Posted Sat Feb 1, 2014, 8:48am Subject: Re: KitchenAid Proline Dual Boiler Machine - How To Replace Switches?
Just wanted to post the pictures of the fix, the switch is from a gaggia twin classic. In order to fit it against the proline, first had to improvise and drill a hole on top of the piece where the button sits in order to insert a screw and a nut to hold the retainer. With this the switch stays on its place, however it was still a little loose, so some epoxy was used to glue it on the sides, so there will be no lateral movement either. Then I put a spring in order to have the black button touch the clear button, however there was a 2mm gap, that i filled with a jet filter that i had, however a felt pad or anything will work.
