New Baby arrived last night, been playing with it ever since. I've frothed milk gloriously, and I've practiced my tamping pressure with scale and all. I have espresso leaking from the handle side of my portafilter. I've considered the manuals troubleshooting guide and I suppose it's possible I'm inserting the filter holder incorrectly, but it's lined up with the arrow. I hope the gasket/brewhead isn't dirty/worn 4 shots into it. and the rim of the filter holder is clean. Huge note, it only does this with the pressurized baskets. I thought about it and ran the commercial without a problem. Any suggestions?

21eaccd86f2c9725286be1b51476c2b8 I've adjusted my tamping pressure to closer to 30lbs and closer to 15lbs and still receive the same. I've also tried further the commercial basket, and it does not leak. My shot however does seem to be coming way too fast. I've tamped closer to 30 for it as well, and I'm filling the shot far too quickly (15 seconds or less for a 3 oz shot ). I'm using Lavazza Creme e Gusto pre-ground. 11-01-13 04:57PM
