Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Cappuccinatore doesn't ****

Our cappuccinatore isn't sucking up any milk. Plenty of steam comes out, but it's also getting blown out of the tube the milk is supposed to be sucked up into. It was fine the first couple of times we used it, but we can't get it to work now.

    Taking it apart again was a good idea. Comparing it to an exploded diagram of the cappuccinatore showed we had an extra washer/ring in the end that fits onto the machine. Don't know where that came from, but without it the cappuccinatore seems to work just fine.

Did you clean it, gets clogged with hardened milk fat quite easily. Dismantle and wash, run hot tap water through or blow into flexible hose if you're still not getting any flow, then reassemble.

Lifting the small black plug (air intake) and raising the reservoir of milk can help to get the flow going.

No Cappuccinatore or Steam and Loud Bang!


The steam is ariving to the steam wand with a thin teflon pipe which is conected to a easy clip on union. So probably by the presure of the steam in the pipe since the capucinatote was gogled the pipe have been came out from the union so the steam is leaking in the machine. Be carefull not work the steam since the water in the machine can make an electrical short and damage the machine completly. Now in order to fix the problem first you must remove the top and side panel in order to connect back the steam pipe to the wand union and second to clean the capucinatore by complitly desasemble it put it in special detergent and leave it fro some our so any dirt will be removed more easily and by a good visual inspection you can see that all holes are cleaned from any dry milk.

How can I make the milk hotter using the cappuccinator?


Yes you can make a small trick for that. You can use a sqweeter on the milk silicone hose so the milk can flow with more dificalty as long as you can see milk flowing this can be up to 78 C . You should keep the cappuccinatore very clean since you will need the steam to come as easy as possible

Cappuccinatore does not draw milk


Hi
There should be a little knob on top of the cappuccinatore. It is what causes the milk to flow up the tube. When it is steaming, rotate the knob slowly until the milk starts to flow up the tube. You can fine tune the knob to get the best foam.
If you are missing the pin that has the knob on it, there will be a small hole in the outside top of the cappuccinatore. If you don't have hole and a knob, it is broken off and you need to replace the cappuccinatore

Cappuccinatore Milk Temperature on Saeco Royal Pro Machine


Hi

First open it up and run it without any milk attached until just mostly steam is coming thru. Turn off - then drop the tube into a jug of milk which is locted below the outlet. If its steaming, the milk will be heated up ok - it may need flow adjusting - lift the thin 'plug' near the tube up and down to adjust flow. You can add to the froth by lifting the tube out of the milk for a moment then back in again a few times.

To clean the unit just run clean water tru as tho it was milk until it comes out totally clear (about 1/4 cup). For hygiene sake make sure the tube is wiped clean on the outside with a clean paper each and every time when finished.
You can flush your main coffee lines out by making out its doing a large preground coffee - but don't put any preground in.

Select preground - select large coffee and go. Pays also to remove the brew unit and wash in warm water once a week - saves coffee goo building up and causing it to stick.

Saeco cappuccinatore not taking milk, instead blowing some steam into milk


Try this, the valve diagram shows that you twist the knob, but you left it up and down to adjust the flow. You could also check that the container you have the milk in, is lower in height than the cappuccinatore to help it siffin the milk up from its container. Make sure the cappuccinatore is fitted correctly pushed in fully and half fill a cup with milk and pull the valve adjuster up a small amount and push the button. It should start pushing steam out the cappuccinatore and then within a few seconds it should start siffining milk up the tube.
