A haven dedicated to manual espresso machine aficionados.
Is it normal for the drip tray on the Pro 800 to pop/buckle when hot water is flushed onto it? I have uploaded a short video. The sound on the video doesn't really do it justice, it's quite loud. Made me jump the first time it happened.
lol, probably not. I haven't see metal memory like that in quite some time though. You could check with the people you purchased it from to see if you could get a different one.

Mine definitely does not do that, fwiw!
You can probably stress relieve it

What, give it some Prozac?
Just a light massage will do. Play some relaxing music. Start with pouring a little red wine on it to get in the mood.
Had a kitchen sink that did that.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
That's it, Pro 800 is off my list!
Mine does it occasionally when flushing a bit of water. Never really concerned me all that much since the espresso is so good
Not so fast! I contacted the shop that I bought it from and they suggested taking the tray off and pushing it permanently into the down position. I put about half my body weight onto it and it didn't seem to budge, let alone "pop". I flushed hot water over it afterwards, and no pop! I've tried at least a dozen times since, and it hasn't popped once. It was doing it every time before.TheMadTamper wrote:That's it, Pro 800 is off my list!
