Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

Machine won't power up after 3 days holiday!

Hi. I've had my Titanium for 2 faultless years. I powered off the machine using the mains switch for a three day holiday and when on my return switched on again the machine started in 'Energy Saving' mode and would not respond to the menu/OK button. So I powered off again and the problem is worse - just a row of lit squares in the display, and completely unresponsive to any button combination I've tried. Does anyone know of a factory reset? Any ideas?

    need to know if there is a factory reset

    Same issue except I've seen this before a week ago. Appears to be a power supply issue, I'm guessing capacitors have dried out in power unit. Will investigate if I get chance ...

    Same MO, display flickers and machine unresponsive when switched on. Flickered and tried to do it's "self test" failed and display eventually flickered and faded to appear off.

This problem seems to be more electrical device failure as opposed to micro controller confusion. I would look for a failed power supply component, possibly an overheated resistor that has changed value and caused power loss. Look for a browned-out area on a circuit board.

    I have the same problem with the LCD showing Energy saving only, I push the menu button it jumps to self test then straight back to Energy Saving. I've opened the machine up, looked everywhere for a sign of overheating. It all looked good. I found some soot on a wire and followed it only to find the connections where clean. Anyone know how to reset the unit?

    I have exactly the same problem now after powering the machine off for three days away. Did you get any solution to your case?

Why wont it switch on?

Check the 2-pole circuit breaker on the left side. You have to remove the back by removing 2 screws. Use a multimeter, test for continuity over both poles.

My ~8 year old Gaggia Titanium Plus was dead one morning.
I checked the circuit breaker and one of the two poles were bad.
I replaced the C.B. and all was fine :-)

Hi...Grinder blocked message is ..when you make coffee there is no current going into the grinder. In other words the grinder motor is blown(coil windings in the motor is blown). You have to replace the motor. The problem is common with Gaggia, Talea, Odea coffee machines. hope your machine is less than 2 years old to get fix under warranty.

I just bought a Janome 9700 and I was wondering what kind of needles work best. I have hear that the Organ Titanium are really good. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

I've been sewing for over 30 years, I used organ needle before, but not the organ titanium, you said you just bought the machine, did it come with a instruction manual? if it did then it should tell which needle to use.
I have 2 necchi sewing machine & one babylock serger & I use SCHMETZ universal needle on all my machine, I never had any problems sewing with them, I make clothes & quilts & even upholstery some.
happy sewing

I have never heard of Eagle Fishfinders, but I would be inclined to package it up and send it back to them for checking under warranty, with a fault that should never happen. The brand leaders are Lowrance and Humminbird, with Garmin in 3rd place.

I have a Humminbird 998HD with Side Imaging. I had a 798SI before that and never a problem. the 998 cost me nearly 2 grand Canadian and is used on Lake Ontario, twice a week every week from May to October, and has been faultless. The 798 was used from 2008 to 2014 and also faultless. I think you have a 'Friday Special'.

Re holidays accrued.

Your 28 days holiday is free holidays (assuming you have not including predetermined holidays - i.e public holidays)

28 days divide by 12 months = 2.333 days

Your holiday year cannot be April to April as this is 13 months - so I have assumed it is April to March, or it could be May to April - This will affect how many holidays you have earnt upto August.

Multliply the 2.33 days per month by the number of months until your holiday in August. The calculation your employer is using may take into account you have to earn full days by the end of the month before you take a holiday.

2.33 days X 4 months to end of July = 9 days
2.33 days X 5 months to end of August - 11 days.

You may have to exclude the public holidays if this is included in your annual allowance

I think you are on the right track. Possibly read some specs on what wire you should be using. I've never had to remove or reinsulate data wire but am well aware of how sensitive "data" wires can be.

Goodmans freeview box gd2

Hi. I have never worked on this box but if it went faulty after power cut chances are that some of the electrolytic capacitors in the psu (power supply) require changing. Look for any that look like they have got hot are bulging or have a dark stain around them.
