Hi, what damage can be done to a gaggia classic while backflushing?

It is not really recommended for all Gaggias only those with a three way solenoid. If you don't have one don't do this. If you have any of the Baby series or the classic you can. If you do not do the back flushing correctly you can basically ruin your machine by damaging the water connections in your machine by getting to much pressure. It can be done but make sure you know exactly how to backflush. Here is a good start - http://www.wholelattelove.com/articles/backflushing_an_espresso_machine.cfm
