I wouldn't.. It destroys the gaskets, and the smell and tastes stay around too long.

Use Dezcal..

Can anyone tell me how i descale a Gaggia Vouge Platinum pls


There is a descaling solution that you can buy but i just use white vinegar.
Fill the tank with the vinegar and turn on. Turn the hot water button on.... run for 15 seconds and then turn off. leave for 10 mins and repeat 5-8 times.
Then hold the hot water button on for 6 seconds.

Hi my Gaggia Classic is not pumping water out of the perculator head, I have flushed the screen and the motor is running ok and the steam attachment works fine?


If you can get hot water from the wand, then the problem is in the boiler fitting that feed the head, try descaling again, or remove the screen and diffuser and clean area or backwash machine.

Is vinegar OK to descale a gaggia classic?


If you use citric acid on the Classics aluminum boiler you are risking
serious corrosion. To descale an aluminum boiler you need tartaric acid
based descaler.

  • but it is safe to use CleanCaf as a Descaler--Dissolve in water reservoir, run pump.

  • also it is safe to BAckflush the machine with Cafiza/Joe Glo/PulyCaff. NO detergent gets in the boiler. it is impossible.
  • dont use vinegar.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

After descaling my classic, no water is coming out


Try running the descale again it is possible that some of the minerals got loose and blocked the valve in the brew head. If that does not work then you will have to open the machine and unblock the valve or hose that is clogged.

Coffee takes 10 minutes to fill cup and very noisy - Classic


Hi there,
The most common problem with these machines is scale. Using a good descaler to start with may help but may not always solve the problem. If your machine is noisy it is the pump which may need replacing. If you open the steam valve when making the coffee it will shift any air lock. Out with that you may have to remove the shower plate underneath where the coffee handle goes and give it a good clean. Also there is a safety valve inside the group head which may be clogged up. I am a domestic coffee machine engineer based in glasgow and have machines sent to me from all over the UK. It is hard to eally fix problems without actually seeing the machine as it could really be anything. Boilers are small so tend to fill with scale and ****. go to www.theespressoshop.co.uk if you require any more assistance.

Kind Regards

Ventilate problem


need to go through menu to factory reset. This gets machine to ready. You now need to decalcify with a citric acid descaler, not vinegar. With the water tank filled with descaling solution go through the menu to rinse option and rinse machine. When finished rinse cycle and with remaining descaling solution push water button open side knob and rinse the steamer system with descaler.
