Question about Gaggia Syncrony Espresso Machine
Hi, all. I'll appreciate your advise on this problem. It suddenly started to show this after more than 6 years usage. The machine was cleaned and de-scaled regularly even I have been using water softener at my house.
The symptom is as follows;
1. After selecting one of the three size coffee, the machine will grind the beans.
2. As soon as the grinding operation finishes, you will hear a few clicking sounds (which is normal) and the brewer mechanism is trying to move.
3. At this point, the display shows 'SELF TEST' and the brewer mechanism just go back to normal mode without brewing any fluid at all.
4. This happens regardless of the selected size of the coffee.
5. It was the same issue even when I used the pre-grounded coffee mode.
6. After this issue, if you open the side door, you can see lots of grounded coffee inside the dreck drawer and the bottom area of brewer mechanism.
Thank you for your help in advance.
You have a power control board(PCB) problem. The machine is restarting while trying to make coffee which would be like you turning the power off then on again. The only way to correct this would be to change the board.
