SOURCE: gaggia titanium leaking water underneath

i had this same problem. the solution is simple if you are a little bit handy.
there is a bad valve inside. i called Whole Latte Love where i bought the machine and ordered a Steam Valve complete - Compact Frame
its part number GA-%0345.R and two O-Rings

the valve that comes with the machine is plastic and the new one is a brushed metal casing. my guess it will last for 10 years!

two screws on the back and the machine is open
near the front, by the steam wand, with a hose attached coming from the heater, is the valve, attached to the knob on the side
two more screws and the valve wrapped in a plastic housing comes out.
open the plastic housing, remove the insulated hose to the steam wand and the water/steam plastic hose that comes in. replace the valve, hook up the two hoses, but back in housing and you're done. attach back to knob on the outside, put back together and in 30 minutes, the Titanium is like new. no leaks.

it sounds daunting but is pretty easy and beats sending the machine back for repair. i can't go a morning let alone a month without coffee from my Gaggia. once repaired, the coffee is hotter too.

SOURCE: gaggia syncrony compact is leaking. Removed top

Hi What color is the steam manifold? It is located under the black cover with the trough in back under the whit tube. If its whit 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.

SOURCE: no water coming through the head after prime etc

I have the same problem. I disassembled the unit body from the boiler. There was some scale, which I cleaned out. However, everything was flowing through the orifices with gravity -- no need to use a pipe cleaner because nothing is clogged.

So then I started tracing the flow of water. There is only one thing between the boiler and the shower head: the solenoid valve (in diagram ER0182 part # 27).

Sure enough, the solenoid valve will not accept water through the orifice that would route it to the shower head. Of course, this is with the solenoid unplugged and removed from the system. I soaked the orifice end of the solenoid valve in some decalcifiying solution in the hope that the solenoid piston may be jammed with a bit of scale.

Now I'm going to reassemble and hope for the best. However, my guess is that my solenoid valve needs to be replaced. Everything else is working (pump, valves, tubes, etc.).

I will report back.

GAGGIA Brera RI9833/61 - Descaling light still on after descaling


I think that you button doesn't make a good contact. Try to press it with different pressure and on different sides slightly off center to give this a try - it may be just a bad contact that is enough to change the bean setting but not enough to reset the warning indicator through a long press. Let me know how it goes ... they may have changed the button that needs to be pressed as well (does your manual say anything different?)

I have a Kenmore washer #11026002010. I am having problems with the water overfilling and not progressing to the next cycle. Would you have info on the fault codes and also the recalibration procedure


Does it sound like it wants to spin? If so more than likely the motor coupler broke causing your washer to not spin. It is one of the most common parts that fail.

Anyhow Sears is the best bet for your answers they even list all the steps needed to trouble shoot.

Descale alarm wo'nt turn off after a full descale.


You have to reset this manually after descaling. This is done by pressing the bean selector button for 6 seconds.

Giaggia Brera descaling problem


Hi,
been talking to Gaggia (Philips) and they told me that with the newer Breras, you need to ill the water tank, put the machine into standby, then press the long and short cup buttons together for 6 seconds. This will start an auto descale programme (that they didn't mention in my manual!). A small amount of water will be dispensed through the coffee nozzles, then it will stop and the warning triangle and the prime warning light will come on. Place a large container under the panarello, then turn the knob to the right to dispense water. It will dispense about 50 - 100 mls (cold) water, then stop for about a minute. Just leave it and eventually it will empty the tank. Refill it and start again, but it will stop after a few seconds. Turn the knob back to central position, then it will dispense another small amount of water from the coffee nozzles, then stop with warning lights again. Turn the knob back right to dispense water, if it stops because of empty tank, just refill it. Eventually, the machine will stop and go to standby. Turn the knob back to the centre, refill tank yet again and the machine will start normally WITHOUT that descale warning light. HOORAY !!

My cabrio washing machine want start


start with Activating the service diagnostic modes. You can start with the cycle selector knob at any position.

  1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off).
  2. Perform the following sequence of movement using the cycle selector knob. NOTE: After reset, sequence "a" through "e" must be completed within 6 seconds. When it tells you to rotate the cycle selector knob, it means 1 click, not a full turn. Once you have completed the cycle knob turns reset and "a" through "e", turn the cycle selector 1 click clockwise from the position it is already in. This is the fault code display mode. Then press the start button. Each time you turn the cycle selector knob 1 click clockwise after pressing start will show you an error code. Note: this washer stores 4 codes if any. The error codes on this washer are displayed in this format: F5 E3, F7 E1, etc. There is an error code chart in the image below.

If there are no error codes stored, I recommend that you start from the beginning (step 1 above) and then run the Automatic test mode. If this unit detects a problem, it will display the error at the end of this test.

Post the results back to me.

Gaggia brera brew group wont go back in


If you close the machine without the brew unit inside, the gears aren't aligned anymore. I tried to put the machine off and then back on. You can hear the gears turn. After a couple of repeats, I was able to put the brew unit back inside.

Does anybody know how to get rid of flashing red exclamation light on my gaggia platinum vogue?


It does not need to be descaled as this is not the descaling indicator...The water circuit needs to be primed. Turn the knob to the water drop and drain water into a bowl. Hold the water drop button down while this is happening until the red light turns green. Presto.

Whirlpool Dryer works on 1 cycle


Activate the diagnostic test mode to determine the functionality of the console buttons and the console electronics as a whole.

Diagnostic Mode Activation Procedure

  1. Make sure the machine is plugged and in standby mode. That is, no indicator light is on.
  2. Press the following keypad sequence within five seconds: More Time>Less Time>More Time>Less Time. All of the indicator lights should light up and "88" is displayed.
  3. Turn the cycle selector knob one complete rotation. When the knob points to a cycle, the corresponding indicator light should turn off and the machine should beep. Only a beep is heard when the knob points at the large spaces between the Automatic and Manual cycle groups.
  4. A beep should be heard when a button is pressed and the indicator light corresponding to it should turn off.
Any failure on the above tests indicates a faulty console board. Please let me know the result of the test for further troubleshooting and repair guide.
