I had this same problem. the solution is simple if you are a little bit handy.
there is a bad valve inside. i called Whole Latte Love where i bought the machine and ordered a Steam Valve complete - Compact Frame
its part number GA-%0345.R and two O-Rings

the valve that comes with the machine is plastic and the new one is a brushed metal casing. my guess it will last for 10 years!

two screws on the back and the machine is open
near the front, by the steam wand, with a hose attached coming from the heater, is the valve, attached to the knob on the side
two more screws and the valve wrapped in a plastic housing comes out.
open the plastic housing, remove the insulated hose to the steam wand and the water/steam plastic hose that comes in. replace the valve, hook up the two hoses, but back in housing and you're done. attach back to knob on the outside, put back together and in 30 minutes, the Titanium is like new. no leaks.

it sounds daunting but is pretty easy and beats sending the machine back for repair. i can't go a morning let alone a month without coffee from my Gaggia. once repaired, the coffee is hotter too.

    Hi. I've gotten to the part where one has to remove the hose, the one to the steam wand. how do you remove it? I'm stuck there. The other one had a spring clasp, and was easy. Unfortunately as well, the repair parts that came are already pre connected so the hose is attached to the valve, and I have to take that hose off too! I am assuming that it is only the valve that is leaking..

My Gaggia Synchrony is leaking - If I remove the water catch basis, I can see a drip. We have used this machine every day for years - can the problem be fixed easily?


HI
There is a panel behind the brew unit, that has 2 screws. Remove it and clean the coffee residue behind it. That is what drains the pressure relieved after brewing, and has coffee residue that can build up and cause the leak. It should leak into the drip tray though, except when you rremove it.

Try taking the brew unit out, and clean the area inside the machine for coffee grains before reinserting it. There's a tiny sensor for if the unit is inserted, but it can be confused if the machine gets messy inside.

Leaks water from bottom when brewing coffee or using steam unit


If it is coffee colored water, check the chamber under the white plastic valve behind the brew unit, that might be blocked with coffee grounds. If it is clean water one of the lines might need new o-rings.

No coffe in the cup


Hi
I would say you have a stripped thumb screw. It is in the top left side of the brew unit and holds the filter screen in. If it is stripped there will be water or coffee in the pocket on top left of the brew unit.

No hot water or steam from wand.


If steam wand is not blocked then the problem is on the inside of the machine, try descaling the machine that might clear the blockage in the steam line.

Gaggia Baby - water leaking from round the edge of main bulkhead


you need to replace the main rubber gasket within the bulkhead. due to heat and use, the gasket cracks and no longer is able to seal the brew head. a new gasket should be part of the warranty but you can purchase one and replace your self, pretty simple.

Gaggia titanium is leaking water


Mine had the same problem. Take out the dreg drawer and brew unit. Then you will see a plastic cover roughly in the middle of the machine (behind where the brew unit was) that is held in place by two philips screws. Unscrew the screws and take out that small cover. It is probably filled with coffee grounds that prevent water from dripping out through a dripping hole. Clean out the grounds and you should be all set.

Gaggia titanium leaking underneath


Andy15 - Thanks - you encouraged me to do this myself.   I made a video as I did my repair.  The video making was more work than the replacement of the steam valvle.   Please check out my video if you have have to make the same repair.   Also - the technical support from WholeLatteLove was great.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UgVBoFd5aE

Water leaking into machine


it's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.
