I live in an area where we rarely get limescale forming in kettles and the like so I've not descaled Miss Silvia for the past 9 years. She's currently undergoing a complete strip down and rebuild. Steel frame at the powder coaters for a sand blast and re powder coating. Opened up the boiler for a "Look See" and found the pic below. 22g of nice flaky limescale. Boiler currently having a nice citric acid bath. Guess I'll be adding de-scale to my regular maintenance schedule
Hello all, I've read quite a few posts, and googled extensively. Gaggia Classic is circa 3 years old. Every 6-8 cups I have to clean out the solenoid. The last time I managed to empty contents into a white cup. Basically getting clogged with coffee. After cleaning, it runs perfectly, but only for 3-4 days. After 2 days it starts to slow, by day 4 it is down to drips and I have to clear the solenoid again. How do I stop this? Note I filter my water, there is zero lime scale, I have backflushed numerous times with the powder stuff. The shower curtain is cleaned. The coffee basket is clean... I'd think I need a new solenoid, but... it works then gets blocked, works then gets blocked, so would a new solenoid really help in this instance? Any help appreciated. Mark
