  1. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, I'm posting this in several forums since I haven’t gotten a response which help me to solve the issue. Recently I added a Auber PID to my Gaggia Classic 2010 but I have noticed like the pump in constantly on/off while it's brewing, there is a different sound every time the out (AT) led of...

    Hi all, I've got an issue with my 2014 Brewtus and I'm weighing up my options so I'd appreciate your opinions and advice. There are 2 issues that I need help with. 1. The pump has started to 'stick' when I flip the lever. I'll explain. So when I warm the machine up I sometimes hear the...
  3. Gaggia Forum
    Hi all! I mounted my pressure gauge to my portafilter to my Gaggia Classic 2002 today because I wanted to adjust the opv valve. I have tried as best as I can to turn the screw of the head of the opv valve, but I found out it to be stuck. No matter the force applied I could not get it to...

    in an idle moment, i was thinking about an automated lever sort of arrangement. so instead of a rattly vibe pump or a mains connected rotary, how about a 50mm syringe, with a couple of one way valves and a pressure sensor. syringe operated by a stepper motor driving a screw thread. electronics...

    Hi folks. I've ended up with an enormous surplus of milk jugs! Most of them are Motta and all are in varying condition. There are a couple of other bits and pieces listed here. I'm based near Beaconsfield if anyone wants to pick any of this stuff up and I'd prefer bulk purchases if at all...

    On my caffeo barista TS, the cappuccino function has stopped working since a couple of days ago. When I select the function it spews hot vapor instead of the milk for the cappuccino. I've cleaned the tube, we've dismantled the front to make sure nothing was clogging it up, and nothing, it's...
  8. Fracino Forum
    I just started descaling my cherub as I thought my problem was likely to be caused by loose scale. But I noticed that when I filled the water tank with descaler and switched on to fill the boiler, it aborted with the low water alarm. Now, this is not unusual - in the past it has always timed...
  9. Rancilio Forum
    I'm new here, thanks for any help. My 10 year old Miss Silvia, boiler replaced twice, buttons replaced 3 times, wand replaced once. Not even sure why it is still alive? But I just did a complete maintenance overhaul again (group head seal, screen etc.), and the very next time I used it the...
  10. Sage Forum
    Hi can anybody help me diagnose what's wrong with my Sage BE, which has worked fine up to now, but ceases to deliver any shots now. I ran a cleaning cycle as the light came on, and also descaled with white vinegar After that I have a rattly solenoid noise, and the shower head delivers a tiny...
  11. Lever Forum
    I've recently noticed that the pump that triggers on pulling the lever at the start of the shot isn't always coming on. I'm sure this always used to do so. It still does sometimes and then others will trigger at another point. I'm sure I'd heard that the ceme switch for prefusion was a bit...
  12. La Marzocco
    In the past I was using a Bosco lever machine. I enjoyed the silence whiles pulling an espresso. I was lucky to get a second pump for a cheap price for the LM. The original one I left inside the machine, incase a maintenance is necessary. I installed the second one in the storage room beside...

    Is this a thing, will they deliver those massive bottles to a domestic customer? Does anyone on here do this in a domestic setting? Just saw this flowjet system . and it made me think I could have half a dozen of those 25 litre delivered and then use a "plumbed in option" I was vaguely aware...
  14. Gaggia Forum
    Hi all. Any thoughts on which pump I should get as a replacement for my Gaggia Classic. My shots are bitter and I've heard that the standard Ulka pump is not that precise with it's ability to maintain consistent 9 bar. Any thoughts please?
  15. Sage Forum
    Hi, I'm looking for advice from people with the same setup really. I recently bought a Smart Grinder Pro to accompany my SDTP espresso machine. I've probably tried about a half dozen different beans, couple of dark roasts and the rest medium. I'm finding that unless I only use about 2kg of...
  16. Gaggia Forum
    Hello all. My trusty ten year old Classic has blown and I need some advice as to how to fix it. I have it on a timer switch and since it was last used, someone has switched the pump to the on position. So this morning, when the timer switched the machine on, the pump immediately pulled all of...

    I have a 14 year old Andreja Premium that's never given me any problems over the years. However, it's just stopped working and I need my coffee fix! When I turn it on, normally I hear the pump filling the boiler with water. No sound of the pump and there is no water coming out if the ho water...
  18. Sage Forum
    So I guess something is going out, but I can't figure out what. So, around half the time the preinfusion stage does not start the pump and instead basically only flushes what's in the grouphead. But everything works fine the moment the timer reaches the full pressure. This can be repeated by...
  19. Gaggia Forum
    Need some help, running out of ideas. I left my gaggia in the care of my parents and they well and truely trashed it. Very infrequent descaling for a year, it finally decided to pack up and water stopped flowing through the group. I stripped it, descaled everything changed all the seals...
