Rancilio silvia trips circuit breaker

Every time I turn it on, it trips the circuit breaker of whatever circuit it is plugged into. This is true even when nothing else is plugged into the circuit. It also tripped 3 different circuit breakers that work perfectly with other appliances.

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.

Sorry to say but your boiler element is ruptured and needs to be replaced. You can do an ohms check across the element terminals and if its good you will get a reading of 12 to 16 ohms.

How do you reset the thermostats on the rancilio?


Safety thermostat for rancilio silvia is on the boiler and has a red button on top.Press this button down and you should be ok.
Other thermostats cannot be reset - just replaced.

If the boiler temperature exceeds 165 degrees Celsius, this thermostat will trip, cutting power off from the element. This is done to try to prevent element damage due to overheating.
