If there is not a red pin on the top of the thermostats, then the easiest way to tell which one is bad is with an ohms meter or just replace both.

My silvia is less than 2 years old. Yesterday I let the steam switch on and forgot to turn it off after steaming. It was on for about two hours. Then it won't heat up either. Should I get new part


On the happy side, if you tried to re-heat the boiler and found this problem straight after it failed, the thermostat may still re-set once the unit cooled down. So leave it a day and try again. Alternatively, it could be a burnt out fuse or on the less happy side, a burnt out boiler.
If no lights come on its a failed fuse. But if everything else is normal but it still wont heat, the best option is to take it for a service to a qualified technician as it may be that the boiler was damaged.

Not heating up the water


Hi
3 things could be wrong. First is easy to check. With machine on, turn on the steam switch and after about a minut open the steam knob and push the middle switch. Check the water coming from the wand and see if its warm? If it is you need a brew thermostat. Unplug the machine. Remove the water tank. Remove the 4 screws that hold the top on and lift top off. The boiler has 2 thermostats on the top front of the boiler, and the one with the red dot is the brew thermostat and need replacing.
If that didn't fix your problem there is a reset thermostat on the front face of the boiler and has black wires going to it. There is a red button in the middle of the thermostat and needs to be pushed.
If that one didn't solve your problem you need a new heating element. You can do a continuity check on the terminals.

Rancilio miss silvia dispenses cold water


If there is steam in the machine, the only other problem would be if the portafilter was cold and you are brewing into metal or glass demitasse that has not been heated.

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?

Water will not come through the steam wand


I had the same problem. I took the steam wand off, and checked for steam out of the unit. It was OK, so I stuck a thin wire up through the steam wand and dislodged what look like pieces of a green washer or O-ring.
In short...the wand was plugged.
