Question about Bialetti Moka Express 6-Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I have changed the rubber seal and now I get no coffee!!

After a couple of years of faultless service and beautiful coffee I changed the seal and now no coffee appears! the water boils and disappears as steam. If I run the machine with water I have no problem and I get a top chamber full of water. I have cleaned the machine with white vinegar and water. I can see no reason why there is a problem - my wife has turned the metal plate over with some success but this just leads to an inadequate seal and coffee all over the stove please help this is driving me nuts Tim

Check under that plate with holes and make sure water is just under safety valve inside. make sure plate holes are open and the pipe that delivers the coffee

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Hello I've had my stove top Bialetti for many

I do not supect the basket just make sure it is not blocked with limescale or other debris as this will reduce the flow of steam through your coffee grounds.
if this is ok then check the pressure release valve on the lower chamber it may be open or defective see if steam is coming out of it when your use your machine if you do not get pressure in your lower chamber it can not lift all the water to the top.
i do not know if the pressure release valve is a replaceable part.

SOURCE: I just purchased a Bialetti

There is a valve in the compartment where you place your fresh, cold water. This valve must not be covered as it is necessary in building up steam pressure to push the brewed espresso upwards. Also, most stove espresso makers have a rubber type gasket that is usually placed on the base of the upper part of the maker. Check that you have a gasket.

Keurig leaking from bottom

Check the Upper Rubber Gasket (fits around the top puncture pin). If it missing you will have leakage because here's no seal to protect leakage. You can buy it online or call Keurig Customer Service (if you still have warranty)
OR:
Upper Rubber Gasket not making a seal with the K-Cup or Reusable Filter and the water and/or coffee grounds leak out. To fix it simply move Upper Rubber Gasket 1/4" down. This should close the gap between K-Cup and upper needle.

I have a Silvia which is about 6 years old. Over the last few weeks, when I am brewing coffee, some water leaks around the portafilter. The portafilter is well seated and properly tamped. How do I approach...

Have you ever changed the brwe head gasket? It should be changed yearly at least. They get hard from the heat and won't seal. They should be soft to make a good seal. You can change it your self. I have left post on changing gaskets. Look for Silvia solutions.

Coffee grounds in the cup

since you said usually... I suspect the rubber seal that surrounds the top needle is not seating well...
you can verify this by making a beverage with a k-cup and, just before the water starts, add a little hand pressure to the K-cup arm pushing down a little bit... not hard...
If it consistently makes a good beverage, then we focus our attention to that piece of the brewer...
when the consistency of the water changes, it tells me to look for leaks or unusual percolation of water...

you can verify the K-cup holder is ok... but another way to simulate the hand pressure is to put a shim of some sorts under the lip of the k-cup... like the thickness of a couple sheets of paper under the rim... not the actual k-cup... but the k-cup holder... raising it up a smidge is the same as the slight hand pressure...

I would look to see if the rubber seal has come loose around the top needle....

I have had my Bunn for 5 years and have loved the convenience of the 3 minute coffee, plus the coffee is always great, but for the last 6-8 months it has been leaking from the bottom. I go to work very...

Most likely the problem is in the water intake area. I have the same problem, I took my machine apart, removing the top revealed a plastic water chamber which leads to a connector that lets the water go into the heating chamber. The seal had become brittle, and the plastic water chamber also was degenerating where it met the heated water chamber. I replaced the rubber seal and that worked the first time, however, I think the plastic has now deteriorated to the point that I will need a new reservoir piece and a new seal. It's probably time to send in the unit for repair.
I think one repair for a 25-30 year old coffee maker sin't such a bad deal!
