Gaggia Classic - water coming out of steam wand when espresso button is pressed?
I was tinkering with my machine, put it back together but now when I hit the button for espresso, water comes out of the steam wand and nothing is coming out of the group head. When I hit the steam button then nothing happens.
Before I started I took a photo and I've confirmed 3 times that I've plugged in every wire exactly as it was when I began yet it's still not working.
Could anyone look at my wiring here and see if there's anything obvious that I'm missing?
Only thing that stop water going through the wand is the needle valve in the tap, nothing electrical. Make sure it's fully closed.
Possibly the black collar behind the steam knob has a stop on it that's not allowing the valve to fully close. From memory they don't have a stop on them but it's probably what I'd check first.
