    problems with Gaggia Cubika.....

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    Brand new to site, great looking site I must say.

    I have a Gaggia Cubika that I bought a few years ago and havent used it for a couple of years due to an ongoing problem.

    The problem is, when you start the coffee process, all that comes out into the cup is water, it doesnt seem to filter any of the coffee through at all.

    I have tried different grounds of coffee (and different brands) but have no idea why it keeps doing this. :(

    I really want to get it sorted and pull it out the cupboard again :)

    Any help or comments greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Is the water coming out of the spout or is it leaking from elsewhere?

    If theres coffee in the basket and your getting clear water coming out then obviously the water is not passing through the basket. Sounds like a broken group seal which is usually less than $10 to replace and doesnt require an expert to fit.

    For an average domestic coffee machine youd want to replace the group seal around every 12 months. I always like to keep a spare on hand.

    Thanks for the reply. Will have a look at it tonight and then look around for a group seal.

    Cheers

    Good luck. You might want to try Gaggias service number 1300 766 066. Or if you have a repairer nearby they might have a generic seal that fits.
