Question about Bialetti Moka Express 6-Cup Coffee Maker
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

put some vineger in it and heat it up, like a flushing and then rinse out thoroughly. See what that does for you.

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.

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.
