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.

Where is the reset button on the rancilio audrey?

Once you get the top off, there are 2 thermostats on the top of the boiler. Your looking for the thermostat that is on the front of the boiler with the red button . Push the red button. If that didn't work check the ohms reading on the element. It should read 12 - 16 ohms. If it doesn't replace the element. Also did you try to turn on the steam button? Sometimes the thermostat with the red dot on it goes bad. If it will steam just replace the brew thermostat.

Rancilio miss silvia dispenses cold water

If there is steam in the machine, the only other problem would be if the portafilter was cold and you are brewing into metal or glass demitasse that has not been heated.

Rancilio silvia

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).
