The nozzle on the end of the steam wand might be clogged, use a paper clip or pipe cleaner to clear holes on nozzle.

First check the nozzle at the end of the steam wand, if you have hot water for coffee then you should have something coming out of the steam wand. If the wand is not blocked and the pressure is low then the thermostat might need to be replaced.

Sounds like the steam wand is getting blocked some where either at the metal end or in the parnello wand if you machine has one at the end of the steam wand, if both of those are clean then try this push in on the steam knob if that works then tap rod assemble or steam valve needs to be replaced, make sure to ask about the stainless steel valve instead of the plastic one.

Steamer not working properly


If you get a few seconds of steam then nothing, try pushing in on the button, if that works the tap rod assembly or complete steam valve needs to be replaced.
If you get no steam, check the end of the wand to make sure it is not blocked, touch the wand to see if it is hot, if yes then it is being blocked, you will have to descale machine.

Gaggia baby espresso machine-Steam button is stuck


The only thing that comes to mind is that the machine is in steam/hot water mode. Unless you replace the switch and turn off the steam light so that it sends the water to the correct location. Also you might want to remove the shower screen and make sure it is clean.

No steam pressure with little to no water/steam


Remove the steam wand and inside you will find a small teflon like tube at the top, throw that away and run water through the wand to make sure it is clear then re-assemble in machine and test.

Baby gaggia steamer doesn't work


Does the machine brew hot coffee? If yes, then remove the parnello and clean the holes at the end of the steam wand. If that does not solve problem, then it is blocked where valve is connected to boiler, Try descaling machine. If no then the thermostat on the boiler has tripped and needs to be reset.

Where do I locate the fuse for the steam nozzle of the Gaggia Classic? - the coffee brews but no steam will come out to froth up -I was advised it was probably the fuse -all othe rparts have been cleaned


If the coffee brews hot then the problem is a blockage on the steam valve nozzle or line. Try removing steam wand and opening valve to see if it works, if it does the problem is in the wand that has been removed. Dismantle parnello and using a paperclip clear out the hole in the end of the steam wand.
