Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Very slow water output

My machine is just a few months old but making a cup of coffee takes several minutes to drip out.  Not all the time but usually.  I can not figure this out I clean the darn thing all the time have put it through the cleaning cycle and it is good for a few cups then back to the drip drip drip.  Is this the norm for this make of machine.  I had a an older model different make before and it was wonderfully quick unitl the poor thing moved on.  Any ideas.?

Open door of machine & take Brew head out. You will see a cylinder shaped part which is black with an orange washer half-way down it. Look underneath this cylinder and you will see a steel disk,(which may look black) this is the filtre. Now look above the cylinder and you will see a turn knob, turn anti-clockwise untill the disk comes free. Hold the disk up to the light and you will see the minute perferations which are all clogged with coffee grounds, give this a thorough washing under running hot water ,( use the brush provided with your machine to push the grounds through. You will also need to blow through these holes very hard and often untill you can see that they are cleared. This should be done after about every 15 cups made. I got this info. from the Gaggia engineer and it works!! Good luck.

Very slow, 40 minutes to make 8 cups


Run a 50:50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar through the machine several times. Allow the mixture to cool off after each run and use a filter to catch the debris that comes out of the heater/pump. Run clean water several times to remove the vinegar taste. This works great on our old Mr Coffee and lasts for some time before doing it again. Hope this helps!

you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.

Mr Coffee doesn't brew


Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)

If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

Old message, you probably have had a few machines more by now.
If bnot, take it back; the bimetal thermal switch that is responsible for cycling the machine is 'bad.' Actually, it's Chinese and they haven't quite figured out how to make these reliable.
This type of switch has been around for 3/4 century and those made in the US were only used for protection and cycled only to prevent fire in some equipment. Because they are a sandwich of two metals, they flex to switch when their design temperature is reached. Just because of metal fatigue, they really aren't intended to switch off and on several times a minute as they must in a drip coffee maker.
