Have Rancilio Rocky for about 3 months. Noticed grinds around base from time to time. Yesterday picked up machine, saw accumulation. Tapped base, more came out. Took off base, about 2 oz. of grinds inside. Common or is mine defective?

Hi There could be a piece broken around the chute where it comes out of the grinder and enters the grounds chamber. There is a rectangular opening in the plastic that can get broken causing the grounds to enter the machine.

Our Silvia, almost 8 years old, is putting out shots too fast (10 to 15 seconds), even though we've been dialing down the grind on Rocky more fine, putting more coffee in, and tamping harder. We...


Try to redo what you have been doing, but set it to the extremes to see if everything is functioning. If you set the grind say to 4, it should come out very slow or maybe not at all.

  1. stabilize the body of grinder
  2. provide block spin to be in release position
  3. get one 3 legged key for releasing oil filters
  4. put filter legs at upper holder of burrs
  5. start to release carefuly
be gentle at first, go forward and backwards to measure how much strength is required

Have you tried to hoover up the grinds from time to time, from the grinder blades. The coffee beans and ground can gather under the blades from over time. It should not be a problem though.
For better crema you may want to replace the blades.You should replace every 3-6 years. Rancilio Rocky Grinder Flat blades

Silvia pressure issue


The Silvia comes equipped with a "pressurestat" that may have gone out of adjustment. Do a google search on that and you will find numerous pictoral guides on how to do this. The owner's manual that came with the machine (they have electronic versions at espressotec.com, among other places) will also give you basic instructions. Good luck!

Rancilio rocky grinder setting


to get starting point you adjust burrs to touch each other. when they touch each other you have finest grinding, after you hear metal voice you turn back 3 dots and grind only for 1 dose. you check it, if it goes to slow, you go one more back and clean gruinder, THAN you grind 1 dose more. 2 or 3 times and you will get perfect grinding.

Have a Rancilio silvia machine, grind coffee with a Rancilio rocky. Problem is that sometimes... more often than not, the coffee coming out of the portafiller spouts comes out quickly and sprays all over...


Try taking the portafilter out and run water through it as if you were making an espresso. check if the water coming out is very fast. I believe there is a screen there that is held in by a flat screw. If you take that off you should be able to see light through it. If you can't soak it in some cleaner until you can see light through it. There could be a couple of things causing this. The other thing that comes to mind is that the boiler has to much pressure but it should say on your gauge if that is happening. You might find that it just needs a good cleaning.

Adjusting grind on Rancilio Rocky


  1. because it didn't work a wilde the upper burr holder could be jammed, carefully take id off, clean it good and then put it back until you touch lower burr with the upper.
  2. to get starting point you adjust burrs to touch each other. when they touch each other you have finest grinding, after you hear metal voice you turn back 3 dots and grind only for 1 dose. you check it, if it goes to slow, you go one more back and clean grinder, THAN you grind 1 dose more. 2 or 3 times and you will get perfect grinding.

Rancilio grinder does not grind fine enough for espresso


After taking the top burr off several times and rescrewing it, I finally was able to exert enough force to get it to turn a couple of extra turns. Evidently there was some oil or coffee gunk (although I could see none) that snagged the bur. Now it appears to work as before.

This is a great, service by the way. Even the process of thinking through the problem so I could post it helped me solve it.
