    I just ran my Gaggia Titanium through the descale cycle and now it is leaking out the bottom like described in another post. I'm a little confused though what screws and just what is leaking. I starting to take it apart but not really sure what i need to do to fix it. Going to call wholelattelove tomorrow and see if they know what parts to order. Any detailed help would be great.
    thanks

    After running the descaling program, the machine can not produce steam or hot water. instead water pours out from behind the brew unit. This problem arose during the descaliong process. All was well up to then!

    Thanks for the great video. It really hepled me take it apart. After taking it apart I saw that the water was actually leaking from the bottom of an intake hose. I manuevered some hoises around and was able to get my fingers on the white hose to re attach it to the nipple. Put the water tray back on and no leak. To test it initially to see where leak was coming from I just unplugged, disconnected the power, and opened it up as you show. Attaching the water tray i then saw the water coming out of the nipple. Thanks again

    After opening up my machine based on your video I realized my water was lwaking from an intake hose at the bottom. I disconnected the power plug from unit, and set water tray in place. I then could see that water was coming from a hose that slipped off at the bottom of grinder. I was able to get my wifes smaller hands inside to reconnect hose. After reconnecting I put water tray full back in place and detected no leak. Put back together. So far so good !! Thanks for the video and showing me how to take it apart easier.

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

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.

How to end Compaq CQ70 misery


I have owned a CQ70 for 2 years 2 months. Before I reveal my tips, here's my experience:
On purchase:
- quick start guide doesn't even show keys and switches, how to use camera, etc
- no software or manual supplied, only useless safety guide CD
- request for info to Compaq online: they returned a form to let them know how well they had served me when they hadn't served me at all
- subsequent requests unanswered
- complaint to www2.hp.com returned a worm called HTML-script-inf
First year:
- keyboard failed after 2 months; replaced under warranty
- screen failed after just under a year; replaced under warranty
- sound regularly disappears; have to reboot
- carrying bag burst within 6 months
- SD card reader worked intermittently for a few months, then not at all
Second year:
- I accidentally discovered the touchpad disable button; it doesn't work
- battery expired after 18 months
- replacement screen started to fail after 18 months
Now:
- replacement screen failed completely after 2 years 2 months
- I get electric shocks off the left side
- it generates constant flow of "Enter" commands; keyboard, mouse, USB ports cleaned to no avail; clears on reboot for a few hours (no viruses / worms - I regularly check)
- the HDD will not start spinning on mains power; I have to remove power cord and start on battery only, then replace power cord

Tip #1: I understand from a friend who works for HP that the good components go into the HP series and all the s*** into the Compaq series, so DON'T BUY COMPAQ.
Tip #2: If you have already bought one, put it in the bin or use it for landfill
Tip #3: If you want a reliable computer that will last for years, buy a cheap and cheerful Taiwanese no-brand. We've got two - they're great.

Why wont it switch on?


Check the 2-pole circuit breaker on the left side. You have to remove the back by removing 2 screws. Use a multimeter, test for continuity over both poles.

My ~8 year old Gaggia Titanium Plus was dead one morning.
I checked the circuit breaker and one of the two poles were bad.
I replaced the C.B. and all was fine :-)

Gaggia brera brew group wont go back in


If you close the machine without the brew unit inside, the gears aren't aligned anymore. I tried to put the machine off and then back on. You can hear the gears turn. After a couple of repeats, I was able to put the brew unit back inside.

Hi, the hot water outletpipe( i don`t know how to say it in english) keeps leaking water. If the machine is heating up, tehe pipe allready starts leaking and keeps doing it. The machine is only 8 months...


Do you mean the "steam wand" ? The pipe you would use to steam milk?
That sounds like the steam valve needs replacing or rebuilding. If the machine is only 8 months old it is still under warranty. You should contact the store where you bought it or contact Gaggia service center in your country.

I have a Keurig B60 for about a month now and it's starting to give me some issues... 1) after brewing a cup of coffee, the motor in the unit will continue to run for a good minute and then shut-off...


It should still be under warranty if you only purchased a month ago. I have a friend who had problems with this machine after 3 months. She contacted Keurig at www.keurig.com and they were very accommodating and sent a replacement unit. She says so far so good with it.

I fixed mine.  Sounds like you have a leaking steam valve.  I purchased a new valve from wholelattelove.com for under $25 with shipping.  Techs were great, I called twice and got quick answers.
