Question about Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine
I want to change the head gasket but cannot remove the old one. After removing the 2 Allen screws, the whole thing seems seized up and won't move. How can I free it without damaging the assembly?
Remove the water tank and drip tray. Then turn the machine upside down. That way you can see the gasket. Stick you allen wrench into the hole the screws were in and pry the center out. Now you can get a screw driver under the gasket and pry it out. It might come out in pieces but that is OK. They get hard and that is why they won't seal. They should be replaced once a year to work good.
