Pump problem on a Gaggia Espresso Evolution

Hi, my Gaggia is not drawing water into the pump. I've tried the suggested solution of forcing water into the pump by syringing it up the intake hose, but with no luck. Thinking that it could be an airlock that ain't shifting, I took a hammer to the pump - gently of course. Also to no avail. Everything else on the machine seems to work correctly - heater, steamer. My coffee cups and jar of Illy look sad and forlorn - help needed quickly please!

    Hi thanks for this. Tried this but with no success. Guess the pump is probably dead.....

Hi,

You need a bellows pump or similar, when you start the pump you need to set the pump to the water inlet and press in the water with force.

    Ok,



    I have spare part number to the pump. It is 187721758.



    Hope you get your machine to work again.

The pump does not run water through the filter head. It makes a noise and pumps the hot water back into the water tank


Almost certainly due to the reverse side of the brewhead being scaled up. The evolution has a recess on the reverse of the head that block causing no water to come out. Remove the head and clean it off.

My gaggia evolution leaks water while making coffee .It appears to be coming from inside the machine and leaks everywhere.I have disassembled the machine but i still can 't see where the water is coming...


There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

Gaggia evolution not producing coffee


One question before I make any suggestions: If you remove the shower screen and screw, do you get a nice flow of water or is it still steam?
If you get a nice flow of water, then check your screen hold it up to the light and you should be able to see through the tiny holes, if not, get a pair of needle nose pliers and being very careful hold screen over an open flame like the stove burner. The coffee will burn before the anything happens to the metal. When it is cooled screw into group and see if the flow of water is better.
If you get nothing but steam then it is time to descale the machine.

Hi,

I think you get air in the system, try to find a bellow pump or similary and force in water in the water tank inlet. Make sure you open the steam knob when you do this.

Hope this will help you.

Low water flow from gaggia evolution only 6 months old, have tried descaling, no obvious scale found in machine. pump starts but goes quiet, very feeble flow of water.


I have now solved this problem. The lack of flow associated with the pump working but running quietly is caused by the Group Head being blocked with limescale. Normal descaling cannot remove it because it cannot penetrate the Group Head.
Removing the Group Bell can be achieved using a collection of screws (see photo) and works no matter how stubborn the thing: levering it with a screwdriver in my case was impossible as it was so well glued on. 6d47425.jpg
I figure that the advice to replace the rubber seal once per year is a good one because it forces you to remove the Group Bell and clean it out.

Machine Does not draw water into the boiler


I have had this same problem - it is due to an airlock in the boiler/tubes. Simple solution is to use a syringe or similar and gently force some water up the intake hose from the tank, then try the pump again.
