Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Hi, my Gaggia Cubika doesn't seem to take water up into the pump. I've taken it all apart & checked air flow & the pump makes noises & vibrates but it seems to get quite hot. The brass T at the end of the pump doesn't seem to have air flow as I can't blow through it. Is that normal? Also the screw valve on the end of that same component, should that be screwed all the way in or out please? Best regards, Adam

the most likely reason for poor flow through the brewhead is a blockage in the outlet valve.the outlet valve is behind the shower disc holding plate and can be removed with 13mm socket. a straightened paper clip needs to be insrted in the outlet to clear any internal blockage,then pump water through. if the outlet valve splits in two ensure the rubber bung is inserted upwards.once refitted all should be fine

SOURCE: Gaggia Carezza pump problem
I had a similar problem. Steam was fine, but just a drip out of the group head. The hoses looked fine, so I ended up taking apart the boiler. This really isn't too hard. You need metric allen wrenches size 3 and 5, a pair of channel locks and a screwdriver. You'll have to take all the wires off the boiler, so make sure you mark them before taking first. Remove the four allen bolts from below and you can take the whole boiler out. Removing the four allen bolts on the boiler will allow you to separate it and clean it. Mine was nasty. When I put everything back together, the pump sounded normal and I got normal flow from the grouphead. Hope that helps.
