    mine is doing the same thing, but it is only less than a month old, surely it cannot be the seal already?

    Mine is less than a week old and the machine spits out the sides the second time we used the machine! This is quite disappointing considering the brand we were going for and realising I am not the only one with the same problem makes me doubt the quality of this product.

    are you using the pressurized basket ( the one with single hole) if yes normally they provide a little black plastic thing that u have to put it in the protafilter before putting in the basket

Spitting spraying

time for a new diffuser screen and other preventative maintenance probably. Or you could have a leaky pump that is putting air in the line.

Either the group gasket is dirty or damaged. Also check the basket for damage.

Coffee spurting everywhere!

Unlike the other person offering a solution I have experienced this problem like you when making the first cup. I found that sending a blank shot of water through first does the trick before putting the coffee grounds on. Hope this helps.
