Replacing the Group Gasket
The group gasket is a common wear and tear part of your Profitec Pro 600. If you are having trouble pulling shots or experiencing leaking at the group head, you may need to replace the gasket.
Your group gasket is what creates the seal between your portafilter and your group head. On average, group gaskets should be replaced once a year. Common signs of failure are water leaking around the portafilter while brewing, and being able to easily lock the portafilter way past the middle position while brewing. It is a good idea to replace the group gasket once a year, as the older a gasket gets, the harder it is to remove. The instructions in the attachment below will make replacing your group gasket a breeze. If you are unsure which replacement gasket to buy, please consult a member of our technical support team.
