Gaggia Cubika Not taking up water into pump

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

SOURCE: PROBLEM WITH LOW FLOW/PRESSURE IN GAGGIA COFFEE DELUX COFFEE MAKER

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.

No steam or water through steam wand on Gaggia Titanium


Try this, push in on the knob when the flow stops, if that works, then the tap rod needs to be replaced. If your machine has the plastic steam valve assembly, try to get the stainless steel steam valve, I noticed that you have replaced once.

Water flows thru the pressure washer pump and out of wand, when I start the motor flow stops. I have a craftsman model # 580.752060 I've taken pump apart and there are no obstructions that I can...


Hi,

Let the water run for a longer time. "Walk" the hoses, from the faucet to the pump and then to the nozzle, holding the hoses up to displace any trapped air in the lines through the pump and out the nozzle. What it sounds like is that air is reaching the pump. When it does, it cavitates, and no water can be pumped. Tighten all of your hose fittings securely. Try holding the trigger down while starting the washer. It may be easier with another person helping.
Best regards, --W/D--

There is no steam coming out of the spout....CUBIKA GAGGIA...and it steams from the main body of the machine. please help!! Thanks


Check the end of the wand that might be blocked, use a paperclip to clear. If that does not work then the valve needs to be replaced.

Same problem with my classic gaggia.


Hi Marc

Just bought one this week with exactly the same problem. As a last resort I opened it up to find the pump had come off the rubber support kinking the pipes beneath so no water could get in.

Undo the 2 philips screws on the top, take off the lid and water filler spout and take look. Looking down from the front of the machine, the pump is at the back to the left. If it's just floating in space as mine was, simply push it gently back into the rubber support beneath making sure you don't kink the pipes.

Mine came by DHL from Italy with no right side up marked on the box, so no wonder it came loose!

Hope this fixes it.

Matt

Gaggia cubika, weak coffee.


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.
