Pump leaking from plastic
« on: December 24, 2017, 04:07:57 PM »
I have an older Gaggia Classic.  We just replaced the pump, as it totally stopped working.  The brand new pump fixed that problem, but there is dripping from the plastic 'housing' at the high pressure end.

Any ideas as to how to fix it?  I have attached a diagram as to where it is leaking from.

Thanks - and a merry Christmas to all.

"brand new" + "leaking" = return it.

Thanks for the fast response!  We are going to Vancouver for New Year's at our daughter's, so can return it then.

Glad I have an extra machine. ... otherwise, I would be very sad over the Christmas holidays.
