I replaced the group gasket because of a leak every time I pull a shot. When I did a test run, the pressure moved the portafilter and the new gasket leaks more than the old one. I opened the machine and tried again just in case I made a mistake and the same thing happened again. Any ideas or trouble shooting please.
I bought this machine refurbished and used it quite frequently with great results. I purchased the Gaggia Espresso Color in February 2012 and in November I brewed two shots, turned around to brew two more and the machine was dead. I made several attempts to turn the machine on and the power light would flash on then off again. Finally, after four or five tries with different wall outlets, there was no light at all. I ordered a fuse as recommended by the support representative and I installed it with no success. I felt this was a quality machine and would recommend it, however refurbished or not, I feel that I should have gotten at least a year of use out of it!
