Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

Coffee grounds (unused) dropped into dregdrawer tray

Every time I make espresso shots (small coffee) I get lots of unused grounds in the dregdrawer. I've read other posts that suggest it is the amount of coffee selected in the hopper. I've moved it down (counter clockwise) from where it was and have now almost gone to the last setting, but I am still getting coffee grounds in the dregdrawer. My grinder (the other knob with numbers) was set to 4. I've changed it (while it was grinding) to 6. No change in the problem.

Try to make the grinder position on 2.
And where exactly is the unused coffee-in the drawer or under the brew unit? Did you try to wash the brew unit with water-fill a box with hot water and put it into box. Leave it all night and in the morning just clean on the water and dry it.
Let me know what is result when you done it!

Are there different types of espresso coffee?


The classic form of espresso is a small shot (2-3oz) of pressure brewed coffee made using about 1tblspn of finely ground coffee. There are several ways in which this original format has been altered to come up with various types of espresso coffee drinks. Here is a short list of some of the more popular varieties:

Americano - espresso with hot water added to dilute the strength

Macchiato - espresso shot with a small amount of frothed milk on top

Corretto - espresso mixed with a bit of alcohol

Cappuccino - a shot of espresso topped with 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk

Mocha - a latte with chocolate powder/chocolate sauce added

Can you you tell me why there is a flashing red light on the coffee machine


Descaling light:
• on and fl ashing: signals the need to perform a descaling cycle

Machine ready light:
• permanently on: signals that the machine is ready for use.
• on and fl ashing: signals that the machine is warming up.

Alarm light:
• permanently on : signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full (in this case, also empty
the coffee grounds drawer in order to prevent failures).
• on and fl ashing slowly: signals that the brew group is not inserted, the
dregdrawer is not inserted the coffee bean hopper lid is not on, the service
door is open or the steam/hot water knob is not correctly turned to the
desired position.
• on and quickly fl ashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit.

Leaking coffee grounds and water


HI
There should be a small amount of coffee residue and about an oz. of water going into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief process, when the machine finishes the coffee making. If it didn't release the pressure thhis way you could have an explosion of coffee when it cycles back.

The machine grinds the coffee and dumps the still dry grounds into the dregdrawer. No espresso made. I have cleaned and decalcified the machine. I got a few shots out and I'm back to the same problem --...


Hi
There is a lever at the top of the door on the right side. Pull the lever back 1 notch from the plus(+) . You are dumping too much coffee in the brew unit and it can not compress it, so it dumps it.

No coffee will dispenses


I would remove the coffee spout and check the lines into it. The coffee seems to stop when it hits the spout and goes through the by pass instead. Remove the spout(be careful) then run a coffee and see if it works.

Dregdrawer. miss.


Make sure the machine is clean of coffee grinds. Mine has a nasty habit of dropping them behind the dregdrawer instead of in it. Remove the central unit and give it a good clean. The dregdrawer should then slide back fully into the microswitch.
If this doesn't work, you've probably got a dud microswitch.

How fine have you got you grind setting, if it is a new machine it needs to be on course Grind, fine grinds clog the filter.  You need to reach into where the tray goes with a cloth and wipe clean the filter bin which is right behind a flap

Gaggia syncrony compact digital - DREGDRAWER MISSING


the thing that dropped out was part of the micro switch for the dregs draw. Yes you can use the machine with the piece that you put in there, at some time you might consider just replacing the micro switch.

Are you tamping the coffee at all?

The ground coffee needs to be compressed, using a tamper, to form a hard puck that the water will then get squeezed through.

This has already happened to the ese pods so needs to be replicated in the portafilter when you place freshly ground coffee into it.

The plastic tampers provided with your machine are not fit for purpose and a metal tamper is highly recommended. The base of the tamper should be 58mm
