Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
The most common cause for a machine tripping your supply is a faulty element. Usually it is found after descaling as well as basically the scale which is covering the fault is removed and then the contact with water makes it short out. It could be so small that you can't even see it but it is a problem that i have encountered before in many cases. If you require spares or repairs and you are within the UK please get in touch at email@example.com and i will be able to sort you out.
I have full access to Rancilio spares so not a problem to get you parts if you want to repair it yourself.

SOURCE: How do I descale the boiler etc
There are two good ways to descale anything that heats water for food/drinks. The easiest to get is white vinegar. Just put the vinegar in where you normally put water and run the unit until it runs normally. It may take ten or more times to get it cleaned up. Sometimes filling it and then letting it sit overnight makes it work faster, but if it's been a long time, you may need to be patient. The other chemical you can use is citric acid. It works faster but is more difficult to get.
Either way you'll need to run several cycles of water through after you get it clean to remove the taste of the vinegar or citric acid.

No, it does not quite clean both boilers, even though they are connected, you will have to use the preground chute if your machine has one, if not then grind and brew method will work. The reason, you want to get some of the cleaner through the white plastic valve behind the brewunit and the fitting that connects it to the boiler.

Testimonial: "Thank-you. Is it better to let the machine heat up to running temperature, or do it cold (as soon as it's turned on)?"
