Question about Bialetti Moka Express 6-Cup Coffee Maker
We recently replaced the gasket and since then the pot starts sputtering as soon as it starts to boil and steam comes out the spout. It makes the finishing noises as soon as it starts to boil. Eventually it makes a full pot of espresso, but by the time it is done the espresso is boiling in the top chamber. Help!

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
