  1. I have a sylvia (V2 I think) and am getting an issue where water/steam is bubbling BACK into the water reservoir The temperature of the water is hot, but I don't think it's just thermostat failure, more likely a blockage or leak The flow is far too low out of the head. I've cleaned so far with puly caff/blanking plate, but the blockage is clearly further back - even here it doesn't look as if the pressure 'builds' as much as normal for the back flow I intend to use some descaler tonight or tomorrow night. Any suggestions as to the likely cause? Blockage? Limescale?
  2. Right need some advice. Fitted a new seal today and also backflushed. After that, I followed the descale method described on this forum using the premixed gaggia bottle (grey with red lid). I ran some clean water through after and noticed some tiny limescale fragments coming out the group. I've now run a good few litres through the group and am still getting these segments. That's a picture of the drip tray. Any suggestions..? Another descale? I'm running water through group without showerscreen to stop it clogging. As per my previous posts, this is a 14 year old machine which has been used about 8 times 14 years ago.
  3. Hi Does anyone have a clear set of instructions for descaling a Cherub that they would recommend please. I have searched but thought someone might have a link to one that they used. Thanks in advance
  4. Hi all time again to descale my silvia but I've heard conflicting ways of doing it. I found an article to do 3rd each time and wait 20 mins each time but is this long enough How do you guys descale? Thanks
  5. Hi Forum members, Im trying to clear a blocked Tebe, using the faq guide for unblocking a gaggia classic for instructions & Paros exploded view diagram. When i descale i can get steam (and dark fluid ) out of the steam pipe. but initially none from the shower. I can remove & clean the shower. I cannot remove the shower holding plate (SHP) to clean.. I have tried turning mc upside down and filling the groupbody/shower holding plate with descaled, but I can’t move it (SHP) to remove it to clean. I don’t know how much force (if any) to use to try and prise off the shower holding plate. ( Id imagine its gummed up with coffee etc) . Any ideas? I have taken the top of the machine to see if I can remove the group body (GB) from the Boiler Assembly (BA) to try and access the shower holding plate (SHP) fro the other side, but i can’t remove the 4 allen screws holding them (GB & BA) together ( despite application of wd 40) to the screws. Ive stripped 1 allen key. What should i do? I repeated the descaling process ( pumping the coffee switch) a number of times and Im now getting occasional slow small drips from 2 of the 4 holes holes in the SHP. Am i doing the right thing ? Any suggestions on how to remove the SHP or any other comments please? Thanks in advance carlos
  6. Bought a Gaggia Classic second hand, it's one of the Italian built models with stock setup. I have a feeling the chap I bought it from wasn't as fanatical about his coffee as many of the people on this forum so I don't think he spent much time worrying about maintaining it. I haven't actually received it yet but I'm expecting to get a machine that has never been descaled and possibly mistreated. So what should I do first? Should I open it up and go looking for trouble? Is there something specific that could need replacing/fixing on a machine of this age? I would like to get the best possible from this machine and keep it for a good while so when it arrives if its not a total lemon I also plan on modding it. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Hi CoffeeForumers, I have a Dualshit DCM2 that my Dad gave me when it stopped working. It just made a horrendous sound when switched on and primed. In fact it didn't prime at all, trying three times before giving up. Very loud. I believe this to be because there was no water getting to the pump. I thought maybe the pump was on its last legs. So, I stripped it down to get to the pipework. I cleaned out all the pipes with stiff wire and vinegar. Reassembled the device and started it up. Sucess! I now get steam and hot water at good pressure and flow rate from the milk frother wand but when I switch to "coffee cup" mode, it has three goes at priming and then make a low volume, humming pump sound but nothing comes out of the shower head. Like the water is stuck somewhere. Another pipe? An internal blockage in the die-cast metal heating section? I have cleaned the shower head in vinegar but it seems to me that the water isn't quite getting to that final section for some reason. Assuming there's still a blockage somewhere the pipework attaches to in the die-cast metal of the heating section, I will be stripping down and repeating the process. But, before i do that... Can the milk frother be working but the shower head not working for any reason other than pipe blockage? Could it be pump related at all? The pump goes quieter when the water is trying to go the shower head route. I can provide pictures or youtube vid if that would help but maybe someone has some insight just from the description? Strange that I got one process working (the steam wand) but not the main coffee making section. It seems most likely to be another blockage somewhere, I'm just not looking forward to taking all the screws out... again. Thanks for reading, hope you can help!
  8. Just got out the bag of items which came with my DTP so that I could do a descale. What are the tablets on the left of the attached photo? It says on the label 'insert one tablet in the special opening' Once the Sage provided stuff is used up can I use Puly cleaner as I have a box left from when I had the Gaggia. Richard
  9. Hi All, I have a problem with my three-year-old Quick Mill Verona insofar as the rotary pump has stalled/seized. I can hear it electrically buzzing, but there is no rotation. I'm pretty sure it's not an electrical fault but excessive scale build-up within the pump head as it is well overdue for a descale. But this creates a Catch-22 situation. I can't flush descaler through the machine if the pump won't run, so how do I get round the problem? I know I should have descaled sooner, so it's my fault it has happened... any advice gratefully received. Thanks in anticipation. In all other respects, the Verona is still superb. Tony
  10. I've had my Sage Oracle for almost a year now, and I have to say, the coffee it makes is very good. You just need to spend some time adjusting to your tastes. It is also very sensitive to the quality of coffee beans you use: type, freshness etc. So a lot of adjustments even if you use the same beans but a "new batch". My problem really is from the error messages that I get. Change Filter, Service, Descale. These started to come up after a week of use so initially I thought nothing of it and followed instructions accordingly. However subsequently when it reappeared again after a short time I called it in (as it is still under warrantee) and an engineer was dispatched. To cut the story short, I have had quite a few visits, but the issue never got resolved. I have even had the machine taken away to be tested but the service people couldn't replicate after they reset the machine and tested at theirs for a month. When the machine was returned to me, I get the error messages popping up again after a few days use. The last resort was to change the machine altogether, but this still didn't resolve my problems. Same tests were made on the second replacement machine but the error messages that pop up could not be replicated at the service centre, just at mine. I have had my machine returned to me, the engineer whom I got to know by now, and myself noted that there were no error messages on receipt of the machine. However all messages popped up again the following day. My final test: I followed the instructions to reset the machine, put a surge protector on the machine, but unfortunately I still get the error messages popping up - incidentally the messages can be random, all coming up, or some coming up but always at least two error messages. Any ideas? Anything else I can test? Is there a different/more thorough reset I can do to test out with the surge protector? It is all very frustrating! The coffee produced is fine, just the annoying error messages!
  11. Hi everyone, I've had my Gaggia Classic for a while, and we live in a very hard water area so have done my best to remember to descale the machine regularly. Unfortunately I've let it slip a bit too long this time, and my steam wand appears to be blocked somewhere along the line. A full descale yesterday hasn't sorted it out - is there a way I can remove / inspect the wand for blockages before I call an engineer? Could it be related to some other problem instead? I'm getting water through the group, but nothing from the wand itself (just a small dribble from the point where the wand leaves the machine housing when the valve is opened) Hope you can help! Thanks, Chris
  12. Hi all After many years of using and heavily modifying Gaggia SBDU Baby/Classics my curiosity has finally got the better of me and I snaffled up a secondhand refurbed/repaired Sage Dual (yes, from XSitems). I know the risks of buying secondhand and but am sufficiently skilled in diagnosing and repairing Gaggia units (albeit only SBDU ones) that I figured I'd take the risk, if only to get first hand experience of how the Sage DB works. Anyways, the good news is that it appears to work fine. The case is in good condition, there are no signs of leaks, the pumps make the expected noises and it makes lovely coffee when paired with my K30. So far, so good. Question: the "Descale" message appears on start up - no problem, I have plenty of experience of descaling - I live in Manchester, the water is very soft here so we get little scale build up, if at all - however since I don't know the machine's history I'm tempted to descale it... Having done plenty of research on the web it seems to me there's quite a risk of actually doing damage to the machine, given the number of examples of people experiencing problems (esp with the steam boiler element it seems). Soooo, it's working perfectly well right now, I live in a very soft water area - would anyone care to advice me whether to go ahead with a descale or just leave it alone? Thanks in advance. Jerry
  13. I picked up my first classic last week and only got around to having a play with it yesterday, only to find that when running some water through it, there was a few little black particles and a small amount of lime scale in the water. 1. Should I be looking to flush this out wit some descaler? If so should I opt for the Gaggia liquid or tartaric acid? (I have some tartaric acid but I'm not sure what ratio I should use, or I can order some gaggia solution online) 2. Strip out e boiler and clear it out with a dremel style tool? 3. Replace the boiler. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm a little bit gutted to say the least, as I was really looking forward to making some proper coffee
  14. Hi all. Very new to all this! I bought a second hand Gaggic Classic as my first machine and it has been sitting for a while so I want to rebuild it from scratch before firing it up. My main concern is water contamination due to limescale and other ickyness - I don't want to be drinking coffee made with dirty water! I've taken the boiler and copper parts apart and descaled them with citric acid which worked well. The main pieces that are left now is the water pump, the silicon tubes and the teflon tube. Firstly is it possible to decale the water pump? Can I open it up and take it apart? Can I run something through the machine instead to clean it? Secondly is it worth replacing the teflon tubing that's connected to the top of the water pipe? I took one nut off and it looks quite scaled and for peace of mind I would prefer to replace it. Finally how can I replace the two silicon tubes? I bought a replacement tube which is a single piece that's 1 meter long whereas the existing tubes inside the machine are much shorter. Is it as simple as cutting the tube I have to length with a Stanley knife to length and popping it on the existing pump headers? I couldn't find much online about replacing the silicon tubes. These questions I'm sure are terribly basic so apologies and thanks in advance!
  15. Just checked out Puly descaler sachets on amazon which the description states isn't suitable for thermocoil/block machines. Just single and dual boilers. Any idea what descaler is suitable? Excluding the overpriced sachets sold by Sage Many thanks
  16. I own a gaggia classic which I pull two shots per day from using Volvic water. I'm looking for some advice on how often I should descale this machine considering the above?
  17. Hi all, Been having a few issues with my classic. I bought it off the forum around the end of Jan and I know it had been fully cleaned, serviced and descaled. I'm a light user (6-8 cups a week) but after 6 weeks all of a sudden the flow rate had slowed right down. Even without the portafilter on it was taking over a minute to get 30ml out. So I descaled and after running the descaler through the group head for a few mins there was a bit of a splutter and flow rate was back up to normal. A couple of weeks ago the same thing happened again any flow rate had slowed to a trickle (i gave up but would probably have taken 3 mins plus for 30ml). This time there was less of a splutter when i descaled but as with the first time after descaling the flow rate was back up to normal. I typically wipe the shower screen wand etc every use and backflush with water after every other use. I backflush with Puly once a fortnight. When i've descaled i've removed the shower screen and the bit above that (not sure of the name but the bit you need allen keys for). I live in a soft water area (Sheffield) so wasnt expecting to have to descale anywhere near as often - and am concerned about over descaling. I had also been using a cheap in tank filter ( a few quid from happy donkey) but i'd removed that after the first instance thinking that might be the cause. But seems it wasnt. Any thoughts? Have I just been unlucky with rogue particles from the water? Do I need to be concerned if i have to descaled every 6 to 8 weeks? Thanks, Mike
  18. Hi AIUI, the solenoid valve should divert the water, at the end of the shot, leaving a dry puck. If I remove the portafilter immediately after the shot, there is normally water on top of the puck. Does this indicate a valve blockage? If so, what should I do to clear it? Will back flushing work, or make it worse? Thanks.
  19. Hi there! I'm relatively new to the espresso world. I've inherited a barista express (yes I've read its not the best but its perfect for me) and would love to keep it working as long as possible. It's been around a year, and afraid that the London hard water was affecting it I ran it through a descaling procedure. After reading about how tough descaling is on machines I now regret that and flushed the whole machine thoroughly. Lesson learned and I'll never descale again. Sage makes hard water filters, which I read are ion exchange resin based, so if I let the water sit in the tank with this filter over night (I'll stir it before brewing to get the water more airated) and change the filter every 4-6 weeks (instead of 8 weeks as recommended by manual) should all my bases be covered? Is there anything else I can do to improve the water so that it doesn't build up scale in the machine? The manual specifically says to only use tap water, so I am curious a) why they say that, and B) why so many people recommend bottled water? What are the risks? Thank you!
  20. Hey all, I know there is plenty of discussion on Citric Acid previously and have looked at these, however, just want to see if people had any direct recommendations. There are loads of variants and versions of this on eBay etc, however, none of which have any real info on concentrations. So, nice and easy, does anyone have any links for what they've used and what they know works well. Not that it matters hugely, but it will be to descale the Fracino Cherub. Thanks all.
  21. hi all there is lot of conflicting info out there on this subject. Rocket for example say do not use descaling solutions and Francino say you dont need to as long as you use soft water. Guy from Fracino says use Brita filter as some bottled water do more harm then good. Any advice? Im getting a new Cherub and want to get it right from first use ha
  22. Morning all, Picked up a second hand Bambino recently for my workshop. Unit was serviced in November of this year and had lots of new parts (inc element), however on setting the unit up my water appears to be rather cloudy (even after leaving it settled for a long time, so clearly not just bubbles) previous owner had the unit running with a dual filter setup and i am running the Fracino DSU 10L filter (flushed before use with 5 buckets of water, although was running clear by bucket 3) I am planning on dropping the water out today and inspecting the boiler for scale, there was a picture of the boiler internal on the advert and it was good so am i right in thinking if there is scale its probably in the pipes? It is mostly noticeable if pouring hot water from the hot water tap, but also its not perfect coming from the group heads either. Is it worth me running a descale first? If so what with (citric acid?) and what is the process?
  23. Hi all, It would seem that my faultless verona is no longer faultless following a full descaling session where there is now a very small leak (10-20ml over the space of 8 hours) has developed. That aside, a more serious fault has developed where the boiler suddenly lost pressure and this was due to the feed inside the water tank not being submerged in the water correctly. Now these units automatically detect when there is no water feed and either top up or switch off - however this didn't happen. I'm beginning to think when I set the brew boiler switch off for the draining sequence I may have inadvertently switched something else off. With this in mind, is there a list of PID settings for this machine so that I can review as I'm struggling to find anything on the net. With regards to the leak I will review this (take it apart or send back to bella for repair) but I'd rather deal with this more serious issue first which is most likely a setting (I am hoping). Thanks in advance. Mark
  24. When I introduced myself I said I don't drink espresso, but it made me think about trying it again. The stuff from poorly maintained B2C machines and cheap home items is not a fair way to judge coffee. And so eBay beckoned, and for £45 I acquired a Gaggia Classic which had seen better days. It was advertised as having started loosing pressure, so with my vast knowledge (I looked at one video on Youtube) I set about resolving this issue and servicing it back to working order. Seals ordered (well,almost) and a sunny Saturday outside meant it was time to get cleaning the Gaggia. It was a little dirty outside, had a little scale where water is added and moderately dirty inside the case. The wiring was then labeled (those things where you type the label and print) and a photo taken just to be sure I could reassemble in roughly the right way. The parts came apart quite easily, no bolts too tight and so I get to see the inside of the boiler and grouphead. I'd researched before starting and having come to the conclusion that the citric acid I already have is too harsh, I purchased some tartaric acid, I think it did need descaling. While that's cleaning time to clean the shower head carrier, well if it needs cleaning. I think it needed it. Of the four holes through it, three were blocked fully and the other restricted. It had a solid chunk of residue filling the gap between carrier and shower, with approx a 1cm diameter circle around that one functioning hole. The pipes needed cleaning also, having scale inside them, ditto the valves. So, one day spent cleaning (I even took off the badge and cleaned behind it), polishing etc, and it's all back together except the seal that I forgot to order. New seals arrived for the portafilter, and the new naked portafilter (co MR Shades) and having run a fair bit of water through, and one extraction (thrown away as directed to following de-scale) I've now made an espresso with it. Grabbed coffee, made espresso, decided too strong to start with for me, so add hot milk and taste. Mmm, I taste caramel, look at coffee bag and sure enough tasting notes confirm it. I've had that same coffee before but not noticed the caramel anywhere near as pronounced. So, perhaps I'll try an espresso and like it from this machine, it certainly looks that way. Now to think about PID.
  25. Hi All, apart from the first 2 months I've owned my ECM I've used Ashbeck bottled water exclusively (for the first 2 months I used Brita filtered water, filter very regularly changed, and a good descale before the switch to Ashbeck). From what I'm reading it seems others who used Ashbeck don't descale at all ? Is that right ?? I was thinking of doing a precautionary descale (with Puly - which I've used with my previous machines) every 3 months or so, but if it's not needed I really won't miss having to do it ! Would love to know what long term Ashbek users have found regarding the dreaded limescale..... Pete
