I posted this message on alt.coffee as well, but thought the responses might be quicker here. Thanks!
I recently visited a church that has a coffee shop located in it. I was asked to make coffee there for a function coming up so I inspected the machine ahead of time. It is a GrindMaster espresso machine with some problems. The biggest one, that I've noticed so far, is that though a little water comes through the dispersions screen, most of the water seems to come from the grouphead gasket area. I want to try and fix this problem before I use their equipment. Any ideas on what the problem is? Could it be the gaskets? Any help would be appreciated. At the very worst, I'll bring my Oscar to do the job. Thanks in advance.

In the location you describe (probably many different users) it's hard to say if it gets regular cleaning. The dispersion screen could be pretty dirty. You'll need to take it off to check and clean and probably replace the gasket in the process.
