Question about Gaggia Syncrony Compact Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

No steam when valve opened, spits out water in the beginning of frothing

I have been using my Gaggia Compact Digital for about 2 years and it worked well until now. The frothing suddenly stopped working. When turning the valve open it "spits out" the water but then it sounds like it is pumping inside, however, no steam and only a little water comes out. What can be do to fix it? This happened overnight because it frothed the milk just fine the other night.

There is a small teflon piece on the inside of the steam tube, you will have to disassemble the frother to get to it. Remove this piece. Reassemble and the wand should work fine.

Hi My gaggia titanium is not frothing milk correctly. I've descents but that has still not solved the problem It's sounds like it's spitting Thanks


Try this remove the parnello wand and open the valve if you get a nice burst of steam then the problem is in the parnello wand, if you get the same spitting, then there is something in the valve or the steam boiler that is preventing the proper flow of steam.

The steam valve has been leaking on the inside for awhile, the steam condensed on the display board. You will have to replace the steam valve assembly and maybe the display board.

If it leaks from the steam wand then you need to get a new steam valve assembly. For the heat you will have to open the machine it is possible that the steam boiler is damaged or that the thermostat on there is bad, use an ohmsmeter to check thermostats and element. There are 2 screws in the grinder, 2 behind the water tank and about 2 or 3 in the front behind the door.

Water is leaking, while the machine heats water for steaming


The steam valve tap rod needs to be replaced, or check machine if it has a plastic steam valve, Gaggia designed a new Stainless steel steam valve for the compact machine.

Steam wand works, but no water for espresso


I have found that I have to remove the group valve assembly about once every 1 or 2 months to clean out the .030" to .040" opening in the valve body. The manual gives instructions on how to do this. It becomes clogged with a thick paste like substance.

Gaggia Synchrony Compact Digital Problem


Hi,

I think you have get air in the system, try to find a bellows pump or similary. Fill it with water, open the steam knob and take of the water tank, put the pump in the water inlet and press. When the water begins to flow, close the steam knob and put the water tank back.

Best regards

Gaggia Coffee


Hello, I have been experienceing the same problem since I bought this thing. I used to have the classic Gaggia until it died after 15 years. however, when I went to this one it just didn't function the same.I was having water leaks come from the group assy so I replaced the group valve assy which I saw a diffrence and it functioned properly for a few days, then It was acting up again. No steam to froth and water bypassing the group assy... I then removed the valve assy again and saw it was somewhat clogged of mineral deposits.I cleaned it and after a few days once again it wasn't frothing as it should. Yesterday I completely tore this thing apart but couldn't figure out how to remove the steam valve assy. Does anyone have any ideas?? I removed the 2 screws and it won't move. OH BEFORE I FORGET!!! It was working fine the other day and while I was in the middle of frothing, it suddenly went to half pressure.... ANY IDEAS?? Thank you in advance....
