    Need some other ideas for problem

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    We have the Sunbeam 6910. BRILLIANT machine.

    Lately it has been leaking out over the basket etc. My husband replaced the seal, when we pulled out the old seal it had a split in it.

    Problem is, it still leaks. What else could be the problem??

    We do not want to have to send it awayfor repair we NeedCoffeeeee..... ;D

    Hey NC, Ive heard that in the 6900 (previous model), tearing of the group head seal was often caused by a split in the group head itself. I havent heard of this happening to the 6910 and it would probably be obvious - but worth a quick check!

    Other thing is that the seals do soften with age/use, so youll notice that the portafilter locks in further to the right with more use. I found that until it was locking in past the perpendicular, the seal did leak a little, just dripping a total of around 5ml mainly from the side opposite the p/f handle - so it may resolve itself with a bit of use. Other than that I can only guess that maybe the new seal isnt seated properly - have you tried removing and re-seating it?

    this may sound like an stupid suggestion but ive seen plenty of people put there new seals in upside down so that could be worth a check
