Question about Gaggia Baby Espresso Machine

2 Answers

I have a 2 year old Baby Gaggia that seems to have seized up and is only sending a trickle of water through the brew head although there is good flow through the steam wand.I have removed the shower head and descaled the machine and now want to access the interior. I have removed all screws on the top front and back that seem to be holding the upper casing but there it seems to be still held in place - I don't want to force it at all. Is there something I am missing?

Baby gaggia no water flow for espresso


I helped my father to fix two of these machines that had this problem. He never uses the steam, only making crema coffee all day long, every day.

It is not easy to fix, but its not complicated either. If there is no water flow from the brew group, but still steam, that means the brew group has gotten clogged with Calcium.

When you take it apart you will be amazed.

You will need a very short and fat Philips head screw driver.

Like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Short-Stubby-Screwdriver-2-piece-Set/dp/B001CWHUDA

or similar. Any hardware store will have it. 1st step is to turn the machine on its side on a soft surface to protect from scratches.

Remove the brew head and look in the brew group where you prob. haven't looked before. You will see a screen with a Phillips head screw in the middle. You need the screw driver to remove that screw. It is like almost melted in from the high heat so you need a Phillips with a fat head so as to not strip it, and a thick handle to apply a lot of torque. And you will need a bit of strength.

If you make it past this just hit me back and I'll tell you more. Or hit me if you have any other questions about this step, or at all. Believe it or not, there is more stuff past the screen.

If coffee is brewing out the side of the head then the group gasket needs to be replaced because it is damaged or there might be coffee grounds stuck to the gasket and it needs to be cleaned using a brush or you can also use cotton swabs.

Gaggia Classic (3 months old). Suddenly there is steam only, no water flow.


If there is no water from the head then remove the screw and screen, then press brew button, if water flows clean shower, using a pair of plies hold screen over open flame, coffee will burn out of the small holes. If no water after trying above then remove the 2 allen wrench screws and carefully remove the diffuser and seat with spring, now try running the head, if water flows reassemble and you are back in busines, if no water descale machine.

Gaggia baby espresso machine-Steam button is stuck


The only thing that comes to mind is that the machine is in steam/hot water mode. Unless you replace the switch and turn off the steam light so that it sends the water to the correct location. Also you might want to remove the shower screen and make sure it is clean.

Gaggia baby 18 momths old water coming through steam bit but no water coming through coffe bit any suggestions libby


HI
If you have a pre-grind button on your machine, push it but don't put any coffee in the brew unit. Push any of the coffee buttons, and see if water will come out then. If it does not, then you have a plugged brew unit and the brew head needs cleaning. I have directions for cleaning.

Low water flow from gaggia evolution only 6 months old, have tried descaling, no obvious scale found in machine. pump starts but goes quiet, very feeble flow of water.


I have now solved this problem. The lack of flow associated with the pump working but running quietly is caused by the Group Head being blocked with limescale. Normal descaling cannot remove it because it cannot penetrate the Group Head.
Removing the Group Bell can be achieved using a collection of screws (see photo) and works no matter how stubborn the thing: levering it with a screwdriver in my case was impossible as it was so well glued on. 6d47425.jpg
I figure that the advice to replace the rubber seal once per year is a good one because it forces you to remove the Group Bell and clean it out.
