Gaggia Classic Playing up

Recommended Posts

My mothers Gaggia Classic is apparently playing up in the following ways.

 

- Water is leaking out of steam wand.

 

- Coffee spraying outside of portafilter when pulling shot

 

- Apparently nasty weak coffee coming out as a result

 

I'm going to give it a service, replace group head gasket, put in new valve for steam wand. What else would be recommended to do/replace to try and restore original standards?

 

She previously used tap water through it so im guessing alot of the problem is coming from general build up of limescale.

Get a service kit so you can crack the boiler & give it a proper descale.
