    Pictures in imgur album: I was using the machine that I bought a few days ago and the knob just came off and doesn't seem to be able to stay in place when I put it back on. All of the videos I've seen online have always shown these two components together (for example knob replacement...

    Hello, I decided last night that I needed to tear down and service my Gaggia Classic to clean and descale the boiler. I followed a YouTube video I found by WholeLatteLove and followed the instructions, I thought everything was going well, no parts left over at the end everything seemed to go...

    Hi all, I got an error code when turning on my Minima this week and I've been trying to figure out the issue ever since. I need an expert (paging DaveC !!) or at least someone with more knowledge than me at this point. Error code is "A1" displaying on the front display. The manual says (page...

    Hi all, I brought a Gaggia classic off eBay when starting out a month ago. However I think the seller had done a poor repair job as the steam handle is off centre and rubs on the casing. Indeed the whole steam tap is angled slightly towards the rear. I can't see how though as the boiler looks...

    Hello. I've inherited an old Delonghi MAGNIFICA ESAM 3000.B, which at first was working fine, but then after a day or 2, has just started failing. I got it for free, but don't want to simply add to landfill, as I'm not one who likes wasting good tech. At first the power button did nothing, and...

    Hi all, I am planing to sell my Vesuvius, and while I was inspecting it, I noticed some corrosion at the bottom of the machine, and what I think is a small leak from the smaller boiler. I bought it used on this forum January 2017, and machine is working fine. I want it to be in perfect...
  8. Gaggia Forum
    Hi guys, I bought a Gaggia Classic from eBay in 2015 but did not have much time using it until 1 month ago. Anyway long story short, after producing a really nice latte (in fact, the best I ever managed to pull off), I cant turn it up anymore. The machine was quite hot when I turned it off so...

    Hi everyone, A couple of weeks ago I had a mishap with my Mecoffee Pid, which sadly resulted in the melting of what I believe to be the switching transistor (though I might be totally wrong, see pics attached). I've tried contacting Mecoffee, to no avail. My only remaining options are either...
  10. Gaggia Forum
    I've just won a Gaggia Evolution on ebay. I was really pleased, its the red version which should fit in perfectly with my kitchen and the machine has had very little use (a shot a week over 2/3 years) in a soft water area. However, the vendor has just contacted me to say that they tested it...

    Hi, My Gaggia Classic has failed. I think it's the pump as that stopped while I was drawing water through. BTW, the power light is still working. I'm wondering is it worth getting repaired as it's a good 7 years old and used frequently. If it is, does anyone know someone who can repair Gaggias...

    My EK43 has stopped working and I'm pretty gutted. Here's what happened: - The EK has been working fine since I've got it (second hand). Exceptions have been that occasionally the on/off switch has stuck. - Last night I ground 15g for a kalitta with no problems. - The next dose I try to...

    I've been running a Cherub domestically for a couple of years (and it's a great machine), but lately the alarm that signals low water has been coming on even when there's water in the reservoir. I've solved this in the past by draining it and cleaning the probes/sensors before refilling, but...

    After having left the machine on for an entire day, the Senago doesn't pump correctly. It seems the pumping times have shortened as a consequence. If the wheel selecting coffee volume is set to 1, the pump turns off after half a second, at the maximum position 13 it turns off again after 2-3...
  15. Lever Forum
    Hi So I have been the very happy owner of a 2nd hand Pontevecchio Lusso (from eBay) for the past 4 months. Unfortunately about a week ago after it had been on for a couple of hours it tripped the trip switch. Everytime I tried to turn it on again it did the same. I've isolated the cause to be...

    Anyone repaired or have the skills to repair these or know a service centre ? Not for myself , but for cafe that . Cheers
  17. Rancilio Forum
    Thanks to help from this forum I've thoroughly enjoyed using a second hand Rancilio Silvia V2 (also bought through this forum) for the past couple of years. I've upgraded the steam wand, showerhead gasket and a few other bits and pieces over that time and gotten better and better results as I've...

    Hi, I recently bought an Izzo Pompei and after taking the top off - noticed that the pipe that goes into the valve for automatically topping up the boiler (controlled by Gicar) is disconnected. I took the bridging connector off but can't figure out how was it (or should be) attached to the...

    Hello all, My machine broke down this week. I believe its a faulty element, no continuity across it and the ECU is still providing power to it. I've seen a few places online supplying them, I assume its good practice to replace the element gasket at the same time? Is it as straight forward as...
