Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

Rancilio Epoca DE 2 group espresso machine

Yes in answer to your question I had the machine serviced by a qualified Rancilio supported workshop. The problem was different as it involved replacement of the pump, but they also replaced two flow meters and adjusted the boiler cutout temp and pressure. The temp cutout seems to be a bimetallic switch but when the machine fails if i put a muti meter across the switch it shows a closed circuit which i would expect as the machine is not getting up to working pressure.

It could also be that the solenoid is of the wrong specifications, and hence not getting up to pressure.. Have them check both the temp and pressure cutouts again..

I have rancilio epoca e2. One side is not pulling a high enough temperature thus not good crema. Other side works fine

The only thing that comes to mind is the metering jet on the group as well as the reducers on the tubes bringing water into the group.

My rancilio epoca s1 won't start.

Without being in front of it, there are a couple of things to check.
1. There is a reset button on top of the boiler. It is a black top with a red button in the center between 2 wires.
2. The water tank needs to be emptied and then refilled.That is the first things I would check.

Rancilio epoca - heating element continue to stick on

It's the thermostat for certain.

Te release valve is put there it be sure the tank pressure doesn't get too high such as to cause a steam explosion/rupture of the tank.
