Question about Gaggia Baby Espresso Machine
The pump may only have lost its prime. To prime the pump:
Fill an ear syringe (available at most pharmacies) with water. Insert the business end of the syringe securely in the tube that normally takes up water from the reservoir. As you squeeze the syringe bulb, flip the brew switch on. If you see movement of water in the tube, and hear a change in the sound the pump is making, flip the brew switch off, remove the syringe, and put the tube back in the filled reservoir. Now flip the brew switch on, and see if the pump can draw water on its own. Repeat several times if necessary. If the pump still won't pull water, then it must be replaced.

Fixed mine with a syringe of vinegar and hot water, several 10 ml injections into long line that goes into tank, turn on pump. if movement inside the hose that goes to the tank, turn off. and repeat several times, eventually using a big Mardi Grad cup full of the solution before transferring to the water tank. Don't give up!

Call who ever you bought it from and have them diagnose the problem. I think you have a disconnected hose or something worse.
