Question about Gaggia 90901 Platinum Swing Up Automatic with Milk Island Platinum Espresso Machine
After cleaning the brew group I replaced it and started the machine. It spent some time in a cycle of "priming the water circuit". I've seen it do this before, and it resolved spontaneously on previous occasions. This time, after switching back on, it heats up, starts the rinse, then stops before any water has passed through the group and gives a "Brewing failed" message. It then self-tests and tries again, repaeating until I switch off. I've removed the group, lubricated it, checked it's moving properly, and I don't have any clue what to try next. Help, please!

You have got the gears out of alignment. You don't really want to take
out brew group unless at end of cycle. You can fool machine to get brew
group back in.
At times, the gears in the brew drive assembly will not complete the cycle to the proper
start position for different reasons. Some of the reasons are:
• Brew group jammed or blocked
• Either one of the micro switches in the brew drive have gone bad.
• Brew drive motor Failure.
• Broken teeth on either of the brew drive gears.
• Dirty brew group, covered by coffee grinds.
• Brew group or gears not lubricated.
• Connections to the board from brew drive assy., or motor have gone bad.
A jammed or blocked brew group happens when the brew group starts the cycle but doesn't finish it.
