Question about Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine

Open Question

The filter holder does not "lock" into place when used with either filter .

I have a Gaggia expresso machine. I can only get the holder to lock without putting the filter in the holder. Its the same for the pod filter too. we had the same experience with a previous Gaggia machine. any ideas please?

Hi, have a gaggia newespress006, gaggia expresso pure machine. I have descaled it and tried to do a backwash with the holder with no holes and it still continually leaks after using it for coffee? An

Look for easy stuff first. If you can get the top cover off, see if any of the piping/tubing joints are leaking.

If it leaks around the portafilter while making coffee, you need to change the portafilter gasket.

If water dribbles into the portafilter after making coffee, replace the three way valve.

If it is dribbling water in to the catch pan it is either the three way valve that needs to be replaced or the boiler gasket leaking and needs to be replaced.

We got a gagia expresso color machine recently. We used it for a week and now the machine is not is not dispensing expresso. The machine makes sound but no expresso comes out. The tank has enough water....

Your are propably need to prime the machine. This mean that air blocked in the machine and need to get out and fill all pipe system with water.
To do this you need to warm up the machine and turn the hot water knob so you will get one cup of hot water from the steam wand. After that try to get some water from the coffee head without any coffee in the filter handle. Now the machine is ready for coffee again. You will need to prime the machine very often so try to remember the procedure. This will happen again usually after you use the steam process and this normal for your machine.

My new Classic made perfect coffee for the first three weeks but now it sprays hot coffee in all directions from the delivery spout

Do you mean the spout OR do you mean the filter holder.If it sprays out too quickly from the outlet,it could be because the coffee is too dry, too coarsely ground or not compressed firmly enough in the filter. If it is spraying from around the filter holder it is probably old coffee grounds stuck on the rubber seal in the filter holder head (the part of the machine that the filter holder attaches to ) You can buy a special right angled brush for cleaning the rubber seal in place OR you can fold a washup sponge and use the corner to clean around the seal.

Water on top of the filter after brewing

my experience with this machine is that this varies greatly with the type of beans you use. I would experiment with a few types of beans, roasts, and you might get lucky.

Cafe Roma Expresso/Cappucino machine

My understanding is that this is normal with units like the ESP8XL which use a pressurized portafilter. Non-pressurized units will leave a dry puck of used grounds.

Hi Riccardo,

Maybe the rubber ring that is underneeth the boiler has become hard and inflexible. You can order a new rubber ring thru your local dealer.
