Question about Gaggia Syncrony Compact Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine
How can I test the thermostat. I tested resistance and it is zero at room temperature. If I heat is with a gas burner resistance remains zero until it clicks open and resistance is infinite. When removed from the burner the thermostat switch closes at ~276F (135 C) as measured with a infrared thermometer.
The problem is that the power supply wire to the heat exchanger is overheating and I am trying to isolate the source of the problem for possible repair.
I think you have get air in the system, try to find a bellows pump or similary. Fill it with water, open the steam knob and take of the water tank, put the pump in the water inlet and press. When the water begins to flow, close the steam knob and put the water tank back.

If it leaks from the steam wand then you need to get a new steam valve assembly. For the heat you will have to open the machine it is possible that the steam boiler is damaged or that the thermostat on there is bad, use an ohmsmeter to check thermostats and element. There are 2 screws in the grinder, 2 behind the water tank and about 2 or 3 in the front behind the door.

It sounds like you need to program the coffee level.
Have a look on this page for the instruction manual.

You could have a micro switch in the doser that is going bad and needs to be replaced. They are a special micro switch that is very sensitive and can get stuck with a little coffee dust inside the switch.
