    New Group Seal Installed in Em6910, Locking in at 7o'clock

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I installed a new group seal today on my em6910, it is locking a few centimetres after inserting the portafilter, it locks at 7o'clock even with some decent force.

    I noticed when I backflush the portafilter slides to the left, is this expected i.e. take some time for the seal to settle in ? any tips ?

    Interesting, with a new group seal I still have a small gasket under the seal, and it locks in at 6.00pm.

    mine is an old machine, round button on the drip tray.
    I have seen a new unit with the handle locked in at about 4.00pm

    This is without loading it with coffee ?

    Did you clean out the grove it sits in prior to installation. ?

    Had a mate with the pf trying to undo as well ,,,, he was overdosing a bit too much

    The seal was these from ebay, perhaps its a non original sunbeam one maybe the culprit, i just ordered Sunbeam original one now, i will wait for one to arrive and see how it goes, if thats the case, lesson learnt not to buy cheaper non original parts.

    Sunbeam Seal arrived and fitted, it is locking at 6 o'clock, such a difference to use original parts.
