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.

Please try the following:
  • Remove the portafilter and activate the brew switch. Water should stream out of the shower screen. If not you need to clean the group components, or the machine is broken.
    To clean the group components, remove the center screw. The screen should drop down, the dispersion disk may be stuck, you can pry it loose with a flat head screw driver. Soak both of these in a descaling solution.
  • With the group components removed (as above) try brewing, water should stream out of a single hole. If not, you may have a faulty pump, or seals.
  • If water streams out normally, be sure that you are using the single espresso basket. This is the smaller basket that snaps into the portafilter, and has sort of a tulip shape.
  • Your group head gasket may be worn, and will need to be replaced. These need replacement ever 6 months to 12 months, and need to replaced even if the machine is rarely used, because they are made from natural rubber that dries out.
    Replacements can be found at many retailers online, a few are:
    espressocare.com, espressoparts.com, and seattlecoffeegear.com

Regarding the single shot pod and filter


the machine might or might not have had the pod filter based on manufacturing date. If you did not have one it can be purchased on Breville USA web site for $10.

XP2070 can no longer get the right amount of espresso when using ESE pods.


The amount of liquid is programmable but you have to have a working flow meter. Do you get the right amount when doing a single or double espresso? Read the instructions to reprogram the amount of liquid when using the ESE pods which are most likely single shots. If the memory functions does not work then most likely you have a faulty flow meter which is not too difficult to replace and costs < $20,

Are you tamping the coffee at all?

The ground coffee needs to be compressed, using a tamper, to form a hard puck that the water will then get squeezed through.

This has already happened to the ese pods so needs to be replicated in the portafilter when you place freshly ground coffee into it.

The plastic tampers provided with your machine are not fit for purpose and a metal tamper is highly recommended. The base of the tamper should be 58mm

Spout for frothing milk pops out


You can get the user manual on this link if you need it; http://www.gaggiaparos.co.uk/ Check page 6 of the download, page 12 of the manual - the spout should just pull off and push back on. If it wont, then either something needs cleaning more, something is stuck in the tube or more likely the part of the nozzle that comes off, something is broken, or you need to use a little bit more force. If it appears broken, (check in particular for a fine crack that is only visible when the nozzle is stretched i.e. when in place. This type of plastic often will close a crack enough to be near invisible when not under tension.) then you could try gluing it although i doubt if this would work. You could just put a stainless steel hose clamp around it, tighten up just enough to make the nozzle spout stay on (bit of a pain, but may work). You can contact gaggia for a replacement - in the USA; Importika 596 Fishers Station Dr. 14564, Victor, NY Mr. Salzman Ph. 585.742.5178 Fax 585.924.1499 web site: www.importika.com e-mail: sales@importika.com Hope this helps - if you can post back a photo or two close up of the problem area, i may have more ideas :)
