    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...

    In the last couple of days my L1 has started leaking from between the two parts of the group. It's not due to loose bolts. I did relube it a couple of months back, but the seals are at least a year old. Any suggestions as to the likely cause? I'm guessing I might need to put a new set of piston...

    I was informed the morning after playing with the new machine that there was a puddle in the kitchen. My heart sank as I knew the only new thing in there was the Heavenly. To cut a short story shorter I took the covers off but couldn't see where the leak was coming from although the inside was...

    Hi all, I could do with some advice on a Classic that's got a pretty serious leaking issue. I've got the option of getting this machine for quite cheap but the leak that they described looks pretty serious. (password - coffee) My guess is that it could either be a pipe or the pump. I...

    Hi all, So it would seem my woes with electrics have been caused by the pump leaking, of this I am now fairly sure. There is a great deal of scale around the joint (where the plastic tube from the pump meets the corner piece) and back onto the plastic tube from the pump. Whats the standard MO...

    I've had my Cherub for around a year now, all of a sudden the top of the steam arm (where the ball joins the actual arm) has started to leak water and steam. Has anyone experienced this before? Any potential solutions/fixes? Ideally I don't want to replace any of the parts, but I will if I...
  8. Gaggia Forum
    My leaking steam valve is getting worse so i'm probably going to replace it. Question is how to avoid the replacement going the same way? Also, does anyone have experience of cutting the end collet off to open the valve up for a mechanical clean. There is a youtube video of this procedure...

    I bought a New gaggia baby twin that I received today. Came with 3 filters, non pressurized. Two regulars and one for the pods. I plugged the machine and waited a bit for it to warm up. I clicked the hot water button and turned the black knob to get some water thru the system. Surprise! Nothing...

    Hi All, This morning whilst pulling a shot I noticed water running from the group head, down the portafilter handle and right into my shot . The portafilter was locked in tight with 16g, so I'm guessing a new gasket is required. After looking on coffee-hit I thought I was sorted but their...

    Hi guys, So recently my Cherub has started hissing after use, I can hear a faint hiss after I've pulled a shot/steamed some milk and switched it off. I don't remember this happening before, but maybe I was just not paying attention - is it normal? I'm obviously kind of worried because it was...
  12. Gaggia Forum
    Hi Guys, Apologies if something similar has already been discussed somewhere, I had a look but couldn't see anything suitable. I am very new to the world of coffee. I started out buying instant coffee, then real bean instant and now I have taken my first step in real coffee by purchasing a...
  13. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, Recently our (office) Gaggia machine started leaking water from next to the portafilter. Every time the coffee is slightly more tamped water drops from the portafilter holder (group?). According to one of my colleagues, one dose might've been tamped too hard and no water was coming out...

    Hi, I have an old and trusted gaggia classic with a rancilio steam wand. Recently it's started to drip more then usual from the steam wand. Has some valve gone? if so, which one? Thanks, Stu
  16. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, I've got a Gaggia platinum vision, which has started leaking from the steamer. I've run it through a descale cycle a few times, as I suspected it could be down to the valve being gummed up with limescale, but it's still leaking. It leaks slightly more when it's dispensing coffee, which...
