De longhi esam 4200 filling driptray

Recommended Posts

We have had this machine for about 8 years now, and it makes some good coffee!. But I have had one problem when the ground coffee was being spilled into the machine. This was fixed by cleaning the diffuser and greasing the o rings.

Now we have a problem where water/weak coffeee is filling the driptray. I have again cleaned out the diffuser, cleaned the O ring on the compressor pad under the boiler. I dont this parts right name. But its the bit the diffuser pushes up onto to compress the puck and then have the water squirted through the filter through the puck.

So can anyone point me in the right direction please? I am OK with taking the machine apart, just want to know if anyone has seen this before and save me stripping it down to its last nut and bolt.
