Some leaking from the group head of the machine is totally normal while the machine is heating. The reason for this is that the valve that sits above the shower screen is simply a spring and rubber ball. The spring expands, creating a seal with the rubber ball and the boiler, once the boiler reaches a specific temperature. Until the boiler temp is reached, leaking from the group head will occur.

I would go ahead and run a solution of 50% distilled white vinegar and 50% water through the machine. If the machine still runs slow after that, pour another 50/50 vinegar/water solution into there - let it run just enough so that the vinegar water starts to drip out, then cut the machine off. Let the vinegar/water sit in the machine for about 20 minutes. Then cut the machine on and let the rest of the solution run through. Then run plain water through the machine to clear out the vinegar. Try brewing a batch and see if the machine behaves normally.
If the above fails to resolve the issue, the FrancisFrancis machines are now owned by illy, so would need to contact them for further TS.

There are two different handles made for this unit (I own an X1 and have both). Both of these handles have baskets.
First - The pod handle has a basket area that is very shallow, about 1/3 of an inch deep and the basket has very small holes.
Second - The handle for loose grounds came with two baskets, one for a single dose, and one for a double dose. Both removable baskets have the very small holes for the espresso to drip through.
You must have a basket in the handle in order to use the machine. If you try to make espresso without a basket, you'll just make a mess. Besides, the machine will never be able build enough pressure to extract espresso from the grounds.
Search the net (ebay?) for francis francis x1 handle.
