If you make a pre-ground shot but don't put any coffee in it, and it does the same thing you have a blockage in the brew head.
If it run normally, your grind is to fine. Turn the grinder knob to a larger number. It takes 3 times to change to the new grind.
If it still dribbles, remove the brew unit (behind the door)
Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the door. 2 screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold. Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (becareful, there is a spring and inside a steel ball (don't loose it or your out of luck). Turn the brew unit upside down while holding the brew head in your other hand and the steel ball should fall out. If it doesn't come out put a towel down and tap the brew unit on the towel. This should force it out.
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember thumbscrew, DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.....
Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. 1 big one in the center and a small one to the side.
Now use air to blow back through the opening where the steel ball was to clear the opening. Once its open, clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the steel ball in first. Then the spring.
Then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the door. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head.
Run another pre-ground without the coffee and rinse it out. Do this once in a while to prevent this.

Leaks water from bottom when brewing coffee or using steam unit


If it is coffee colored water, check the chamber under the white plastic valve behind the brew unit, that might be blocked with coffee grounds. If it is clean water one of the lines might need new o-rings.

Gaggia Titanium coffee maker leaking water internally from steam tap


What color is the steam manifold? It is located under the black cover with the trough in back under the white tube. If its white or black it probably needs to be replaced. If you cool down the manifold after steaming you can prevent this from happening. Just turn off the steam and then open the knob again to run water. It comes out steam at first but then will turn to a water stream. Then you can close the knob and go about brewing or just let it stand. But its going to have to be replaced.
If it is silver you probably have O-rings that need to be replaced. I would use the black O-rings, not the red. The red ones are a little smaller and can leak.

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.

Water does not flow through the coffee group but only exits viasteam pipe. Decalcifying and cleaning or resetting factory settings do not solve the problem. what to do?. The problem occurs after I have...


Hi
When you are finished with steaming, try pushing the steam button again and then opening the steam valve to purge the steam. Do this until the water flows freely. You should hear the pump change tone. If you have a pre grind button, try that without putting any coffee in the pre ground chute, then push a medium coffee. Water should flow through the brew unit freely. If not, you are getting a blockage in the brew unit. If it does, your grind on the machine might be too fine. Change to a coarser grind and try again. It usually takes 3 cycles before the grind is in effect.

No coffee is dispenced


Ok, If you pull out the waste water tray and bean tray, along with the brew unit ( by pushing the lever that says push) turn the brew unit upside down and you will see a layer of waste coffee grinds on a circular metal plate, just rinse it under a cold tap, dry it off and reassemble
Also you may want to try rinsing other parts of the brew unit and give it a general clean if there are any other build-ups of coffee grinds :)
