Question about Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine
Gaggia classic two weeks old, drips coffee after pulled shot and switched ot milk frothing function. Steam is leakier too. Didn't do that initially.
Where is the drip for the coffee happening,is it around the portafilter, or the tube hanging in the drain tray on the left, or from the shower in the grouphead.
1- Around portafilter..since the machine is only 2 wks old the it is possible that coffee grounds are on the gasket in the head, get a hard toothbrush or buy a groupbrush and clean group gasket also check for damage.
2- Tube in drain tray...If it is a continuous drip whenever the machine is on then the nucleus in the solenoid is either dirty or damaged, try backwashing the machine. If it happens only when you make a coffee then that is the discharge on the solenoid working. Run a backwash on the group and that will cleann out the discharge.
3- If it is coming from the shower in the group then the solenoid needs to be replaced.
As for the steam wand leak it sounds as though the valve is not closing. That will have to be replaced because it cannot be rebuilt.
