    Might just be clogged. Run vinegar through it a few times and see if the pressure gets better.

Propably the vibrating water pump is the problem.
It might be full of scale and it can not create any pressure or it is completetly damage and need to be replaced.
First we sugest to perform a descaling of the machine and try again.
Second you should try to reduce by little the quantity of the grounded coffee used. Aprox you should use 7 to7.5 gr of coffee. If you try to use about 6 to 6.5 and you have the coffee runing out from the machine like in 25 sec you have about 30 cc of water. Then try to clean the group shower which it can be ansrew by one cetrer screw and if you can you can open the machine and remove to clean also the coffee group solenoid valve. Bothe the valve and shower can be full of dry coffee that can blocked the way of water coming to the grounded coffee.
If you manage to clean everything above and the machine work ok so from now on in order to avoid the problem again try to flush water from the group many times without any coffee. With this is like you wash the group shower and valve from any remai coffee.
Good luck

Why will it not fill with water but will drain water?


The problem could be 1 of several.

1. Ensure the fill hoses are attached correctly ( hot and cold hooked to correct fill valve positions) and turned on.

2. Are you sure it's not actually filling with water but you're not seeing it because the water level is so low. If it drains the water has to be coming from somewhere!

3. There are screens inside the fill hoses attached to the fill valve behind the washer that can be plugged. When city workers flush lines sand can be forced into the home supply lines to plug these screens.

4. Bad pressure switch or the switch can have suds residue to cause intermittent problems.

The pressurised filter does not seem to have any holes to let water through . Have primed the coffee machine and water came through fine. Used the filter and nothing comes through. All I can think us


There is a spring mechanism on the bottom of the filter that forces the machine to output with pressure before it lets the liquid pass. The machine is obviously not building enough pressure to push the filter. When did you thoroughly clean out the machine last?

My Gaggia syncrony digital has just stopped working....the coffeee is still being ground but there is no coffeee coming out....no water seems to be getting through. Any ideas?


There is one of 2 things going on either the machine needs to be descaled and or the brew unit screen is blocked. Remove the brew unit from machine and check screen below the red o-ring.

Sounds like you need to prime the water pump. Remove the filter holder, open the steam knob and then press the coffee delivery switch. Wait for water to flow consistently from the steamer and then close the steam knob. Water should then be forced to flow through the goup head (coffee head). If you cannot get water to flow from steamer then the pump may have already been damaged or it may have been faulty from the start. If water will flow through steamer but not for the coffee, then the group head is blocked. Good luck hope this helps and remember that all machines should be primed like this before use.

Will not fill with hot or cold water and is connected


You need good water pressure on hot for these machines to work, gravity fed systems may not be enough. I had to attach a pump to mine to improve the hot water pressure (UK)
Switch over the inlet pipes ie hot to cold and cold to hot and try filling the machine when switched to fill with hot water, (machine will fill will cold). proving the valve is opening and it is a pressure issue on you hot water.

I can't get the water to come through the coffee holder. It builds up pressure but won't shoot the coffee out. The water comes out if I take the holder off , but not when it is in place. Do I need a new...


Remove the brew head. Pry out the metal coffee filter, then pry out the rubber gasket. There is a small black plastic insert that is likely gunked up with coffee buildup. Clean the parts well, reassemble, and then try again.
If you are a good "tamper", you can leave out the rubber gasket and plastic insert entirely, and just go with the the filter. It takes a bit of practice, but you will get equally good crema if you match the grind to your tamp pressure.

You need to push the hot water button on the machines panel to allow water to run out of the steam wand. After a few seconds the machines ventilate message should clear.

Top will not unlock


It seems to be caused by pressure build up (not a vacuum) when the outlet of the pod holder gets blocked. There are three plastic bolts that slide into place to lock the lid as the lever is operated. Pressure forces the lid up and increases the friction on the bolts to the point where they won't operate. Solutions 1 and 2: First disconnect Senseo from the electric supply. Solution 1 is to press down on the lid to overcome the pressure and then operate the lever to unlock. Didn't work for me. Solution 2 is to get a table knife, not sharp, no serrations but with a rounded end, not pointed. Insert under lid just to right of pod holder handle, at an upwards angle of about 20 degrees to the horizontal. Then aim for the opposite 11 o'clock position on the closed lid. With a few tries the knife blade should slide between the top of the pod holder and the rubber sealing gasket releasing the pressure. Beware hot steam/water as pressure is released - wear gloves. Open lid, unblock pod holder hole with a pin, fill and heat resevoir and then flush through without a coffee pod in place.
