Question about Gaggia Syncrony Espresso Machine

Open Question

My machine say's to ventilate after dispensing 1/2 cup.

I have a Gaggia Synchrony Espresso Machine and once the machine has dispensed half a cup of coffee it stops and the ventilate sign appears.

I ventilate, using the nozzle but no steam comes out nor does the ventilate sign disappear.

Once machine is switched off then on again I can go through the same cycle.

How do I fix this ?

It sounds like you need to program the coffee level.

Screen indicates to ventilate and won't allow any fuctions till ventilated. Have ran ventilate cycle several times, however machine still indicates to ventilate. Water flow is extremely low to nil when...


If you open the steam knob and only can get a half cup of water, then your flow meter in the machine have to be replaced.

If you need to replace the flow meter then it has spare part number: 286473300

Make sure to descale your machine often.

No cream on the espresso when dispensed

I was having this trouble with Lavazza beans and Morrisons (horrible) beans. I switched to Formula 6 from James' Gourmet Coffee on the internet and every cup has a great crema layer and good taste.
With the old beans I could get an occasional good cup, it seemed this was more of a problem if the machine had been switched on for a long time before making the cup. I use a Gaggia machine with a Gaggia MDF grinder on 8 or 9 setting, with the new beans I now get a great cup all the time so I'm going to try more the James' range!

Gaggia titanium dispenses different amounts of brew

First thing to you should try is descaling your machine if you haven't already. If descaling does not work then it might be some kind of leak issue.

You see, when leaks are present internally in the espresso machine it varies the amount of the cup, because a portion of the water which should have gone into your cup, has leaked into the machine.

It looks like your machine needs some service.

Ventilate problem


Can you make a cup of water or there will only comes a half cup?

If you only get a half cup then you have to replace the flow meter in the machine.
