Old Baby Gaggia 91 - leaks steam all the time

Recommended Posts

This the red button model.  Machine was recently descaled by another hobbyist.  When we got it back it now leaks steam after using.  If the machine is on, it will be leaking steam.  Pressing the hot water button will stop it steaming, but then shortly after when the water has heated up, it will leak steam again.  Other than that it functions normally, but this new behaviour isn't right.

Think this might have to do with steam valve? malfunctioning after the recent clean.  

Any thoughts?

From the wand.  But then stopped after I cycled the steam and water a half-dozen times.  Then yesterday the pumped stopped pumping, it just made a noise.

We have bought a De Longhi Dedica Deluxe as my wife didn't want to spend thousands on a Super Automatic.  It is a piece of crap, but she is happy.  I am going to take it apart when the weather is nicer.  Sigh.
