If you cannot get water from the brew head or the tea spicket, then the pump could be blocked or damaged, or the boiler is blocked.

The thermal fuse in the Gaggia Classic is likely tripped and it is not re-settable. The fuse has the following stamped on it: MICROTEMPSKMAHDG4A00184C I believe that is what is the culprit for all of us when the "power doesn't come on." Now, what is the rating of this fuse and where to get a replacement? The fuse is the small resistor-like, diode-like part in a clear tube mounted against the boiler, and it must be physically cut out of the line to replace it!

Hi There,

You are not getting enough steam, to produce the froth and there no blockage. I suggest you replace the thermostats. Takes 10 min max.. Gaggia thermostat set

Remove the screws on top of the machine you will notice the problem, I think it might be the elements that burnt out.

If the shower holder is stuck, it it probably stuck with lime or coffee oils. You could try backflushing with a little descaler if the gasket is still in place. That will dislodge some of the lime and then can be pried off with a flat screw driver. In case you damage/ break it - you can get one here. Gaggia classic portafilter

Does the red light on the left switch light up when you turn it on?

The machine needs to be descaled.

1. Disconnect electrical supply.
2. Remove top cover.
3. Remove pipe from elbow on top of pump body by unscrewing knurled collar.
4. Then, unscrew elbow from pump body.
5. Wrap threads of elbow with a few layers of plumbers PTFE tape.
6. Then carefully screw elbow back in to pump body (this can be a little tricky - be gentle and take your time - this worked fine on my Gaggia Classic).
7. Then re-attach pipe with collar. NOTE: The top of the pump body can be rotated by gently twisting - to get the pipe at the correct angle to the boiler and allow the pump to sit vertically on its bracket.
8. That's it! Check your machine is dry and clean, re-assemble, plug it in, prime the pump (it's in the manual) and pull a shot!

Either the shower is blocked or the grind on the coffee is too fine.

Exactly where did it leak?

First where are you located then check the support list for gaggia repair agents at importika.com, if there is no one close and it is not under warranty find the nearest espresso machine dealer or repair company in your town.
