SL 70/90 Brew Head Gasket Replacement Time 1 to 2 hrs Tools # 2 allen wrench # 1 Phillips screw driver # 2 Phillips screw driver # 13mm wrench First unplug the machine. Next remove the screw in the top back of the machine. Push the top forward with your fingers. This unlocks the top and it can be placed behind the machine with the wire connected. Next rotate the steam knob counter clockwise till it stops. Inside next to the micro switch there is a brown cam. On the backside of the cam is the #2 allen screw. Loosen this screw and the rotate the steam knob clockwise until it is removed. Now remove the clip on the steam manifold that holds the steam wand. There may be a plastic tie that is securing the clip. Cut it. Pull out the steam wand and let it rest on the bottom cover. Next remove the 4 large screws that hold the cover plate around the brew head. This will allow the cover plate to drop down and swivel on the steam wand, exposing the nuts that hold the boiler on the bottom metal plate. The nuts that hold the boiler on are # 8. Before you loosen the nuts you need to remove the water inlet nut on the side of the boiler. It is a #13 wrench. Remove the water line. Now remove the nuts that hold the boiler on.

Trying to relpace the on/off switch on my solis crema sl70. I have the machine apart, but can not get the switch out of the face plate. Anyone kn ow the secret?


Hi The foil on the front has to peel back until the switch will push out the front. Peel from a corner. Make sure that the switch goes back in the same way.

I have a solis crema sl-70 whose portafilter leaks and actually flies off if I don't hold it in place as I pull a shot. Is this is small repair problem, or should I replace my machine?


You may just need a new grouphead gasket. This is a rubber ring that fits in the space between the outside of the grouphead and the interior area that houses the dispersion screen. If it's worn or dried out, the pf may not be sealing properly (which would cause the leaking and instability)
The portafilter (pf) handle should line up with a pre-printed indicator line on the group head when it's "locked" in. If you're looking at the machine straight on, and the far side is "12" on a clock face, the handle should be at 6 or 5 o' clock. The pf should "ease" in to the grouphead, not stop with a hard feeling.
The problem might be with the portafilter "ears", or the metal tines that wedge into the grouphead. If they're excessively worn, the pf might not be secured snugly enough to make a seal. A new pf will solve this.
So, first, try a new gasket. Then a new portafilter. Then a new machine :)

Need a new water container


I bought a Solis replacement water reservoir from Green Beanery in Canada a few years ago. They sell replacement Solis parts, but I'm not sure if they still carry the water reservoir. I had a hard time finding online merchants who sold Solis reservoirs.

SL 90 Machine not heating


Hi There are 3 things that could be the problem. 1. The power board on the left rear inside. 2. Heating element is burnt out. Replace the top part of the boiler and order a brew head gasket and replace it at the same time while you have the machine apart. 3. and less likely is the temperature sensor. 2 red wires goes from the board to the top of the boiler.
