Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
The rig wand on our commercial rancilio does not work suddenly. The knob continues spinning to no effect. The wand is now cold though the attachment piece inside the machine is still hot. Is there an easy fix? What are potential problems?

I had the same problem. I took the steam wand off, and checked for steam out of the unit. It was OK, so I stuck a thin wire up through the steam wand and dislodged what look like pieces of a green washer or O-ring.
In short...the wand was plugged.

you should take out the knob first, than you try to disasembke the SHAFT of valve from the valve body, in this types(small espresso coffe machines) usualy producer use conical valve, without seals she close metal to metal, when you get out the SHAFT you will see one line on the conical end. for repairing it will be enough to visit one metal vorkery where they will take a small amount of brass from end and polish it. then you put it back and work again with your machine.
ps: notice you only polish the SHAFT , dont let them to short the more than 0.5 mm
