Great coffee maker, pannarello makes great froth but now tripping Earth Leakage safety switch

Good coffee but Pannarello hopeless :-(


Bought this machine last November - makes great coffee but the Pannarello is so frustrating! It constantly flies off or falls off depending upon how much steam is emitted. Contacted customer care immediately advising that we had followed directions to...
