The in formation on this page is for use of technicians and experienced persons. All others do so at their own risk.

Traditional Home Espresso Machines Have the Following Parts:
1. A brass or aluminum boiler (16 to 40 oz. capacity).
2. A boiler outlet valve to help increase the pressure of water, before it is pumped through coffee grounds.
3. An oscillating pump with or without external thermostat.
4. A steam valve with a knob to open & close steam/hot water outlet.
5. Thermostat to limit temperature of water or steam.
Limit for espresso water temperature: 90°C to 98°C
Limit for steam temperature: between 127°C to 152°C.
6. A thermofuse to shut power supply when temperature in the boiler exceeds the higher limit (usually 185°C).
7. Solenoid valve (selected Gaggia models only).
8. A filter cup holder handle to place ground coffee for extraction of espresso.
The pump models generally are easy to open. In most brands, the top cover is fixed with two to four screws. In the Barista/Rio Vapore models, the top cover curves around to the back and the top has two screws. The front end has about 1/3" 90 degree fold. This folded lip is wedged between two plates. It may be necessary to use a long screw driver or other rod, pushed under the top cover, alternatively on either side of the machine to nudge the cover free and lift up. Note the slide along the left side in the picture below. Once the top cover is taken off, the entire internal set up can be viewed. The pictures below show two popular models:
1. Gaggia Model Espresso (without solenoid valve)
2. Saeco Espresso Classico (rapid steam model)

Have a baby gaggia coffee machine and unable to find anywhere that will service or repair. The machine has worked really well for 3 years but now is making aloud noise when working and the flow is very...


The loud noise is coming from the vibrating water pump.
One posibility is that is full of scale or and dirt so you can try descale the machine.
Second is probably the water tank can fit corectly on the base and the valve on it does not open correctly or not at all so the pump it can not s**k water but air or a mix of them so we have the loud noise.
Finally you can remove the shower disk on the group head , locate above where you place the filter holder and clean it probably is full of dry coffee and block the water way out.
Please note that can be all above problem together.
Good luck

My baby gaggia dose (brand new out of the box) leaks


HI
Call who ever you bought it from and have them diagnose the problem. I think you have a disconnected hose or something worse.

Baby Gaggia Dose leaks


On the gaggia clascic there are 2 hoses in the back above the drain tray, are those in the water reservoir? If yes then there is a broken hose on the in side of the machine.

No water coming through - New Gaggia Baby Dose


Try this remove the portafilter, then press the button for brewing coffee and then turn on the machine, if both hoses are in the water reservoir, then water should flow out of the head after a few seconds.

Leaking water


Hi,
It sounds like the main valve is faulty. Replacements are available or you may be able to dissasemble it and replace the seal.

Hope this helps.
