Subject: Older Baby Gaggia Power switch problems
Hi All -

I have an older metal-body Gaggia Baby with the power switch on the
top. The action is very squishy in the switch, and often it just
rotates and will never click on - I'm guessing it needs to be replaced,
unless someone has experience with this and it can be repaired somehow.
I got the machine recently, so I don't know how it's progressed.
Sometimes it will rotate and click, sometimes it will just rotate....

Can someone give me advise on a fix or replacement? I have had trouble
finding the part (WLL, Espresso Part NW both said they couldn't
help....)

Thanks!

For many years, one of the standard sources for parts for older Gaggia
machines was:
http://electra-craft.com/repairs.htm

I would phone them.
