SOURCE: leaking steam valve rancilio miss audrey

you should take out the knob first, than you try to disasembke the SHAFT of valve from the valve body, in this types(small espresso coffe machines) usualy producer use conical valve, without seals she close metal to metal, when you get out the SHAFT you will see one line on the conical end. for repairing it will be enough to visit one metal vorkery where they will take a small amount of brass from end and polish it. then you put it back and work again with your machine.

ps: notice you only polish the SHAFT , dont let them to short the more than 0.5 mm

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.

Domestic machines need regular descaling to avoid group blockages.

I have a rancilio epoca 1group. After I turn the steam wand off it keeps steaming. Would it need a new valve?


Hi Daren,
You could replace the whole steam valve wand but you don't need to.
The rubber grommet inside the steam valve is worn out and the tap wont close properly - that is why the steam is coming out.
You will find these parts with a commercial rancilio supplier.

Cant turn the steam knob


Replace the steam valve. It is not very hard to do and you can find a new valve with a Google search.

It is possible to attempt a repair but it is as hard to just replace the valve and repaired valve usually leak a bit.
