Turn on as if to make a coffee and then the stemer. Some time it's to do with drawing the water from the tank. Otherwise I'd descale it, that will defo fix it.

SOURCE: baby gaggia steamer doesn't work

Does the machine brew hot coffee? If yes, then remove the parnello and clean the holes at the end of the steam wand. If that does not solve problem, then it is blocked where valve is connected to boiler, Try descaling machine. If no then the thermostat on the boiler has tripped and needs to be reset.

The only thing that comes to mind is that the machine is in steam/hot water mode. Unless you replace the switch and turn off the steam light so that it sends the water to the correct location. Also you might want to remove the shower screen and make sure it is clean.

SOURCE: Gaggia Titanium Espresso machine problem: steam

Normal, depending on the amount, when the hot water goes through the coffee and the pressure builds up the excess has to go somewhere when it stops, usually the drain tray, so there is a little steam loss.

Baby gaggia no water flow for espresso


I helped my father to fix two of these machines that had this problem. He never uses the steam, only making crema coffee all day long, every day.

It is not easy to fix, but its not complicated either. If there is no water flow from the brew group, but still steam, that means the brew group has gotten clogged with Calcium.

When you take it apart you will be amazed.

You will need a very short and fat Philips head screw driver.

Like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Short-Stubby-Screwdriver-2-piece-Set/dp/B001CWHUDA

or similar. Any hardware store will have it. 1st step is to turn the machine on its side on a soft surface to protect from scratches.

Remove the brew head and look in the brew group where you prob. haven't looked before. You will see a screen with a Phillips head screw in the middle. You need the screw driver to remove that screw. It is like almost melted in from the high heat so you need a Phillips with a fat head so as to not strip it, and a thick handle to apply a lot of torque. And you will need a bit of strength.

If you make it past this just hit me back and I'll tell you more. Or hit me if you have any other questions about this step, or at all. Believe it or not, there is more stuff past the screen.

We have just bought a secondhand baby Gaggia and we cant get the steam to come out the frother. It is an orange coloured machine .


Propably the steam pipe is blocked from dry milk. You can use a thin steel wire insert it in the pipe from bottom. If you manage to open it a little bit and start having steam then by boiling water and leave the steam pipe imerse in it it will melt the remaining dirt and by open the stem valve then the dirt will spoot out. If not then the valve is blocked or broken.
