Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

We have our Gaggia nearly 3 years and never had problems, untill last week,after starting up the machine, the light was going out,not possible to start the machine and send it back to the shop, after a few weeks we got the message that the module, valve and piston must be renewed for about 300Euro! We never had any trouble at all, after 1500 cups its to soon.For that amount of money we'll have almost a new one, but a new Gaggia?

If 300 Euros is 50% or more of the cost of a new machine, replace it.

SOURCE: coffee takes 10 minutes to fill cup and very noisy - Classic

Hi there,
The most common problem with these machines is scale. Using a good descaler to start with may help but may not always solve the problem. If your machine is noisy it is the pump which may need replacing. If you open the steam valve when making the coffee it will shift any air lock. Out with that you may have to remove the shower plate underneath where the coffee handle goes and give it a good clean. Also there is a safety valve inside the group head which may be clogged up. I am a domestic coffee machine engineer based in glasgow and have machines sent to me from all over the UK. It is hard to eally fix problems without actually seeing the machine as it could really be anything. Boilers are small so tend to fill with scale and ****. go to www.theespressoshop.co.uk if you require any more assistance.

Kind Regards

No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the water was coming out very slowly, in drips. The doser or grind were not the problem, because even when I switched to Hot Water, it was still dripping. ...


Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

The led 27 flashing no stop


Hi
If you are talking about the descale light, you must let the machine quit on its own. The pump has to stop on its own. Any interruption (you stopping the machine) will keep it in the descale mode. Once it stops on its own, the lights will change. Then do the rinse by replacing the water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob and again letting the machine quit on its own. Again the lights will change. Then repeat the last cycle (putting water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob)until all the red lights go away and you only have a green blinking light. Now your finished descaling a compact without a digital display.

hi there! Try to use a filter for your water (and not tap water)! Here in France we call it a Brita! it filters out scale and other unwanted substances! And if possible do not use vinegar to clean your Gaggia but a professional cleaner/de-scaler! go to joegloe homepage!

Gaggia titanium leaking underneath


Andy15 - Thanks - you encouraged me to do this myself.   I made a video as I did my repair.  The video making was more work than the replacement of the steam valvle.   Please check out my video if you have have to make the same repair.   Also - the technical support from WholeLatteLove was great.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UgVBoFd5aE

Gaggia titanium leaking water underneath


i had this same problem. the solution is simple if you are a little bit handy.
there is a bad valve inside. i called Whole Latte Love where i bought the machine and ordered a Steam Valve complete - Compact Frame
its part number GA-%0345.R and two O-Rings

the valve that comes with the machine is plastic and the new one is a brushed metal casing. my guess it will last for 10 years!

two screws on the back and the machine is open
near the front, by the steam wand, with a hose attached coming from the heater, is the valve, attached to the knob on the side
two more screws and the valve wrapped in a plastic housing comes out.
open the plastic housing, remove the insulated hose to the steam wand and the water/steam plastic hose that comes in. replace the valve, hook up the two hoses, but back in housing and you're done. attach back to knob on the outside, put back together and in 30 minutes, the Titanium is like new. no leaks.

it sounds daunting but is pretty easy and beats sending the machine back for repair. i can't go a morning let alone a month without coffee from my Gaggia. once repaired, the coffee is hotter too.

Little pressure


Have you been descaling your machine? If not, there you go, the calcium buildup is clogging your group head. It might be too late depending on how much buildup there is. Try descaling first and see how that works out. Then descale one a month for three months then go on to the normal cleaning schedule of every 2-3 months.
