    Hi all - happy to have stumbled across this forum! Especially since lockdown has given me time to get back into my coffee obsession. I have a Barista Express machine that sadly seems to have recently developed a slow leak :( It's ~6 years old, was used maybe 5 times a week for the first 2...

    Hi, Please could someone advise me on an occasional leak from the safety valve in my expobar dual boiler? It's about 5 years old and I bought it second hand about a year ago. It's worked well but recently it has occasionally leaked a big pool of water while warming up. I finally managed to...

    Hi Everyone, Hoping the Sage users can help me. Today my Sage Creatista Plus started leaking coffee (possibly watered down) into the capsule tray whilst a fraction of the usual amount found the cup. looking through the capsule feed on top, I can't remember if In the past whether or not I...

    Some weeks ago, the steam valve became a little loose after nearly four years of daily use. The steam ball joints do get cleaned and lubricated with Molykote 111. I managed to tighten the smaller of the two nuts which secured the valve body flush with the front SS chassis but I have tried a...
  6. Gaggia Forum
    Hi all Newbie here, but this forum is a great help! I recently purchased a used Gaggia Classic from 2004. Unfortunately it wasn't in the best condition, so I completely descaled it, took the shower plate and screen off etc. All was working fine for a few weeks, then it started leaking from...

    Can anyone offer some advice please? I picked up this lovely machine (Classico/Ariete) from the forum last year, and have had nothing but fun, trying to 'learn' the basics and craft! Over the last couple of days, I noticed a feint hissing coming from inside. I thought it may be the pressure...

    Hi All, forgive me if this is posted in the wrong area! As soon as the machine is powered on, there is continuous leaking coming from the safety release valve. If I turn on the machine and pull the pour lever, small amounts of water start coming through the group head but still leaks on top of...

    Hey, hope you guys can help. My trusty Silvia, 9 years old, has begun to leak. In the linked video you can see the place; I'm not sure what the part is called, but seems to be from a seam in a brass part stemming from the boiler...? The question is if this can be fixed - and if, then how...

    Hello. I have what I think is an old Gaggia coffee. When I turn the machine on and as it warms up, water drops come out of the steam wand, even if the steam wand knob is fully closed. It also drips from the grouphead if the portafilter isn't on. Is this normal? I've bought it off ebay from...
  12. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, I recently picked up a used 2011 Gaggia Classic. I had one many years ago, and at the time replaced the steam valve to fix a leaky steam wand - simple fit, and it worked great. So when I noticed the steam wand leaking on my new machine, I knew what to do...except this time, instead of the...

    I've had my trusty Classic for about 10 years now. It gets a regular back flush (about once a month) and a descale every now and again. I live in a soft water area so there never an issue with limescale build up anyway. I've changed the portafilter seal many times over the years and moved away...

    Well this is a bit odd.... Just started happening this has. When I rebuilt the Personal 1, I replaced the original and very knackered NS group seal (OEM on this machine was 7mm, at least that's what came off it anyway) with a new, admittedly thicker at 8.3mm blue silicone one about 6 months...

    Hi all So I've been having a real problem trying to fix up my heavenly with a new pressure gauge, and the pipe that goes from that to the boiler, without the pesky thing leaking. The leak comes from the point in that second pic where the pipe screws on to the gauge. I've wrapped some ptfe...
  16. Gaggia Forum
    Hi all, I've had a used Gaggia classic (2005 model) since christmas and having gone through a full stripdown, service, descale and rebuild I'm now trying to work out if my solenoid is functioning fully. I took the solenoid apart as part of the service and after recomissioning the machine and...

    Will the warranty be void on a Expobar Brewtus IV if I take the case off to see if I have a leak? I am a bit worried that as I took the casing off to take some photos I inadvertently voided the warranty. I received the machine 2 weeks ago and used it a few times (weekends), and twice now I have...

    Hi all, newbie here I've just got myself a second-hand heavenly (for a pretty good price I think), which had not been used for a few months. Seller advertised it as such and recommended that it probably needed a service. Water seems to run fine through the machine to the tap, wand, and...
  19. Quick Mill Forum
    Hi all, It would seem that my faultless verona is no longer faultless following a full descaling session where there is now a very small leak (10-20ml over the space of 8 hours) has developed. That aside, a more serious fault has developed where the boiler suddenly lost pressure and this was...

    Only a minor leak but still a leak! The tube from the little chrome/shiny fitting is leaking when the machine is turned on. It has started to rust the base panel under the pump so I need to stop it. Can the fitting be tightened or does it need replacing? Looks like something I can do...
