    Hi peeps My trusty old Gaggia Classic has been playing up and not drawing properly, so I've taken it apart and cleaned out all the usual places, including stripping open the boiler to clean inside there. It worked briefly afterwards and has then started to trickle through. So presumably...

    Dear coffee lovers I am seeking advise when running a backflush cycle on my 2019 model duo temp pro. The machine comes with the newly updated silicon disc that has no hole. The silicon disc is inserted into the portafilter along with a cleaning tablet. The manual states that you need to run...

    Hi all, Just bought the Sage DTP last night and got it set up. Just thinking down the line and wondering what advice people have on cleaning products and filters? I don't think mine came with a descaler, although apparently they usually do so might double check the box when I get home. Do...

    I bought my machine a couple of months ago and love it. But the time has come to clean it. I've seen a couple of vids online, so the process itself looks simple enough, but do people recommend only using the Sage tablets? They seem very expensive for the amount you get, and I've seen links...

    Hi all, time me I brought some cleaning tablets. Used the ones brocides with my machine and I would say it's due for a clean soon. Done some research on the forum and the cafiza tablets seem ok. So if I buy these..... http://Urnex Cafiza Espresso Machine Cleaning Tablets, Pack of 100...

    The subject of espresso machine water tanks is rarely discussed and unfortunately sorely misunderstood by manufacturers and consumers alike. I'll list a few misunderstandings 1. Wash the water tank every 2-4 weeks 2. Building a machine where you cannot remove the water tank without significant...
  12. Sage Forum
    Hi, I've lost, or never had one since new, the cleaning disk for my barista express. I cannot find it anywhere available to buy... Not even on sage website. Is there anyway I can clean my machine without it? Can I replace it with some DIY hack? Thanks.

    Hi! I am running out of the steam wand cleaning powder and I have noticed that it is really hard to find on the market (at least in Sweden, but I also noticed that it is not listed on sageappliances.co.uk any longer). How have you solved it? Do you use some other powder or some other method to...

    Recently got the silvia steam wand upgrade from happy donkey. While fitting it i took a closer-than-usual look at my water reservoir and it was pretty dirty, as was the silicon tubing. I'm concerned that it's fungal growth. The shorter tube is easy enough to remove and clean. Is there an easy...

    Dear Sage Forum members Happy New Year! We recently purchased a Sage machine & responded to the first CLEAN ME request- placing clean disc in 1 Cup Filter basket, cleaning tablet... cleaning cycle. No water came out of portafilter. Every video show water coming out of portafilter during...
  16. Gaggia Forum
    Hey guys, asking for a friend here. Does anybody have advice for maintaining a Gaggia Classic 2015 (RI 9403/11)? Since there is no 3 way valve and a spring valve instead, backflushing is out right? Is just descaling every 3 months okay? Thanks in advance

    These were used for making the "Sitomagus Stirrer" the up and coming competitor to the Londinium Distribution tool! I have started the clean up of a second hand La Pavoni Pro' and have found the brushes were good for cleaning the insides of steam and dipper tubes. When doing my extensive...

    Time to get the basket out of the portafilter, hold it up to the light and have a peep through the holes. Are they all there, does it look as if a few didn't quite get all the way through during manufacturing, or does light come through every single one?....If it doesn't, get the old toothbrush...
