Question about Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine

1 Answer

My machine is pushing water through the system but when it comes out of the head it only comes out through two of the outlets and very slowly. It takes 3-4 mins to produce one cup of coffee. The steamer works perfectly. Is the problem likely to be the pump or would i get away with a descale

How do I vacuum my index pool

Even with an "upgraded" pump, it still doesn't provide enough suction to do a good job. They are just a better than non upgraded 'toy'! But... Take your vacuum hose with the vacuum head attached and one end connected to your telescopic pole and send it to the bottom of the pool. Then slowly feed the rest of the hose pushing water into the hose until you reach the opposite end. Water should come out of the other end! If it does not, you did not prime the hose correctly. Try it again this time push deeper into the water beating the hose slowly pushing the water up into the hose at the surface level. Once you have water coming out of the other end you plug it into your suction port. Turn on the pump and now you have section at the other end of the hose, that the vacuum head. Now just vacuum the bottom of the pool, as you would vacuum your carpet in your home.
all of that dirt, sand, silt, and other debris, will end up in your filter element. You will have to clean it, if not replace it.

Water leaking not just comming out of spout

Sounds like your water outlet is clogged. Open the head and push up the cup holder to remove. When out, clean out the tube at the bottom of the holder with a paper clip or something similar (I use a cake tester - long skinny metal rod. This will clean out any clogs in the output path. Also remove the bottom part of the cup holder and clean it too. Put back together and place back in brew head the way it came out. (Caution - some models you have to twist the cup holder to remove, and some it just comes straight out). There are many you-tube videos that will show you this also.

No water coming out hot water faucets cold is fine.

First check to see if the main faucet to your hot water system is turned on. It could be someone has closed it. It is located around the bottom of your system. If that is open, water should be entering the tap.. To check this shut the main faucet at your water system and using a wrench loosen the connection from the faucet to the system and slowly open the faucet to see water comes out.. If it does that means the main water serivce to the system is fine .. You can also check this at the system by gently opening the outlet connection which should be at the top of the system , ensure that the main faucet At the bottom of the system is closed, once the connection at the top has been loosened slowly open the faucet to see if water comes out of the outlet.. If it does then the problem is from the system to your household faucets.. Could be a crushed water line . Also check to see if your hot water faucet is not Jammed. Sometimes the rubber inside the hot water faucet could be blocking the water if the faucet has been recently over tightened when closed.. Hope all goes well

Spins but laundry is still dripping wet

This happens to me sometimes. My washing machine doesn't drain right into the drain, I have a pipe coming out of the back of the machine that I have to hook into the kitchen sink myself to let the water drain out. My washing machine was still full and I realized that it was because my sink was a little blocked and so it was draining too slowly and leaving water in the machine. If there was too much water, it would sometimes help to put the machine on again or put it on a drain cycle. My machine doesn't have a spin cycle so it will just give your clothes an extra spin so I couldn't do that and my clothes would still come out dripping wet. I advise that you give them another spin before you take them out if possible! xxThe fact that the washing machine is spinning but not drying clothes shows that there is some problem with the outlet of water. The water outlet is blocked. You can check for the blockage yourself. Normally threads or other waste accumulate in the water outlet, and if possible you can remove it yourself. Otherwise call your washing machine's customer services center and ask them to send a repair man

When i drive the car the engines smells like something is burning and runs hot

Ok, check the thermostat, and it is easy to replace. Subarus have small radiators, could be clogged. Are your electric fans coming on? Are you losing water? Also may be a bad head gasket or cracked head. Of course, check all the hoses, including the heater hoses. The smell could also be oil leaking onto the exhaust pipe. Subarus are famous for this. But that will smell like oil, not antifreeze. Mainly, check to see if you are losing water. Also, there is a bleeder outlet on top of the radiator on the opposite side of the cap. usually the left side, if you add fluid to the radiator, do it very slowly and take off that bleeder, phillips head screw, until coolant comes out of the bleeder, then you know there is no air in the cooling system, If there is the subarus will overheat quickly, especially under a load.

Water leaks out slowly during use

Particles stuck in the valve.

Try applying water inton the outlet pipe towards the machine. This may help clearing clog pushed towards the machine.

You can use vaccum cleaner in blower mode also.

In the next drain it may get flushed

Espresso machine will not make Espresso.

Try this remove the portafilter and press the brew button, if water comes out of head, machine is fine but the grind or the tamping(packing pressue) used on the coffee is not right. If you are grinding the coffee just before using it, try a coarser setting. If you pre grind at the store then try tamping the coffee lighter.
