Subject: puck cannot be knocked out
Hello,
Since a week I am owner of a brand new BrewtusII. I pull amazing
shots
and the machine seems to work ok. However, I have one problem: the
puck cannot be knocked out of the portafilter even if I use quite
some
power to get it into my knock box. I can only remove the puck by using
a
spoon and break it. I tried a backflush with water, but this did not
help.
Who has an idea what is going on here? I am not sure there are any
differences, but I bought the machine in Europe.

Nelius

$1800/US machine. Think I'd be overwhelmed with all those workings
were I a week-old owner, too. Take awhile getting into the goove on
that. Hot machine, and that's baby's 61 lbs., doesn't take much more
than a minute to dry out a puck. God knows what all else it's doing
in between and after extracting.

Indeed.

Leaving pucks in the basket is so 2003. ;-)

Do you leave the portafilter in the machine to dry out?
If so, don't. Knock out the puck after you finished pouring your shot.

Nothing unusual about this - it sometimes take a *VERY* solid whack to empty
the filter. So don't be timid!
