    I just ran my Gaggia Titanium through the descale cycle and now it is leaking out the bottom like described in another post. I'm a little confused though what screws and just what is leaking. I starting to take it apart but not really sure what i need to do to fix it. Going to call wholelattelove tomorrow and see if they know what parts to order. Any detailed help would be great.
    thanks

    After running the descaling program, the machine can not produce steam or hot water. instead water pours out from behind the brew unit. This problem arose during the descaliong process. All was well up to then!

    Thanks for the great video. It really hepled me take it apart. After taking it apart I saw that the water was actually leaking from the bottom of an intake hose. I manuevered some hoises around and was able to get my fingers on the white hose to re attach it to the nipple. Put the water tray back on and no leak. To test it initially to see where leak was coming from I just unplugged, disconnected the power, and opened it up as you show. Attaching the water tray i then saw the water coming out of the nipple. Thanks again

    After opening up my machine based on your video I realized my water was lwaking from an intake hose at the bottom. I disconnected the power plug from unit, and set water tray in place. I then could see that water was coming from a hose that slipped off at the bottom of grinder. I was able to get my wifes smaller hands inside to reconnect hose. After reconnecting I put water tray full back in place and detected no leak. Put back together. So far so good !! Thanks for the video and showing me how to take it apart easier.

Andy15 - Thanks - you encouraged me to do this myself.   I made a video as I did my repair.  The video making was more work than the replacement of the steam valvle.   Please check out my video if you have have to make the same repair.   Also - the technical support from WholeLatteLove was great.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UgVBoFd5aE

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.

Why wont it switch on?


Check the 2-pole circuit breaker on the left side. You have to remove the back by removing 2 screws. Use a multimeter, test for continuity over both poles.

My ~8 year old Gaggia Titanium Plus was dead one morning.
I checked the circuit breaker and one of the two poles were bad.
I replaced the C.B. and all was fine :-)

Hi, the hot water outletpipe( i don`t know how to say it in english) keeps leaking water. If the machine is heating up, tehe pipe allready starts leaking and keeps doing it. The machine is only 8 months...


Do you mean the "steam wand" ? The pipe you would use to steam milk?
That sounds like the steam valve needs replacing or rebuilding. If the machine is only 8 months old it is still under warranty. You should contact the store where you bought it or contact Gaggia service center in your country.

My Gaggia Titanium Plus is leaking water. Can I fix this or is this something that merits me mailing it back to the seller for service? About 2-4 ounces of water puddles underneath the machine each...


I fixed mine.  Sounds like you have a leaking steam valve.  I purchased a new valve from wholelattelove.com for under $25 with shipping.  Techs were great, I called twice and got quick answers.

Whirlpool Cabrio Leaks Water


Good luck. Mine did the same and they sent their technicians out to fix the problem. A&E comes out and replaces the tub ring. They told me the washer is now made with the tub ring in place. When he opened the washer up I noticed I now have rust inside my washer. I have spent a month trying to get Whirlpool to replace my washer but they will only replace parts. A&E came out to replace the tub ring and now my door creaks and my washer does not go back together correctly. Hopefully you can justreturn the washer to where you got it. Read other reviews on line. It sounds like this washer is a lemon. Sorry!

Gaggia titanium dispenses different amounts of brew


First thing to you should try is descaling your machine if you haven't already. If descaling does not work then it might be some kind of leak issue.

You see, when leaks are present internally in the espresso machine it varies the amount of the cup, because a portion of the water which should have gone into your cup, has leaked into the machine.

It looks like your machine needs some service.

Visit www.CeriniCoffee.com if you need service in the New York City Area.
