I have had this problem. The main switch on the machine burned over and I had to take it to a maintenance to put a new on. I do not know if there is a fuse on the machine. It was not in my case anyway.
The thermal fuse in the Gaggia Classic is likely tripped and it is not re-settable. The fuse has the following stamped on it: MICROTEMPSKMAHDG4A00184C I believe that is what is the culprit for all of us when the "power doesn't come on." Now, what is the rating of this fuse and where to get a replacement? The fuse is the small resistor-like, diode-like part in a clear tube mounted against the boiler, and it must be physically cut out of the line to replace it!
Usually it is the switch itself that has failed. Order the switch from your appliance repair/supply business and replace the item in the machine. A lot of these switches have plastic 'ears' that need to be pressed in to release the old part and the wire connections are usually 'push-on'. Some that are held on by a formed metal clip usually require breakage of the clip to release the part and the new switch should have a replacement clip. Hope this helps!
