It's quite simple, Quite Simple: manual says packing grounds too tightly/ too fine a grind causes this problem; does your steam wand put out adequate steam? if so, don't pack so tight. of course, the manual is full of lies, so chalk it up to poor workmanship/quality control at factory/bad design/bad business practices a'la lower end breville machine. take yer pick.

I cant get the coff strong it seems very week


Too many variables to answer reliably.
What coffee? How Old? Pre ground or beans? How much coffee? How long does extraction take? Water temperature? Try to narrow the questions to areas.

Hmm. Better late than never. Just got home with ours. Same problem. Called Cuisinart 800 number. Catch is on top of handle. There is a slight lip on each side there.
