Cafe Roma leaks with pods

Our Cafe Roma works great with loose espresso but when we try to use a pod steam shoots out from around the top (where you lock it in), water gets everywhere and while a little espresso comes out it quickly gets watered down. We've replaced the collar and the steam filter connector without any improvement.

Liz,

Are you using the pod filters in the portafilger when you use the pods rather than ground espresso?

I use the insert that says "POD" on it. Didn't know it had a fancy name. I've now replaced the collar, steam filter connector and o-ring thing. It still won't work with a pod.

Now it won't work with loose espresso either.
