Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
Have dad my silvia for a few days now with know problems. However, recently and suddenly it has started having problems with extraction.
The shot dribbles out very slowly (if at all), and only after ~10 seconds or so. Even when running for up to a minute, I only end up with a very small amount.
The steam wand seems fine - seems to produce hot/flowing water and steam.
Tried doing a thermometer reset - no luck. Also tried the coffee+water buttons 4-cup flush.
Perhaps this is a portafilter issue? Or something to do with pressure?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Try running the gro;up without the portafilter in place, what does the water flowq look like: is it a nice strong flow or barely a dribble. If if is barely a dribble, backwash machine with purocaff and check shower screen, that may be clogged. If you have a nice flow then try adjusting the grind on the coffee grinder.
