Take it off, and heat up a pan of boiling hot water and add 1 cup of vinegar to two cups of boiling water. Once the water starts to boil, shut off the stove, and put the head in the pan, cover the pan and let it sit for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Afterwards wash it really well then you will be good to go. The head does twist off

Gaggia evolution not producing coffee

One question before I make any suggestions: If you remove the shower screen and screw, do you get a nice flow of water or is it still steam?
If you get a nice flow of water, then check your screen hold it up to the light and you should be able to see through the tiny holes, if not, get a pair of needle nose pliers and being very careful hold screen over an open flame like the stove burner. The coffee will burn before the anything happens to the metal. When it is cooled screw into group and see if the flow of water is better.
If you get nothing but steam then it is time to descale the machine.
