  • Anonymous Jan 03, 2009

    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.

I suggest the spanner is telling you there is a fault, so you will need to get it serviced or repaired. It is doubtful that you can do anything.

My new gaggia platinum vision will not prime. it says "prime water circuit" and makes several loud clicking sounds and then says "restart to solve the problem", but this doesnt solve...

We had the same problem on our machine, and it was fixed by backing the strength setting (the physical dial on the front of the machine) off from the "maximum" setting a small amount. Somehow this was creating too much back pressure, and the useless "will not prime" message appeared.

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