SOURCE: Gaggia Titanium integrated grinder not spinning, not grinding.

your grinding chamber is blocked, the same happened to me, did it struggle to grind before? try taking the black shoot out the top with the 2 screws( were you would put pre ground coffee in) take the brew unit out(along with the waste water and bean tray), and reach up to where there is a little spring, the spring controls a little door, if you open the door manually and clean out the shoot to the grinder( make sure the machine is unplugged for this), i used the end of a tea spoon and a little hoover. it should work after this

SOURCE: Gaggia baby espresso machine-Steam button is stuck

The only thing that comes to mind is that the machine is in steam/hot water mode. Unless you replace the switch and turn off the steam light so that it sends the water to the correct location. Also you might want to remove the shower screen and make sure it is clean.

Sometimes if you, turn the machine on without the unit in place it will reset itself, and if on the brew unit the arrow is pointing to the N, then you should be fine, however if the arrow is doing its thing and the gears do not line up then you might have to take it in to get it reprogrammed.

SOURCE: My gaggia titanium says it's brew unit is blocked

Try cleaning and relubing the brew unit.
If that fails you require a new main board.

Hi
Check the drain behind the brew unit. There is a pocket below the injector that can plug up and cause water to drain under the drip tray. Check this first. Stick you finger in the pocket and see if there is water in it. If there is, the drain below and to the right is plugged and just needs to be cleaned.

Testimonial: "Indeed, it appears the pocket below the injector was plugged. Was able to clear it and it now drains properly. thank you!"

Why are my coffee pucks (dregs) coming out unformed and very wet


Bad grind, worn burrs in grinder (so a mixture of coffee particle sizes); not enough ground coffee for the size of filter basket.

- Adjust grinder so your brew time is in the 20-25seconds window, then take it from there.

We have a Gaggia Syncrony Logic that is just over two years old. After each brew cycle, the puck is successfully ejected but water and some grounds flow out under the drip tray instead of into it....

Gaggia syncrony logic not dispensing water. Just drops pods and red light comes on. have cleaned brew unit shower screen and dispenser tube. still have the problem


Lubricate the brew unit with a food safe grease this should help.
The brew unit becomes stiff and fail to load up fully this stops the water being dispensed

Why are my ejected coffee pucks very wet? Seems


You need to be sure the removeable grinding surface is clean and not clogged. If it is not clean, water has problems passing through the screen and the water cannot escape, staying in the puck...

Are you tamping the coffee at all?

The ground coffee needs to be compressed, using a tamper, to form a hard puck that the water will then get squeezed through.

This has already happened to the ese pods so needs to be replicated in the portafilter when you place freshly ground coffee into it.

The plastic tampers provided with your machine are not fit for purpose and a metal tamper is highly recommended. The base of the tamper should be 58mm
