Gaggia espresso maker has broken down

The question: is it worth trying to get it fixed or must it RIP? Someone we talked to said that essentially it would cost as much to fix as it would to get a new one. Well, we've only had this one for 3/4 years and we've been pretty good on the upkeep. My husband thinks it's the sensor that's broken down -- apparently it's pricey to replace. We paid about $400 for this so we're pretty understandably upset about and are sad to think of a latte-less life. (My husband is currently unemployed so no replacement over the short term.) Any advice appreciated.
