Question about Gaggia Syncrony Logic 74884 Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker

1 Answer

No steam pressure with little to no water/steam

Hi, we have a Gaggia Syncrony Logic coffee machine which we have had for a couple of years. We haven't had any problems with it until a few days ago. The frother doesn't seem to have any pressure, it releases a tiny dribble of steam and then the red light goes on constant. The water level is fine and the machine is filled with coffee beans. I tried to descale it to see if there was a blockage somewhere, this hasn't fixed the problem. I was able to get a little water out of the steamer by turning the nob without the steamer button being pressed, though this again only let a little water out and then the red light came on. In addition to trying to descale it, I also used a pin and pipe cleaner to clean out the steam pipe. It didn't appear to be blocked. The steamer was making a funny werring noise while it was trying to dispense either water or steam. Do you have any ideas?

Remove the steam wand and inside you will find a small teflon like tube at the top, throw that away and run water through the wand to make sure it is clear then re-assemble in machine and test.

SOURCE: Beans stick in hopper

The problem is that beans have particles and oil on/in them, jamming the switch which is giving you this message. Invert the unit on a hard surface covered with newspaper and give it a couple of strong taps against that surface. The junk should fall out and get you going again. Clearly, you're missing something when disassembling the unit.

We have a Gaggia Syncrony Logic that is just over two years old. After each brew cycle, the puck is successfully ejected but water and some grounds flow out under the drip tray instead of into it....


Hi
Check the drain behind the brew unit. There is a pocket below the injector that can plug up and cause water to drain under the drip tray. Check this first. Stick you finger in the pocket and see if there is water in it. If there is, the drain below and to the right is plugged and just needs to be cleaned.

Gaggia Syncrony "ventilate"


You need to push the hot water button on the machine panel to allow water to run out of the steam wand. After a few seconds the machines ventilate message should clear.

Gaggia Syncrony logic loses water pressure. If left unused for an hour or two it only dispenses half the water it should. After this it's ok until not used for a while. Any ideas?


Yes the machine should not be left on for that long, it only takes a few minutes to heat up. It does not have an auto refill if the boiler is low on water.
If it heats up the water in the boiler for over an hour, it is safe to assume, that the water might at some point turn to steam, when you use it for the first time, it flushes out all the steam, and fills the boiler with water.

The steam wand will only dispense water, and will not steam. What can i do?


Replace the steam boiler, and or check the thermostats and the element on the steam boiler. If those are working fine then the CPU board has failed especially where the power leads to the steam, look for sign of damage on the board.

Hi, Our Gaggia machine will not disburse water through coffee dispenser. Sounds like its operating normally till water flow should happen. Then the motor slows down to nothing. Have descaled to no effect....


Try this press the button for ground coffee then when it lights up press the coffee brew button, if water flows normally then the grind on the grinder needs to be adjusted coarser, if no water then the screen on the brew unit is blocked.

Water is leaking, while the machine heats water for steaming


The steam valve tap rod needs to be replaced, or check machine if it has a plastic steam valve, Gaggia designed a new Stainless steel steam valve for the compact machine.
