My Titanium leaking water. Under it

The steam valve assembly that the steam knob on the right hand side connects into is probably faulty. When you're steaming if you hear hissing coming from behind the knob then this indicates the connections into this assembly are leaking steam, and also hot water, which is why you're getting puddles under the machine. You can get a replacement steam valve assembly that fixes some issues with the original (part code SVM-17, available from and will prevent the leakage, or you could simply try opening the top of the coffee machine and removing the tube that runs from the boiler into the steam valve. It has two o-rings that provide the seal where it connects into the steam valve assembly, and if you lubricate these with a food grade silicon lubricant it may fix the problem. My Gaggia is 7 years old so I decided to replace the whole assembly which costs about $50 and that solved the problem completely.

My machine pours steam out from the pressure valve, the machine gets very very hot ( to hot ) cant even touch the steam arm

For repairing your steam valve you must take it out from boiler(2 screws m6 hold valve to boiler) before unscrew valve you must take of valve plastic knob and steam pipe.
Carefully you take off the seal of valve, seal prevents axle from completely unscrewing. You unscrew the axle and you go to turner (metal parts shaping machine) there you repair the top of axle, it is like pencil, you only need to sharpen it a bit, than you change 2 o rings in axle, put it in back. Instead the seal you use now one fitting !/4" and you screw it on to prevent getting out the axle

Not enough steam is produced to make good froth.

I have one too and what I do is: turn all 3 switches on and while I'm waiting for the "ready" light to come on I go ahead and pour the milk into my frothing pitcher and prep my espresso basket.
After the "ready" light comes on I install my espresso basket and turn the handle to the "left" so no liquid starts coming out.
Next, I take an empty coffee cup and hold it under the steam nozzle and start opening the steam valve until I get only steam instead of a stream of hot water. Once you have steam, close the valve, put your pitcher of milk under the steamer and froth as usual to around 150 degrees.

Water will not suck up into my Francis Francis X1

I have the same problem from time to time, and in my case it always has the same cause: if I accidentally let the water run reservoir run dry, when I refill and replace it, the machine no longer will draw water out of the reservoir. The first solution I came upon was simply to leave the machine alone overnight and by morning it would be fine. But ultimately I hit upon a better solution:
With the machine on, I switch on the steam and open the steam valve. This of course causes steam to come out of the steamer attachment, but it also has the effect of "burping" the espresso "side" of the machine, and within seconds coffee appears out of the spout. Voila.

Valve stem assembly

Put the rubber seal on the bucket first, then put the spring on the valve stem, slip into the hard collar, then push it into the opening in the seal, it will snap into place.
