Gaggia Accademia: Stuck In Standby Mode

Learn what to do if your Gaggia Accademia becomes stuck in standby mode or will not fully power on.

Stuck In Standby Mode

  • If the machine does not come out of standby mode after pushing the standby button or if it turns itself off, the machine will need to come in for service.
  • Make sure to press on the power button firmly when attempting to bring the machine out of standby.
  • It may be worth trying to let the machine dry out for 48 hours with the front door open, in case the machine was exposed to moisture.
  • Alternatively, the standby button itself may be getting stuck.
    • Power off the machine from the switch on the back, and unplug the machine
    • Use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to rub the button and the surrounding area while pressing the button a few times to clean it.
    • Let the machine dry for 24 hours before turning it back on to see if this has resolved the issue.

Failure of normal wear and tear items such as group gaskets, seals, and shower screens are not covered under warranty.  Issues due to scale build-up or lack of maintenance are not covered.
