Gaggia Baby - water leaking from round the edge of main bulkhead

Water leaks from around the bulkhead when making the espresso. It seems an internal gasket may have burst due to limescale blocking the main channel - is this a fix-it-yourself problem or a return-to-maker one?

Also, we now have to turn the knob several full revolutions before we start ot get any steam from the frother. More limescale build up? We do descale, just not enough probably for a hard water area.

You need to replace the main rubber gasket within the bulkhead. due to heat and use, the gasket cracks and no longer is able to seal the brew head. a new gasket should be part of the warranty but you can purchase one and replace your self, pretty simple.

My Gaggia Syncrony Compact has developed some sort of leak. Every few days I notice a pool of water spreading across the countertop in our pantry and pooled under the machine. The leak might be happening...


HI
I would suspect the seal on the machine where the tank sets on the machine. There is a plastic cap that looks like a doughnut, that will pry off (there are 2 hooks, 1 on each side). The seal is under neath. If you can stick your finger in the center of the seal and lift it out it needs to be replaced. When you put the new one in, run your finger nail around the outside edge of the seal to get it to slip in or you could damage the new seal.

It is very hard to say where the leak is coming from. If you can open the case of the machine a physically notice where the water is leaking from then we can tell you if you can repair it yourself or if you will have to find a service center.
