It is possible that the solenoid on the group head is blocked, or the coil is damaged, or the metering jet on the top of the head is blocked. Since there is no click then I think the coil might be the problem. Disconnect the black electrical cover with screw in the middle, lift up and using an ohms meter check for resistance between left and right curved prongs. The flat one is the ground so ignore that one. If you have resistance, then remove the 14mm discharge chute, then the nut, washer and large flat washer and slide out the coil. DO NOT REMOVE THE SOLENOID FROM THE HEAD UNLESS YOU HAVE BREW VALVE GASKET TO REPLACE THE OLD ONES. TURN OFF THE WATER AT SUPPLY VALVE. MAKE SURE MACHINE IS COLD. Using a wrench remove the silver part of the solenoid body from the brass part connected to the head. Check the 2 holes in there and make sure they are clear, you can briefly turn on the water to see if it flows out of there careful it be a powerful stream. Reassemble and test group head.

Hi! I have a Rancilio epoca DE 2 group machine and the antivacuum valve spurts water as the machine is heating up. ow can I fix this? Please advise

Your boiler is flooding because the water level probe is not behaving properly. The machine thinks it needs water.

At the end of initial pressure-up after first turning my Epoca on in the morning, the pressure goes past 'normal' until it blows the escape valve. What is wrong? Thanks. Matt

The vent valve is stuck in the open position, leave the steam wand open, while the machine is heating until you hear it hissing, then close steam wand and machine should heat up properly. Replace the vent valve as soon as possible.

BLINKING BUTTONS OF DE2 AFTER REFILLING After refilling water to the boiler of the machine. automatic buttons blink. indicating No. 3 at the board.

Machine is not able to get water fast enough, there might be a blockage in the inlet solenoid or the filter, and the safety is turning of the machine, because it is not at operating pressure, that is the only thing that comes to mind.

Water doesn't come out from showerhead once the button is pressed - can hear the water pump going, the top of machine is warm so boiler is functioning.

Does water flow without the portafilter in place, if yes then check grind, if no then remove screw,filter and diffuser and press brew button, if water flows clean filter, if no water then the micro jet in the group head is blocked or the solenoid is clogged.
