  • Gaggia coffee deluxe portafilter issues

    Hi all.

    I recently cleaned my gaggia coffee deluxe group head by removing the shower screen, brew head and seal, gave it a good clean and put it all back together.

    However now when the portafilter is full of coffee (properly tamped to correct height) it wont lock in. It cant even get started As the coffee is pressed against the shower screen before the ears can get up into the head.

    Does anyone know whats wrong?

    Is it the same seal? It might not be pressed into place fully. Can you lock it in without any coffee?

      Yep- locks in fine with an empty basket. And same seal...

        if youre absolutely certain that everything that you took out went back in the same order and orientation, then it must just be sitting low.

        You could try a soft blunt object and press around the edge of the seal to see if the screen will move up further.

        Otherwise, is there any chance you trapped something under the screen?
