Rancilio Epoca group head water temperature problem

The temperature of the water coming out of the group head is 184 degrees and after 15 seconds goes down to 165 degrees. The steam wand makes steam just fine. Is there and adjustment for the water temperature of the group head? If not, what could be the problem?

SOURCE: water will not come through the steam wand

I had the same problem. I took the steam wand off, and checked for steam out of the unit. It was OK, so I stuck a thin wire up through the steam wand and dislodged what look like pieces of a green washer or O-ring.
In short...the wand was plugged.

SOURCE: no water through group head

Hi
More than likely your 3 way valve is stuck. It is located behind the front panel and when the 2 screws are removed it slides to the right. Unplug your machine before working on it. The 3 way valve is on the left and you can remove the dispersion tube on the bottom(unscrews) 14mm nut holds the solenoid on and you can slide the solenoid down the shaft. The big nut at the top of the shaft will unscrew and there you will fin the solenoid inside with a big spring. If its not stuck it will slide out and you probably need a new 3 way valve, but more than likely its stuck. Some times just tapping the nut on something hard will unstick the solenoid. Clean good and reinstall.

Your boiler is flooding because the water level probe is not behaving properly. The machine thinks it needs water.

Rancilio coffee machine .no water coming out of the group head . steam coming of the group head


Hi Ewah,

If you are getting steam from the group and no water when you turn on the water button - then you may have a group blockage.

The fix depends on the type of machine you have.
If it is a commercial type - then call in a qualified coffee technician.
If it is a domestic type like rancilio sylvia, the you could try to descale - maybe too late, but worth a go.JURA descaling tablets
If when descaling, no water is coming from the group try leaving the steam tap open when asking for water.That way you may get the descaler liquid moving inside the boiler and it may clear the solenoid valve blockage.
If no joy with that you may need to replace solenoid valve.
230V 9W PARKER SOLENOID
Domestic machines need regular descaling to avoid group blockages.

I have rancilio epoca e2. One side is not pulling a high enough temperature thus not good crema. Other side works fine


The only thing that comes to mind is the metering jet on the group as well as the reducers on the tubes bringing water into the group.

I am trying to get the sight glass out of a two group epoca. It looks like the metal nipples extend into the glass at both ends with no way to move the glass up or down to free it up. I don't want to break...


If the epoca is the same as mine, the sight glass is made from a plastic material and if you pull it from the middle it will bend and come away from the nipples without much trouble..

Water doesn't come out from showerhead once the button is pressed - can hear the water pump going, the top of machine is warm so boiler is functioning.


Does water flow without the portafilter in place, if yes then check grind, if no then remove screw,filter and diffuser and press brew button, if water flows clean filter, if no water then the micro jet in the group head is blocked or the solenoid is clogged.

Rancilio epoca - heating element continue to stick on


It's the thermostat for certain.

Te release valve is put there it be sure the tank pressure doesn't get too high such as to cause a steam explosion/rupture of the tank.
