My Gaggia Classic makes a noise that sounds like something is stuck and no coffee comes out. Can I fis it my self? Jon

as far as i know:

if water comes out thru the open steam exit running the pump, get out the vinegar immediately ( it/s eating the alu boiler) dissemble magnet valve and free the little whole in it with a needle, machine should run again, otherwise check electric function of magnet valve.

if no water comes out of the machine through the open steam exit, open the boiler immediately, get out the vinegar and check the pump.

Hi I have gaggia classic cofe machine. It is used once in a week. Two weeks ago my gaggia stop pump woter in to coffe mug. Just like its not strong to pump water thru all the system. Never have this...

Remove the screw and shower screen, make sure screen is clean and you can see through all the holes in it, if not set screen on the stove (open flame) to burn out the coffee oils in the filter. The coffee will burn before the screen gets any damage. When done you should have a new screen reassemble and test.

Hi, My Gaggia Classic is not working. No water

try to clean the group shower which it can be ansrew by one cetrer screw and if you can you can open the machine and remove to clean also the coffee group solenoid valve. Bothe the valve and shower can be full of dry coffee that can blocked the way of water coming to the grounded coffee.
If you manage to clean everything above and the machine work ok so from now on in order to avoid the problem again try to flush water from the group many times without any coffee. With this is like you wash the group shower and valve from any remai coffee.
Good luck

Hi. My Gaggia Classic doesn't prime. The pump makes a noise, the boiler gets hot but no water is sucked up out of the reservoir - please help!

I have a Gaggia Espresso maker and to prime it I have to remove the reservoir and use a tall glass next to the machine so that the hose is almost flat. It seems to **** the water up easier that way. Good luck.

Gaggia Classic - No Heat, Hot Water or Steam

There is a thermostat on the boiler disconnect and check to see if you can get a reading using an ohmsmeter, if no reading replace the thermostat. If you get a good reading then disconnect the element and check for resistance.
