Stuck In Standby Mode
If your Gaggia Accademia is stuck in standby mode, and will not fully power on, keep reading to learn what you should do.
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 use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol to rub the button and surround area to clean it.
