    How should I deal with this corrosion? (Nuova Simonelli Musica)

    I decided to open up my recently-purchased 2nd hand Nuova Simonelli Musica, and found significant corrosion...
    What should I do about this?

    And does this imply that I should consider descaling it?

    Also,
    The date on the information panel is November 2011 and it has a "Campini" pressurestat. Apparently newer ones were shipped with Sirai ones. (My pressure gauge sits at the top of the range, 1.5 bar.)
    I have read the discussion at https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthrea...nted-features-) and they talk about some older machines not having "giglers" (or "gigleurs"), which are for reducing flow and temperature I think. Does anyone have any experience with this and whether there are any things I should consider to improve my new old machine?
    Thanks!

    I would treat the white stuff. Now I am not sure whether it would clear with an acid or an alkaline. You could try bicarbsoda as you would ona car battery terminals, or critic acid. Wait for better advice. A chemical clean back to the metal then spray with INOX to seal the moisture away may make all good again.

    I'd also replace the Heating Element Gasket while you're at it.
    Most likely the source of the trouble in the first place.

    Hi. I'll ask some local (Townsville) service people, but would also like to hear more from any of you here, thanks
