I have had, am on my 4th, Hot Top.
I have had one machine that did that but only once or twice. It stopped.
I decided that it was the water content in the beans and ignored it...
if this is a new machine I would call Micheal and tell him and have him
suggest possible reasons.
You could have a flaw in your machine and I would rule that out asap.
