    Hi, I also got this espresso machine for Christmas and although I am following instructions, I cannot get hot water! The instructions come in 3 languages, but at least in English and Spanish, the instructions differ.

    I turn on the machine, wait until the hot water/steam green light comes on, turn the knob to that possition, move the steam knob counter clockwise, and I get a little water and steam from the frother, and not a single drop from the boiler outlet. Can anybody help?

    Same problem: A new Gaggia Espresso Dose machine in my office. Resevoir full, power on...no hot water, no steam, nothing. The instruction book says an air bubble may form, open the hot water valve and water should flow from steam wand. No dice.

    Any ideas?

First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)

I have had this same problem - it is due to an airlock in the boiler/tubes. Simple solution is to use a syringe or similar and gently force some water up the intake hose from the tank, then try the pump again.

Hi,

I think you have to go to a Saeco service center to look on it, it can be a sensor that is faulty.

SOURCE: PROBLEM WITH LOW FLOW/PRESSURE IN GAGGIA COFFEE DELUX COFFEE MAKER

the most likely reason for poor flow through the brewhead is a blockage in the outlet valve.the outlet valve is behind the shower disc holding plate and can be removed with 13mm socket. a straightened paper clip needs to be insrted in the outlet to clear any internal blockage,then pump water through. if the outlet valve splits in two ensure the rubber bung is inserted upwards.once refitted all should be fine

From what you have asked the only thing I can suggest is that the pump needs to be replaced. Do you hear the pump vibrating? The lines from the pump may be blocked. Have you tried to descale the machine.

I have the same problem as well, talked to a repair shop and it's definitely a "send in" or warranty repair. I was told it's an o-ring issue. I have no water coming out of the steam wand and it goes into the dispense tray instead.

Try filling both water and the milk container with the correct decalcifying solution - just slit the 500 ml that results from the 1:1 mixture and - without the coffee capsule - press the cappucino button. Instead of cappucino you will get the decalcifying solution running through the entire system including the connector for the milk container (unlike the recommended decalcification method where you use the extra nozzle). Good luck - worked for my machine which only produced steam but no milkfoam...

First thing I would check is the end of the steam wand to make sure it is not blocked. Then if you are getting hot water for making espresso, I would remove the top cover and check the topmost thermostat.

First check the nozzle at the end of the steam wand, if you have hot water for coffee then you should have something coming out of the steam wand. If the wand is not blocked and the pressure is low then the thermostat might need to be replaced.

My Tasssimo coffee maker is 11 months old and isnt functioning.


Possibly all you need is to clean off the bar code reader window. It's right under where the bar code on the t-disc ends up. A little dried milk, etc., can cause your symptom.

STEAM PROBLEM


Does the steam itself smell, or just the milk. If yes on the steam run the descale again. If no on steam then check the perfect cream wand the black plastic arm connected to the steam wand, dissamble and clean, make sure all the holes are clear.
