I scraped off as much melted rubber as possible - using my thumb nail - then used a product called Goo Gone to melt the remaining rubber. I put Goo Gone on an old cloth and rubbed off the remainder of the rubber - again with my thumb nail.

SOURCE: Bialetti will not make coffee

I would check the grind size you are using. Maybe it is ground too thin and the pressure cannot push through.

Also, remove screen and washer and make sure passage to the top is clear.

SOURCE: My espresso maker, a Bialetti, has its top very stuck to its base

i had the same issue. i ran the base under very hot water from the tap for one minute. This forces the metal to expand and loosen, making unscrewing the base much easier.

I melted the rubber seal in my 4 cup Bialetti coffee maker. I forgot to put the water in it. Now I am trying to remove the smelly melted rubber from inside the threads and and coffee holder. Please how can...


I have the same problem. Scraped most of the rubber off mine with a knife. I'm going to try steel-wool next, as the whole thing is stainless-steel (or perhaps in your case, Aluminium), it should take a good sound beating.
I wonder if there are any solvents that would dissolve the rubber?

Hello! I change the rubber sealer to my Bialetti 12 cup yesterday and since then the water stays in the bottom and does not rise to the top. The sealer is properly put in. I have not done anything...


This happened to me, too....the gasket needs to be broken in so that it seals properly, which will happen once it's been used several times. In the meantime, just tighten the pot together extra tight and that will help to seal the gasket properly. After several uses, you won't have to tighten it so much and can go back to how you've always done it. I hope this helps!!

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.
