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.

Hi, I purchased Rancilio Silvia v3. I have overflow of water in water tank. What happens and how can I fix? Thank you.


There is a max fill line mark on the side of the water tank. Fill the water to there or less. Do not fill the water any higher than this line or water will spill out the side where the water inlet hoses run. Also make sure that the tank is not cracked and leaking water.

I am trying to remove my old Rancilio Silvia Group Head Gasket to install new one. It is rock hard. Any solutions for getting the old one out of place?


If you don't change it regularly it can be very hard. I've had to empty the machine, turn it upside down and chisel it out. I recommend a scratch awl and a hammer. hammer the awl in at an angle then pry it out. If the gasket breaks make sure you get all of the pieces out before installing the new one. Soak the new gasket in very hot water to help soften it so that it installs easier. Good luck.

Hi
The second one is your relief valve return water line. It just sets in the tank. Doesn't go anywhere.

Rancilio Silvia Espresso water flows too quickly about 7 seconds


  1. check the coffe filter>> it could be teard up and leaking(check it carefuly it is hard to see sometimes)
  2. check the pressure you get from group. 7 - 9 bar pressure you should get to handle. if it is biger than check by pas valve and adjust the pressure, also check up boiler security valve(security valve for water for coffee)

Sylvia not drawing water


Let's start simple.
Is it plumbed in? Is the water valve to it open?
Some also have internal valves under the drip tray.
Is there a filter or softener between the wall and the machine? Could me clogged, mis-installed or faulty.
Does the pump run?
Good luck!
