Espresso: Gaggia Paros
Posted Fri Mar 8, 2013, 5:56pm Subject: Where to find a power switch for a Gaggia Paros
After about 15 years and a boiler rebuild a few months ago, my prized Gaggia Paros has decided that the power switch won't stay on (pic attached). It's the 120V version and the problem is that it doesn't come on when pushed down - you have to hold it down, so looks like the spring has gone.
I have searched everywhere and can't find a retailer with a spare part. Anyone have any suggestions? If I can't find a replacement switch I guess I could hardwire it to always be on, and find a power cord with a switch, but I'd rather get it back working normally.
