Question about Rancilio Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
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.

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.

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.

Remove the shower screen and screw from the head, make sure screen is clean and run head without screen in place, if you get a good flow, problem on screen, if not then problem is on the inside of the machine between top of the head and pump. You can try descaling the machine.
