Question about Gaggia Unica Bean To Cup Coffee Machine

Open Question

Machine turns on, warms up but will not dispense coffee

This happens intermittently. The brew group is clean, greased and I have descaled the machine it just seems as if something is not working in the brew group. If I just take the brew group in and out, work the mechanism by hand several times then eventually it rights itself but I have no idea what I've done to fix it. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Gaggia Titanium integrated grinder not spinning, not grinding.

your grinding chamber is blocked, the same happened to me, did it struggle to grind before? try taking the black shoot out the top with the 2 screws( were you would put pre ground coffee in) take the brew unit out(along with the waste water and bean tray), and reach up to where there is a little spring, the spring controls a little door, if you open the door manually and clean out the shoot to the grinder( make sure the machine is unplugged for this), i used the end of a tea spoon and a little hoover. it should work after this

SOURCE: I cannot get the brew group out to clean in my

Check the position of the gear if the small arrow is not matching with the N this mean that you have a mechanical gear problem and need to desasembe the machine in order to find the broken part. If the arrow mutch with N the the problem is due to coffee that dry out and the group is only stuck in, by a little force and a slight movements left and right you can easily unstuck and you can clean it with running hot water under tap. The problem it can also by a brocken lock lever so when you press the level by your hand this is broken and can not unlock the group so you can remove it out. You can try to use a long screwdriver to unlock it so it can then remove it.
Good Luck

I cleaned my Jura Capresso with a tablet, but the message "Clean Machine/Ready" won't switch back to "Ready". Any suggestions?


Fortunately the problem you describe is not model specific. All Jura machines in the series C, E, F, J, S & Z models have the same problem. The Jura recommended maintenance is insufficient or erroneous. Here is how it occurs:
1- When new machine is set up, the instructions advice the owner to set up OK for use of Filter cartridges. This set helps only to display reminders for replacing the filter.
2- The initial set up instruction also advises that with regular use of Filter, descaling the machine will not be needed. That is really not accurate. Consequently, the reminders for descaling are delayed for over one year or more. This causes serious consequence with accumulation of Calcium deposits in the entire hydraulic and coffee system.
3- Use of Filters alone does not prevent Calcium deposits. Cleaning tables recommended & sold by Jura do not remove Calcium deposits in the coffee/water passages. The automatic descaling method recommended by Jura leaves the coffee side of the machine unclean. The error message in your machine is due to Calcium deposits in the Brew group, coffee outlet & the faucet dispensing coffee in the cup. I suggest all Jura machine owners should manually descale machine. Manually descaling includes use of 6 to 10 rinse cycles with descaling solution in the water tank. The error message "Clean Machine" is accurate. This error message is pointing to descale the Brew group, coffee outlet tube and coffee dispensing faucet by using rinse cycles.

After the rinse cycles are complete, refill Descaling solution in the water tank & continue descaling the rest of the machine by using hot water dispensing function, ½ cup at a time until the tank is empty. Finally, give a final flushing of machine to flush out remaining descaling solution inside the machine.

While performing the descaling the brew group gets stuck


Have you check if the knob on the top of the machine to distribute hot water is fully closed. If on the edge, you may not get hot water flowing but the light may be on.

Look on page 12 of the manual. It explain the the meaning of the led flashing or stayed on from the control panel

Good luck

Sounds like the the shower screen under the red o-ring in the brew group needs to be cleaned, you can remove the screen and clean or you can purchase some espresso machine soap puro caff or puly caff, and run it through the brew group using the preground method the clean out coffee oils.

Make sure the components are in
the correct position.
The hook shown must be in the

Steam comes from wand when set to dispense water.


Check the connection to the boiler from the pump, there is no water going to the boiler. Try this test, remove the brew unit you will see a white plastic valve behind it, carefully lift the small lever on the valve(HOT WATER), if water sprays, then the problen is at the brew unit, if no water then the boiler inlet or outlet is clogged.

Saeco Incanto -- no coffee coming out


After I posted this I decided to descale the machine again, even though I'd just done it a couple of weeks ago. After descaling and rinsing I tried running water through the brew group by pressing the pre-ground button, then holding down the big cup button. Still no water, but then I turned the little knob on the coffee dispenser counterclockwise, about half a turn. It worked! I rinsed it well, then made a cup of delicious espresso.
