    Posted by Richard Herklots on 24th Aug 2015

    New steam valve has fixed the issue with the leaking steam wand. Should also help to increase pressure of steam.

    Solves what seems to be common problem

    Posted by Craig on 14th Jun 2013

    Looks like I'm not the only one who had a cup under the steam wand... this solves the problem. It's a struggle to get the old one out, but once that's done the new one slots in quick and easy.

    Ordering and delivery was quick, efficient and painless, as it was with the knob that I broke in the process. D'oh.

    Recommended upgrade

    Posted by Vincent on 7th Feb 2013

    Fixed the leak I was having in my Gaggia Evolution. Also recommended for those who have Gaggias that have a self-prime valve and need to do the SPV mod/fix. This Classic valve doesn't have a SPV valve so problem solved!

    Fixed my dripping steam wand

    After~5 years (10 cups a week) the small amount of water coming from my wand was getting annoying. Was a relative simple fix (the old one needed some serious giggling to get out). quick deliv.ery
