    I am getting a constant voltage to the element and it is not cutting out when it gets up to temperature. I have changed the Control pcb(the one in the black case under the driptray), pressure sensor and overheat stat but still not working. Any help would be a great help.

The temp on the machine is set by one of the 3 thermostats on the boiler, check resistance and replace the faulty thermostat.

Why won't my portafilter stay engaged once the water starts dripping? It flies off and sprays coffee grounds, and this started last week. Stays in place only if I wrestle with the filter handle.


It is possible that the grind you are using is too fine and causing so much back pressure that the portafilter is moving, also possible that the group gasket installed need to be replaced, I have also seen this happen with damaged screens.

Sounds like your Rancilio needs a service, this problem could be caused by the boiler not working correctly, possibly a leak from the boiler or a valve malfunction causing a drop in pressure.

Have you checked the Thermostat on the unit in the tank if it is stuck it will cause the tank to over heat and pop off the steam valve?? there should be some resettable overheat protectors as well. Has the preassure relief valve been replaced as well??

Can I regulate the temp on our machine? our Rancilio machine seems to be to be running on too high a temperature. Meaning, we barely turn the steam wand on to steam milk (after the light goes off), an


Silvia has two bimetalic switches that control the boiler temperature. One for brew water and one for steam. They are not exact and they can go bad. They are cheap and easy to replace. Just Google for Rancilio parts.

A much better fix (and more expensive) is to switch to PID control. Google for Rancilio PID control. The conversion is $250+ but once you've gone PID, you'll never go back. The temperature is exact, fast, and totally under your control.

Rancilio silvia trips circuit breaker


There is an electrical short within the machine, ...don't doubt it - the results of your experiments prove that it has an electrical fault and that your tripping circuits are doing exactly what they should to keep you and your property safe.
The machine needs servicing by a registered Rancilio electrician, don't go inside yourself, its highly likely that the part causing the tripping is dangerous and will need to be replaced.

How do I change the water pressure (bar) on my Rancilio Classe 6 E 2GR?


You will have to adjust the pump. there is an adjustment nut on the side of the pumphead, if you screw it in that gives you more pressure, and if you loosen less.

It could also be that the solenoid is of the wrong specifications, and hence not getting up to pressure.. Have them check both the temp and pressure cutouts again..
