You either have to adjust the grind finer or tamp your coffee a little harder.

    Have the same problem and yet to speak to La Gaggia....and trust me it is nothing to do with grind or tamp of your coffee.
    Firstly I have owed La Gaggia for 15 years and have tried every conceivable grind etc and same horizontal spray.
    I kept trying because I was in denial that a La Gaggia could be faulty but the machine deserves the bin if having to fiddle so much is the only way to solve the situation.

If coffee is brewing out the side of the head then the group gasket needs to be replaced because it is damaged or there might be coffee grounds stuck to the gasket and it needs to be cleaned using a brush or you can also use cotton swabs.

Water comes out of steam nossle when operating brew button


If it only happens when you are brewing a coffee, and not while you are just running the head without the portafilter in place, then the grind might be too fine and the resulting pressure is forcing through the valve. Easiest solution replace the steam valve.

Gaggia baby espresso machine-Steam button is stuck


The only thing that comes to mind is that the machine is in steam/hot water mode. Unless you replace the switch and turn off the steam light so that it sends the water to the correct location. Also you might want to remove the shower screen and make sure it is clean.

Gaggia Classic Spurts Everywhere


Hi there if your coffee is spurting out the sides it is because the group gasket is worn or has gone hard through use and now needs replacing. Basically when you twist your coffee handle on it doesn't always form a perfect seal and so the pressure causes the coffee to spurt out the sides. If you are not sure where to get parts get in touch with David at coffeeservice@live.com and he will be able to sort you out.
All the best

Baby gaggia steamer doesn't work


Does the machine brew hot coffee? If yes, then remove the parnello and clean the holes at the end of the steam wand. If that does not solve problem, then it is blocked where valve is connected to boiler, Try descaling machine. If no then the thermostat on the boiler has tripped and needs to be reset.

Coffee spurting everywhere!


Unlike the other person offering a solution I have experienced this problem like you when making the first cup. I found that sending a blank shot of water through first does the trick before putting the coffee grounds on. Hope this helps.
