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.

Were you using cleancaf to descale? If so, it is not a strong enough descaler. Use Dezcal. or a Dezcal cleancaf mixture. The two work great together.

Make sure you get some descaler in the solenoid area by turning on and off the coffee button.

Hope it works out for you.

SOURCE: Pasquini Livia 90 - No water from the group head

The problem could be calcium built up blocking the jet and stopping the flow of water through your 3 way solenoid valve.
Otherwise the 3 way solenoid has stopped working. The 3 way valve part #91004 is $105 + shipping.

If you capable of removing the top and 3 body side of the machine, you can contact me and I can walk you through diagnosing if this is the problem with the jet or the valve. Before you call, make sure you have a philips screwdriver, 14 and 15mm open ended wrench or crescent wrench, flashlight, and paper clip.

My experience is working over 10 years at Pasquini as a master technician running the home repair sales and service center.

I stock all Pasquini parts for any service of your Pasquini espresso machines and grinders. Contact us for any of your Pasquini sales and service needs.

What is wrong with my silvia? No coffee or water, but steam ok. Loud burring noise


Hi There,
Your coffee group is blocked, with lime or coffee oils.

Try descaling 1st Pulycaf coffee machine descaler . You will find descaler and cleaner in this rancilio silvia kit. Rancilio Silvia gasket kit . Descaling should be done every 3 months or so.

If the descaler does not work - you may have to remove the solenoid valve and descale that - not an easy fix. Takes 20 min.

I have a Rancilio Silvia around 5 years old. After around a year, it stopped reliably producing dry steam. I have very hard water, but despite regular vinegar cleaning, cannot seem to get it to steam


I work on industrial machines have done so for 15yrs
if your machine is anything like the prof rigs in terms of engineered design then what you are noticing is the pressure release valve working-letting any unused and pressure + water drain from the group head to a small plastic black box below the stainless housing panels/drip tray after extraction is complete.

What i describe should only happen after the shot stopped.

you should hear it and see it the water for about 2seconds after you stop the extraction manually/automatically

Just bought the machine. Basically, the problem is that the steam wand goes of on its own (or as soon as I push the coffee button) and that I cannot turn the steam handle at all or do anything to stop...


Hi. Make sure all your buttons are off. (switches all facing the same direction). Then make sure the tap is turned off. Switch main power on. Then switch the coffee on. you should hear the pump start. usually loud at 1st, then it will get quiter as the water is pumped up through the group head. When water is pouring through the group head, switch off the coffee button. Now let it finish heating. If you can get to this stage, then everything is ok. If you cant get it to this stage then you have a problem with the machine. Most likely a themostat on the boiler. Darryn REPAIRER

I have a quite old la pavoni p3v2 110v 2000w two group machine that I have just finished a rebuild on. The machine goes to full temp on the boiler, the steam is great, but I can't get more than about 140...


Check the top of the group head there is a large bolt, within that is the metering jet and filter, that might be the cause of the blockage(either the jet is clogged or the filter is clogged). As for the full temp on the boiler what reading do you get on the gauge boiler side, it needs to be at about 1.2 bars.

Super hot water out of the group head on my Rancilio Sylvia


My Rancilio Silva is not making the water or steam hot anymore. Is it fairly easy to replace the heating element?

No water thru the group head


We were having the same problem and this worked for us, right from an insert that was included with the manual.

1. Fill tank with water
2. Remove the filter holder
3. open the steam tap
4. press the main switch and the coffee switch at the same time
5. close the steam tap as soon as water begins to flow
6. If after 30 sec. no water comes out repeat the operation.
7. when it starts, draw off 4 cups of water

This worked for us after we had about given up,
