This is all assuming that the wiring to the solenoid is doing what it should be doing i.e. its not broken in any way, no loose connections, no spade connectors loose etc.

May be worth checking the wiring back to the brew switch to check its getting its feed correctly.

I have extremely poor electrical skills, as far as I know its basically magic, what would you advise me to do at this point? 

I am happy to dump this gaggia and pick up a new gaggia if needed, I think they go for $140ish on ebay if I remember right, and I've owned this one for YEARS maybe its just time to replace it

I was just thinking of tracing the wires back from the solenoid to the other end and making sure there are no torn cables, no connections that have come loose etc.

I had a visual look at them, they seem fine

Sorry if I’m stating the obvious or I’ve missed that it’s been covered. Have you cracked the boiler open to see if there’s some bits of scale lodged somewhere? Also you say soaked in detergent. Have you descaled with acid too?

cant crack open the boiler because the bolts are messed up, cant do any descaling of any kind because the water isn't flowing from the group head
