Hey there,

 

So it seems I need a new boiler for my Gaggia baby (at the moment, there's no heat at all, but everything else works). I was going to order a new boiler from Mark @ gaggiamanualservice.com. But am a little scared as I can't find any instructions online.

 

Anyone on here done anything similar in the past?

If I had that problem, then the first thing that I'd look at and check would be the "push on" electrical connections to the two heating elements.

 

You should be able to check that you have 240V at each pair of element connections, and then check continuity of the heater elements themselves.

 

I've had a Classic that was stone cold and wouldn't heat up - but I removed the push-on connections, gently pressed them a little tighter with pliers (take the plastic/rubber boot off the end and it'll be obvious how to make them a slightly tighter fit) and it all worked perfectly again.

 

Before changing any boilers I'd certainly check the connections and elements - and make sure that it's not something much more simple to fix.


Lots of everything: machines, grinders, roaster, beans, tampers, baskets, blah, blah

However - Too much is never enough!
