FAQ – What will happen if I buy the wrong size?
The thickness of the gasket will determine the “lock-in” position of the portafilter handle. Ideally you want the handle to lock in directly towards you (6 o’clock position). If the gasket is too thin it will lock in too far. If the gasket is too thick it will not lock in enough.
Gaskets must be properly fit, else the portafilter might not lock properly which can result in it coming off during pressurisation. Release of portafilter during pressurisation can cause an explosion of hot water from the grouphead causing hurt and damage.
We will not be responsible for any damages incurred during the replacement. Gaskets sold are not refundable.
