Question about Jura Capresso EspressoPRO 112 Espresso Machine

2 Answers

I replaced the O ring where the porta filter attaches to machine head of my Capresso 112 because water was sprying down the side of the porta filter when I made espresso. After replacement of the O ring, the machine leaked even more. I took the new O ring out, turned it upside down, and replaced it into the machine. That did not solve the problem, so I turned it back to it original position. (Still leaks, but less than when it was otherside up.) Was I sold the wrong size replacement O ring or is there another solution to my problem?

    What do you mean by "cleaning the tube?" The 2 holes on the porta filter are clear and I don't see how I have access to a tube in the machine's head.

    I have a Capresso Model 112 Espresso Machine. At some point the O ring surrounding the inner screen on the machine head wore out and water began to leak down the side of the porta filter. I purchased a new O ring from a store that services Capresso machines. I installed the new O ring but water still leaked down the side of porta filter. I compared the new O ring with the old O ring and they are the same size. I also called the store and they told me Capresso has only one size O ring so the one I bought was the right size. What other factor could be causing the water to leak around the porta filter and how can I fix it? I have cleaned the inner screen thoroughly and the porta filter is securely locked onto the machine.

    I compared the old O-ring and the new O-ring, they are the same size. Is it possible that it is not an O-ring problem but that the porta filter does not seal properly when attached to the machine? Maybe I have taken the porta filter on and off the machine head so many times over the years that the parts are worn out. Is that possible, though they don't look worn out?

Do you have the orginal O-ring you took out? You might have a mismatch, they have to be correct to work right. All you can do otherwise, is ensure that it's seated correctly, and it's diameter is large enough go create the seal. Make sure it fits tightly back together, and that's about all I can think of to do. Sometimes O-ring's slip when assembled, and you can use a very small amount of contact cement to help hold them in when reassembling.
Couldn't find any reports of this or info on the net, so hope this helps.

Yes it is possible certainly that you were sold the wrong o ring. but i would try cleaning the tube as there may be an obstruction in it.

    i may have misunderstood you then. the o ring you speak of is not for the water line that feeds the coffee maker i gather. if you bought an o ring from the local hardward store you need to realize that you would need one slightly smaller then the one you have. it is very likely it is the wrong one but also inspect the part the o ring goes onto for any damage as well

  • ell48 Aug 21, 2010

    I bought the O ring from a housewares store that sells parts for Capresso Espresso machines. The part I am talking about is the rubber ring surrounding the screen on the machine head. Water passes through the screen into the ground coffee held in the porta filter and drips into the carafe below. Instead of all the water passing through the porta filter into the carafe, clear water is spraying down the side of the porta filter and driping into the carafe.

    the new o ring should be slightly smaller then the old one... after awhile from heat etc. they expand.

One question: have you tried the machine without the porta-filter attached? If it works through an entire cycle without the porta-filter attached, then the porta-filter is clogged. I've lost that special little tool to poke into the hole on the porta-filter, but a fine-tipped needle works just as well. Other pins that I've tried are too thick. Sometimes there's a piece of coffee that has made it through the top part of the filter gets stuck at the single hole that is the exit. Find an appropriate pin and poke around with it, then run WATER only through the filter. If it makes it through a cycle, you've fixed it. This clogging can happen very frequently with too finely ground coffee.

If however, your machine stops and beeps without a filter attached, then there's something restricting the flow inside the machine and your only alternative is vinegar, or similar decalcifier.

Good luck!

I don't know much about this unit, but there might be a rubber seal in head where the porta filter locks in to. It is possible that this seal is either damaged or just corrupted with grounds. Try cleaning it out and or checking the seal for damage.

If what you are calling the portafilter is actually the shower filter,( portafilter is what you put the coffee in, shower filter is the one in the group head which is held in by a single screw) then when that second screw fell out it sounds like one or two other things may have fallen out also. To stop water/ steam leaking out the boiler, a small rubber seal and spring seat up in the hole where the water comes out. You need to find them or get new items and fit them to the machine. If not sure, get a parts diagram and you will see what I mean. They are easy to replace.

No steam on Capresso Impressa S8


Most likely problem is over temp cut out switch. Small diode attached to the boiler to prevent damage during boil dry, or fault in the heating element itself. Difficult machines to repair and best handled by a service technician.

Water is dripping out the side of the porta filter


You will have to replace the group gasket, you can also try using a group brush to clean any coffee grounds up there, but you will most likely have to replace the group gasket.

Breville Die Cast 800ESXL


BrevilleUSA.com has a silicon seal (steam ring) to replace faulty or worn ones. There is no shipping charge, and they are $4 each. To replace the steam ring you'll need to remove the stainless spray disk on the brew head with a phillips screwdriver (one screw) and pull off the old ring (pay attention to the direction and placement of the stainless disk).  Takes about 2 minutes to do.  
Part # .800ESXL/192 

Also, on mine I noticed that the filter holder was ground down at the factory a bit too much on one side, which causes a slight leak down one side (coffee, not water).  You might check the holder (with the filter removed) for imperfections that could lead to your leak. Good luck.
