I have just been given a used Syncrony Compact Digital which is in a bit of a state. I have managed to get it working and run the descaling program but as i'm a bit of a novice with these things i don't know how to sort the current problem. When I press the button on the machine for a small espresso the machine grinds the beans and appears to do everything normally until it come to the espresso going into the cup. I get a very small amount of espresso actually in the cup but when I open the door the drip tray is full of it. What is going on and why?? Please help!!
Original thread and fix by randymir Here Gaggia Compact - No Power I have a Gaggia Digital Compact that I've had for a couple of years. It's been a great machine up until a few days ago. The machine was on and we made latte and left the machine on. I went back a couple of hours later and the machine had no power. I', pretty technical, so proceeded to take it apart looking for any type of fuse. None that I could find. O also checked the thermistor and it's fine too. It appears the main board is getting power, so I'm think it might be something on the main board, but can't be certain. Is there a fuse I'm missing? Is there something else I should be looking for? Finally, where can I pick up parts like a circuit board? All I can find are standard parts and no circuit boards to speak of. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Randy ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Lee, I think I fixed it. I'm going to put it back together and see what happens. In the diagram I have in an earlier post there were two thermostats. They are two round brown devices. If you recall I was getting power into one end but nothing on the other. I was poking around today and realized there were two nipples (so to speak) that were coming out of the middle. They appeared loose, so I started playing with them and realized I could push them in. They appear to be a small breaker of sorts. Once I did that and turned it on the display started working, so next step put it all back together and see if I didn't ruin something in the process. Here are the diagrams: http://partsguru.com/user/Wiring%20SyncronyCompactDigital_V120_Sae0440.01_Rev00.pdf
This is a long shot, but I've exhausted every other avenue... I sent my Gaggia Syncrony Compact Digital away for repairs & service in early June. I received it back last week and the machine is still broken - with a whole difference set of problems. When I turn the machine on, the digital display lights up, but there is no text When I first turned the machine on, once it had heated up it immediately poured a shot of coffee (without me telling it to do so) Now, when I press any of the buttons on the panel, nothing happens. I have been trying to contact Gaggia UK on the phone (01422330295) since 9am on Thursday 30th July. Each time I call, I hear a pre-recorded message informing me that you are experiencing a high volume of calls, before my call is terminated by the phone system. There is no option for me to simply wait in queue until my call can be answered! I have also sent - A fax at approx 12:15pm on Thursday 30th July An email at approx 10:30am on Friday 31st July A fax this morning at approx 11am An email this morning at approx 11am . I have not received any response and am becoming increasingly frustrated and annoyed. Neither House of Fraser or the independent repair centre at Maidstone have any other contact phone numbers (aside from 01422330295). In fact, when I spoke to the guy at Maidstone he indicated that he had received calls from other Gaggia customers reporting the same problems contacting the company. Does anyone have any info that could help me - any other contact numbers for Gaggia or service centres that might be able to repair the problem (Maidstone can only do mechanical repairs).
