Question about Gaggia Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I have descaled it two or three times and I have also done a back wash on it a couple of times with the cup holder that does not have any holes.
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.

I think you have to replace the gasket in the machine where the portafiller fits on the machine.
Make sure your filter is clean before you replace any gasket.

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

Make sure the needle in the bottom of the K cup holder is not missing, broken or bent. Also, look at your used K cup when it comes out. Is there a hole in the top and the bottom? It sounds like the pressure is building up within the K cup due to a backup at the bottom of it. This could also occur if the bottom needle hole is obstructed. Be careful...the needles are sharp!

Doesn't sound like a descaler issue. I am having problems with mine and noticed that water is flowing back into the reservoir when it is pouring into the coffee cup. I think there is a valve that is not closing properly.
