    Gaggia Carezza steam knob stuck- help!

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

    Ive got a small problem on my Carezza that I havent been able to dig up any info on- my steam knob suddenly went quite stiff and almost unmoveable. Once it heats up, it becomes even worse. I dont think its scale buildup because I descaled it fairly recently and always use filter water, but I wonder if it could be anything else?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated before I just give up and throw some food grade lubricant at it.

    update- gave up and threw some food grade lubricant at it, seemed to do the trick. Hope that proves to be useful for someone else one day!
