Re: Re setting

There is no way to do this. One controls flow by the pressure of the tamp, and fineness of the grind. 2.25 ounces or espresso in 20 seconds from 14 grams of coffee.

My Gaggia Unica won't grind the coffee beans, it just whirs and stops making the drink

Gaggia accademia grinds too much

Make sure that your brew unit is clean and lubricated. The CPU on the machine uses the brew unit to calculate the amount of coffee it grinds. If the brew unit is dirty and hard to turn strange things will happen.

Gaggia unica will not prime

Same problem and I FIX it!
The problem was the flow meter (turbine) which can cause two problems:
  1. like your, poor water from steam.
  2. the machine always ask to prime
The first one is caused by limestone that blocks or partially blocks water entering the flow meter (it has a very small hole)
The second one by limestone that block the flow meter rotor
For both:
  1. Remove the flow meter block (with the whole Black block containing the pipe coming from water tank). You have to lift the black block from the back and pull.
  2. Separate the flow meter from the black block
  3. Disconnect the In and the Out pipes.
  4. When you have the flow meter in your hand (only the white piece), open it turning it's top (clockwise may be)
  5. Using a tooth brush clean well inside parts (top, base, red-rotor)
  6. Using a paper clip clean well both holes (in and out)
  7. Clean the o-ring
  8. When reassembling the flow meter pay attention to the o-ring between the top and the base which must be well fitted into it's seat before close it (if not, some air may come in the water circuit and the pump will not work).
The In and the Out pipes must be at 90 degrees when closed.
Before reconnect pipes, blow with your mouth into the In hole. You should hear the rotor rotating very well.
Hope this help

Hold the coffee button down from the moment it is pressed till the water in the cup reaches the desired volume, then release. It will now save that volume amount to memory.

My Coffee Gaggia Vision is grinding and the coffee is coming out very weak. The billet coming out is very wet and small. Any solutions or ideas?

see this matter causes:
Make sure there's water in the unit's water tank.

  • 2 Unscrew the shower disk from the top of the unit and rinse it. Dry the disk and screw it back in place.

  • 3 Replace the coffee grounds with properly ground beans. Coffee beans that are either too finely or too coarsely ground will adversely affect the flow of coffee from the machine.
  • 4 Make sure the coffee in the filter is not packed too firmly if the coffee isn't flowing at all. If the flow is too fast, tamp the coffee down a bit more with the tamper.
  • God bless you

    I took the grinder apart and realized that there is no mark as to where set the initial burr setting. It does not seem to be that you screw it down as far as it will go. the adjuster spring simply gets...

    simply you screw until you hear metal sound of burrs touching each other. Than:

    Grinding setting is one simple operation but requires bit patience:

    1. Turn on your grinder and continue setting to fine while burrs are spinning, you stop when you hear metal to metal touch sound(burrs maximally closed finest grinding)
    2. From that point go back quarter of revolution and mark the spot where you stopped with marker to body of grinder and setting plate with one line
    3. Grind little amount of coffee only to fill one sector of dosser than test it at your machine (if it leaks too fast and with yellow color of cream you should go to more fine>><< if it does not leak from the filter holder or it leaks very slow you go to in opposite way.
    4. You test grinding few times bit after each reset of plate grind little amount and take that in one other pot (that will provide to have pure new granulation)
    After setting measure the grounded coffee that comes out from dosser it should be about 7 grams, better measurement you can get if you measure 10 doses in one place because you don't get never same amount from 6 sectors of dosser

    I have a coffeemate flat bottom filter and don't know how course to grind

    Hi. I started with on a middle setting and noted the taste of the coffee. Grind small amounts at a time. Then change the settings for more or less fine grounds to taste. However, the largest factor in coffee making is the water. Filtered water is best. Then the last factor: the milk/cream/whitener issue. Between taste, cost and calories a bit of decision making is needed to provide the best cup of coffee for your needs. Regards.

    How long should it take gaggia mdf to grind?

    I'm not familiar with this exact model but the problem may be either packing in the unit...since it never worked...or that the beans have jammed the unit in such a way that none are feeding to the burr. Usually, there is a way to remove the top half of the burr after removing the beans. Brush out the area and reinstall. The instructions that came with the unit should be of value. By the way, on some of these units, if the cup isn't correctly placed, it may prevent the burr from receiving flow. Enjoy!
