Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

1 Answer

The machine was turned off for 5 days while overseas. On return I was able to make one cup of espresso but then I could not get any water through the chamber for more coffee. Steam issues through the head and the pump became very noisy. I have been through the set up process a number of times but there is no water getting through to the boiler. There are no issues with the water level or tubing.

Hi
Does water flow through the wand when you open the steam knob, and then push the middle switch?

What might stop electrical slow?


Hello, Vickie
Your machine does not turn on AND you have (or had) calcium deposits in the reservoir valve so, my best guess is:
First the calcium deposits blocked water from going into the heating unit.
Then, the heating unit over-heated and the thermal fuse opened to prevent a fire.
So, you may have to replace the thermal fuse.

This will require disassembly to access the water heating module, locating of the thermal fuse, reading the fuse information from the spent fuse, locating a source for a replacement fuse...etc. Thermal fuses cost about $2 at electronic supply outlets.

New Keurig B70 (brewed about 20 cups of coffee) won't brew even when it indicates it's ready. We were able to start it after multiple attempts - removing k-cup, unplugging, turning it off, etc. Does it...


I had the same problem. I called Keurig. After much back and forth of "do this" "OK, I did that. It still doesn't work" they are going to send me a new brewer in "5-7 days". I just have to send back the K-cup assembly.

It's blinking de-scale side water holder gets r4eally hot water is not coming out properlywhen u press one of the cup size bottons


Hi,

This is the time, you need to Descale the machine. The simple procedure is :-

Unfortunately, in spite of the best-laid plans of mice and men, espresso machines often get clogged by scale, deposits of minerals from hard water. Scale can cause serious damage if untreated. If your espresso machine's water flow has decreased a lot, it's probably because of scale. Fortunately, there is an easy and inexpensive way to descale your espresso machine.

  1. Obtain some citric acid. You can either order this online or find it in the kosher foods section of the supermarket (usually marketed as "sour salt"). Acid solutions dissolve scale, which is made of calcium carbonate. There are special solutions marketed specifically for descaling, but citric acid works just as well and is much cheaper.
  2. Prepare the descaling solution by mixing citric acid with water (I use two tablespoons of acid and a quart of water).
  3. Put the descaling solution in the water tank, turn on the machine, and run water through the steam wand until the cup is filled, to expose the parts to the solution. Turn off the machine, and leave it for 20 minutes so that the solution has time to dissolve scale.
  4. After 20 minutes, run more water
  5. Run solution through the machine every 20 minutes, until the water tank is empty.
  6. Fill the water tank with plain water, and run water through the machine until output water no longer tastes sour. This is important, because excess citric acid does not make coffee taste good.
Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Filter cone is full of hot water & thermo pot has about 5 - 6 cup


Te water fill lid is not closed or or the flow valve in the tank is plugged. Remove the basket and clear the hole in the bottom of it.. If new, return it to place of purchase.

My cuisenart 12 cup thermal coffee maker makes bad coffee. I can't return it as it was a fathers day gift. coffee always tastes bitter and burnt. at work we use the same coffee in a 20 dollar sunbeam...


The quality of the water is responsible for the flavor of the coffee. If you have had this coffee maker for a while it is probably coated with lime. Run a couple of cups of vinegar through it followed by a couple of pots of clear water. That will clean up your machine.

Once it is clean, try making a pot with bottled water, or water that you run through a water filtering pitcher.
You will be amazed at the differenct.

Rinsing cycle won't START


After all, I turned machine off with power switch, waited 30 seconds and turned it back on. It displayed "RINSING CYCLE" message, but this time went through regular rinsing cycle, then rinsed thoroughly (I counted several cups of water) and RETURNED TO NORMAL.

Halleluiah! Now I can get my morning coffee again!

Alternatively, try draining the machine. Page 37 of the user manual, Drainage. Place cup under the steam/hot water tube, turn knob clockwise around to 9. If the pump is ok, it will start automatically and start filling the cup. Drain about 1/2 cup of hot water and return knob counterclockwise to start position. If the flow meter is not damaged, the Ventilate message should be gone.
