My machine started acting like this.  This is what I did to fix it.

"Oscar group head steaming and pulsing water"

Thank you... the machine looks it it was modified to take capsules.  I checked the size and dimensions, and  It looks like the piece that hangs down "should" unscrew to reveal the original threads for the head, but I couldn't get it to budge, and I don't want to damage it.

It's going back, which is a bummer, but by the time I replace the head, buy new portafilters, etc... I could just get a new one in the color I want with an actual warranty.

Thanks again for the suggestions.  I'm sure it will be back on eBay shortly :)

Did you open the top to see how it was put on there?  To open there are 6 screws and 2 are where the flap is where the water goes in.
