Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

We have the triple whammy..first the machine would not stop ventilating and now it is on constant rinse cycle.On top of that the brew unit got stuck.. We followed the directions to take out and realign the brew unit but it says to close the door on the machine to realign and now the rinse cycle is continuing instead of the motor realigning the machine for the brew unit. Any suggestions?

It sounds like there was a steam leak in the machine that affected the main board. From what you have given me that is the only thing I can think of that could cause the machine to malfunction in that way.

It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
HERES HOW TO DO THAT...
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
RINSE:
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

After using oily coffee beans the machine drops one drop at a time how do I clean the coffee grinder and drip system alos it says after the rinsing cycle 'ventilate' how do I ventilate.


Hi
The ventilate is just opening the steam valve for just water. Don't push the button for steam. Your grinder needs to be a little coarser. Turn the big know in the bean hopper to a larger #, about 2 to 4
# higher.
You need to clean the brew head in the brew unit.
Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the front, towards the door (looks like an "L" pipe). 2screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring with a black seal (don’t loose it or your out of luck).
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.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Then the spring with black seal down.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the handle side. 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.
Install in machine and test

Stuck in rinse cycle and the brew unit wont come


Allow the unit to complete the rinse cycle.
It may take several jugs of water to complete.

Machine is stuck in rinse cycle and brewunit


Take the brew unit out again, and try to twist the rotational mechanism so that the little arrows in the front of the axis align. This should allow you to insert the unit.
On insertion, you might also need to push the little handle on the front of the brew unit to allow the coffee trough to fit.

Mechanism sluggish and bogs down when finishing the rinse cycle


It can be that the grounds blade is loose, This will jam the brew unit when it`s finishing up. This is actually easy to fix, but you need an ovalbit to loosen the screws behind the watertank. Then you have to reatatch the groundsblade to the brew unit. But i recomend you to contact the local servicedepartement for Jura machines. They can help you with this in five minutes.

My brew unit is stuck,


Try this.

You can enter a sort of diagnostic menu by pressing I believe the bypass doser and the medium coffee button together while you turn the machine on.

I forget which now, but one of the buttons will spin the brew unit one way, and another button will spin the brew unit the other way. The third button will activate the doser which makes a very LOUD clack noise.

You should be able to "wind" the brew unit manually this way in order to release it.

Good Luck.

My machine was stuck on rinse cycle now on ventilate...


Try first to continue filling up the water resovoir (UP TO FOUR times) to see if the machine completes the rinse cycle on its own. If that doesn't work contact Gaggia Customer Service in the US at 888-389-4123. Sally there was VERY helpful and should be able to resolve your problem.
