Question about Solis SCDIG-5000 Coffee Maker, Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I have a Solis Master 5000 digital that has worked great for a number of years. About 2 years ago I eplaced the boiler and it has continued to work well. Recently it accumulates quite a bit of liquid in the drip tray. It seems to be shorting the volume in each draw, so i presume that it is bypassed coffee that gets to the drip tray. I periodically clean the filter screen in the brew unit, but currently it seems like the holding screw does not tighten properly. Also, should the 'o' ring there be changed????? Any thoughts on whatt to do???

I solved the problem by talking to some other location that did not charge $20 for the conversation and a solution.

After cleaning my solis, the machine wont switch back on. i've checked power supply and made sure the service door is closed.

On Master 5000's there is either a fuse or reset button on the back side of the boiler. The fuse is under a clamp on the side. The reset button is between the 2 black wires (white terminals) on the back of the boiler (front of the boiler is towards the front of the machine). If you machine is 2004 or older then you might have a fuse (they made the switch in 2004).

Hi. Can you tell me is it possible to change the boiler temperature in my Solis Master 5000 (not digital). Cos the temperature of just prepared coffee is low enough that I can drink it with one sip.

Masters are usually too hot, and its unusual for one to be cool. It could be the sensor on the back of the boiler. Its the double orange wires. It might have to be replaced. When your in there check the boiler for white line by the seam of the boiler just to be sure.

Hello, how many fuse on solis master 5000, and where are they my coffee maker has stopped running and there is no reaction on. I am repairer, y see only one fuse "F1" when this coffee maker...

On some machines, there is a fuse on the side of the boiler, under a clamp. Some newer boilers have a thermostat with a reset button on the back of the boiler with 2 black wires on it. The reset button is between the wires. There is also a power filter under the grinder side that has 5 wires on it. That can keep the machine from turning on.

Solis Master 5000 is leaking water from underneath machine when not in use.

The most common problem for leaking underneath the machine is the boiler, but there can be other problems. If the water is dirty, there is a drain behind the brew unit that gets clogged with coffee residue, If its clear, its probably the boiler. If its the boiler it needs replacing. Check ebay.

Solis Master 5000 won't warm up

Sometimes when you first turn the machines on you need to run water through the wand to get them to start heating. If you have run water through the wand and it still won't heat up, you could have a bad board or sensor wire off, boiler wire off, bad element or thermostat.

No hot water

The boiler is bad or you have a bad board. I would suspect the boiler. You could have a wire off the boiler but I doubt that unless its the old pin type.

Solis Master 5000 Leaks Out Bottom in Priming

More than likely the boiler is leaking from improper descaling. Seals do not dry out but they will become hard and brittle if you descale while the machine is hot. I would say you need your boiler replaced. Another thing that will make your boiler leak is not descaling it on a regular basis.

Grinder not working on my solis master 5000

Order the replacement boiler, (be sure to empty all of the hot water from the boiler first using the hot water function on the right side of your Solis) take your time and open the machine up, the top comes off. There are 3 mounting screws that hold the boiler in place, remove them, be sure to take hold of the boiler before removing the last mounting screw. Remove and replace the wires and 2 water hoses (w/clips). The orange wires the connect to a unique plastic harness are clipped into the harness. Look closely and you'll see a little window in the plastic harness at the end of each orange wire. Use a tooth pick or a pointed device and push the metal clips thru these windows, this unlocks the wires for removal from the boiler.

Good luck and Best wishes

Try descaling your machine, because it may be clogged. Boilers heat up the water to produce steam. If descaling doesnt work you may have a boiler related problem.

Find descaler on
