    Hi I have the same issue. Have tried the suggestion to get rid of the air but to no avail.

    Have also rinsed the brew unit. The machine will complete a cycle if you select pre-ground and don't have any grounds in the compartment.

You have air in the system.

Try to make a cup of water (tea).

I fixed it!!!

Take the brew unit out and remove the grey inlet peice (2 screws) then take out the peice with the perforated disc in it out and remove the disc. Clean the disc so you can see through all the holes and re-assemble.

This sorted my machine out and it now behaves correctly again.

Gaggia platinum stays in warming mode

Mine had the same problem, try resetting the two thermal cut-outs on the boiler. They are little dark grey switches that look like jumpers nested between the 4 cables going into the boiler. If they pop back when you press them, you have it.

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.

If it's new send it to a service centre.
These grinders are failing and can also damage the power supply board.
