This machine doesn't like oily beans. Your best bet is to buy freshly roasted beans that are roasted to a FC or FC+. Viena, French and Italian roast beans won't work well. Also any beans that you buy at the grocery store will be quite old (often 3 months past roasting date) and they tend to be very oily on the outside.

If you have a coffee stirring stick or a chopstick, lift the cover of the bean hopper and stir the beans and sort of poke them down in the center - that's where the beans stick and can't drop down into the grinding burrs.

If you use oily beans you will need to stir every time or every other time you make a cup. Fresh roasted beans at a slightly lighter roast will work fine.

    If you can't find freshly roasted beans. Here is an espresso blend that I have had very good luck with in the Titanium. The roaster ships same day he roasts, the price is good and I receive my beans two days after they were roasted which is as fresh as you could hope for.

Gaggia titanium coffee beans empty


Hi
If the big knob in the bean hopper is on a small #, that could be your problem. try opening the knob to the largest # and try again. If it clears and makes a cup, then on the next cup, while the grinder is operating turn the knob down again, but to a larger # than you had before. Grounds can get compacted in the chamber and prevent new grounds from entering. That is why it grinds but doesn't make a coffee. If that doesn't help, try opening the door above the brew unit funnel when the brew units is out. It should pull down on a hinge. This is the clicking you hear when you make a coffee.

Not clear on "Empty bean container/full grounds drawer) - not empty/not full. " But I gather that coffee is not being dispensed. Most Likely the grinder needs cleaning + brew group needs cleaning ( filter ). Do you get water/steam?

ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans

Coffee beans empty


Try changing the beans to a different brand I had this same problem with the brands that were around $30 a kilo but not with the cheaper ones. They seem to clump together and not drop in to feed the grinder. It could be that you just need to adjust either the internal or external grinder settings also.
