    Gaggia classic water diversion?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey! I got a problem with my 4 months gaggia. This morning when I backflushed my gaggia with water, I realized the water keep flowing through the outlet tube when I turn on the brew button. Even when I didn't use the blind filter basket, the water still flows through both group head and the outlet tube. Is it possible the 3 way valve is leaking? Or any other reason?

    Sounds like the three way solenoid to me...

    You can try descaling or manually cleaning it before replacing.

    yeap i just descaled it, but nothing change. It stills under warranty so I think i should ask them to replace it for me. Or Is it quite easy to change the solenoid valve?

    If it's under warranty, take it to the retailer. No sense playing guessing games or buying parts if it's covered.

    Easily changed, but about sixty bucks iirc
