Question about Gaggia Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
WholeLatteLove has the necessary parts; they are the valve and an O-Ring or gasket. The valve is held in place by two Allen head metric cap screws. You remove the knob, open the case, remove the steam wand tubing (you reuse this), take out the cap screws and the valve comes off. Just reverse for assembly, don't overtighten the cap screws as they thread into aluminum. I've replaced several of these over the years; they don't hold up well. I have one to replace currently, and plan on using the old valve body as an adapter for a commercially available needle valve that hopefully hilds up better and is easier to get and costs less. IIRC, price on the Gaggia part is about $35. Hope this helps.

I had almost the exact same thing. The fuse for your frother is out. If both the frother and the brew head won't heat, then it is your Thermal Fuse. There are two different fuses inside the machine. Take the top off, and find both fuses. Take a piece of wire and connect it to each end of the fuse. Now turn the power on. If it heats, then that is the fuse. If no results, try the other fuse. Either fuse should be cheap. My thermal fuse was $1.98. Good luck!

SOURCE: no steam
Is the coffee hot or cold?
If hot then the steam wand is clogged, try inserting a paperclip in the hole(Remove the parnello black plastic covering silver steam wand) at the end of the nozzle.
If cold then the element is not heating, if you remove the top panel on the machine there is a thermostat on the boiler. That might be damaged, some of them are resettable (it will have a red or brown pin in the middle) if it is a resettable one then push in the pin, if not then it will have to be replaced.

Check out this diagram it will give you a start on the machine. I think the problem is the valve above the 2 diffuser screws behind the shower screen.
