Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
The heater doesn't seem to work any more. I have cared for my dear Silvia as well as I know how to, so I can not think of any reason for anything suddenly being broken. Can it be a fuse or something?
There is a reset button inside on the front side of the boiler (you have to take the top of the machine off. There are 4 screws and remove the water tank). It is located between 2 black wires and is a red button. Push it in and test. There is also an other problem that you might have. If the brew thermostat is bad it won’t heat. To test for this, push the steam switch and wait 15 seconds. Then open the steam knob and push the middle button and see if the water is warm. If it is then you need a new brew thermostat. That is the thermostat that has the red dot on the top. It sets on top of the boiler next to the steam thermostat. If you take the top off, make sure that the machine is unplugged.

Tips for a great answer:
These two lights indicate a fault in the heating circuit.
You would require to have access to and be able to use a multimeter to test the heater if the machine isn't actually heating the water.
If it is heating the water then obviously we know the fault isn't with the heater.
Check the heater first.
Take the door apart and check the wiring in the door isn't broken.
If everything checks ok, take the pcb out, look for burned or dry joints around the relays.
