    Since I changed my boiler on my Rancilio Silva, the water seems to flow too quickly. I grind my coffee to the finest and tried tamping hard, less hard etc... any suggestions or I should simply have it serviced?

  1. check the coffe filter>> it could be teard up and leaking(check it carefuly it is hard to see sometimes)
  2. check the pressure you get from group. 7 - 9 bar pressure you should get to handle. if it is biger than check by pas valve and adjust the pressure, also check up boiler security valve(security valve for water for coffee)

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.

Try to redo what you have been doing, but set it to the extremes to see if everything is functioning. If you set the grind say to 4, it should come out very slow or maybe not at all.

Check the shower screen to make sure it is not damaged.

Fill portafilter to rim then tamp to fill ring in basket.
