Subject: Gaggia Coffee Repair - No Power - for sale?
I have a well waintained Gaggia coffee. It recently stopped powering
up (hit the power switch and no red light or power). I replaced a
thermal sensor of some type on the top of the boiler with no luck. I
recently lost my multi-meter so I can't really try to troubleshoot
myself. Does anyone know what are the common problems that would
cause this? I heard the power switch itself... or maybe thermal
fuse??

I really don't have a lot of time these days so I am happy to sell
this to any reasonable offer. Everything is well maintained and
descaled. The steam valve is new. The white exterior is in 5/10
condition with rust spots under the drip tray.

Before chucking it, check the obvious - fuse hasn't gone (the one in
the plug or circuit) and that the power switch itself hasn't failed.
I multi meter capable of testing the switch contacts costs virtually
nothing these days.

If this is the original Coffee (steam valve knob in the front) and not
working someone might be in need of it for the cost of shipping. If
it's a two-switch model, same thing. If it's a three-switch all steel
Coffee you can figure about $30 - max.
