The easiest place for this is either servicesunlimited.com or wholelattelove, they have a good supply of parts on hand or find your nearest gaggia dealer and get the part from them.

I have a 2004 Gaggia Syncrony Compact. It needs a new Steam Valve. Can someone give me a step by step instruction on how to replace it. Thanks so much.


First, I'm not a Gaggia representative.
* Check your warranty. Call for service

*** The following is for information only. ***
* Larger espresso machines use a solenoid or valve to allow steam (under pressure) to exit out of the steam wand. (see below for my links on how to change these types of solenoids.)
* Smaller table top home units use a small vibration water pump (ULKA) to pump water into a preheated boiler.
* The boiler is kept hot (takes about 3-5 mins to heat up.) then water is pumped in to the open heated chamber. Steam is forced out the exit port.
* Sometimes (after long use) the boiler or wand may clog up and introduce a back pressure to the pump. This may cause a failure in the pump and the seals. (no steam from wand but lots of steam coming from the unit housing.)
* To repair the smaller units requires the replacement of the pump.
* The boiler should also be check for clog or bad heating element.
* Check the boiler themostat (regulates the temperature)
* Check the boiler High limit.(prevents fire if boiler overheats.)

My Titanium leaking water. Under it


The steam valve assembly that the steam knob on the right hand side connects into is probably faulty. When you're steaming if you hear hissing coming from behind the knob then this indicates the connections into this assembly are leaking steam, and also hot water, which is why you're getting puddles under the machine. You can get a replacement steam valve assembly that fixes some issues with the original (part code SVM-17, available from www.partsguru.com) and will prevent the leakage, or you could simply try opening the top of the coffee machine and removing the tube that runs from the boiler into the steam valve. It has two o-rings that provide the seal where it connects into the steam valve assembly, and if you lubricate these with a food grade silicon lubricant it may fix the problem. My Gaggia is 7 years old so I decided to replace the whole assembly which costs about $50 and that solved the problem completely.

My gaggia classic steam control knob is inaccurate and fails to turn off the steam completely. the system leaks a lot of water into the tray


you should take out the knob first, than you try to disasembke the SHAFT of valve from the valve body, in this types(small espresso coffe machines) usualy producer use conical valve, without seals she close metal to metal, when you get out the SHAFT you will see one line on the conical end. for repairing it will be enough to visit one metal vorkery where they will take a small amount of brass from end and polish it. then you put it back and work again with your machine. During assembling valve change 2 o rings and put one fitting 1/4'' to block the shaft coming out.

ps: notice you only polish the SHAFT , dont let them to short the more than 0.5 mm

My machine pours steam out from the pressure valve, the machine gets very very hot ( to hot ) cant even touch the steam arm


For repairing your steam valve you must take it out from boiler(2 screws m6 hold valve to boiler) before unscrew valve you must take of valve plastic knob and steam pipe.
Carefully you take off the seal of valve, seal prevents axle from completely unscrewing. You unscrew the axle and you go to turner (metal parts shaping machine) there you repair the top of axle, it is like pencil, you only need to sharpen it a bit, than you change 2 o rings in axle, put it in back. Instead the seal you use now one fitting !/4" and you screw it on to prevent getting out the axle

Gaggia Evolution is overheating


Check the thermostat on the side of the boiler, that might be damaged.

My gaggia evolution leaks water while making coffee .It appears to be coming from inside the machine and leaks everywhere.I have disassembled the machine but i still can 't see where the water is coming...


There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

Machine Does not draw water into the boiler


I have had this same problem - it is due to an airlock in the boiler/tubes. Simple solution is to use a syringe or similar and gently force some water up the intake hose from the tank, then try the pump again.
