SOURCE: Handle of Bialetti Moka Express 10 cup...

There is a tiny pin at the top where the handle slides into a slot between 2 aluminum walls. That pin needs to be "punched" out. I used a nail and hammer, but a tiny nail punch might be safer if you have one.

SOURCE: Espresso irregularly spurts out the center post

It IS the gasket!!!!! Store the pot with the two parts screwed TIGHTLY together for about a week. Tighten it up as the new gasket compresses. Problem solved in two weeks or less. Funnel had NOTHING to do with my problem. Also cook on medium to low heat. High flame seems to make the problem worse.

Steam blows out of valve rather than up through the top

Make sure your grinds are ground properly. If you try a different coffee and it still continues the valve may be no good. Also remove the screen on the top half and make sure the passage to the top is clear.

I need a new handle for my GB Musa 6 Cup coffee maker. I am from Quebec City, Canada. Where could I get one of these?

It's a Bialetti Musa. The GB stands for Guido Bergna, the designer.

I haven't seen handles on any parts site, just gaskets and strainers.
You might contact Bialetti Canada, or Bialetti USA and get a handle.

I want to change the rubber seal on a bialetti coffee maker

Just take your coffee maker apart and look under the top part. You'll see the seal and the metal filter. They are only held there by the friction of the seal itself (and any crud that might have built up by now). So with your finger nail or a butter knife pull out the seal, and with it will come the metal filter. It's not a bad idea to do this every time you clean your maker anyway. To replace with old or new seal, just put it back in place: first metal filter, then seal. Easy as can be.

Where can i get a replacement gasket for a principessa lavazza balzono model number 53190B/82

Try a Bialetti spare. I have had success with a Bialetti gasket for this identical model having searched for the correct Lavazza gasket for years. Mine came from from Pumphrey's Coffee in the Grainger Market in Newcastle uopn Tyne, but any Bialetti stockist (it's a very common espresso maker) should be able to get you one. It's probably the 6 cup size you need.

I need a new funnel for my vev vigano kontessa 6 cup stove top espresso

Usually most stove top espresso makers manufacture these parts to the same standard. Take your old funnel, go to a kitchen store where they sell Bialetti, and compare their funnel size to your funnel size (for the same size put). I noticed that usually, it's the rubber gaskets that may differ slightly. Or you could email customer service of

This often happens when there is too much coffee put in to start with. The coffee grounds expand when wet so take up more room. If it is too full to start with then the water has to build up too much pressure and that raises the boiling point. When the espresso is finished the coffee grounds should not be packed solid. You should be able to poke a hole in it with your finger.
