Question about Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine

Power doesn't come on anymore

After i made a cup with my beloved Gaggia Classic, I went to clean it out and turn it off, but the power light ("0-1") was not on (even though the switch was in the "on" position), and no water went through either place when attempted.  Since then I can't get it to turn on at all.  Is there a fuse somewhere?

    My Synchrony mysteriously stopped powering up. I have ensured that the plug is in correctly and tight and I have confirmed that the outlet is good. There has been no power surge as all the other appliances and computer ate all ok. Is there are a reset button or reset sequence?

    I had steamed the milk and was switching from steam to getting water from wand to the brew mode. I think I did this all too quickly, and the switch seemed to "pop" and entire machine went dead. Checked outlets, fuses, etc several times. Is this just a switch replacement problem or more major?

Ok i have done alot of  looking up on the net and found that it is the thermal fuse and you can not reset it you have to replace it. I found someone on ebay selling two at a time. the seller name is capacitor12  look uder his name and find the microtemp he should come up. now you are going to have to find the right tempetuer and it is 184c that is the one you need. i bought one and worked great as i had the same problem with mine. so here is the link for ebay.

I determined that the thermal fuse in the Gaggia Classic that I am repairing had tripped and it is not re-settable. The fuse has the following stamped on it: MICROTEMP SKMAHD G4A00 184C 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 can I 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!

Hi,

Try to reset the thermostat fuse located on the boiler, you have to take the top off then you will see the thermostat on the boiler.

Gaggia won't prime


Put a cup under the steam wand and then open the steam valve while turning the pump on. Once you have pumped a few ounces of water out of the steam wand you can close the valve and it will start pushing water through the grouphead.

Cleaning the "showerhead" on a gaggia expresso machine


Take it off, and heat up a pan of boiling hot water and add 1 cup of vinegar to two cups of boiling water. Once the water starts to boil, shut off the stove, and put the head in the pan, cover the pan and let it sit for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Afterwards wash it really well then you will be good to go. The head does twist off

Ok gagga classic no heat from the machine


1) Hey, played too much Quake 3 and have "full stop", "colon" or "Shift" keys broken?

2) Does the cold water come out, or no water at all?

3) You haven't told where you live, but wanna an address of repair point. So, you must be a millionaire, and no matter if someone supplies you with Sydney, Tokyo, Paris, Buenos Aires address?

Gaggia classic not producing hot coffee


Two questions; is the water coming out of the head without coffee hot and can you get steam out of the wand?. If yes to both then try running the group with the portafilter in it to warm that up before making a coffee.

Gaggia espresso machine won't percolate


Does the steam outlet give water when coffee swith is engaged. If so when you get a flow going, shut the steam valve and water should eventually pout in the cup. If no water pours thru the steam pipe, it's pump failure or blocked wand. If no water at shower depending on last result same problems. Search web for solution i.e. google "jammed espresso machine"
