Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
I have a 5 year old Rancilio Silva that has stopped heating the water. I have replaced the brew thermostat, reset it and finally bypassed the high limit switch and still have no hot water. Any suggestions what I can do myself or do I need to send it in for repair? Any suggestions for a reputable repair site? thanks
Do an ohms check on the element. With an ohms meter check the reading between the elements. The reading should be between 12 and 16 ohms for a 110v machine and 50 to 60 for a 220v machine. If you have no reading or a higher reading you have a bad element.
Replace the boiler
