Question about Gaggia Espresso De Luxe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Little pressure My Gaggia Espresso (not deluxe) is two years old. The coffee is coming out at a very slow trickle. I have taken apart and cleaned the brew valve but it does not improve. There is no sign of pressure escaping and gaskets appear OK. What are the possible problems?Thanks!

    I just learned about descaleing, I have had my machine about 2 years and I have the same problem. pressure seem good but it trickles once I put the coffe basket on. I think it might be the pressure relief valve. I noticed once I put the basket with coffe on alot of water escapes through the relief valve hose.

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.

My gaggia titanium keeps coming up with ventilate in the display have cleaned the whole machine out made no difference

You need to push the hot water button on the machine panel to allow water to run out of the steam wand. After a few seconds the machines ventilate message should clear.

Water output too slow

Try to see how long takes whout coffee. If it is ok then the coffee is too fine or wed or the filter inside the holder need cleaning remove filter and wash it with hot water and brush so all holes to be open.
If after this you still have slow water without coffee the the pressure pump is not working properly and it need ither descaling or is complete damage so you need a new pump. Good luck.

Baby Gaggia making a bitter brew, help!

Have you tried backwashing, then removing the shower and screen from the grouphead to make sure that there is no coffee buildup on the screen.
As for the leak around the portafilter, the group gasket needs to be replaced,
