So Today I just received a newly refurbished Gaggia Classic from WholeLatteLove but the steam adjustment knob doesnt turn at all. Anyone ever experience this before? Im not going to try and repair it myself since i just bought it, but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything obvious.
The valve on my new machine was a bit stuck and let go with more pressure than I wanted. They get tested and water through the valve, then closed and dry, and they seem to stick. I would call WLL and agree to unstick it and keep it if ok, or return if a problem. For reference, I try to tighten with thumb and finger pressure, not full hand. Also, they will have an occasional drip and this usual. If a Gaggia does not drip, give it time and it will. It is likely fine :)
