Hey folks, im new to this forum-just discovered it while looking for info online. Ive got one of these machines    "Help please - what's this unidentified cheap Gaggia machine?"

I want to give it a good clean etc.. ive looked at some threads on the forum regarding cleaning the head etc and this looks fairly straightforward.. but i cant seem to find a howto for cleaning the water suction pipes.. could someone point me in the right direction..  

many thanks

The thread you linked us to indicated that that was a Gaggia Coffee Deluxe.
I'm not sure those hoses lend themselves to "cleaning", but...

You can find replacement silicone hose here:

Put the title of the machine Gaggia "Selecta Deluxe" in the title but keep it short and you will get better help faster.

I stand corrected.  I am sure I read something about aluminium and descaling.

Citric Acid is a perfectly fine descaler for his machine, as it is for all Gaggias.
2 Tbs/quart warm water....
