Re: Gaggia Coffee

Hello, I have been experienceing the same problem since I bought this thing. I used to have the classic Gaggia until it died after 15 years. however, when I went to this one it just didn't function the same.I was having water leaks come from the group assy so I replaced the group valve assy which I saw a diffrence and it functioned properly for a few days, then It was acting up again. No steam to froth and water bypassing the group assy... I then removed the valve assy again and saw it was somewhat clogged of mineral deposits.I cleaned it and after a few days once again it wasn't frothing as it should. Yesterday I completely tore this thing apart but couldn't figure out how to remove the steam valve assy. Does anyone have any ideas?? I removed the 2 screws and it won't move. OH BEFORE I FORGET!!! It was working fine the other day and while I was in the middle of frothing, it suddenly went to half pressure.... ANY IDEAS?? Thank you in advance....

My Vienna plus espresso machine remains on will not power off unless I unplug it from the outlet.

You will need to have the on-off switch replaced or repaired, so check around and call a number of stores in your area who repair those kinds of machines, tell them your problem, and see if they'll give you an approximate cost to repair/replace the switch. It shouldn't be very much.

My saeco talea touch wont steam out of the wand, it makes the noise like it is steaming but the steam is coming out of the bean hopper and the grind tray area

Your delivery pipe has been disturbed at some point and has dislodged or blown out the O-ring seal, or maybe careless assembly of said pipe seal, if under warranty, take it back.

Gaggia accademia grinds too much

Make sure that your brew unit is clean and lubricated. The CPU on the machine uses the brew unit to calculate the amount of coffee it grinds. If the brew unit is dirty and hard to turn strange things will happen.

Gaggia unica will not prime

Same problem and I FIX it!
The problem was the flow meter (turbine) which can cause two problems:
  1. like your, poor water from steam.
  2. the machine always ask to prime
The first one is caused by limestone that blocks or partially blocks water entering the flow meter (it has a very small hole)
The second one by limestone that block the flow meter rotor
For both:
  1. Remove the flow meter block (with the whole Black block containing the pipe coming from water tank). You have to lift the black block from the back and pull.
  2. Separate the flow meter from the black block
  3. Disconnect the In and the Out pipes.
  4. When you have the flow meter in your hand (only the white piece), open it turning it's top (clockwise may be)
  5. Using a tooth brush clean well inside parts (top, base, red-rotor)
  6. Using a paper clip clean well both holes (in and out)
  7. Clean the o-ring
  8. When reassembling the flow meter pay attention to the o-ring between the top and the base which must be well fitted into it's seat before close it (if not, some air may come in the water circuit and the pump will not work).
The In and the Out pipes must be at 90 degrees when closed.
Before reconnect pipes, blow with your mouth into the In hole. You should hear the rotor rotating very well.
Hope this help

Steam wand on Vienna plus detached from arm

Lets first make sure you have all the parnello wand parts. The nut, hard plastic gasket, soft rubber gasket, the inner wand then the sleeve and the center in the sleeve. When putting it back together find the notch on the metal steam wand and slide the nut onto the wand, then add the rest in the order above.

How can I clean my Gaggia burr coffee grinder?

For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.
