Gaggenau vk230 steamer doesn't work

I have taken this steamer back to gaggenau about 5 times and they say it works. Each time they bring it back to my place and install it it works first time but when they leave and I want to start it up the boiler just doesn't kick in. The other day my wife brushed against the temperature knob and it worked but hasn't since. This is a really weird problem that I can't figure out. Please help it's been a year now I have had this very expensive steamer that I can't use.

Are you sure the child lock feature is not preventing it from working? Exactly what is the problem? Is the display blank? Is the problem that it just won't heat? Are there any error codes in the display?

I also have a VK230 that is having problems and am gaining experience with troubleshooting this steamer. Gaggenau is very difficult to work with and it is difficult to find a service company that is knowledgeable about the brand.

Are you interested in selling yours? Parts from yours may help me fix mine.

I have the same issue. I have tried replacing the O-rings in the water heating element and the steamer, and it still does this. For a temporary fix, try running the steamer for about 30 seconds, or until it is running "full steam", and immediately make your coffee. This has worked for my machine for the last 4 months. It is used about 5-10 times a day at my work, and this still is working. I believe the issues is it is losing pressure somewhere, and the water cannot travel through the infuser. I have taken apart my machine more than 10 times, and I still cannot find out where the pressure loss is. I know this is a temporary fix, but it will work until something more permanent can be done. Hope this helps!

When my sis wanted to use the rice cooker,a "f2" sign appeared.


I opened the cooker and removed the battery and put it back, it worked. Beware that the battery is glued to the circuit board and has to be taken out carefully. Guess removing the battery made the machine forget its previous state and is now back to cooking.

Steam frother


1. Pour in vinegar instead of water. 2. Bring vinegar to a boil but do not run it through the machine. 3. Turn off machine for the machine for an hour. 4. Remove sheath from the steamer. 5. Place tip of steamer into large mug of cold water. 6. Turn espresso machine on and allow vinegar to run through steamer.
Optional: Before starting the process, unbend a paperclip or metal hook (for hanging holiday ornaments) and use it to clear the steamer orifice.
It may take the vinegar a little while to dissolve and loosen the blockage. If the process does not work the first time time, try again later and allow the warm vinegar to sit in the machine longer.
