Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine
Sorry if I have already posted this.I bought my gaggia 18 months ago within the firs year it was sent back for a replacement brew unit under guarentee .However now it has started leaking water(clear) from underneath-nothing obviouse dripping this has increasingly go worse,so much now I am afraid to use it so it has sat in the worktop for 3 months!!!
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.
