I have a Gaggia Titanium and my brew unit got stuck and I followed your steps to remove it and it works for a bit then when i power off the unit for a day or so the brew unit jams up again, it has done this multiple times. do i need to replace the brew unit. I have about 1100 cups on the machine.
Kenneth - Have you lubricated the brew unit recently?
Click on the link. If lubricating the BG does not help I would recommend sending the machine in for a repair. There may be an issue with the small drive motor.
