SOURCE: same problem with my classic gaggia.

Hi Marc

Just bought one this week with exactly the same problem. As a last resort I opened it up to find the pump had come off the rubber support kinking the pipes beneath so no water could get in.

Undo the 2 philips screws on the top, take off the lid and water filler spout and take look. Looking down from the front of the machine, the pump is at the back to the left. If it's just floating in space as mine was, simply push it gently back into the rubber support beneath making sure you don't kink the pipes.

Mine came by DHL from Italy with no right side up marked on the box, so no wonder it came loose!

Hope this fixes it.

Matt

The in formation on this page is for use of technicians and experienced persons. All others do so at their own risk.

Traditional Home Espresso Machines Have the Following Parts:
1. A brass or aluminum boiler (16 to 40 oz. capacity).
2. A boiler outlet valve to help increase the pressure of water, before it is pumped through coffee grounds.
3. An oscillating pump with or without external thermostat.
4. A steam valve with a knob to open & close steam/hot water outlet.
5. Thermostat to limit temperature of water or steam.
Limit for espresso water temperature: 90°C to 98°C
Limit for steam temperature: between 127°C to 152°C.
6. A thermofuse to shut power supply when temperature in the boiler exceeds the higher limit (usually 185°C).
7. Solenoid valve (selected Gaggia models only).
8. A filter cup holder handle to place ground coffee for extraction of espresso.
The pump models generally are easy to open. In most brands, the top cover is fixed with two to four screws. In the Barista/Rio Vapore models, the top cover curves around to the back and the top has two screws. The front end has about 1/3" 90 degree fold. This folded lip is wedged between two plates. It may be necessary to use a long screw driver or other rod, pushed under the top cover, alternatively on either side of the machine to nudge the cover free and lift up. Note the slide along the left side in the picture below. Once the top cover is taken off, the entire internal set up can be viewed. The pictures below show two popular models:
1. Gaggia Model Espresso (without solenoid valve)
2. Saeco Espresso Classico (rapid steam model)

Gaggia Classic (3 months old). Suddenly there is steam only, no water flow.


If there is no water from the head then remove the screw and screen, then press brew button, if water flows clean shower, using a pair of plies hold screen over open flame, coffee will burn out of the small holes. If no water after trying above then remove the 2 allen wrench screws and carefully remove the diffuser and seat with spring, now try running the head, if water flows reassemble and you are back in busines, if no water descale machine.

Steam comes out strong for 25 seconds, then almost completely stops and water dribbles from the steam tube, then strong steam for 25 seconds, then it stops and dribbles for 25 seconds, then strong steam,...


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.

No water coming out


Sounds like the gaskets need replacing.
A faulty steam solenoid can cause no water from the group head too

Gaggia classic espresso machine doesn't pour water but the water pump seems to work fine.


Don't be annoyed, but the first thing is to eliminate possible obvious reasons.

First -- Do you have the water reservoir filled?

Second -- Is the Steam Toggle (the middle black button) turned on? If so, that's the problem. Turn it off, then turn on the far right button -- the machine should purge steam from the group head which will turn to water quickly.

Third -- do you have a blind filter in the portafilter? That is, is there anything other than the filter basket inside the portafilter handle?

Can you get water to come out of the steam handle? To do this, open the steam valve (the round knob on the side of the machine) by turning it toward you. Then, turn on the machine using the third black button. You should hear the pump running and water should flow through the steam wand. If it doesn't, my guess is that the pump is shot.

There is not an awful lot involved in engineering terms in the system, so if water is not coming out at all after trying all of these things, you're going to have to have it serviced by someoe who can actually address the pump issue. This can be done at home, but if it's under warranty I wouldn't hassle with it.

Gaggia espresso machine won't percolate


Does the steam outlet give water when coffee swith is engaged. If so when you get a flow going, shut the steam valve and water should eventually pout in the cup. If no water pours thru the steam pipe, it's pump failure or blocked wand. If no water at shower depending on last result same problems. Search web for solution i.e. google "jammed espresso machine"

Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine - will not pump water


Hi, this is so easy to fix. Firtsly unplug the machine. Then remove the two screws in the top plate so that you can have access to the internals of the machine. You will see the red pump to the left hand side at the back. Remove the two screws that hold the pump in place (use a magnetic screwdriver so that you can pull the screws out). Pull the pump up towards you and then unscrew the thin plastic pipe at the top of the pump . It is the pump that has the scale build up problem. If you the put the water tubes into the water tank and hold a cup to the top of the pump to catch the water you then have to switch the pump on. You will then start to see lots of scale come out of it and the pump will pump more water than you are expecting so be careful. Be sure to cover the internals of the machine whilst you are doing this as you don't want to get water on the electrics and electricute yourself!!! Then rebuild it! Just svaed yourself £100 in having it serviced :-)
