  1. That’s great. Thank you for your assistance, much appreciated I’ll get stuff ordered and let you know how it goes.
  2. Perhaps this also? https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/izzo-duetto-alex-vivi-group-head-re-build-kit.html
  3. Thanks Dave… I tried again back flushing. Nothing leaking from the handle but what I get is all the pressure building up in the portafilter and very little coming out the bottom of the e61. When i release the portafilter I get an explosion of hot water and puffy carp. So all pressure in the portafilter. This is why I’m getting extremely soggy pucks. Is this the kit I require Dave? I’ll also get some of the food safe grease. Thanks https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/generic-e61-group-head-service-kit.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIi4vHoLLI8wIV1vhRCh2X_QAjEAQYAiABEgLAx_D_BwE
  4. Hi Dave, Thanks, no I haven’t used any grease 😬 Just stripped down and citric acid.
  5. Hi yes, that’s the 1st thing I did. It all looked good. im now just trying to get the right turns on the OPV spring tension, just put it back together and the thin outlet pipe that goes in the tray is now too low. Have to give it some more turns. ive used citric acid to clean the internals of the OPV and the seals look good.
  6. Hello all, New member here congrats on this great forum. I purchased an Alex Duetto II years ago from Bella. Probably have one of the early models. I fixed loads of little things myself but now have an issue I’m not sure about. When I try and back flush I get extremely poor water pushed into the tray from the bottom of the E61. Water and puffy stays in the portafilter. It used to shoot out under pressure into the tray. Same when brewing, extremely watery pucks. I was thinking it could be the OPV (unsure) I ordered a replacement a while back from Bella but doesn’t look like the part I have fitted. Any help, greatly appreciated. Oh, how do I attach photos, can’t see the attach image on this thread?? Kind Regards, Anthony
