    I had the same problem following a move and 1 month storage. it worked perfectly prior to the move. water flows out through the casing and no steam goes through either the coffee part or the steam part. 

    I took the top off and looked inside and can't see any corrosion around the boiler part (sorry i don't know the proper names for the parts!). is this seal actually inside the boiler part? it's not obvious to me how i would take that apart. 

    gxmason - how did you ever resolve the problem?

Sounds like the machine was exposed to freezing temperatures?

If so, you probably cracked the boiler and the boiler section needs to be replaced.

    Sorry didn't the model.
    If it's leaking from the group head the internal boiler seal will have perished.
    To confirm this remove the top cabinet screws,have a quick look, it will be all white with corrosion.
    It's a fairly involved job so if your not sure take it to a service agent.
    Good luck

Gaggia Classic won't turn on, no light at power switch

I would suspect rough handling of your suitcase, leading to some loose or broken connections inside. I recommend opening it up and looking for obvious disconnections. If you don't see any, the next step will be to use a tool like an electrical continuity tester (which can also test for a blown fuse). There is a lot of information about Gaggia Classic repair online -- just search for "Gaggia Classic repair".

Started up gaggia classic for the 1st time today. followed the instructions in the manual but when switching on the pump, it made ery loud noise and no hot water or steam apeared through the nozzle or...

You need to let this happen for awhile until the pump "primes" or fills all the way with water. Let the it run with the noise for awhile. Also, let it sit for at least 20 minutes before you start running the pump.
