    when you say attempt what do you mean?
    how old is it, when did you last clean and service it?
    is it under warrenty?
    what sort of beans and when / where did you buy them?

    lastly, has it ever made good coffee?

    provide more info for better help :) and welcome to CS

    I have no real idea Starkers as its a super auto.....some one else may be able to help but we as a group shy away from superautos...

    try making the grind finer or dose less (if you can?) have you changed type of beans being used? it might then need adjustment to grind / tamp if they are a lot diff

    if it keeps doing it i reckon it would then be a mechanical issue maybe a seal is split and leaking or however it "closes" to brew is not closing?


    hope you have some warranty.....

    sounds asthough your beans are groung to fine. Water is struggling coming through your coffee. A weak piont on your machine is the steam tap, you will notice when it gets warn as it will drip out of steam arm whilst making a coffee. Thanks
