Re-wiring Gaggia Classic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Help! Does anyone have an idiot-proof guide or preferably photos of how to rewire a Gaggia Classic? The drawings available online are pretty indecipherable and don't seem to reflect my machine.... I took my machine apart to thoroughly clean and am convinced I labelled all the wires correctly but now when I switch the machine on it short circuits the whole house.  Aargh! Any and all help most gratefully received!

Not sure if this will help but for what it’s worth:

Thanks very much! Actually found the solution on another thread on this forum but helpful to know the wiring wasn't actually wrong!

Sounds like you had a damp heating element?
