    That is a bad one. Just had that on a cost omers brand new similar unit. Made one coffe, done!
    Nobody could help for a year until they found me on the island.
    1. Try to rest the ECU, Look for the reset button or do a reboot as on a computer by unplugging while still ON.
    2. If that does not work, rinse rinse rinse rinse............
    3. If that did not work. The ECU has to be exchanged.
    I know, bad news, but that' s what we had to do.
    In our case it was Warranty!

Open steam knob to ventilate the machine. The machine wants you to run water through the steam wand.

My Gaggia Titanium has an ventilate problem when it is stil cold. After starting up, autotest and running pump, it appears whit message ventilate. It takes a long time steaming or hot water after the


The ventilate sign appears as an error message to tell operator that the flow of water is reduced. I can tell that the machine has not been descaled or was descaled using unscrupulous products that are labeled as descaler but they are not.
Because the sign disappears at this time after flushing water through the steam pipe, the flow restores the sensing that water is flowing normal. This "apparent restoration" of water flow is without any back pressure. The espresso function is restored for limited use.
This error code if not corrected immediately, it will not disappear and not allow any function even after flushing water manually.
The flow meter registers the quantitative flow of water as programmed for espresso.
Please descale the machine as soon as possible. before the 'Ventilate' error message stops all functions.
This is a well designed machine. Needs more attention to maintenance.

How do you fix a ventilation problem


Ventilate means water is not moving through the machine or the machine is not noticing the movement of water.

Try to use the water button to clear the ventilate message. Allow the water to run for a minute. If no water comes out then the hot water valve is stuck and cannot open until you open the valve manually and clean it well. If you don't think you can complete the repairs yourself, then you may want to bring to a service center. Descaling with a descaler like http://www.cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_Espresso_machine_descaler.asp will help prevent these issues.

No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the water was coming out very slowly, in drips. The doser or grind were not the problem, because even when I switched to Hot Water, it was still dripping. ...


Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

Ventilate message


Press the hot water button and allow water to flow from the steam arm until ventilate disappears and warming up appears on the display.
Ventilate after descale is normal.

Machine stuck in ventilate mode after aborted DESCALING. When descaling tripped circut breaker on the power circuit.


Hi
This means you probably have a leak inside. Usually the seals from not descaling enough. The steam boiler is over the power switch and will short the power switch. You can replace the seals in the steam boiler hoses, or tighten the fittings and probably save the machine, but change the water hardness setting in the menu to 4. This setting has saved many machines, but you mest descale your machine when it tells you. This also saves the machine.

Will no ventilate,no hot water will not descale


HI
You have a calcified solenoid valve for you steam and hot water. It either case it has to be taken apart (which is not easy) or replaced. This is why we need to descale more often. Solenoids work on close tolerance and any scale on them will cause the to stick and not activate. Now they will not open to allow water to flow. So now you can't ventilate. Sorry
