Try Descaling your machine with Descaling solution. Your group head may be clogged with calcium deposits which will cause a pressure loss.

If you need descaler you can purchase it at

Steam wand it NOT clogged...but steam & water coming out at connection point and not coming through wand. I took it all apart to clean it and now this is happening...

You either missed a seal when reassembling, or did not get a tight seal (may be "cocked") when you reassembled it. In other words, no pressure due to lack of seal.

How do I descal D1000GT

I doubt that you have so much scale that you only get half volume. It could be that the programming is set to TIMING instead of VOLUME. With TIMING, you need to ensure your water pressure is consistent - otherwise a drop in pressure caused by a nearby sink running will "time out," and the result is less volume.
Volumetric water control will not stop until it delivers the full airpot, assuming it is set correctly.
Here's everything for the D100GT:

The way these commercial machines work is by maintaining a volume of 200 degree water in a boiler. When you brew, fresh cold water is allowed into the boiler, displacing a set amount of hot water out to the coffee baskets.

Scale? You might very well have some, depending on your local water supply, and lack of filters. You'd have to pop the lid on the boiler to see if there is any buildup, but I would not recommend it if you don't know what you're doing. Descaling gets a little involved - you might want to bring in a coffee machine tech. That way s/he will ensure that the system is completely flushed, not to mention setting the water volume.

Not pumping water


Many problems associated with lack of water and lack of steam can be traced to blockages in the various pipes and inside the thermoblocks. The mineral deposited from the water build up over time ( 4 years is quite sufficient ) , flake off and block the small pipes.
I suggest a thorough descale as an initial response. If that is not successful, send it to the repairer, requesting a repair guarantee against similar faults.

Gaggia Titanium - can't get it to move beyond 'Ventilate.' This started as a problem with extremely slow coffee output. We've been good about de-scaling but brought it into a repair place who cleaned it...

Select "Hot Water" and open the steam valve. Let it pump water out the steamer for awhile. It usually clears right away but may need to pump a lot of water to clear the error.

If you aren't able to get any water coming out the steam nozzle, you may need to prime the pump with the little squeezy tool they gave you with the machine - or you can use a turkey baster. Mainly you are trying to get water up into the pump to prime it (get the air out of the pump) so it can pump water instead air.

Nuova simonelli vip over pressure problem

Could be lack of water in the boiler, could be a faulty pressure stat or vent valve. Check the level probe first, then the vent valve and then the pressure stat. You can also use the manual fill to make sure water is getting to the boiler.

Water leaks during brew cycle

you have a split in or a loose conection where the water pipe conects to the boiler so water comes from there and the lack of pressure is making the machine work harder which makes it sound bad
