Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Gaggia Titanium that continues to Steam.

I also have a Gaggia Titanium that continues to steam after the control knob is closed (and opened & closed etc..) Eventually it will stop after multiple twists of the knob. I have only seen this May / June 2009 posting. Do I indeed need a new wand?.. It seems to me that it is a valve that needs replacing.

You need a new valve. Try getting the stainless steel valve assembly.

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 www.partsguru.com) 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.

Steam not working properly = keeps saying close knob then ventilate have waited and pressed 26 + does coffee but then steam not strong enough again


Probably a broken "Steam Valve Cam". They are plastic & prone to failing with consequence that the steam/hot water needle valve does not properly open.

What does it mean when the Gaggia Titanium machine tells you to ventilate the hot water as soon as you turn the machine on?


Ventilate by pressing the hot water button and opening the steam tap. Once water flows freely, close the tap.
If problem persists, its likely to be a broken "steam valve cam"

Gaggia Titanium Espresso machine problem: steam venting into inside compartment after pulling espresso shots.


Normal, depending on the amount, when the hot water goes through the coffee and the pressure builds up the excess has to go somewhere when it stops, usually the drain tray, so there is a little steam loss.

Gaggia Titanium coffee maker leaking water internally from steam tap


What color is the steam manifold? It is located under the black cover with the trough in back under the white tube. If its white or black it probably needs to be replaced. If you cool down the manifold after steaming you can prevent this from happening. Just turn off the steam and then open the knob again to run water. It comes out steam at first but then will turn to a water stream. Then you can close the knob and go about brewing or just let it stand. But its going to have to be replaced.
If it is silver you probably have O-rings that need to be replaced. I would use the black O-rings, not the red. The red ones are a little smaller and can leak.

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.

Steamer on gaggia titanium


a. Possible air in the system. Switch to hot water iso steam, let warm water pas for a minute by turning the knob fully open. Stop tapping warm water (close the knob) and switch the machine to steam iso water. Try to get the steam by fully opening the knob (pump should start running). 
b. Solidified milk in the system blocking internal tubes. To avoid this always purge the system (shortly open the steam to an empty cup or a towel) after you steamed milk to avoid milk being sucked back into the system due to condensation of steam (this creates a vacuum and reverse flow). To resolve the blocked tubing: clean the nozzle and try flushing the system (tapping warm water).
