    Hi, I've installed a XMT7100 PID to my pre 2015 Gaggia Classic. Currently I'm getting both the neutral and live from the power connector from the back of the machine due to the fact I'm struggling to find a reliable live connection on the switches at the front of the machine. The PID works...

    Machine was on for 10 mins to warm up, no problem. Turned on pump to run water through the brew head and the water came out very hot and steaming. Then noticed the smell of electrical smoke, and saw white fumes coming out of the Classic. Unplugged the thing. Took lid off and tried it again to...

    Hi all. I'd appreciate some help. I decided to do a strip down service on th Gaggia after steam/water flow issues. All bolts came out ok. There is a bit of scale, (probably due to using filtered water before the Osmio). I have the items sitting in Tantaric Acid solution, My question is...

    2006 GC that I started to use Puly cleaner in the blind basket , it then tripped the mains fuse and it looks like the black pressure release hose with the circlip became unattached from the solenoid and sprayed a bit of water over the insides /electrics creating the fuse trip and electric...

    Having had my GC apart for the first time I'm now both better informed about how it works, but also slightly confused! It's generally of no importance whatsoever other than for my general understanding, but I'm particularly curious as to how the OPV and the "overflow" work with each other. As...

    Hi everyone. I'm stripping my Gaggia down to service to eventually sell. I thought I better document everything in a thread here, rather than stick a load of photos in the 'for sale' posting. Also thought the community might find it interesting. It's a 2008 model, I bought from...

    In June of '18 I did a restore of a late 90's classic (link to thread) and decided to add an Arduino based PID controller to it. My little PID controller worked pretty well, but it was a little fragile and moving the machine to clean it / around it usually meant crossing my fingers that the...
