Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Hi, the coffe part of the machine works, but the steamer doesn't. The steamer light comes on when I switch the steamer button to "on position", but there seems to be no water pressure at all when I turn the circular steamer knob. Any idea what this may be? thanks, Birgitte

The alarm light to empty the coffe grounds drawer AND the descaling light flash alternately I cleaned the brew group. Machine comes ready, but when I press to make a coffee it comes back with alternate...


Hi, the problem with your machine is with the grinder motor (not working).As soon as you press the coffee the CPU senses the motor is out of circuit and the lights start flashing alternately.
You can test it by doing this. Press and hold the steam button and switch on the machine, you will see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction. Release the button then turn the dial to left (Min) and press the steam button the grinder should work. The dial on the right (Max) the brew group will come up..and half way it will come back to normal position. Press the coffee button in that position will work the pump. Servicecenter can fix this if the machine is less than 2 year old FOC.

COFFE MACHIEN WON'T MAKE COFFEE


Hi
A blinking red light means that something is not in place. The usual subject is the drip tray. If it doesn't lock into place usually there are grounds behind it. The brew unit is an other one that doesn't lock in every time. To check, open the door and without pushing the "press" button, grab the handle and pull. If it comes out, that was your problem.

Then turn of the steam button, if the filter is not blocked there should now come water from the coffe outlet.

Saeco Gran Crema Espresso does not pump water


The machine needs to be primes.
Please trie and release hot water though the steam nossle.
Do like this
Open the steamer and then trie and make a cup of coffe. this will make the hot water come out thought the steamer instead of the coffe outlet.
Why you should do this is becuse the machine has it alot more easier to prime it self though the steamer then the coffe outlet.

Cannot express the coffee into the cups


Solution nr one cold be the machine ran out of water and the circuit need to be filled up again.
This is the procedure to do that

Fill up your water tank
Open the steam knob na push the coffe button...in that way the water will be forced to go to the steamer.If you have water in the steamer like you asking for hot water....go to the next step
Close the steam knob and at that point you will hear a different noise and the watewr should be able to go direct into the boiler and start dripping like it was before.
if you don`t have hot water coming oput from the steamer....the problem is before the boiler and could be a clog on the silicon tube or the water pump is loosing friction..

Pls don`t forget to rate your experience

Bodum Granos 3020 Espressoo Machine


Last year I stripped the machine and found the blockage in a diverter valve. This device switches between the coffee making head or the steamer. I had a blockage in the diverter causing the solenoid to lock in the coffee position that was also blocked. I flushed the system out with Oust cleaner.(very quick and effective) I then reassembled the machine and put sachet of oust with four times as much of filtered water. Then I switched the machine on and passed half the through the coffe head and steamer at full heat. Left for 10mins. then passing the rest through, cleaned with filtered water and away it went. Fixed!!! email gethudall@hotmail.com
