No coffee rises to the top chamber - brand new bialetti!

No coffee rises to the top chamber of my brand new Bialetti stove-top coffee maker. I followed all instructions to the letter, did trial runs with water, nothing has worked. Should I just keep trying?

How can I clean the melted rubber seal from a Bialetti Top Espresso Machine?


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.

I just purchased a Bialetti stainless steel 6-cup stove top espresso maker. I cleaned it, assembled it according to the instructions, and went to brew my first coffee. I didn't grind the coffee too fine,...


There is a valve in the compartment where you place your fresh, cold water. This valve must not be covered as it is necessary in building up steam pressure to push the brewed espresso upwards. Also, most stove espresso makers have a rubber type gasket that is usually placed on the base of the upper part of the maker. Check that you have a gasket.

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!!

Hello I've had my stove top Bialetti for many years, and its worked beautifully. However, recently I've had a lot of problems with it. It is taking much longer for the coffee to brew, and in fact it does...


I do not supect the basket just make sure it is not blocked with limescale or other debris as this will reduce the flow of steam through your coffee grounds.
if this is ok then check the pressure release valve on the lower chamber it may be open or defective see if steam is coming out of it when your use your machine if you do not get pressure in your lower chamber it can not lift all the water to the top.
i do not know if the pressure release valve is a replaceable part.

Barely any coffee rises to upper chamber after cooking


It's the gasket!!!!! Store the pot with the two parts screwed TIGHTLY together for about a week. Tighten it up as the new gasket compresses. Problem solved in two weeks or less. Also cook on medium to low heat. High flame seems to make the problem worse.

Bialetti sputtering after gasket replaced


Flame is too high and the top is not screwed tightly enough to the bottom. Also make sure there is enough fine ground coffee in the funnel.
