Re: gaggia repair? update

I was having the problem with the pump, what I did was to take the pump
out, use an air compressor, blow a very strong air flow (as strong as I
can have) from the water intake end until I feel the air comming out to
the other end, put the pump back, and it works...that saved me $50 pump
for $100 machine.
