If I understand ...

Sometimes the "gunk" will collect behind the screen on the grouphead. There should be a screw there that you could removed and clean the screen and behind it.

I hope this is helpful.

Low flow, pump starts normal and within a few second becomes quiete


Hi There,
Try descaling - sounds like the the solenoid is blocked with lime - don't use vinegar! Try that 1st.
If machine is more that 2 years - not regularly descaled or no water filter replaced regularly, it probably the solenoid.
It the machines is 4 years + replacing both would be a good idea. Gaggia classic solenoid Vibration pump Gaggia Rancillio

How do I clean the solenoid on my Gaggia classic?


Descale the machine or backwash the group, just make sure when you are backwashing the return tube is not in the water reservoir.

Is vinegar OK to descale a gaggia classic?


If you use citric acid on the Classics aluminum boiler you are risking
serious corrosion. To descale an aluminum boiler you need tartaric acid
based descaler.

  • but it is safe to use CleanCaf as a Descaler--Dissolve in water reservoir, run pump.

  • also it is safe to BAckflush the machine with Cafiza/Joe Glo/PulyCaff. NO detergent gets in the boiler. it is impossible.
  • dont use vinegar.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Coffee takes 10 minutes to fill cup and very noisy - Classic


Hi there,
The most common problem with these machines is scale. Using a good descaler to start with may help but may not always solve the problem. If your machine is noisy it is the pump which may need replacing. If you open the steam valve when making the coffee it will shift any air lock. Out with that you may have to remove the shower plate underneath where the coffee handle goes and give it a good clean. Also there is a safety valve inside the group head which may be clogged up. I am a domestic coffee machine engineer based in glasgow and have machines sent to me from all over the UK. It is hard to eally fix problems without actually seeing the machine as it could really be anything. Boilers are small so tend to fill with scale and ****. go to www.theespressoshop.co.uk if you require any more assistance.

Kind Regards

Gaggia Classic - water not flowing


Remove the screw and shower in the group, then press the brew button, if water flows then clean shower. I will send instructions for descale and backflush. Cut time for backflush by half.
