    How far do you go!
    l just replaced my group head seal and shower screen l was thinking about replacing the round bit of cast iron that the shower screen screws into because it was corroded.Does that mean that my boiler has corroded as well,what parts usually corrode on the gaggia classics.It is about 7yrs old.
    thanks in adv.greenbe

    I think what you are referring to is the rose holder assembly* according to the gaggia parts diagram. Also known as a dispersion plate. It should clean up ok with a wire brush or sandpaper.
    The aluminium boiler is the thing most likely to corrode, but can be replaced relatively cheaply. As long as the boiler isnt actually leaking, you can probably clean it up. A dremel or similar works well for this.
    Loads of threads here and elsewhere on repairing/restoring gaggias


    Oh, my gaggia was made in 1994, so yours is a youngster
