Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Water does not heat

All lights are functioning (on button, steam button, etc.) but the heater is not functioning at all. Could this be an internal fuse or the element burned?

Yes there is an internal thermostat high-heat cut off. Take the top off your machine. There is a reset button on the front side of the boiler tank about third of the way down.

Why won't the steam function work on my brand-new out of the box DeLonghi Magnifica Espresso Machine?


The steam heater is probably not working. Check your manual to see if there is a fuse or reset switch for it. If that doesn't work, return the machine to where you got it for an exchange.

I have the same problem. Mine is 2 yrs old. Boiler is OK, just no steam. I opened it up and the controller board has a blown elecolytic cap. However, after replacing this still no steam. I would guess it needs a new controller board. I will try Breville...

Replace the thermostat for the steamvalve, it is not keeping the element on long enough or you need to descale boiler because there is not enough room for water.

Boiler light never goes off


Hi
If you have an ohms meter, do a check of the element in the boiler. The reading should be between 12 and 16 ohms. If you don't have any reading, you have a bad element and need to replace the boiler.

Can't get milk to foam


Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!

Gaggia Classic - No Heat, Hot Water or Steam


There is a thermostat on the boiler disconnect and check to see if you can get a reading using an ohmsmeter, if no reading replace the thermostat. If you get a good reading then disconnect the element and check for resistance.

Steamer


If the machine also did not work again, you have blown an internal fuse or the boiler heater has failed. If lots of steam came from inside the machine when it went bang, you have probably blown a hose, or a safety valve blew off because the heater failed to regulate temperature. Good luck, Saeco are expensive people!
