Question about Gaggia Syncrony Compact Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine
I need you help please. I have a Gaggia Syncrony compact that will not get past the grind cycle. It did do enough grinding a couple of times and continued to make espresso but eventually the red light #28 comes on steady indicating the coffee bean container is empty but it is in fact full. All web troubleshooting tips were fruitless. I changed coffee bean type three times to a non grease kind and totally (trust me) cleaned out the grinder more than half a dozen times.
I have taken the machine apart and as best as I can tell the grinder is not pushing the grounds enough. It is a 2003 machine I bought second hand. Could it be the grinding burrs need replacement? I say that because not enough grounds had fallen in the hopper every time but the chute was full of ground coffee and the grinder was also.
I am at wits end trying to figure this out but would like to fix the machine. Please help.
You hit it on the money, Jose... the grinding burrs, called the conical burr set in the manual, needs replacing. You can find it at partsguru for around $42, and armed with a standard phillips head, a larger precision phillips head, and a #10 Torx head set of screwdrivers, you can replace them yourself, saving over $300 in repair bills.
Email me for the step-by-step if you want to give it a shot.

Water has probably been spilt in the beans area. The grinder needs cleaning out along with the chute
