2 screws in the beanhopper, remove it.
1 screw under the bean hopper in a litle hole on the backside.

if you open the door to the brewingunit, you will find 2 screws underneath, one is close to were the coffe outlet is and the other one is on the other side.

and 1 screw is under the watertank.

after you have taken all those screws of then you can remove the top cover. and the bioler will be exposed.

Saeco Incanto Sirius doesn't turn on. Outlet fine. Is there a main fuse to check/reset? Other suggestions. Hopefully it didn't get surged with Hurricane Irene.

We have here the map with service support but as you can see they to have for the moment any at CT. However you can check if any other area is the best for you.

Is there a repair manual for the rancillio silvia

There is not a repair manual for the silvia, the most that can go wrong is the 3 resettable thermostat on the top of the boiler, remove the 4 screws on top of the machine for access. Unless you run the boiler dry. Then if the thermostats did not kick off in time then you will need a new boiler. You will notice a discoloration in the water out of the group or the steam valve.

Starts to steam and water light flashes. No steaming. I restart the pot and can make one espresso. The water light flashes. I can restart the pot and it will make another espresso. I don't think it is...

I have 2 also and I use good water but I set mine on the max (all the lights lite) I use to work on these machines and they are good but water is the culpret on most issues with this machine. sweet water has a lot of calcium in it and that can plug the tube going through the boiler. We replaced 3 boilers on these new type boilers because they will plug up with calcium and when they plug completely they have to be replaced. We fould that if you descale more often than needed you have less troubles with the boiler. I have a Digital Italia that has over 18,000 coffees on it and still has the same boiler. I descale all my machines at about 400 coffees.

Red boiler light will not go on. The boiler does heat up.

Open the steam valve when you turn the machine on that will vent out the boiler, keep it open until it starts to hiss slightly and produce small steam bubbles, then close and machine should heat to temp. If that solves your problem then the vent valve needs to be replaced, until then you can turn using the steam valve open trick.

Yes you can. There's a bit of work involved. The issue is you have to remove the boiler through the top of the machine in order to access the gasket. If you're not careful, you can break one or all 3 lights because of the wires attached and the limited amount of room. I would take pics of everything before you begin. Then remove the 2 screws from the top of the machine. You can see all the wires and the brass boiler. Next remove the 4 cap screws near the brewhead where the portafilter goes. When you do this, you will see the boiler is now loose. I will let you decide how you want to do the rest. Either remove and label all the wires, or remove some of them or whatever you choose. Once you can remove the boiler, you will see that the chrome brewhead cover also comes off revealing gasket. Remove the damaged gasket, and clean the area where it sits. Put on the new gasket and put everything back. That's it. Good luck!

The water sensor light came on. I can not get water thru the machine. have tried the troubleshooting fix in manual. No luck. The machine not used for a year or so.

If no water is comming out from steamer or coffee brewer and you can hear pump working most likely as it's been sitting for a year the boiler is blocked. Not much you can really do as you can't try to descale as water will not go through. Cheap alternative is to remove boiler and pull apart ( not an easy job as screws get seized and the two peices of the boiler tend to stick together) once you have the boiler out you could try compressed air to unblock partially so you can do a descale. Other wise pull boiler apart and clean then refit new seals.
Water sensor light comes on as no flow is detected.

Replacing the pipe unit

Here's how it works....
An initial short run of the pump draws water from the reservoir into the boiler where it is heated by an electrical heating coil. There are two outputs from the boiler, one from the top runs through a pipe to a steam valve. When the steamer handle is turned, the steam valve opens and steam is piped out through the steam tube for frothing milk. The second output from the boiler is on the underside and is stopped by the normally closed flow valve. When the water in the boiler reaches the right temperature, a sensor switches on the OK light. When the light is on, the user pushes the pump switch and more water is pumped from the reservoir. The pressure in the boiler increases because the pump is trying to push in more water and this forces the spring loaded boiler flow valve to open allowing hot water to run out. As the sump filled with ground coffee is fitted to the boiler output, the water is forced through the coffee and out of the sump where it pours into a waiting cup.
When enough coffee has been poured, the user switches off the pump. The boiler pressure falls and the spring on the flow valve pushes the valve shut again.
------------ The first three steps aren't strictly necessary for disassembly however if you're using a long handle screwdriver then removing the base makes it easier to gain better access to some of the screws.
Step 1. Remove the screw on each base arm.
Step 2. ... then lift and remove the arms.
Step 3. Remove the two screws on the base of the unit. Unlike in this photo I would recommend you avoid resting the machine on its back unless you are sure it has been completely drained. The black plastic base can now be pulled away allowing easier access to some of the screws that will be removed later.
Step 4. Undo the two screws on the top rear.
Step 5. Remove the coffee tamper by pulling and twisting.
Step 6. Remove the three screws. These are anti tamper screws and are star shaped with a nipple in the middle.
Step 7. With these screws removed, the top may be lifted away. The hotplate on the top section is still connected by a couple of thin wires so lift it carefully.
Step 8. To help with shifting the top out of the way, disconnect the hot plate/boiler heater connection. This will allow you to push the top of the unit away giving you the room you need to get inside.
Step 9. Unscrew the electrical safety earth and move the earth wiring out of the way.
Step 10. Use some long nose pliers to pull out the circlip that holds the boiler inlet pipe in place. Pull out the pipe to disconnect it from the boiler once the circlip has been removed.Step 11. Unscrew, remove and clean the diffuser.
Step 12. Remove the two screws . The black plastic underside casing can now be pulled away (plastic tabs need to be pushed aside ). Step 13. Pulling away the plastic underside once screws and tabs are removed.
Step 14. Loosen the four black Torx (star shaped) boiler screws . Water in the boiler may leak out at this point so ensure the unit is upright and a towel is placed underneath.
Step 15. Remove the four nuts (three arrowed) from the underside of the boiler unit.
Step 16. Lift up the top of the boiler assembly along with the steam outlet and place to one side. The two halves of the boiler assembly are sealed with a rubber gasket which should remain attached to the upper housing. Make sure this is properly in place when reassembling.
Step 17. The lower boiler assembly can now be lifted out.

No power to Gaggia Syncrony Logic

Re the Gaggia no power problem, the machine does have a re set button, 2 in fact the boiler unit must be removed and the two reset switches are between the sender units (brown in colour).
After disconecting the power source open the machine (top off)The three alan head screws that retain the boiler (front of the machine) unit must be removed it can be lifted clear to gain access to the bottom of the unit where the reset buttons are.
This will save hundreds of dollars in shipping and service fees.
DIY takes about 10-20 min well worth it.
Take care when doing this opperation 240 volts can kill.

Hmmm. It doesn't sound like a boiler problem. The heating element is controlled by a pressure or temperature switch. Either the switch is poorly connected or malfunctioning. Temp. switches are directly on the boiler with wires that go to a relay connected to the heating element. Pressure switches just have a tube connected to the boiler with wires to the relay.

Good luck!
