Issue with power button on my Gaggia classic


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I’m having an issue with my Gaggia Classic and was hoping someone here could help.

 

It’s one of the newer (push button rather than switch) models and now it won’t stay on when I push the power button in.

 

It does power on when I push the button in - so there is power getting to it - it just goes back off once I take my finger away.

 

I took the top of it off for a cursory glance but couldn’t see any glaringly obvious issues like a broken or disconnected wire or anything burnt out etc. The one thing I did notice is that there’s a small spark on one of the connections to the power button when I release it while trying to turn it on.

 

Given that there’s power getting to it I’m assuming the issue is within the mechanism of the button itself - or could there be something else going on?

 

If it is the button I could probably just replace it myself... and if so, would it be possible to replace it with the old-fashioned switch instead? The whole auto-off feature is a real pain, and given that it forces you to push the power button multiple times per usage it’s no surprise that the bloody thing has worn out on me already.

Hi, I realise this is quite an old post now, but did you ever find a solution for this problem? I’ve had my Gaggia Classic (2019 model) for only 3-4 months now and my button now no longer stays on when clicked down.

And this one too...! 

 

Thanks for sharing this. It’s comforting knowing I’m not the only one with this problem! Seems a few people who have bought a Classic recently have had similar issues. Think I’ll get in touch with Gaggia and arrange a pick up like yourself. Thanks again 😁

Either do a warranty return on it, and get the eco power board replaced... or look at this:

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

However - Too much is never enough!

You have my sympathies, especially as Gaggia Direct won't be able to arrange a pick up until next week and it's a BH weekend. Call them NOW!

Meanwhile, I don't see why what you suggest wouldn't work, and it's very unlikely to fry anything. Obviously, don't leave the machine in that state unattended.
