  • Gaggia Classic delivery spout not aligning properly

    Hi - I hope someone can help with this. In all the pics of my machine, the delivery spout (butterfly nut shaped piece that pours the coffee) is symetrically shown with the 'wings' going left and right so one can put two cups on the tray underneath the spout.

    But on my machine, when the spout (butterfly nut) is screwed tight - it's almost 90 degrees out of wack - with the 'wings' going front to back...so no way to put two cups underneath.

    Is this common? Is there a fix?

    Of have I bought a dud?

    Thank you

    You can loosen it and align it correctly.. Cover the spout with cloth and use a vice or spanner if really tight.

      If you need to loosen it by 90°, I'd suggest some teflon tape to hold it snug (ie plumber's tape on the threads before screwing the spoutset back on.)

        What position is the portafilter handle once locked in ?

        Should be somewhere around the 5-6 oclock position.
