Keep portafilter in the head with no coffee in it at all times, preheat portafilter and cup before you brew a coffee.

What are the Rancillio classe 8 all settings numbers?


This would depend entirely upon what drinks you are making. Most users set the quantities based on the double espresso drink; as an example 14g of powder tamped to produce a 75ml double shot in 22seconds. Other drinks can then be set from there.

Loud drilling noise when coffee switch is turned on - rather than the usual purring noise - and no coffee delivery either


How old is your machine ? and what maintenance have you done over time such as replacing the shower curtain located at the pourring end of the hot water ? I had too very loud noise coming occasionnally from the stainless steel rack holding the cup while coffee is delivered. If your ground coffee is too fine it will stop flow during making a shot. Is water coming out when no coffee is placed in the portafilter.The water pump on this machine is a cheap pump that has to be replaced over time. Mine is 7 years old and has delivered four cups of expresso everyday of the year, and still working.3841c994-fb4b-459f-8d1f-710e0aafc3c0.jpg 2ead4f70-37c6-4236-a9c2-992dba149c4c.jpg

Espresso shots pour very slow for both the single and double shots.


Did you try adjusting the group head screw? And/or cleaning and checking the valve in the group head? Good visuals and instructions here: https://myprojectsandmods.wordpress.com/2014/10/27/delonghi-ec702-espresso-machine-no-water-flow-fix/

I have a rancillio epoca dual head espresso machine, there are two gages on the front of the machine, steam is coming out of the top gage


You will need to get that manometer changed. Get a hold of a rancilio dealer and tell them you need a steam manometer.

Making Espresso shots... how does the macine do this? Not in man


www.partsguru.com look to the left for Saeco Home Models, select that, then go the model you have and download the manual.

On a magic comfort it has two settings for adjusting the espresso shot besides the amount of the shot. .

On a magic comfort plus,
you can adjust the grind size, the amount used for the shot, preinfusion (a short shot of hot water on the grinds before the unit passes all the water through the puck (coffee grinds), temperature and amount of water for shot

Also, when setting the strength on this machine, don't use a full grind amount as it can jam the machine. use a setting of 6 or 7 max for strong shots, not the 8 or 9 setting!!!

UNABLE TO GET GOOD CREMA ON TOP OF COFFEE:


It could be. Your grind should determine the amount of time that it takes the shot to pour. Standard is 18 - 30 seconds. I prefer 25. If it only takes 10 sec, your crema will be weak.
Are your beans fresh? Older beans produce less crema. By old, I mean more than a month if properly stored.
What is the temperature of you shots? The water coming out of the head should be about 195 F which makes the shots roughly 170-185. If it's too cold, you'll get worse crema. It's also possible to have mostly steam in contact with the grounds which will give the same results. Both indicate other problems.
Make sure your group head screen isn't clogged. And make sure everything is very clean, especially inside the handle (under the grounds basket - just pop it out with a screwdriver). Good luck!

Rancillio Silvia Steaming problem


Sounds like your Rancilio needs a service, this problem could be caused by the boiler not working correctly, possibly a leak from the boiler or a valve malfunction causing a drop in pressure.
