Question about Gaggia Baby Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Stuck Button Yesterday, the button that you press to activate the pump (the one with the cup icon) stopped sticking in properly. In other words, when you press the button, it is supposed to "lock in" until you press it again, to stop the pump. Now I can press it in, and the pump works, but it doesn't go in all the way and lock in, so if I take my finger off, the button comes out and the pump stops. I can still make espresso, but I'd still like to fix it if I can...

When I press the espresso button instead of esspreso makes a long coffe .I must ad I descaled it yesterday .


You may have accidentally changed the amount setting for your espresso shot when resetting the descale counter.

If you lost the manual you can find one here.
http://www.gaggia-usa.com/support_docs/Gaggia_Brera_Quickstart_Guide.pdf

On page 11 (with the printed number 31) you find how to change these settings:

• Place a cup under the dispensing spout.
• Hold the "espresso size" button pressed for 5 seconds to enter the programming mode; the "coffee" icon will blink quickly and the coffee will start to be brewed; the icon will flash during the whole coffee brewing cycle.
• Press the same "espresso size" button again when the amount of coffee in the cup reaches the desired level.
At this point the button "espresso size" is programmed; each time it is pressed and released, the machine will brew the same amount of coffee that was just programmed.
The same operation can be repeated for the "Lungo size" button.

You could be correct in your assessment and if so, as long as the device is under warranty it needs to go back for servicing. If you open the chambers, the warranty is Void and the device a boat anchor.

instead of pressing the 'coffee cup ' icon button once, hold it down all the way through the brewing procedure (it will bip) until the correct amount of coffee has been pumped into your cup, then release the button. This quantity has now been programmed into the memory and should produce the same amount of coffee every time, on a sigle press.

Cleaned my mr coffee pstx properly and the light will not go off . Unplugged it and everything help !!!


!!!!FIXED!!!!

I know this an old question, but I finally fixed mine. Hopefully this will help someone. I have a PSTX Mr. Coffee (10 cup) maker.

Allow me to provide some background first ...

I started a clean cycle, following the instructions in the booklet exactly. I used 4 cups of white vinegar and pressed the clean button. Easy, right? The reservoir emptied about 2/3, the clean light began blinking and an audible (steady) alarm sounded. I waited for 2 hours for that audible alarm to stop, but it never did. Finally, I unplugged the coffee maker, plugged it back in and tried again. Same results. By this time, I figured I had run enough vinegar through it to properly de-calcify the unit, so I repeated the "clean" steps numerous times with just plain water. Same results. I realized that I could still brew coffee; only thing is, the darned clean light would keep coming on when I pressed brew. Surely, I did something wrong or there would be an answer on the web. I searched many answers, but none fixed my problem. So I decided to call Mr. Coffee (US: 800.672.6333 or Canada: 800.667.8623). I navigated through the menu and found the troubleshooting section for cleaning. The automated voice said, "Place 6 cups of cleaner solution or white vinegar in the reservoir...."

Stop the presses! Did she just say 6 cups? The manual clearly states 4 cups. Also, that's what everyone else on the web is reporting.

So I tried it, and I only used water (since the pot was still relatively clean) - 6 cups of water - pressed the clean button. This is what you SHOULD expect:

1. Place 6 cups of cleaner solution or white vinegar in the reservoir
2. Press the "clean" button.
3. When approximately 2/3 of the solution has brewed through, it will [apparently] stop brewing - the "clean" light will begin blinking (but there should NOT be any sort of audible alarm) - let the maker sit; it's still working on the clean cycle.
4. The final 1/3 of the solution will brew through and the cleaning light will shut off.

This CONCLUDES the cleaning cycle.
Of course, you should just perform a few "regular brew" cycles with just plain water to clear out the vinegar (or cleaner solution) odor.

Bottom line: The manual screwed all of us! 6 cups, not 4!

Try it - Hope it works for you as well as it did for me.

I have a krups xp2070 that i just put a new motor in. When making espresso, the water pump does not turn off. Is it related to the little relay switch that connects to one side of the pump?


The unit is programmed to operate the pump for a very specific period of time depending on the function. Power to the pump is provided by the main power module but controlled by the control module. Either the module is not sending the right signal or the relay on the power module is stuck on. You could try programming the espresso time to reset the pumping time. Will the pump stop if you press the espresso 1/2 cup button again?

Most likely a faulty flow meter unit which is not providing the right information to the control unit. Replacing is not too difficult and the replacement meter is < $20.

Nespresso C1OOB not sucking water out of the tank anymore


I had the same issue and spoke to Nespresso this morning.  To solve this you need to reprogram-put a capsule in the slot and place a cup on the drip tray-press and hold the lungo button until the coffee has reached the desired height in the cup and then release the button.  That should work and every time you make a lungo cup it should be that amount. Hope this was helpful.

Your thermostat has failed. The middle button is the pump. The bottom button is for the steam mode. If you are getting steam instead of hot water when using the pump, then the boiler is way too hot. Either adjust the thermostat or try descaling the boiler.
