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?

Re: Machine won't power up after 3 days holiday!

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.

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 :-)

I had a similar problem and it was fixed by re-setting the two thermal breakers attached to the main boiler (you need to disassemble the machine to reach them)

Coffee bean light won't go out when full and coffee won't work

Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think
After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly
Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best.

Does the gaggia titanium have a grinder sensor? Can anybody tell me where it is? I have the "grinder blocked" message. I've cleaned the grinder, Shute and doser door, but I still have the...

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.

Hi there, I just purchased a Jura S9 One Touch. I've used it for a week, maybe making 10 coffees/day. Just yesterday an ERROR 6 message popped up. I don't know what to do, please help?

Hi, Error 6. Haven't come accross that one before. It sounds like brew unit problem.I do know error 7&8 are brew unit problems and 1 to 5 are water flow and heating errors. Try turning off the machine at the main power button and unplug it from the wall for a few minutes. This will reset the machine and right it self. They can do this from time to time. Dazza

Dregdrawer Full

I read somewhere that there is a counter in the machine that when a certain amount of shots are done, the counter will reach its limit and tell you to empty the drawer, even if it's not full.

When I get the message I open the door, remove the drawer and it goes away once you replace it. Don't know why the machine would stop working though?

Check the thermostats on the steam boiler, one of them is not working, also check the main board for damage, if the pump is not pulsing when you are steaming.
