Pump problem on a Gaggia Espresso Evolution

Hi, my Gaggia is not drawing water into the pump. I've tried the suggested solution of forcing water into the pump by syringing it up the intake hose, but with no luck. Thinking that it could be an airlock that ain't shifting, I took a hammer to the pump - gently of course. Also to no avail. Everything else on the machine seems to work correctly - heater, steamer. My coffee cups and jar of Illy look sad and forlorn - help needed quickly please!

Hi,

You need a bellows pump or similar, when you start the pump you need to set the pump to the water inlet and press in the water with force.

How do i set up the vacuum for intake pool?


The first thing you need to do is make sure the pump is primed and able to draw water from the pool and return it with full flow to the pool. Now turn it off and make sure that your hose fits into the suction port and that the hose connects correctly to the vacuum head and the pool pole fits to the vacuum head. Next you need to disconnect the vacuum from the suction port and place the vacuum head with the hose and pole connected to it onto the bottom of the pool. Now force the hose straight down into the pool so it forces water into the hose and forces all the air out of the end that connects to the suction port. Keep forcing more and more hose into the pool until all the hose is filled with water. This is called "sinking the hose". The end of the hose can now be connect to the suction port. When the pump is turned on it should start pumping water from the hose into the pump and when flow is able to draw dirt as you move the vacuum across the bottom of the pool until it is clean. I hope this helps.

My test indicated that I needed to clean the print heads. After 6 cleanings, all is ok, except the Magenta pattern is about 1/3 complete with gaps. The ink is about 1/2 full, and all other colors are...


Hi Mr. walter

This is a problem of clogging of head. You need to un-clog the head hence you need to have with you the following

1. A syringe any capacity
2. Hot water

DO NOT USE ANY OTHER GLASS CLEANING LIQUIDS

1. First take the carriage cradle out of the capping station.
2. Take the hot water in the Syringe and slowly pump a little qty. of water in the Magenta inlet nozzle
3. Then pull the syringe back so it will get the water from inside out in the syringe.
4. Inspect if any small derbies of clogged ink is being sucked by the syringe.
5. Now again pump a little hot water into the ink inlet nozzle
6. Repeat Step 2 again for 3 more times

DO NOT PUMP THE HOT WATER WITH A GREAT FORCE THIS WILL DAMAGE THE HEAD.

My Gaggia stopped pumping after I ran it pumped for 10 minutes


Hi
First thing don't use vinegar because it can damage your machine. Citric Acid is what you should use. You may need to prime the machine again. Force water down the intake receptacle below the water tank.

Keurig coffee maker won't draw water from the resevoir


I just got mine to work by forcing water into the pump to force it to prime. I took a syringe for a meat injector and built a gasket so it would seal over the water intake. Then I forced several syringes of water into the pump till it finally picked up and caught its prime.

New Keurig B140 will not pump or prime


On the water reservoir there is a little black disk, a magnet, I think... If that is not against the machine it will display the prime error. Empty the water from the reservoir and tilt it so that the disk is against the machine. Place the reservoir empty back on the machine and fill it with water carefully as not to move the disk. When the water level gets to the correct position, the prime error will go away.

Hi,

I think you get air in the system, try to find a bellow pump or similary and force in water in the water tank inlet. Make sure you open the steam knob when you do this.

Hope this will help you.

1996 dodge ram 1500 overheating


Check the lower radiator hose to see if it has gone "soft" Check when the engine is cool and stopped, grasping the hose and giving it a squeeze, you should feel the presence of a "spring" in the hose. That should be there to prevent the hose from collapsing as the water pump draws coolant through it. Without the spring, the draw created by the pump intake, and the resulting venturi effect will collapse the hose, cutting off the flow.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Baby gaggia wont pump


The pump may only have lost its prime. To prime the pump:

Fill an ear syringe (available at most pharmacies) with water. Insert the business end of the syringe securely in the tube that normally takes up water from the reservoir. As you squeeze the syringe bulb, flip the brew switch on. If you see movement of water in the tube, and hear a change in the sound the pump is making, flip the brew switch off, remove the syringe, and put the tube back in the filled reservoir. Now flip the brew switch on, and see if the pump can draw water on its own. Repeat several times if necessary. If the pump still won't pull water, then it must be replaced.

Machine Does not draw water into the boiler


I have had this same problem - it is due to an airlock in the boiler/tubes. Simple solution is to use a syringe or similar and gently force some water up the intake hose from the tank, then try the pump again.
