Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

Water is not coming thru the hose

I have had my Silvia about 5 years. I haven't used in over a year. Today I turned it on and tried to prime the pump. No water is going thru the hoses from the resevoir. Everything else seems to be fine. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Have an Astra G.A.P. espresso machine and have replaced the pump. New pump will not pump water thru machine.


Sometimes a dry pump will; be a devil to prime up and start running. You may have to find a way to force the water into the pump. On the machines I worked on I had a hose the correct size to engage into the water tank socket on the machine. I would fill the hose up (about 2 feet) and blow as hard as possible while running the pump.

Hi I have a Starbucks Barista Italia Digital that has been sitting in storage for over a year. When I try to prime the pump, it makes a noise like it is trying, but no water comes out. I have tried...


You could have a seized water pump if you haven't been descaling regularly. Take the pump out and disassemble, clean, reassemble. Work carefully as there are several small parts.

I have my Silvia for 3 years and for the last couple week, it gives me espresso watery with no crema. I havent changed anything for the last 3 years. Please help!


It definitely needs preventive maintenance once a year. There could be a couple of issues causing watery espresso. You could have a clogged shower screen or cracked porta-filter basket. They bypass valve from the pump could be leaking causing low pressure (check this by pulling a shot and seeing if water continually flows back into the tank via one of the water hoses).

Rancillio Expresso Machine won't pump water through. Makes lound noise.


Hi There are a couple of things. 1. Your pump is not primed. Open the steam knob and push the middle switch. 2. Your intake hose is pinched or not connected to the pump, or your intake hose is not in the water tank.

Unit fails to prime> have followed instructions. Is there a reset button?


Hi
You might want to check you hoses that connect to the pump and make sure that both of them are in the water tank. They will come loose from the pump and the pump won't prime.

No water ever makes it through the pump


You have to prime the pump.. Hit the water button and open the steam knob.

If no water goes through the steam wand I would check for a clogged water line.
