    Portafilter Spout off center

    I unscrewed the portafilter spout to give it a thorough clean and when I screwed it back in place, it isn't at the central position. The machine is an ECM Technika.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    How far out is it and was it central before?
    I’ve seen thread tape used, but it’d store coffee oils I presume

    You are talking about the angle of the spout relative to the group handle? Or something else?

    The double spout sits at the 12 and 6oclock position, can't seem to get it back to the 9 and 3oclock. This leads to me having trouble getting two cups under the tray.

    Hopefully I won't need to go that route. I've read that a washer could help but would rather rectify it naturally as the machine/portafilter is only 4months old.
