    My Silvia will not heat the coffee. The steam works fine, the pressure to pump the water is fine, but there is no heat for the coffee. i have tried to reset the red button, but no change.

    There is no heat, not even warm, when the coffee is run by itself. Even the heat beside the main switch does not go on to indicate the unit is heating up. The light does go on if I want to just do steam.

If there is steam in the machine, the only other problem would be if the portafilter was cold and you are brewing into metal or glass demitasse that has not been heated.

    Remove the connections on the element and get ohms reading to see if element is damaged or not. Also check resistance on all dthermostats.

No Hot Water


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.

Rancilio Silvia indicator light not turning off


Hi

There is a reset button inside on the front side of the boiler (you have to take the top of the machine off. There are 4 screws and remove the water tank). It is located between 2 black wires and is a red button. Push it in and test. There is also another problem that you might have. If the brew thermostat is bad it won’t heat. To test for this, push the steam switch and wait 15 seconds. Then open the steam knob and push the middle button and see if the water is warm. If it is then you need a new brew thermostat. That is the thermostat that has the red dot on the top. It sets on top of the boiler next to the steam thermostat. If you take the top off, make sure that the machine is unplugged.
If none of these things work check the heating element with an ohms meter. The reading in the terminals should be from 12 to 16 ohms. If no reading the elements is bad and you have to replace the boiler.

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


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