Gaggia Classic won't turn on, power switch does not light up

My new machine worked fine for three weeks, but doesn't turn on since I shipped it home. Before packing it I drained the boiler, being careful to not allow anything to overheat by turning off immediately after draining pump. I carefully padded it and packed in my hard case luggage. I packed other "soft" items in case for soft packaging and nothing was tossed around or appeared damaged. I inspected the machine and noticed a small piece of plastic in the water reservoir so took the top off. The plastic was part of the small screw socket that attaches the cup warming plate to the water tank. Thus indicated a possible 'jolt' at some point, but no apparent damage, and nothing else in the suitcase was damage from the Classic, which is heavier. Are there any "fragile" parts that may have broken from the suspected jolt, or could I have burned something out while draining boiler? Any thoughts? Thanks, Mike Brunette

SOURCE: Machine Does not draw water into the boiler

I have had this same problem - it is due to an airlock in the boiler/tubes. Simple solution is to use a syringe or similar and gently force some water up the intake hose from the tank, then try the pump again.

SOURCE: Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine - will not pump water

Hi, this is so easy to fix. Firtsly unplug the machine. Then remove the two screws in the top plate so that you can have access to the internals of the machine. You will see the red pump to the left hand side at the back. Remove the two screws that hold the pump in place (use a magnetic screwdriver so that you can pull the screws out). Pull the pump up towards you and then unscrew the thin plastic pipe at the top of the pump . It is the pump that has the scale build up problem. If you the put the water tubes into the water tank and hold a cup to the top of the pump to catch the water you then have to switch the pump on. You will then start to see lots of scale come out of it and the pump will pump more water than you are expecting so be careful. Be sure to cover the internals of the machine whilst you are doing this as you don't want to get water on the electrics and electricute yourself!!! Then rebuild it! Just svaed yourself £100 in having it serviced :-)

SOURCE: Hi. My Gaggia Classic doesn't prime. The pump

I have a Gaggia Espresso maker and to prime it I have to remove the reservoir and use a tall glass next to the machine so that the hose is almost flat. It seems to **** the water up easier that way. Good luck.

Gaggia Classic won't turn on, no light at power switch


I would suspect rough handling of your suitcase, leading to some loose or broken connections inside. I recommend opening it up and looking for obvious disconnections. If you don't see any, the next step will be to use a tool like an electrical continuity tester (which can also test for a blown fuse). There is a lot of information about Gaggia Classic repair online -- just search for "Gaggia Classic repair".

My headlights won't turn on, the yellow driving lights turn on but the headlamps won't. Also the lever that controls bright lights doesn't work but the turn signal and cruise control does.


First check the headlight relay by changing it with one of the same number in the fuse panel.If it checks out ok then you have a faulty headlight switch.

My new gaggia accademia won't work. It shows error code 19. Can you help me?


Hi, Error 19 is not known by me. Sounds like something is not resetting or has failed. Try turning off the machine at the main power switch and unplug it from the wall for a few minuites. Remove the dreggs draw and drain tray and replace them before you plug it back in. This will allow the machine to reset. Dazza REPAIRER

No power to Gaggia Syncrony Logic


Re the Gaggia no power problem, the machine does have a re set button, 2 in fact the boiler unit must be removed and the two reset switches are between the sender units (brown in colour).
After disconecting the power source open the machine (top off)The three alan head screws that retain the boiler (front of the machine) unit must be removed it can be lifted clear to gain access to the bottom of the unit where the reset buttons are.
This will save hundreds of dollars in shipping and service fees.
DIY takes about 10-20 min well worth it.
Take care when doing this opperation 240 volts can kill.

No water coming through brewing head


Hi there, I had a very similar problem with my Gaggia Classic. Worked fantastic every day for two years then one day the brew head was reduced to a very slow drip. I rang some Gaggia service agents and they all said it needs a service ($100-$150). The last one I called told me to descale it before bringing it in for a service as it was probably scale buildup. I told them it wasn't a gradual thing - it just suddenly stopped and they said what happens is the scale builds up to a point where a piece breaks off and clogs the pipeworks leading to the brewing head. So, I used the instructions outlined here: http://www.coffeemachine.com.au/descalin... At then end of the second flush through the steam head, I closed the steam vale to try and push the descaling solution back through the brew head (just dripped through again) then left it for 10 minutes again. Did the same the third time and it went to drip again for about five seconds then bingo - burst back to full flow. Hope this helps.
