Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

Super hot water out of the group head on my Rancilio Sylvia

I replaced the thermostat I have descaled my machine. It doesn't trip my GFI outlet. Does anyone know what might be wrong. I temperature surf and the temp of my water is really inconsistent. I can't figure out what is wrong with it? I asked the techs at WLL and they are stumped and suggested I ask around. Hopefully you can help!

My Rancilio Silva is not making the water or steam hot anymore. Is it fairly easy to replace the heating element?

Your Silvia may need to be "primed."  If air gets in the intake tube (I inadvertently did this while descaling), it can cause your boiler thermostat to malfunction and superheat the water.  You can read how to prime here:

Rancilio coffee machine .no water coming out of the group head . steam coming of the group head


Hi Ewah,

If you are getting steam from the group and no water when you turn on the water button - then you may have a group blockage.

The fix depends on the type of machine you have.
If it is a commercial type - then call in a qualified coffee technician.
If it is a domestic type like rancilio sylvia, the you could try to descale - maybe too late, but worth a go.JURA descaling tablets
If when descaling, no water is coming from the group try leaving the steam tap open when asking for water.That way you may get the descaler liquid moving inside the boiler and it may clear the solenoid valve blockage.
If no joy with that you may need to replace solenoid valve.

Domestic machines need regular descaling to avoid group blockages.

What is wrong with my silvia? No coffee or water, but steam ok. Loud burring noise


Hi There,
Your coffee group is blocked, with lime or coffee oils.

Try descaling 1st Pulycaf coffee machine descaler . You will find descaler and cleaner in this rancilio silvia kit. Rancilio Silvia gasket kit . Descaling should be done every 3 months or so.

If the descaler does not work - you may have to remove the solenoid valve and descale that - not an easy fix. Takes 20 min.

Seacoast magic plus keeps tripping gfi breaker


try in different GFI outlet, if it trips the new one, the coffee maker is dangerous and you should return/replace it, it has a short.

if it doesn't, replace the GFI outlet, it is old.

I was just given a rancilio audrey and a matching rancilio grinder. However no water is coming through the group heaed, just steam. I can't make coffee! The pump hums quietly and sounds like it is running...


Remove the shower screen and screw from the head, make sure screen is clean and run head without screen in place, if you get a good flow, problem on screen, if not then problem is on the inside of the machine between top of the head and pump. You can try descaling the machine.

Steam blowing out of group head


Were you using cleancaf to descale? If so, it is not a strong enough descaler. Use Dezcal. or a Dezcal cleancaf mixture. The two work great together.

Make sure you get some descaler in the solenoid area by turning on and off the coffee button.

Hope it works out for you.

No water coming through the pump


Ok, We got a solution. We have hard water from a well. We disassembled the 3-way valve and removed the brass valve receiver. The outlet going to the coffee was plugged up solid with gunk (technical term). I used a tiny piece of wire from a wire tie and cleaned out the gunk, then soaked all the brass parts in descaler. The whole effort only took about half an hour. We used a crescent wrench, phillips screwdriver, and a 3mm allen wrench. We found the directions for the process at http://memweb.newsguy.com/~jenkins/silvia/. I think that descaling loosened a bunch of gunk from the tank and it got jammed in the tiiny hole.
