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

What is wrong with my silvia? No coffee or water, but steam ok. Loud burring noise


Hi There,
Your coffee group is blocked, with lime or coffee oils.

Try descaling 1st Pulycaf coffee machine descaler . You will find descaler and cleaner in this rancilio silvia kit. Rancilio Silvia gasket kit . Descaling should be done every 3 months or so.

If the descaler does not work - you may have to remove the solenoid valve and descale that - not an easy fix. Takes 20 min.

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!

I spilled coffie on my logitech de novo keyboard.I turned it upside down and blew it out as good as i could but it still doesn,t work. any suggestions would be appresiated.


coffee??? did it have creme and sugar??

reason is the creme and sugar tends to stick the the plastic of the key board

i would just buy a new keyboard, but if you are hard up for money, then you could take it apart. and wash all the inside with hot water and soap. i hope none of the sugar or creme corroded some of the touch pad sensors. but washing it in soap and water(perferred more than luke warm water). wash all component and then air dry with a hair dryer or blown clean with compressed air and let sit around for a while you are looking about a days work.

so practically its better to buy another one, but then again, if you want to know how keyboard work this is your opportunity.

WASH ALL PLASTIC PIECES be careful not to break anything you might have to clean the touch pad sensor careful as they break easily if you dont what you are doing.

then you can reassemble all the pieces and see if it works. if it doesnt then the emprom chip probably got fried.


Good luck

there are two class of expresso coffée: one produce crema and the other none. A 9 sec shot, means you are putting ground coffee that are way too coarse. The Silvia requires coffee grounf extremely fine, near powder texture.
