SOURCE: Blinking light

SCALE REMOVAL
The scale contained in the water, over time, will
cause plugging up of some elements in the appliance
and will thereby compromise its correct functioning.
The result will be that more time is
required to make coffee. The formation of scale
depends on the hardness of the water and on how
much the coffee maker has been used. To achieve
the best performance, descaling must be carried
out every so often. The coffee maker has a built-in
system that counts the number of cups of coffee
that have been made. The ON DRIP pilot light will
begin to blink when it is time to carry out descaling.
To do so, proceed as follows:
• remove the anti-chlorine filter (if present) and the
permanent filter from the coffee maker (so as not
to bathe them with vinegar)
• Dissolve 2 dessert spoons (about 30 grams) of
citric acid (available in pharmacies) in the
water;
• Place the container on the heating plate;
• Press the DRIP/AUTO button twice, allow
the equivalent of two cups to percolate and then
turn off the appliance;
• Allow the solution to sit for an hour;
• Turn the appliance back on and allow the rest of
the solution to percolate;
• Rinse by allowing the coffee maker to operate
with only water at least three times (1 full container
each time).
• Press the PROG and DRIP/AUTO buttons
simultaneously to reset the counter to zero.
IMPORTANT: if the machine is left unconnected to
the electrical mains for over two months, before
using it again it is necessary to carry out the
process of scale removal as described in the preceding
section.

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.

Unlike the other person offering a solution I have experienced this problem like you when making the first cup. I found that sending a blank shot of water through first does the trick before putting the coffee grounds on. Hope this helps.

When I press the espresso button instead of esspreso makes a long coffe .I must ad I descaled it yesterday .


You may have accidentally changed the amount setting for your espresso shot when resetting the descale counter.

If you lost the manual you can find one here.
http://www.gaggia-usa.com/support_docs/Gaggia_Brera_Quickstart_Guide.pdf

On page 11 (with the printed number 31) you find how to change these settings:

• Place a cup under the dispensing spout.
• Hold the "espresso size" button pressed for 5 seconds to enter the programming mode; the "coffee" icon will blink quickly and the coffee will start to be brewed; the icon will flash during the whole coffee brewing cycle.
• Press the same "espresso size" button again when the amount of coffee in the cup reaches the desired level.
At this point the button "espresso size" is programmed; each time it is pressed and released, the machine will brew the same amount of coffee that was just programmed.
The same operation can be repeated for the "Lungo size" button.

Is there a way to stop coffee from spraying?


There is a little part that sells on ebay for $2 that slides into the Keurig brewer lid and stops coffee from spraying from reusable K-cups. It works great and is guaranteed or money back. Here is the link:

I lost power and now I get blinking lights on my le Cube 185


I had a similar problem where both Small and Large cup buttons on mine blinked intermittently. I did a reset of the large and small cup flow levels based on the following and it seems to work fine now:
1. Switch off power 2. Press and hold Large cup button 3. Switch on power while still holding down large cup button
See if that solves your problem.

Filter Basket pops open while grinding and brewing


Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.

Can't get a full cup of coffee


First, you should not be using your espresso machine as an american coffee maker. It puts way too much pressure on the components of the machine. The standard cartridges are made to do 1.5 - 3.0 ounces of espresso. should you want to make a longer cup of coffee you need to get the aroma point gran caffe cartridges, lavazza code 427. this will enable you too get the longer cup of coffee without putting the added stress on your machine. Also it sounds like your machine mighy have a problem with the volumetric device. are you getting water in the capsule ejection drawer? should you want service you should call 781-393-2929. we are an authorized lavazza distributor and repair center.
