Gaggia Classic Replacement Pump
Today the pump in my my 14 year old Gaggia Classic fell silent during it's fourth continuous tank of descaling. No surprises, the fact it has been going for so many years is a testament to how solid these machines are. Only upon removing the pump did I see it labelled a 1 minute duty cycle; I guess I deserved that.
The pump I have removed is an Invensys 65W which doesn't seem to be easily attainable (some stock in UK), so I'm looking at the Fluid-o-tech 1106 70W or the Ulka EX5 45W. I'm leaning towards the 1106 just based upon the wattage and how sturdy it looks in photos. Does anyone have experience with any of these three pumps and their interchangeability?
Yours for the cost of postage,will confirm it works tomorrow.
Great stuff Mick...
Well,I can confirm the pump indeed works,even gave myself an unexpected shower in the process,great pressure outflow!
I received your PM stating the fuse was identified as OK,righto....... postage of pump will be next ,will need your address information (via pm).
Hi Mick, CS is telling me I can't send you any messages because your inbox is full. It appears I may have a cheap version of that pump. Where yours has a thermostat, mine has an empty mounting slot; same manufacturer though. I think I may have included my postal address in one of my earlier messages, just provide me with your paypal address.
