Thanks for your answer. I will order this part and get back to you once it's been received. I think I may be able to source it in the UK from www.gaggia-parts.co.uk

Hi Michael,
I phoned the UK people and they told me that the problem was definitely NOT the part you specified, so it's a very good job that I didn't waste money and time ordering it from the U.S. They did tell me the action to take to rectify the problem and now the machine is working fine. I would appreciate a refund of my money and if I get that I'll leave the good rating that I left you earlier.
Many thanks,
Sue

It was just a question of re-priming the brew unit.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Hi awesome!Most times that doesnt work or if it does, it seems to lose prime due to a tiny air leak in that part of the system. Let me know if the problem returnsIf nit then your good ;-) Tech Michael
