This product is our quick and easy power switch mod for the RI9480 Gaggia Classic. It's ONLY relevant to EU style Classic 2019+ machines (typically model RI9480) that has a spring loaded power switch as standard.

It replaces this standard spring loaded momentary rocker switch - that uses the eco timer board to only turn on for 20 minutes - with a proper on/off rocker switch (as used in the Gaggia Classic Pro in the US) that gives the same on/off functionality as every previous model of traditional Classic has enjoyed.

With this mod (which can be fitted in around 5-10 minutes, and involves a new switch along with some additional wiring / rewiring) you can turn the machine on - and turn the machine off. You don’t need a functioning timer board - so if yours has failed and you have to hold the existing switch down in order to get the power light to come on, then this will also ‘fix’ that.

You can now just leave the machine switched on - and control it using an external WiFi switch if you want to. It’ll come straight on when the WiFi switch turns it on, and it’ll go off when your WiFi switch turns it off.    Obviously this product DOES NOT include any necessary wifi smartswitch to support this functionality.

Installing this switch mod removes the need for the "EU Timer Disable" cable (which simply disables the timer).

This kit contains:

  • 0/1 rocker switch
  • Suitable additional wiring with fully insulated connectors
  • Reusable cable ties for installation
  • Installation instructions

Switching the machine on to warm, getting distracted for a while with something else and coming back to find a turned off, cold machine, was really annoying. This kit made things much easier, I turn on the machine and leave it to get hot without worrying about the timer. Also this kind of switch gives you the option to connect the machine to a wifi plug and turn it on from your smartphone or using a timer before you wake up. Awesome mod, with very clear step by step instructions. No need of electronics experience or special tools.
