    My Mara PL62 started sending a lot of water back to the tank, the tank got very hot, and thus the pump started often as well. I thought this had to be the 2way solenoid valve and replaced this now. There is still some smaller amount of water leaking to the tank when not operational, but less...

    Having had my GC apart for the first time I'm now both better informed about how it works, but also slightly confused! It's generally of no importance whatsoever other than for my general understanding, but I'm particularly curious as to how the OPV and the "overflow" work with each other. As...

    After almost 5 years of near faultless operation since new, my Rocket Cellini may have a faulty 3-way solenoid valve. Recently, the used pucks have been soggy and are getting stuck on the showerscreen, therefore I suspect the valve, However, when backflushing the re-circulated water is...

    Hi all, I was having the usual buzzing noises and therefore stripped down cleaned the valves, and replaced both solenoids. Now however I get no steam or hot water through the wand. With the machine powered on when I press the button for a shot the initial "click" noise I am used to does not...

    I just finished a full teardown and rebuild of a Gaggia Classic and it's not pulling water through. Seems to be the solenoid valve but I took it apart and descaled it. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? I'm a bit stuck now

    Hi all. I put up a video here with a problem with my Gaggia Classic a few days ago, and the consensus seemed to be that the solenoid valve had gotten blocked with scale debris. The machine is 2011 but new to me, bought second-hand recently. I have been trying to get myself set up over the last...

    A question for the Gaggia tifosi. I noticed the third blade has no plug connected to it. Is something missing in my Classic Does it have another function like an earth wire perhaps?

    Hi can anybody help me diagnose what's wrong with my Sage BE, which has worked fine up to now, but ceases to deliver any shots now. I ran a cleaning cycle as the light came on, and also descaled with white vinegar After that I have a rattly solenoid noise, and the shower head delivers a tiny...

    Hi, I am the longtime owner of a Gaggia classic (7 years), and due to a fear of taking things apart have never given the boiler and solenoid a good clean before. The water flow through the group head has stopped (water and steam through the wand is still fine), so I took out the solenoid and...

    Had my DB serviced and repaired today by Coffee Classics as it was leaking steam. Glad I did as it needed a good going over by the sounds of it from the Engineer. Leaking steam was fairly obvious but the main buttons on the front had a slight electrical buzzing noise when pressing at times...

    Afternoon all, new user here, after experiencing a lack of water flow through the head (it does come out the wand) I'm trying the clean/descale the solenoid. However I can't undo the top of the valve from the section that attaches to the boiler. I have the electrical unit off just the last part...

    Hi all, after recent descale of my classic I have lost water pressure through the group. I have been using a water filter jug which I know doesn't help much with scale, my bad. I have stripped the shower screen and dispersion plate and cleaned but still no water pressure. I did another descale...

    Greetings from Canada! I'm overhauling a used classic (late 90's gold model) that I recently purchased and it seems that the solenoid valve assembly is missing the main o-ring seal. It looks to be around 18mm in diameter but not sure of how thick it needs to be. I do know that a 2mm ring is way...

    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...

    This week I bought a used Gaggia Classic, and to my dismay there was hardly any flow through the grouphead. Thankfully, the forums have been a great help, so I cleaned the grouphead, and when that didn't work I opened up the machine to clear out the solenoid and descale the boiler. However, I've...

    I have always experienced a soggy puck after pulling a shot. Could this be a solenoid issue....? I.e. The solenoid isn't closing off quick enough following turning the water off? If this is the case, what would be the suggested remedial action...? (Gaggia Classic) thanks Paul

    Right so, need a couple of things clearing in the old brain pan about my Gaggia Classic please folk. Back flushing, is it really necessary to do that, wont it force crap into the solenoid and end up blocking it!? This takes me to the next thing, the solenoid, mine is still the original...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum! I bought a second-hand Gaggia Classic a few weeks ago, which was working fine for the first couple of weeks. About a week ago water would stop coming through the grouphead, which seemed to be triggered by trying to backflush the system (which I had done...

    Are you supposed to change the group gasket regularly? Or is it OK to only change if there is a leakage or problem? I have a Silvia V3 and had it already many years and never changed the gasket. I don't have any problems just wondering if I should change it more often. On ebay I can see two...
