  1. Just a thought. If there is a gap, could a seam sealant be used to close it and avoid any more water ingress? I’m thinking of the stuff they use on car bodies for sealing panels. Small bead of that after doing your desired repairs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. No idea sorry. I’d assume spares direct from sage? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Ah that’s a shame! I think there are a couple of peeps that use 3D printed drip trays. Though I did come across a website that did a shorter stainless steel one as well, that seemed like a smart option. https://www.mrbean2cup.co.uk/gaggia-classic-stainless-steel-drip-tray Do you use a bottomless portafilter? That can help with clearance as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Swap the white restrictors to the new solenoid and fit it. All you can do is test and make sure no leaks. If that fails back to support to get those white gaskets. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I do a similar routine and haven’t had any issues with aftertaste. As Dave said, the cleaners pretty good and leaving no extra flavour. As you say do a good water only back flush after cleaning, works to remove last bits of cleaning stuff. Would be a waste of good coffee to bin one needlessly! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Weigh into a shot glsss! Should fit into a portafilter. It’s what I use. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Would this be any good size wise? It’s one I’ve seen a couple of times, though have never used it. Looks, pretty good. https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/4612/s/digital-drip-coffee-scale-3kg-0-1g-with-timer-function/category/400/ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Ah yeah, I have those exact trays as well! Big and a little one for ferrying the coffees to other half! Might repurpose one of them. [emoji108] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I didn’t think the Gaggia Classic has a pressure based brewstat. Was a solid state one (not sure of terminology). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. After your last coffee, and completing steaming, do you turn it straight off? Or do you after steaming, turn the steam switch back to brew temp and run the pump to purge the steam out of the boiler, to get it back to brew temp? It sounds like your turning it off after steaming. This means there is less water in the boiler next time you start. This may mean that a large head of steam builds when you next turn it on. Instead you should purge the boiler of steam after steaming, by running the pump to bring the temp down. This will fill the boiler reading for your next use. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. It might be worth OP trying to open up the machine? Are you able to remove the top panel where you warm the cups? If you can, and take some clear photos of the insides, we can identify the OPV if there is one. Generally, they look something like this: Again, pictures of the inside of the machine. As clear as possible. Might be a silly question, does it have a warranty, have you messaged the seller? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. I don’t know the size of your grinder OP but with mine (eureka mignon) I bought a cheap oven tray fro IKEA. Sits in that and keeps any stray grounds within the tray. Not ideal, still looks a bit messy but keeps it in one place! I stuck some little Rubber buffers on the bottom to stop the tray sliding about as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Great. Will Pm you now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I’ll take that for asking price! Just to confirm this this the tamper 58.4mm, *and* the mat? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. A good clean (backslash with deturgent) prior to trying this usually shifts it. If not then try the above.
