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.

Coffe does not come out, it starts sounding that it will then it stops


If you remove the porta filter, will water come out when you turn on the pump? If so, your porta filter is clogged and soaking it in white venigar will unclog it. To keep it from clogging, after each use, put it back on the machine and run hot water thru it until the water runs clear. (Remove grounds first)
Does water come out the steam wand?
When was the last time you ran a cleaner thru it? The Saeco de scaler cleaner is designed specifically for your machine. Purchase from Amazon for about $10.00 and use every six months.
if it still won't work,melt me know.

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!

Water pours out from all around when making coffee. I fill the filter with coffee and turn the machine to brew and water seems to overfill and comes out over the top.

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.
