ECM Giotto group gasket and shower plate falling out

I have an ECM Giotto and just yesterday the group gasket and shower plate fell out of the group head. I cleaned it and pressed it back in, but it fell out again. How do I install this so it stays in the group head?

Thanks!

Steve

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.

ECM Giotto releases steam instead of water from the coffee group


Check the shower screen and diffuser in the head, they might be blocked, if not, check the metering jet at the top of the head(large nut) CAREFUL, make sure machine is off and cool before removing, use a paperclip or pipe cleaner to clear blockage. If not blocked then you will have to check the brew solenoid.

Just replaced the head gasket of my giotto


HI
Make sure that the water level probes are touching the machine to ground themselves. Push down on the probes, and see if the machine comes on. With out looking at it I don't know what else to tell you.

Installed new ulka vibrating pump in my Rocket E61 (Giotto) but the pump won't prime.


Hi there,
If when you installed the new pump and turned it on and made loud vibrating sound but not pumping any water through what you need to do is when you turn the pump on open up your steam valve turning the steam knob. Usually it is just an air lock and this should allow the air out and water to flow through. When water comes out of the steam arm, close it off and water should then come out the group head as normal. If you try this and nothing happens you either have a build up of scale which you just need to try to flush a good descaler (Puly Baby Powder) through your machine or the pump you got is faulty.

All the best

Wet grounds


What you see is condensed stem comming out and no water. The pump is not sucking from the tank as ther is an air bubble in suction line. Still want coffe and don't want to clean your machine??? Flick up the lever with no group in place. Steam comes first then nothing. Pump is running and - voila - water comes as air bubble is gone. (Specially the first cup , never the following ones.) Now put back the group and brew your espresso. The machine is full of scale and neds total clean - by hand./// Olev
