    Recently I've got into the habit of pressing the Pour button on my Gaggia Baby (older version) just after frothing. This sends a burst of steam through the group head. Seems to me this helps clean the shower screen. Is this recommended or what?
  2. Gaggia Forum
    I picked up a used '91 Gaggia Baby that's missing the small rubber drain pipe and the steam knob from the top. I can probably replace the steam knob with something else, but that little rubber elbow (Gaggia Part # B0164 ) is proving to be pretty impossible to find. It looks like this I...

    Hello all, Just thought i'd run this by you. I've recently bought a bottomless portafilter for my Gaggia Baby, when I purge through the filter it's fine but when I add coffee into the filter and start to extract it goes absolutely everywhere! When pressure is measured (using a portafilter...

I have now decided that if I could fix the machine it'd be a good gift for my brother. So since i bought it the machine. The power light has been able to turn on but...

    Can anyone suggest an upgrade to the portafilter handle that I snapped off my Gaggia Baby? I probably overfill the basket so it takes a bit of force to get it engaged properly which it's obviously not designed for. If there's a handle only I can buy, it's an "H" fitting. But if I need to get...

    I think I have an issue with pressure and the boiler. It is no longer producing steam and when making shots water comes out of the wand. Opened it up a a month ago to make sure everything was clean and there were no leaks and everything seemed to be fine. Any common issues that may have caused...

    Hello, I'm hoping some kind soul can give me some advice on how to fix my coffee machine, as I certainly can't afford a replacement for some time. i have a Gaggia baby classic (RI8155/12). A couple of days ago I was cleaning the group head as it wasn't making a good seal with the portafilter -...

  15. Gaggia Forum
    Title says it all really. Bought myself a bargain Gaggia Baby 06 class from this very forum a couple of months ago, and it's been both brilliant and trouble-free. I've been regularly back-flushing and descaling it, and have been using filtered water. Just today, however, it started dripping from...

    Hello all, Up for sale is my Gaggia Baby - the machine is in very good condition with new boiler & group head seals fitted. The machine is freshly descaled and backflushed. The machine benefits from almost the same internals as the Gaggia Classic - the machine has a slightly adjustable OPV but...

    I've got a customer that has a Gaggia Baby from quite a few years ago (10+) and he's quite keen to do an OPV mod on it as all his shots are running too fast. Anybody any experience with this?

    I am a South African born naturalised Brit. I am resident in Croydon (sorry) and I have been lurking on the forum for a while before joining. My present range of kit is a SJ, Gaggia Baby, and a pre-millennial La Pavoni professional (under restoration). My Gaggia was purchased and has had one...
  20. Gaggia Forum
    Can anyone please tell me what size of OPV is fitted to the Gaggia New Baby? I have trawled the forums but can't find this info. anywhere. I am led to understand that, unlike the Classic, the New Baby's OPV is a non-adjustable plastic component, and I wish to replace it with a 'Classic-style'...
