How badly have I damaged my Gaggia Classic?

We have our machine on a timer, to warm up in the morning.. Not such a
good idea though when the brew switch has been left in the on
So I came downstairs to find the machine had pumped itself dry and had
the heater on with no water in the system. Needless to say now when I
switch it on all I get is a faint hum and a quiet click. I phoned
Gaggia but they've just been taken over by Phillips and apparently
someone who is being trained this week will call me back next week.
Doesn't fill me with confidence.
Any idea how much might it cost to repair? We have a £100 excess on
our house insurance, might the best bet be to claim for a new machine
and take the £100 hit? Or might I only have killed the pump and not
the boiler, and sending it off for repair to the newly trained Mr
Phillips could be the better option?
Cheers for any help.
Yours, in mourning for my coffee in the morning,
