Question about Gaggia Coffee In White, White MDF Grinder&Coffee Bar Base

1 Answer

Gaggia coffee Recently I bought Gaggia Coffee machine made in Germany. The machine is 220V, so I had to buy a transformer in order to run it on the US grid. I never made one espresso with it. As soon as I turned it on, the machine made an awful grinding noise, and never produced any coffee to the cup. Nothing's dripping, and the steam also is not coming out of the pipe. The trasformer I bought works perfectly, and I don't think that's the problem. Anybody have any ideas?

Hi,

Do you prime the machine when you connect it to power?

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


More than likely the machine is stuffed with coffee grind. Need to take it apart and clean it. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQbP2v8C-sA

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.

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

    How do you change the grind on a gaggia coffee grinder?


    if it is everything in order you change the grind buy rolling the plastic container of coffee beans(container commands to upper burr holder. If it doesn't go easy than disassemble container and unscrew the upper burr holder, carefully when it comes out, you have some pins and springs from below. do not loose or displace them.

    How can I clean my Gaggia burr coffee grinder?


    For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.

    Gaggia Coffee


    Hello, I have been experienceing the same problem since I bought this thing. I used to have the classic Gaggia until it died after 15 years. however, when I went to this one it just didn't function the same.I was having water leaks come from the group assy so I replaced the group valve assy which I saw a diffrence and it functioned properly for a few days, then It was acting up again. No steam to froth and water bypassing the group assy... I then removed the valve assy again and saw it was somewhat clogged of mineral deposits.I cleaned it and after a few days once again it wasn't frothing as it should. Yesterday I completely tore this thing apart but couldn't figure out how to remove the steam valve assy. Does anyone have any ideas?? I removed the 2 screws and it won't move. OH BEFORE I FORGET!!! It was working fine the other day and while I was in the middle of frothing, it suddenly went to half pressure.... ANY IDEAS?? Thank you in advance....
