Customer Question
My Gaggia Accademia was due...
My Gaggia Accademia was due for descaling so I followed the instructions and got to a point where it states "Fill the carafe half way with water and insert it in brewing position. I did this and hit the okay button and it will not advance. I have unplugged the machine multiple times but it always comes back to this same spot on the descaling menu and will not advance
