I have the same problem. Scraped most of the rubber off mine with a knife. I'm going to try steel-wool next, as the whole thing is stainless-steel (or perhaps in your case, Aluminium), it should take a good sound beating.
I wonder if there are any solvents that would dissolve the rubber?

SOURCE: I want to change the rubber seal on a bialetti coffee maker

Just take your coffee maker apart and look under the top part. You'll see the seal and the metal filter. They are only held there by the friction of the seal itself (and any crud that might have built up by now). So with your finger nail or a butter knife pull out the seal, and with it will come the metal filter. It's not a bad idea to do this every time you clean your maker anyway. To replace with old or new seal, just put it back in place: first metal filter, then seal. Easy as can be.

SOURCE: coffee ground are coming out of the k-cup area

Make sure the needle in the bottom of the K cup holder is not missing, broken or bent. Also, look at your used K cup when it comes out. Is there a hole in the top and the bottom? It sounds like the pressure is building up within the K cup due to a backup at the bottom of it. This could also occur if the bottom needle hole is obstructed. Be careful...the needles are sharp!

How can I clean the melted rubber seal from a Bialetti Top Espresso Machine?

I scraped off as much melted rubber as possible - using my thumb nail - then used a product called Goo Gone to melt the remaining rubber. I put Goo Gone on an old cloth and rubbed off the remainder of the rubber - again with my thumb nail.

Hello! I change the rubber sealer to my Bialetti 12 cup yesterday and since then the water stays in the bottom and does not rise to the top. The sealer is properly put in. I have not done anything...

This happened to me, too....the gasket needs to be broken in so that it seals properly, which will happen once it's been used several times. In the meantime, just tighten the pot together extra tight and that will help to seal the gasket properly. After several uses, you won't have to tighten it so much and can go back to how you've always done it. I hope this helps!!

How much coffee?

Fill it as full as you can with fine ground coffee. I cut the resulting brew with an equal amount of boiling water. Called an "Americano" in Italy.
