You hit it on the money, Jose... the grinding burrs, called the conical burr set in the manual, needs replacing. You can find it at partsguru for around $42, and armed with a standard phillips head, a larger precision phillips head, and a #10 Torx head set of screwdrivers, you can replace them yourself, saving over $300 in repair bills.

Email me for the step-by-step if you want to give it a shot.

SOURCE: No power to Gaggia Syncrony Logic

Re the Gaggia no power problem, the machine does have a re set button, 2 in fact the boiler unit must be removed and the two reset switches are between the sender units (brown in colour).
After disconecting the power source open the machine (top off)The three alan head screws that retain the boiler (front of the machine) unit must be removed it can be lifted clear to gain access to the bottom of the unit where the reset buttons are.
This will save hundreds of dollars in shipping and service fees.
DIY takes about 10-20 min well worth it.
Take care when doing this opperation 240 volts can kill.

The coffee grind could be too fine and or not enough coffee is being added to the brew chamber after the machine grinds it. You can try to adjust the amount of coffee being used for an espresso and or adjust the grind.

My machine is having a problem grinding the coffee it is gringing it but very slowly

Its probably set to fine in the bean hopper. The big knob in the bean hopper should be set around 8. If its lower than that you need to turn it up. If you have 2 knobs in the bean hopper you can turn the small knob towards the + side, but not all the way for stronger coffee.

I have a gaggia syncrony logic.The coffee beans are not going to the grinder so the grinder is just spinning,we have cleaned the machine and cant tell if something is stuck in it or what. cand you help?

This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

Gaggia Syncrony does not get past the grind cycle

Water has probably been spilt in the beans area. The grinder needs cleaning out along with the chute
