I had almost the exact same thing. The fuse for your frother is out. If both the frother and the brew head won't heat, then it is your Thermal Fuse. There are two different fuses inside the machine. Take the top off, and find both fuses. Take a piece of wire and connect it to each end of the fuse. Now turn the power on. If it heats, then that is the fuse. If no results, try the other fuse. Either fuse should be cheap. My thermal fuse was $1.98. Good luck!

SOURCE: gaggia syncrony compact is leaking. Removed top

Hi What color is the steam manifold? It is located under the black cover with the trough in back under the whit tube. If its whit or black it probably needs to be replaced. If you cool down the manifold after steaming you can prevent this from happening. Just turn off the steam and then open the knob again to run water. It comes out steam at first but then will turn to a water stream. Then you can close the knob and go about brewing or just let it stand.

SOURCE: water wont flow past brew head

Hi there, it sounds like your boiler may be full of scale. There is a copper tube which runs from the group up inside the boiler which can get clogged up quite easily. When you take the group apart you will see that when you remove the shower plate and unscrew the bolt in the middle the safety valve and spring will pop out and then if you get a pipe cleaner or something similar and ram it up through the copper pipe. If this does not work then you may have to dimantle the boiler and give it a good clean out. Also although you say the pump is primed it could still be broken. All these problems usually come from scale though. If you get some descaler and try to feed into the boiler by pumping or running water out the steam wand this may free it up. Any further assistance please get in touch with David at coffeeservice@live.com

SOURCE: no water coming through the head after prime etc

I have the same problem. I disassembled the unit body from the boiler. There was some scale, which I cleaned out. However, everything was flowing through the orifices with gravity -- no need to use a pipe cleaner because nothing is clogged.

So then I started tracing the flow of water. There is only one thing between the boiler and the shower head: the solenoid valve (in diagram ER0182 part # 27).

Sure enough, the solenoid valve will not accept water through the orifice that would route it to the shower head. Of course, this is with the solenoid unplugged and removed from the system. I soaked the orifice end of the solenoid valve in some decalcifiying solution in the hope that the solenoid piston may be jammed with a bit of scale.

Now I'm going to reassemble and hope for the best. However, my guess is that my solenoid valve needs to be replaced. Everything else is working (pump, valves, tubes, etc.).

I will report back.

Hi
Check the drain behind the brew unit. There is a pocket below the injector that can plug up and cause water to drain under the drip tray. Check this first. Stick you finger in the pocket and see if there is water in it. If there is, the drain below and to the right is plugged and just needs to be cleaned.

Testimonial: "Indeed, it appears the pocket below the injector was plugged. Was able to clear it and it now drains properly. thank you!"

Mr Coffee Pump Espresso machine not working. Lights alternately flash between coffee and steam icons, machine makes noise, but coffee does not brew, water does not flow, steam does not come out.


The espresso portion may be clogged with hard water deposits, and the steamer tube with casein. Run a tank of plain white vinegar a couple of times then run a couple of tanks of plain water to flush the vinegar, Open the steam valve while the espresso portion is running and set the steamer pot under the steamer. Don't be surprised if a long white tube of hard white material slides out of the steamer valve. That's the casein, actually a form of organic plastic.

Hi, That loud noise is the pump, pumping without water running through it. Thats not good. Will do expensive damage to whole machine if let go. It needs flowing water to stay operating for a good life. Already sounds like an ECU board. It may only be trying to rinse itself, but is cloged, and cant get enough water into it. It needs to be looked at by a repairer. I can helpyou there if you live on the sunshine coast. Dazza

Water for steamer but no water flows to make coffee


Remove the screw and shower screen under the brew head, make sure screen is clean, try running the head to see if water flows, if no water remove allen wrench screws, and check spring and valve seat, DO NOT LOSE SPRING AND VALVE. Try running head, if water does not flow, reassemble and descale machine.

The loud noise is coming from the vibrating water pump.
One posibility is that is full of scale or and dirt so you can try descale the machine.
Second is probably the water tank can fit corectly on the base and the valve on it does not open correctly or not at all so the pump it can not s**k water but air or a mix of them so we have the loud noise.
Finally you can remove the shower disk on the group head , locate above where you place the filter holder and clean it probably is full of dry coffee and block the water way out.
Please note that can be all above problem together.
Good luck

The brew head might be blocked, remove the scrfew and screen and clean the shower, before replacing them try turning machine on and running the head if water flows then screen needed to be cleaned if not then the blockage is higher in the machine and you will have to remove the 2 allen wrench screws to remove the diffuser and check the valve and spring in the head.

No water coming through brewing head


Hi there, I had a very similar problem with my Gaggia Classic. Worked fantastic every day for two years then one day the brew head was reduced to a very slow drip. I rang some Gaggia service agents and they all said it needs a service ($100-$150). The last one I called told me to descale it before bringing it in for a service as it was probably scale buildup. I told them it wasn't a gradual thing - it just suddenly stopped and they said what happens is the scale builds up to a point where a piece breaks off and clogs the pipeworks leading to the brewing head. So, I used the instructions outlined here: http://www.coffeemachine.com.au/descalin... At then end of the second flush through the steam head, I closed the steam vale to try and push the descaling solution back through the brew head (just dripped through again) then left it for 10 minutes again. Did the same the third time and it went to drip again for about five seconds then bingo - burst back to full flow. Hope this helps.
