Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Is there another way to flush water through the brewing system besides doing a preground coffee without adding the coffee? I know that works fine - but it increments the coffee counter and takes the system one step closer to thinking the dregs need to be emptied even though they don't. I like to rinse after each use so my coffee counter is increasing twice as fast as the actual number of coffees it has made.

You can go through the menu and set the machine to do a rinse after every coffee.

    That menu item only configures it to rinse after the machine has been turned off or in standby mode, then it will rinse after it warms up. So it is really rinsing before your first coffee - not rinsing after every coffee.

    If you have a setting that you are sure will actually tell it to rinse after every coffee, I'd be interested to hear it but the setting in the menu that I have tested does not behave as you described.

Sounds like the the shower screen under the red o-ring in the brew group needs to be cleaned, you can remove the screen and clean or you can purchase some espresso machine soap puro caff or puly caff, and run it through the brew group using the preground method the clean out coffee oils.

My Saeco Incanto Sirius grinds the beans but does not pump out the coffee into the cup


If you already tried the previous suggestion (grind at the most coarse setting) and you still get no water, it may be the SBS brew valve.

As a test, run a blank shot by telling the machine you are going to add preground coffee but don't add any coffee. When you start your shot you should get plain water (probably tea colored as it flushes out some old coffee left behind from previous brews).

If you still get no water, then it is either your brew filter screen is plugged or the SBS brew valve is plugged.

Remove the filter screen and hold it to the light, can you see through all or most of the tiny holes? If not, soak it in a good coffee detergent and scrub it with a toothbrush until the holes are clean (DO NOT USE A NEEDLE TO CLEAN THE HOLES).

If it is the SBS brew valve, you can open it fairly easily to clean it but there are a couple of tiny parts and a spring so be careful.

And final thoughts - the SBS brew valve can be defective - I've had some that were too tight and simply wouldn't allow any water to flow at all. But since yours was working before, it probably just needs cleaning.

The water coming out of the steam nozzle is clear but fromthe brew head it is milky looking. I have descaled


That's ok .
The water from the steam nozzle is straight from a boiler.
Where as the brew head is fed from another boiler via the brew unit,so you will still have some coffee in the system.
If you wanted to you can rinse the brew head by making preground coffee without coffee this will flush it clean.

I have a Saeco Magic De Luxe. I am having a problem intermittent


Could be the pump not providing enough pressure to force the water through the coffee. When using beans or preground, can you still hear the pump function?

Cappuccinatore Milk Temperature on Saeco Royal Pro Machine


Hi

First open it up and run it without any milk attached until just mostly steam is coming thru. Turn off - then drop the tube into a jug of milk which is locted below the outlet. If its steaming, the milk will be heated up ok - it may need flow adjusting - lift the thin 'plug' near the tube up and down to adjust flow. You can add to the froth by lifting the tube out of the milk for a moment then back in again a few times.

To clean the unit just run clean water tru as tho it was milk until it comes out totally clear (about 1/4 cup). For hygiene sake make sure the tube is wiped clean on the outside with a clean paper each and every time when finished.
You can flush your main coffee lines out by making out its doing a large preground coffee - but don't put any preground in.

Select preground - select large coffee and go. Pays also to remove the brew unit and wash in warm water once a week - saves coffee goo building up and causing it to stick.

Rinsing the incanto


Hi,

If you will clean it after using a preground coffe, open the door and take out the brewing unit (central unit) and wash it in warm water instead.

Make sure to descale your machine regularly.

Best regards

This morning my Keurig sounds like it begins to pull water then stops. I tried to cut it off then back on. Still didn't work.Removed water from reservoir and K-cup and added pure vinegar. Ran machine several times without filter or Kcup by pressing cup selector several times. You must open K-cup holder and close each time. I had to do this about a dozen times before the water began to draw again. Flushed system by filling water reservoir with fresh water, and brewed just plain water until vinegar was gone.Works like brand new.

Cuisinart Grind & Brew not using all the water in the reservoir


I was having problems like this and then I read on a different string on this website that people have had success by flushing the system numerous times (sometimes up to six times) with vinegar. I took out the charcoal filter and flushed once with vinegar but only saw a small amount of improvement. I was out of vinegar so I used Lemishine mixed with water and it went from making one cup to making a full pot with one flush.

No coffee coming out of the machine!


First step, increase the grinder size. Note: only change grinder setting while the grinder is spinning. If that does not work, look into cleaning your brew group screens. The machine should have came with a key to remove the screen. If your machine as a preground option try making a preground coffee without inserting coffee to see if only water will come out. If water comes out then you know its your grinder. Usually too small of grinder sizes will stop water flow.
