Posted Sun Apr 22, 2012, 7:12am Subject: Gaggia Classic Temperature Question
My Classic is about two years old. Recently the second pull bubbles through as if the coffee was not tamped and the coffee has a "burnt" smell to it. I suspect the thermostat is kaput. I have never back-flushed but I clean & descale once a month using Cleancaf so I don't think I've any flow-through problems.
So two questions: Does the above symptom indicate a bad thermostat? And if yes, what site should I go to to get a replacement?

Thanks for the advice. The reason I think it might be the stat is that the temp seems to increase the longer the unit is on. By the time I make the first two Cappuccinos I can hear the water bubbling in the machine. I will go to the links you provided and after I will get back to you with the outcomes.
