attached in exactly the same position to function correctly.

Take note of the spring's placement, then carefully remove and set them aside. Clean the pressure assembly with a citrus-based cleaner and a brush, making sure to get under the hinged needle valve. Rinse well, then replace the springs.

  • Reattach the handle assembly with the 3 phillips-head screws. If assembled correctly the handle should pivot slightly in relation to the metal portion, than spring back when released.

i just did this and it worked. my problem was i kept thinking it wasnt working bc the water kept flowing out of the top and not going through the two holes into the cup. I figured out it needs the coffe grounds in there to actually work! thanks!

My experience is that either the portafilter or the filter on the machine head is clogged. I remove the machine head filter and scrub with a old tooth brush and wash and scrub the portable filter and holder. If this doesn’t work take the port filter apart and clean and scrub gently with a citric acid. Your supposed to use a descaler at least every 3 months. I also put the porta filter in water and let it soak and always run with straight water before and after usage and only use 2 tablespoons of coffee or less.
