Gaggia classic steam knob


Have you turned the steam valve off tightly and cracked the knob inside allowing it to turn on the brass spindle.Try pulling the knob off and turning the spindle with a pair of pliers or a small adjustable spanner.If the spindle keeps turning you may have sheared the spindle off inside.If this is the case you will need a new steam valve complete as they are not repairable.Steam valve cost about 35
Tools required 5 mm alan key and 17 mm spanner for steam pipe

How to replace the steam knob from the DeLonghi Magnifica? Here pic with broken button: http://s3.imgimg.de/uploads/delonghi7e8dacc0jpg.jpg


I have had the same problem and the repair will not be onerous. You can buy a new steam knob on coffeemaker website (here the link for a new steam knob) but also on a lot of other web sites.

Don't forget to grease the screw that holds the steam knob. I have used some vaseline to mahe the replacement easier.

Had the same problem. I sealed my lips around the steam wand and sucked as hard as I could, first with open steam knob, then with closed. Obviously there was some air left inside from steaming before. Machine worked fine afterwards.

Gaggia syncrony compact is leaking. Removed top and it appears it is leaking from the area that the line goes into the steam knob. Doesn't leak when using the steam knob, just when brew coffee


Hi What color is the steam manifold? It is located under the black cover with the trough in back under the whit tube. If its whit or black it probably needs to be replaced. If you cool down the manifold after steaming you can prevent this from happening. Just turn off the steam and then open the knob again to run water. It comes out steam at first but then will turn to a water stream. Then you can close the knob and go about brewing or just let it stand.

Water leaking from steam wand when brewing shots


Try this from another post. It should help.

The steam wand began to seriously leak but a call to Starbucks Customer Service line and I was talked through how to adjust it so that the leaking stopped. It requires taking off the top/back panel of the machine (6 philips screws) then using a small allen key (1.5 mm I believe) to loosen and adjust a plastic oblong donut-shaped thing (a "cam" actually) on the shaft of the steam knob... no more drips.
The key to prevent dripping is to open the steam knob without putting pressure on it when it gets to the full-open stop position. Cranking it too hard when it comes to a stop in the full-open position will slowly move the cam out of position. Then the shaft doesn't fully seat inside the machine anymore and won't fully shut off the water to the steam wand. Then, no matter how hard you crank the knob in the shut-off position it will still drip. The purpose of the cam is to stop the knob from complete unscrewing and it also turns the pump on and off for the steam wand. The cam adjustment is very small but completely solves the dripping problem. Seeing inside the machine made me realize how easy it would be to repair problems as long as I can get the parts from Starbucks or perhaps Saeco.
