Question about Bialetti Moka Express 3-Cup Espresso Machine
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?

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.

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
