Corrosion on my Bialetti Moka stove-top

The last time I cleaned my Bialetta I must not have dryed it well enough, the result, white fur and the funnel is corroded right through. I am not blaming the manufacturer it is my fault.
However after cleaning the base it is pitted inside and still stinks despite my best efforts. Am I therefore better buying a new pot altogether and ditching the old one or do I try further to get rid of the stink, I realise the pitting is there for ever, and also buy a new funnel?

SOURCE: Handle of Bialetti Moka Express 10 cup...

There is a tiny pin at the top where the handle slides into a slot between 2 aluminum walls. That pin needs to be "punched" out. I used a nail and hammer, but a tiny nail punch might be safer if you have one.

I just bought the Bialetti Moka Sound 6 cups for 1 day. And it is not sound. What should I do? I have read one said that I have to change the battery at knob but I have no idea to open it at all. Anyway,...


First I'm not a Bialetti tech. But I have worked on may brands of professional espresso machines.
* When you mentioned this stove top model 'sounds off' I just had to check it out. The you tube videos are going nuts over this 'cute' brewer. Especially the Italian tubers.
* I found a link for you to change the battery. It's more obvious on the white cap model. So I'm guessing you have the black knob style (or they changed it to make it more visible.) Cute music but notice all the vids have the steaming louder than the music.

My Moka Easy Bialetti electric espresso maker switches off before all the water has been percolated through into the upper pot. I have recently replaced the rubber seal etc. at the base of the pot.


I emailed support at Bialetti and here is what I got:

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

6 cup moka express only making 1 cup of coffee


Sat on the stove and did nothing! Fire the credent!!!Is the water getting hot enough? Here is an idea, take it back to the store and get a dufferent model, or a straight across echange.I have a notion to buy one just to take it apart and see whats going on, There are so many on this forum I don't knpw whythey are bothered wirh. No offense to your preference and good taste but if twas and seriously fond of expresso, buy one at a t a restaraunt supply store. I'm sorry that was not an answer abd I know those machines are way over priced. It is frustrating me and I don't care for expresso myself. Take it bake and raise cain over it.. Expired warrantee or not. Send me a copy of the receipt and I'll write or call the manufacturer myself. Let me have their phone number, also. Ned Cook

Espresso irregularly spurts out the center post


It IS 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. Funnel had NOTHING to do with my problem. Also cook on medium to low heat. High flame seems to make the problem worse.

I need a new funnel for my vev vigano kontessa 6 cup stove top espresso


Usually most stove top espresso makers manufacture these parts to the same standard. Take your old funnel, go to a kitchen store where they sell Bialetti, and compare their funnel size to your funnel size (for the same size put). I noticed that usually, it's the rubber gaskets that may differ slightly. Or you could email customer service of www.vev-vigano.com.

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.
