Hi ensure that the group head has heated up before using I tend to screw the head in and place the porta filter on top of the machine to allow it to heat up (heat the machine up for at least and with regards to the tamping ensure that you tamp firmly and twist at the end to smooth the surface.You could try tampind the cofee in the portafilter before placing it in the group head then after you have placed the porta filter back in give it another quick tamp remembering to twist at the end to help smooth the surface.

Then pull a shot. I get great crema like this.Also ensure the cups are warm.

You can heat the brew head and cups by running hot water through them before using as well this method is called cheating the Silvia

Unit fails to prime> have followed instructions. Is there a reset button?


Hi
You might want to check you hoses that connect to the pump and make sure that both of them are in the water tank. They will come loose from the pump and the pump won't prime.

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!
