The plastic spouts of my Gaggia Color broke and since I couldn' t buy just that part, I bought the whole portafilter. The problem is, it's not working properly: the water seems to be coming out of the filter with too much pressure into the left spout and it spills all over (the other side works fine). I have tried not to press the coffee, to unloose a little the screw of the plastic spouts, nothing improves the dripping. Unfortunately I didn' t keep the old Portafilter so I can' t check if it's just the spouts that defective, or if anything else is the problem. Any idea of what could be the problem? Thanks
Do you have the frothing jet device under the filter basket? It is a small black pin that prevents the coffee from spraying out of the coffee spouts.
DITTO!! HAD TO LEARN THE "WET" WAY!!
