Subject: Gaggia Brew Switch ready light
I have a Gaggia Espresso Deluxe that has been most satisfactory for
the last year and a half. however, a couple of weeks ago, the green
pilot light on the brew switch failed. (This machine has 2 rocker
switches --one for brew and one for steam--and the light serves both
as ready light. Both switches are in one module.) The folks at Whole
Latte Love were helpful in trying to diagnose the problem. I
purchased a new brew/steam switch and got it installed and still no
light. (Wires were correctly placed on the new switch.)

They suggested a new brew thermostat and sent me one complimentary
since the rocker sawitch did not solve the problem. Still no light. I
returned the switch for them to test and it works in the shop. I also
descale every 2 months and use Brita filtered water. The water temp
for brewing, as well as the steam temp for foam, is the same as before
the light failed .. I am at a loss as to what to do now other than use
it without the pilot light.

Any one have any suggestions........

thanks -- that's my thought too. However, I visually checked all
wires for connection and they are ok. I don't have any meter to take
measurements.
