  1. Hi, I inherited an unused FF x1 machine from my girlfriend and finally got the right portafilter only to find it leaks from the joint behind the steam valve where the two brass pieces fit together. Can this be taken apart and resealed? It looks like it should come apart, but I'm unsure how to proceed. Here is a video of the leak. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1ZtAtotIoY Thanks! Eric
  2. The steam valve on my Classic has been steadily getting worse. After descaling at the weekend, it got even worse with a steady flow of water each time the valve is opened. I looked it up and found a video where the owner says the leak is caused by a buildup of scale in the steam valve and because it can't be descaled properly, the leak just gets worse. In the video, he shows how to grind back the collar where the brass open/close pin goes into the aluminium pipe, allowing the pin to be removed for descaling. The end of the video shows the reassembled valve working perfectly with no leaks.
