Question about Bialetti 8853 Espresso Machine
I have a Bialetti 8853 Espresso Machine and when the seal wear out I replace it w/ a new one. However, each time over the years it takes me forever to convince the little coffee machine to make espresso. It is like the seal is not working and it has to swell or something in order to work. Any thoughts?
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.

Check the coffee funnel for any dents around the edge of the funnel. Normally if this brewing problem happens after changing a gasket the problem is a dent or the funnel is out of round and the new gasket isn't formed to it like the old gasket was. Don't bang the funnel to get grounds out or it may dent or get out of round. Try pulling the funnel over to one side in the water chamber and if you see a space on one side pull it tight with the other finger to bend back into shape if possible or replace the part.
Take the gasket and filter plate out from under the upper unit and hold the filter plate up to the light to check for any clogs right in the center where the coffee brews up. You should be able to see through all the holes in the filter, brush clean if needed
