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. Reassembled it and seemed to be working fine. I pulled a few shots and steamed some milk then in the middle of pulling the 6th shot the flow dropped to almost nothing. I started over and pulled another shot just fine. Next day pulled 3 shots and steamed some milk, go for a 4th and flow stops again in the middle of the shot. Now no water comes from group with or without the filter attached and nothing from the steam arm either (at brew or steaming temp). I suspected no water was reaching the boiler. Tried running the pump without the pipe attached (to the boiler) nothing is coming out, in my head this means something is wrong? Water should be flowing from the pump outlet right? Maybe i dont understand how it works. I've stripped it all again, soacking all components again, pocked with needles in the all the holes I can't see any scale I thought a chunk might have disloged and got stuck somewhere but doesnt look like it. Pump still vibrates, if it was dying what should i be looking for? Appreciate any suggestions.
Morning folks, Advice please. My machine is turned on using a time switch so it's nice and hot by the time I get out of bed. However today, the machine did not heat up. The PID is stuck saying 20/21 deg. When I open the steam, hot water or brew switches nothing happens at all. From the lack of hot water and steam output this I gather there is no temp/pressure in the boilers thus no flow (correct?). However the pump doesn't work either. Tried a standard computer reset (turn it off and on again) and nothing. What I did notice is that a few seconds after turning the machine on I can her something switch (same sound as a trip switch). This happens each time. Before I spend the weekend opening her up and searching blindly, I would appreciate it if anyone knows what this is likely to be from the description. If there are multiple things to try, what are they and in what order? Many thanks in advance.
