Question about Gaggia Carezza Espresso Machine
I have a Gaggia Carezza espresso machine which I've used regularly for the last 2 years without any problem. This morning however, I tried to make a cup of coffee, but the light is not coming on. I tried another electrical outlet, thinking maybe something was wrong with the usual one, but still nothing. There's nothing in the manual about this. Anybody have any advice? Thanks.
I just bought a broken Carezza for my office (and hacking)-- the owner said the power switch only worked when he held it down hard.
Taking it apart, the main power switch-- a DPDT automotive-style unit-- is broken on one pole-- the wire connectors are slightly melted and darkened, and the switch has melted, discolored plastic around the metal tabs.
A new switch should bring it back to life, and I'll install a removable power cord and 15A fuse for niceness/safety-- the switch is rated for 20A at 125VAC so shouldn't have fried.

Lots of time we always think the worst our trouble is probably the plug that goes in the in the wall get a strong plug at the hardware store cut the wire and install plug its a cheap fix to be sure before cutting thr wire you would had to remove the cover and look if the power goes in the machine lot of work our choise
