Look for easy stuff first. If you can get the top cover off, see if any of the piping/tubing joints are leaking.

If it leaks around the portafilter while making coffee, you need to change the portafilter gasket.

If water dribbles into the portafilter after making coffee, replace the three way valve.

If it is dribbling water in to the catch pan it is either the three way valve that needs to be replaced or the boiler gasket leaking and needs to be replaced.

Hi,

I think you have to replace the gasket in the machine where the portafiller fits on the machine.

Make sure your filter is clean before you replace any gasket.

SOURCE: Keurig starts & stops without brewing coffee, just descaled

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

SOURCE: coffee ground are coming out of the k-cup area

Make sure the needle in the bottom of the K cup holder is not missing, broken or bent. Also, look at your used K cup when it comes out. Is there a hole in the top and the bottom? It sounds like the pressure is building up within the K cup due to a backup at the bottom of it. This could also occur if the bottom needle hole is obstructed. Be careful...the needles are sharp!

SOURCE: Keurig only brews about 2-3 oz. of coffee.

Doesn't sound like a descaler issue. I am having problems with mine and noticed that water is flowing back into the reservoir when it is pouring into the coffee cup. I think there is a valve that is not closing properly.

Hi my Gaggia Classic is not pumping water out of the perculator head, I have flushed the screen and the motor is running ok and the steam attachment works fine?


If you can get hot water from the wand, then the problem is in the boiler fitting that feed the head, try descaling again, or remove the screen and diffuser and clean area or backwash machine.

How to remove shower disc


You can use the filter holder blocked with a piece of nylon so water will make the coffee around the shower and screw to desolve. Just keep the filter holder with hot water for 30 min and then try to remove the screw. You can hold the small screwdriver with a plyer and by heating it a litle bit on the back try at the same time to turn it. This will loose the screw.

I have a Gaggia Evolution expresso maker about 8 years old. When button is pressed to start motor it just hums and no hot water comes out. The motor only runs if I open the steam outlet


Try this, under the grouphead, there is a screw and screen, remove those, and check screen to see if it is clogged, when screen is removed press button to brew, if water flows freely then problem is at the screen, if no water flows, then it is on the inside of the machine. You will have to run a descale cycle to clear out machine. Check the folling pic for the screen location.2722dbe.jpg

Hot water


Have you kept up with descaling?

Probably the water heater has failed. If you're technical then most parts should be replaceable but you may have to order them from Gaggia in Italy.
