Gaggia TS restoration

Recommended Posts

Did you manage to get the tip off? Mine is set solid too.

 

I love the TS, I'm really glad I bought mine!

I think it's not removable.. or at least not user removable. Let me know if you succeed though.

Has anyone with a TS been able to remove the steam tip? It's completely round but it looks like it can be removed: ff5a2779ff56ed934444610ef7cee07f.JPG

 

Its not removable I tried... Permanent plier etches into my steamwand. I even asked Steven. He said unfortunately its not removable. However, have a look in his shop, he has beautiful new white PF in stock

Looks really good. I would like to have a "play" at one but I think it will be too deep for our kitchen surface. Out of interest why is the unit so deep as the pump is actually not that big. Btw this is my first ever post having just registered.

I got most of the spares I need yesterday. I still need to buy a few more gaskets and the thermostat but the supplier doesn't have them on hand.

Recently I bought Gaggia TS in fine working condition. I also want to upgrade steam wand but Steven Heaton has it with a bit higher price. Problem is that it comes without teflon gasket and o-rings and these costs about $15 more, so it turns to be a $45 upgrade. Do you know part number of that steam wand? I wonder will this one fit https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/en/Gaggia-Deco-Steam-Tube-Length-275mm/m-3188.aspx it looks same and is much affordable.

 

Can you give me a contact of the local supplier where you got yours?

The part no I have is 310408. I think it is actually the same part as the one you have linked. This is the listing on the website of my local supplier (I live in Bulgaria so probably not of much use to you): http://combinabar.bg/en-us/category/product/4849330166687599056/?currency=EUR Based on the description it's indeed the same wand.

Thanks bronc! It looks exactly same, it's for Gaggia Deco machine. Unfortunately, Kombina Bar doesn't send to Serbia. Did you got this part http://combinabar.bg/en-us/category/product/4849330166687599059/ when you purchased your steam wand? I have it on my machine but it's in very bad shape and I would like to replace once I got new steam pipe.

 

I asked Kombina Bar if they are willing to send to Serbia. If they refuse I will order from https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk

 

Thanks for quick response and help!

I just checked my order and can't find this part. Maybe it was in good condition on my TS so I didn't need to replace it. If Kombina don't ship to Serbia I can order them for you and send them to you. If you have a PayPal you can send me the money there.

Thanks for your kind help. They agreed to send to Serbia and I sent them list of spare parts. Will see how much they will ask for shipping.

Hi, just received steam wand from http://www.combinabar.bg and I managed to unscrew steam tip. First I couldn't but after a lot of steaming sessions I managed to unscrew it only with two fingers! I guess it's 8mm, pipe diameter is 10mm.

 

I wish it was 2 hole tip. 4 holes are overkill for 300ml pitcher, you can't control it. Anyone has idea where to look for 2 holes tip with 8mm diameter thread?

Jam up 2 holes with sharp end of wooden toothpick and cut off flush with stanley knife etc. Can experiment with which holes. Then just leave, been more than 10yrs my elektra has been that way works great

I learned to use four holes tip with 300ml pitcher. There is no need to plug holes. You just have to introduce air for a 2 seconds (you have to hear ksh..ksh.. sound) and then whirlpool it for another 3 seconds, before milk starts to make roaring sound.

Take a look at this video

Dip a steam wand tip 3/4 under milk surface just under the line where it's connected to a pipe. Crank steam to full. Just look what guy on video does. You will have micro foam literally in 5 seconds!

Gaggia TS steams like crazy!
