    Gaggia classic dripping from steamer

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    Gaggia classic is leaking/dripping from the steamer and I have noticed that it also leaks on occasions from the group head and waste spout (I know there is a name for it but cant think of it).

    I never over tighten the steam control valve but find that if I pinch it just that little bit harder it doesnt make a difference.

    Should I assume I need a new 3-way vavle?

    Cheers

    1: Group seal is how old ?

    2: When did you last do a chemical clean

    3: Valve seat in the steam valve dirty / needs replacing..
