  1. Hi everyone, interested to know if you’d be able to tell me if the Gaggia classic ive found on eBay is a genuine pre-2015 model? The seller has a couple listed, and has also sold quite a few recently, and considering I’ve heard they aren’t all that common anymore, I found it strange he had so many to sell. when I messaged him asking how he came about having so many to sell, I was bluntly told “what does it matter?” Thanks everyone! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F202343081356
  2. Hi, First post here and first Gaggia machine. Loving the machine so far even though it did highlight that I need a new grinder, the Bodum Bistro just wasn't good enough even with the 0.8mm offset top burr holder - ROK manual grinder does the job though. Anyway, I notice a lot of folk are sticking card in to the power switch to hold it in keeping the machine from automatically turning off after 9 minutes or so. This isn't great, if the switch has backed off a bit there's a chance of a poor contact which could mean high resistance meaning lots of heat and or fire. My solution, which you can do two ways: 1. Swap the power switch with the extraction/pump switch. 2. Buy an extraction/pump switch (approx £13?) and change it over with the power switch. The only problem with the first option is that you have to hold in the button for your entire pull/extraction... But I actually prefer this option, and, it saves me another £13. The quirk with swapping or exchanging the switch is: 1. One press (switch in IN position) will turn the machine on and it'll stay on, effectively disabling automatic timeout. 2. Another press (switch now in OUT position) will keep the machine on with the 9 minute automatic timeout enabled (operates like normal); unless, the 9 minute timeout has lapsed from 1st switching on, if this is the case the machine will power off. If within 9 minutes of 1st switching on,these two apply: 3. 3rd press (switch in IN position) operates same as first press. 4. 4th press (switch in OUT position) will turn machine off. Hope that helps. Gives you both options of having the 9 min timer enabled or disabled. Simplified: 2015 Operation - Press button twice. (Timer enabled, auto off) Pre 2015 Operation - Press button once and leave on for 9+ minutes. (2nd press turns off machine) P.s. The switch covers do come off and can be swapped over so they identify the switch function normally. P.p.s. Both types of switches are rated for the same voltage & current. Cheers, Kev

  4. Ordered and received one of these new listings on Amazon (now down to £185). I can confirm it has the aluminium boiler, solenoid, metal spouted portafilter etc. Perfect crema baskets annoyingly, but that's not a huge issue. Edit: NB - this post is about a newly purchased *2014* model, ordered after a new (re)listing on amazon after ~1month of unavailability.
  5. Right then Lid off then whip the switches out the front to give you some room. Easy two plastic clips held in by a little metal bracket behind on inside of wall. Then a T10 torque driver and undo the little silver plate. A longer T10 which has a magnetic end helps here. Take the plastic end off the Gaggia wand. Wiggle the wand through the hole. I had to give the wand a very tiny bend, really tiny to get this through. Next you have to release the three little clips in the black ball end to open it and separate in two. I forgot to take pics of this bit but the video on page 4 of this thread shows it perfectly! The Rancilio wand then is replaces the Gaggia one. I kept the Gaggia little rubber O ring in as it was fatter so deemed it would be more steam tight. Slide the bottom of the ball joint up the Rancilio wand and it just clips back in. Thread your new Rancilio wand back down through the hole into position. Screw the little silver top plate back on over the ball joint. This is probably the most fiddly bit of the job due to space and not taking the outer shell off but still pretty easy and I have big hands.
  6. In theory the 2015 model Gaggia Classic would take a PID kit - much as the good old version does. The boiler uses similar thermostats and will undoubtedly have similar switches, controls and power connections (though all probably driven via this new "Energy Saving" board). Anyway - in theory my Classic PID Kit may possibly work on the 2015. However... I've never seen or touched a 2015 model, and I have no idea if there would be any call for such a kit. So - Could you comment below if you would (possibly) be interested in a 2015 Classic PID kit - either now or in the future. AND (The possible offer) : If anyone fairly local to me (in Swindon/Wilts or Reading/Berks ideally) has a 2015 Classic that they would be willing to lend me for a week or two so that I could explore the options (and if viable use the machine to produce a new installation guide for my kit) - then I would give this person a completed kit free of charge. (Obviously I'd ensure that it was given back to the owner in the same condition that it was given to me in - so if any of my fiddling breaks anything, I fix it!) Any other thoughts or comments appreciated.
