Subject: Auber PID on a new Gaggia Classic
 

Hello,
Has anyone wired a new Gaggia Classic with a Auber Brew/Steam PID?
I purchased one this past week, and the wiring instructions on their CD did not match the wires in my Classic.
The file attached is the front switch wiring for my Classic.
I intend to call them Monday.
Just wondering if anyone here has wired a new Classic recently?
Thanks.

Pete

Check in over at the Gaggia Group in my signature.  My PID is from Jim Gallt, so I can't answer your questions, but I know several members of the Gaggia Users Group have Classics and have used the Auber PIDs, so I'm sure one of them can give you some help.   Of course, Auber will most likely help you out anyway, but GUG is always a good resource if you have a Classic.

I did not see anything on the Gaggia doc.  Sent you an e-mail and it just bounced back.  How can I help?

Found your question, I think, on Yahoo.

"Aubers instructions say to tap the hot wire to the main power switch on the
front panel. Their illustration shows it to be terminal #9 with two BLUE wires.
However #9 has 2 white wires, one to #4, and one to the brew stat."

I did tap there, On #9 and it was white not grey.  Auber's diagram showed grey, but looked like the wires went to the same places.  I checked it with a volt meter and it was the correct connection.  Auber may need to update to new Gaggia color codes again.

Hi,
don't know why my attachment was blank. Ummmm....
Yes, that was my post on Yahoo Gaggia Users Group. I'm not that savy when it comes to electrical stuff. I know just enough to get me in trouble! :-)
What confuses me is the hot wire to the main switch has to be the grey to # 8 terminal since that wire comes from the line-in terminal on the back of the machine.
The #9 terminal has two white wires, one going to #4 terminal on the steam switch, and one going to the brew stat.
You're right about Auber needing to update the wiring color codes for the Classic.
I'm sure they'll be able to help me out.

Brew Switch                             Steam Swtich                                                            Power Switch
#1 Red to #6                           #4 White to #2                                                        #8 Grey to Line-in
#2 White to #4                        #5 Blue to Brew Stat      #6 Red to #1                     #9 White to #4
#3 Grey to Steam Stat                                                      Red to pump                      White to Brew stat
  Grey to Element                                                           #7 Red to 3-way               #10 Brown to 3-way
                                                                                                                               Brown to Element

I have a new Gaggia Classic.  To power the PID, I used the Blue lead at the case back power input with a piggyback spade.  In front, the Grey is power, the other leg of AC in from the back input.  If you were to hook up to Grey, then you are "on" but not switched, continuous on, just if you picked up both wires at the input in the rear.  The White line, 9, is the switched on line.  That will switch on the PID with machine power up.  If I read the response correctly on Yahoo, Tex wires the PID to stay on, not switched.

I still have the Gaggia wiring diagram on my PDF.

Yes, Tex has his wired to be on continuously. I would like it wired so the PID comes on when I switch the machine on. Don't want continuous on.
Where can I find your wiring diagram?
Sure do appreciate your help and explanation on this. Thanks...
I know I'll get this right! :-)

Not sure what you need.  Did you buy a kit?  Did you get instructions and if so, PDF?  You mentioned Aubers wiring but different color wires, so you probably have the same pdf as I do, kit GG.  I gave you the switched info, use the 9 white and piggyback in there for the switched connection.

Yes, bought the kit, GGS.
I will use the switched info you described.
It's a little different than the Kit-GG because it includes the Steam control also.
