    !!GONE!!: dead Gaggia Carezza

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive had this Gaggia Carezza sitting in my garage for more than a year since I bought my Silvia. It *is not working (part of my reason for buying the Silvia).

    When the pump motor started to get weak, I sent it in for repairs and it came back with much of the internal plumbing replaced and nothing done on the pump. Eventually the pump gave up the ghost (it smells as if it is about to emit blue smoke if you activate it, and doesnt pump).

    If you think you could use this for parts (or think it worth fixing) let me know. Happy to part with it for $50 or whatever you think its worth (I have the original box and can ship it though Im not sure it has enough value to justify that).

    I am happy to collect to use as parts for other CS as and if required..

    As to $$$ - old parts for CS members should be FREE :D I do not on sell or charge, but provide services free - where ever possible. This is in an effort to gain a better understanding of the units and the manufacture.

    Saterday at west end at Venezianos is a good location..

    Yea or Na its all teh same to me...

    I had a Carezza for about 5 yrs ago , i had it for about 3-4 yrs - it had the brew valve replaced twice and then just stopped working. I must admit - it did have a hard life - and some days i just plain forgot to turn it off .
    Great little machine when it was in service.

    oh I was going to put my hand up for the head... Just found out about naked heads, that and a grinder (angle) sounded a good match.

    No one esle seems to have a Carezza here... I love mine...could be a bit heavier though.

    distance is a wee bugger anyway though

    cheers

    Hi sparcs,

    I have and Carezza at work and I love it.
    I too want a filter holder and filters so I can return the borrowed ones that make me love it.
    AM has his mission amongst the heathens in that part of the country.
    Many of us have wants and no filter holders.

    Patience grasshopper.
    I too am a wanton

    Hi sparcs,

    My apologies for very sloppy use of the Queens E.
    I have modified my previous SA post to reflect your valid point.

    In future grasshopper will try to be patient and thoughtful
    thank you master

    Lindsay
