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.

SOURCE: gaggia classic -no steam from spout

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.

SOURCE: hi i have a gaggia classic there is steam coming but not

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.

IT IS INSIDE THE INJECTOR ASSEMBLY. IF STEAM DOES NOT COME OUT THE ACTUAL STEAM TUBE THEN ITS CONTROL VALVE OPERATED BY THE ROTATING KNOB IS CLOGGED. REPLACE THE VALVE IF DESCALING WOULD NOT CLEAR OF THE INTERNAL ORIFICES.

Gaggia classic steam knob


Have you turned the steam valve off tightly and cracked the knob inside allowing it to turn on the brass spindle.Try pulling the knob off and turning the spindle with a pair of pliers or a small adjustable spanner.If the spindle keeps turning you may have sheared the spindle off inside.If this is the case you will need a new steam valve complete as they are not repairable.Steam valve cost about 35
Tools required 5 mm alan key and 17 mm spanner for steam pipe

Hi, my 4 year old gaggia classic coffee machine's steamer no longer works. The coffee bit still works fine, but when i twist the knob to let the steam through, nothing happens. Can this be fixed easily?


It could be that the nozzle is blocked, and or the steam valve is blocked. Try descaling machine, if that does not help then you might have to remove steam valve to make sure it is not blocked.

There is no steam coming out of the spout....CUBIKA GAGGIA...and it steams from the main body of the machine. please help!! Thanks


Check the end of the wand that might be blocked, use a paperclip to clear. If that does not work then the valve needs to be replaced.

Gaggia won't prime


Put a cup under the steam wand and then open the steam valve while turning the pump on. Once you have pumped a few ounces of water out of the steam wand you can close the valve and it will start pushing water through the grouphead.

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.
