Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Gaggia Titanium bought new in Italy. tested it to make coffee ALL OK. tested to see if steam came out and it did. Took it on a plane with me plugged it in coffe good but steam does not come out for cappucino. Wondering if or what I am doing wrong. pressed the hot water button, it says 'hot water....' and then turned the right hand side button counter clockwise and nothing comes out --pins and tubes are NOT clogged. it is after all new, but I checked nevertheless.

When you twist the steam knob all the way, it actuates an electrical switch. The first part of the turn just opens a mechanical valve to allow the steam or water to come out but doesn't turn on the heater nor does it start the pump. You need to turn it far enough to trip the electric switch that starts the heat and the pump.

If it still isn't working, then perhaps the switch was knocked loose when it was taken on the plane.

We have inherited a gaggia titanium which has done about 2500 coffees. Although the coffee runs through ok, the steam and hot water pipe does not run at all and the machine says "ventilate" regularly. I...


You might have to replace the steam valve assembly, try to get the stainless steel valve instead of the plastic one if your machine does not have it already. You can get the parts from your nearest gaggia dealer or from servicesunlimited, if yo check the importika.com web site you will find a list of all services agents and dealers.

Gaggia Titanium, makes hot water but no steam


Push in on the steam knob, if that works, then the steam valve assembly needs to be replaced, tell the Tech where you bought the machine that you need to get the new stainless steel valve.

Ventilate error


Try this, when the message comes up press in on the steam knob, if that works and steam is released, then the tap rod on the steam valve has a problem, contact nearest dealer for new part or send it in for repair(ask for new style stainless steel valve).

Gaggia titanium leaking water underneath


i had this same problem. the solution is simple if you are a little bit handy.
there is a bad valve inside. i called Whole Latte Love where i bought the machine and ordered a Steam Valve complete - Compact Frame
its part number GA-%0345.R and two O-Rings

the valve that comes with the machine is plastic and the new one is a brushed metal casing. my guess it will last for 10 years!

two screws on the back and the machine is open
near the front, by the steam wand, with a hose attached coming from the heater, is the valve, attached to the knob on the side
two more screws and the valve wrapped in a plastic housing comes out.
open the plastic housing, remove the insulated hose to the steam wand and the water/steam plastic hose that comes in. replace the valve, hook up the two hoses, but back in housing and you're done. attach back to knob on the outside, put back together and in 30 minutes, the Titanium is like new. no leaks.

it sounds daunting but is pretty easy and beats sending the machine back for repair. i can't go a morning let alone a month without coffee from my Gaggia. once repaired, the coffee is hotter too.
