Gaggia Synchrony Compact heat exchanger thermostat

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.

Hi,

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.

Hi
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.

My Gaggia Synchrony is leaking - If I remove the water catch basis, I can see a drip. We have used this machine every day for years - can the problem be fixed easily?


HI
There is a panel behind the brew unit, that has 2 screws. Remove it and clean the coffee residue behind it. That is what drains the pressure relieved after brewing, and has coffee residue that can build up and cause the leak. It should leak into the drip tray though, except when you rremove it.

I was descaling my machine (gaggia synchrony- 3 years old). After it ran thru the first cycle & I refilled it I can't get it to heat up again & it shows a light indicating there's no water- when...


Make sure that the sensor in the water tank has not stuck IIRC it's on the right hand side as you look at the machine from the front. Then run some water through the steam nozzle, it could just be that following the descale there is no water in the boiler and you just need to fill it as you did when it was new.
Hope this helps.

The water temperature is only at 160 F. from the portafilter. What to do about this if 190 F is optimal?


Make sure portafilter is warmed up before checking or check without portafilter, descale boiler, and check to make sure thermostat and element is working properly, do a resistance test.
