    That does not gain access to the steam valve I am referring to. I need to replace the steam valve that has the knob that you turn to produce steam. The steam valve is located behind the cover on the right hand side.

It's rather difficult to give a complete explanation on to disassemble your Gaggia. It's much easier to get you a diagram/exploded view of it and give you steps over the anything you get stuck on.

The image is the "Steam Valve/Repair Kit" in question.

You will find the steam valve assembly on page 4 of the diagram,
( sorry but the parts list is in Italian and you will have to submit another question if you want to learn it. ";-} ).
Did I mention it was difficult to explain????

The first link is the exploded view of your Gaggia. The second has several links to items related to it such as the manual and wiring diagram.

Look it over and please ask me anything you need to know to get to the steam valve.
I really hope this helps and good luck.

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 remove the screws to reach the steam valve. also to get the user manual click on this link directly http://www.espressotec.com/store/pc/catalog/gaggia/ga1150_gaggia_titaium_manual.pdf

Can't get rid of ventilate message on titanium plus machine


Try this, after opening hot water valve, push the knob in when it asks for ventilate. If that works then contact your nearest gaggia distrubutor and ask for a new stainless steel steam valve assembly.

Gaggia Titanium, makes hot water but no steam


Push in on the steam knob, if that works, then the steam valve assembly needs to be replaced, tell the Tech where you bought the machine that you need to get the new stainless steel valve.

Gaggia titanium leaking water underneath


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.
