Undo the screw in the middle of the grille where coffee is brewed, under that there are 2x allen head screws. Take them out and lever that circular aluminium disk vigorously until it comes free. It will be very very tight, once you have it out you will be able to lever out the huge group gasket. Clean everything and reassemble, holes in that aluminium disk will be quite blocked and may need to be drilled to clean them. Don't do the grille screw up too tight, it only makes it harder next time.

I have a Starbucks Sirena - the grounds overflow in the basket while pulling shots, and it drips forever after it's done. When I remove the basket it's a huge mess every time. All the parts seem to be...


it sounds like you need a new group head gasket, or the group head gasket is not installed properly.
If it is a new machine, you probably just need to reseat the group head gasket. If it is a used machine, the gasket is probably worn, they need replacement every 6-12 months.
The Starbucks Sirena is made by Saeco, and is also called the Saeco Sirena.
You can find the group head gasket (brew head gasket), and any other parts from the following:
seattlecoffeegear.com

Here are a few videos of the machine in use:

Water is leaking around the edges of the basket and into the shots. Is this an o-ring gasket or a group gasket issue?


Group gasket issue, depending on the age of the machine the gasket might be dirty, use a Q-tip or your group brush to clean, if machine has over 2 years use then replace group gasket.

All you need is another gasket then use an ice pick or a scratch awl and remove the old gasket, it might come out in pieces.

ECM Giotto group gasket and shower plate falling out


I am assuming that you have basket style shower which sits in the gasket and then inserts in the group.
Find the small bevel edge on the gasket, make sure that side is facing up, place gasket on table then insert shower in gasket, then lift gasket, until it sits at the top of the shower(use a small flat screwdriver or a small hard brush to clean the group where the gaskets seats), then insert gasket and shower in group. Push in as far as you can then use the portafilter to seat the gasket in all the way.

If your shower is the flat style then there should be a hole in the middle for a screw.
