    The espresso boiler produces a cool and clear brew; the machine top does not heat at all; the froth boiler works just fine. What to do?

It more likely is the automatic boiler shut off if the boiler overheats. Just reset the boiler.

Youve probably run your boiler dry and blown your thermostat/s. You'll need to have them replaced. You may get away with only having to replace one. It will cost about $80(AUS) to have done or less if you source the parts and do it yourself (not recommended).

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.

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.
