    Using an ice pick or scratch awl, remove the old gasket and clean the coffee grounds from the head using a group brush, after cleaning insert new gasket, and use your thumbs to push it in place, then remove basket from filterholder, and insert filterholder in head to seat gasket.

I cant get my Gaggia Classic to work with pods


You need to use the single-serving size one-hole basket, not the double, with the diffuser valve seated beneath the basket. Then the Illy ese pod should be inserted with the decal facing up. Finally, and most importantly, when you lock the filter assembly into the machine, you need to close it firmly. Brown water can mean that the basket assembly is not sealed in tight enough.

I have a Gaggia classic and want to use pods. I've got Illy ese pods and the right (one hole pressurised basket) but still get just brown water. Can anyone help please?


I HAVE BEEN USING THE GAGGIA CLASSIC FOR 34 YEARS AND I ALWAYS BELIEVED THIS MACHINE IS BEING DESIGNED FOR SPECIFIC COFFEE QUALITY. THE ILLY ESE PODS ARE NOT FOR THIS MACHINE, TRY LAVAZZA PODS INSTEAD THAT IS SHAPED PERFECTLY WITH GAGGIA FILTER HOLDER FOR PODS.

My new Classic made perfect coffee for the first three weeks but now it sprays hot coffee in all directions from the delivery spout


Do you mean the spout OR do you mean the filter holder.If it sprays out too quickly from the outlet,it could be because the coffee is too dry, too coarsely ground or not compressed firmly enough in the filter. If it is spraying from around the filter holder it is probably old coffee grounds stuck on the rubber seal in the filter holder head (the part of the machine that the filter holder attaches to ) You can buy a special right angled brush for cleaning the rubber seal in place OR you can fold a washup sponge and use the corner to clean around the seal.

Can you repair a seized solenoid ?


Yes, but you must clean it thoroughly. You can open the solenoid body and let it sit in acid for a while to clear the scale build and or rust buildup on the plunger and the silver holder. If you are going to do this you must also replace the small O-rings on the solenoid square brass piece.

Hi Riccardo,

Maybe the rubber ring that is underneeth the boiler has become hard and inflexible. You can order a new rubber ring thru your local dealer.
