Gaggia Titanium dumps ground coffe inside unit

Hi when we select one of the coffe buttons the grinder starts but no coffee is dispensed, when you open the unit the inside is covered with ground coffee. I have removed and cleaned the brew unit, cleaned out the bean hopper and removed all grounds from within the unit. When it is re assembled it will dispens 1 cup of coffe then on the second will again dump the ground coffee inside the unit. Please can you help?

    Hi bansheracer,
    thanks for your quick response, I have done the action that you suggested but unfortunatly this hasn't fixed the problem. I have investigated further and can give you some more information. I have once again cleaned out the machine and brew unit and after reducing the coffee chare setting tried again and got 1 cup of coffe, trying for a second cup just resulted in the ground beans being dumped inside as before. So I checked out the brew unit and found the source of the problem - the spent grounds are not being dumped into the ground hopper so consequently the newly ground coffe is just dumped. Have you any suggestions?

You have 2 knobs in the bean hopper. The small one is set to the most positive. Turn it back 1 click from the plus and that should take care of your problem. When you have a clean brew unit it will make the first coffee but a little coffee is left in the brew unit and when it tries to make the second coffee a full charge and the little that was left cause an over charge, and dumps the coffee without making anything.

    I would suggest checking to see if you have the scraper blade for removing the spent coffee. Its up inside the brew unit where the cylinder is. It looks like a bull dozer blade. Depends on the age of the machine but newer ones have a metal bar that removes the spent coffee.

Ground coffee will not dispense

The beans are hanging up in the hopper and not falling down into the grinder...... wiggle it, give the beans a push, or go to a bean that is not so sticky....

The brew unit is not tamping the ground coffe properly.

Give the brew unit a good wash,then lube all the moving parts with food grade grease.
If you are able dismantle the brew unit and wash in warm soapy water,this removes coffee and any old lubricant.

Gaggia titanium coffee beans empty

If the big knob in the bean hopper is on a small #, that could be your problem. try opening the knob to the largest # and try again. If it clears and makes a cup, then on the next cup, while the grinder is operating turn the knob down again, but to a larger # than you had before. Grounds can get compacted in the chamber and prevent new grounds from entering. That is why it grinds but doesn't make a coffee. If that doesn't help, try opening the door above the brew unit funnel when the brew units is out. It should pull down on a hinge. This is the clicking you hear when you make a coffee.

'Grinder Blocked' error message

The grounds chamber is clogged, you will have to open the machine and clean out the chamber on the side of the grinder, it is the one covered with the little door, you might be able to get to it if you dremove the brew unit.

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
