As in locking it in, turn the pump on and as it builds pressure slightly move the portafilter left-right a bit to let the pressure build, then release, etc. I do that for maybe 4-5 seconds and turn the pump off. With that excess water in the group area I leave the portafilter locked in place a minute then dump it. You'd be surprised as to how much crud can flush away.
Been doing that for years - really works!

Hi all
I have a very strange issue with my Lelit Elizabeth. My water reservoir is getting super hot, almost boiling since the return hose is leaking steam into the water reservoir. I opened the machine but can't find anything strange except the valve ( not sure of the name ) seems to be allowing steam to leak back into the water. Has anyone experienced this?

Call 1st Line or Chris or Clive or whomever you bought it from - they'll help you sort it.
