Question about Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Coffee spurting everywhere!

I have a fairly new Gaggia, however for some reason the majority of times that I try and make a espresso, the flow of water is very eratic and the coffee spurts everywhere instead of coming out in a nice flow. I am using espresso coffee and not over filling it with coffee. What am I doing wrong? Does anyone else have this problem? You're help would be most appreciated.

Many thanks

    I am having the same problem. We have had the gaggia for 2 years now. The first espresso comes out perfect, but when I do more than one cup, the coffee spurts out everywhere. I recenty descaled the machine thinking that was the problem but it still does it. I dont know what to do.... Hope someone can help.

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.

Why does my baby gaggia have good steam but no flow for espresso?


turn on as if to make a coffee and then the stemer. Some time it's to do with drawing the water from the tank. Otherwise I'd descale it, that will defo fix it.

Hi, Our Gaggia machine will not disburse water through coffee dispenser. Sounds like its operating normally till water flow should happen. Then the motor slows down to nothing. Have descaled to no effect....


Try this press the button for ground coffee then when it lights up press the coffee brew button, if water flows normally then the grind on the grinder needs to be adjusted coarser, if no water then the screen on the brew unit is blocked.

Brand new Gaggia Syncrony Compact will not pump water. Red light no. 27 flashes, and machine makes sounds as if trying to pump.


Open the hot water valve, if it flows for a second and stops, then pusi in on the knob if that works, call up support and ask for a new stainless steel valve for your machine.

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
