Question about Gaggia 16002 Espresso Machine
Gaggia 1600 - Pump continuously makes a loud noise. Water does not flow to brewing head. Steamer works fine for both steam and water. Has been cleaned regularly. Not quite 2 years old. I am about to toss it and go back to stovetop manual brewing
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!

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 email@example.com

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.

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.
