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.

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.

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.

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