The first time I used mine I had the same problem. Try making sure the brew selector is not too far to steam selection. If that doesn't work make sure the basket with the espresso in it is not too tight.

My Italia, Classic, Palazzo, has a slow drip into my cup (Brewing)


<span>If you make a pre-ground shot but don't put any coffee in it, and it does the same thing you have a blockage in the brew head.<br />If it run normally, your grind is to fine. Turn the grinder knob to a larger number. It takes 3 times to change to the new grind.<br />If it still dribbles, remove the brew unit (behind the <a href="/#"><span>door</span></a>)<br />Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the door with a rubber tip. 2 or 3 screws hold it to the top. Remove the screws while holding the manifold. Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (becareful, there is a spring and inside a steel ball (don't loose it or your out of luck). Turn the brew unit upside down while holding the brew head in your other hand and the steel ball should fall out. If it doesn't come out put a towel down and tap the brew unit on the towel. This should force it out.<br />Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember thumbscrew, DON'T use the key to <a href="/#"><span>install</span></a> the screen, use your fingers.....<br />Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. 1 big one in the center and a small one to the side.<br />Now use air to blow back through the opening where the steel ball was to clear the opening. Once its open, clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the steel ball in first. Then the spring.<br />Then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the door. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head.<br />Run another pre-ground without the coffee and rinse it out. Do this once in a while to prevent this.<br /></span>

My machine wont give me much water into the brewgroup tried another brewgroup and it is the same . Iyt takes about a minute to put thru one shot of coffee and we only get about 10mm of expresso in the cup...


Hi
If you push the scoop but don't put any coffee in the brew group, what happens? If it brews right (water comes out), then I would suspect that your coffee is too fine. Push the lever below the grinder on the right to the back (#7) and then try to brew again. Don't let it go all the way. Push the coffee button as soon as it starts to brew. Do this 3 times. The 4th time let it go and see if it will brew. If it doesn't I would need more information.

My Rancilio Silvia, about three years old, does not seem to be generating sufficient pressure. Standard espresso grind requires about two minutes for a shot and coffee is bitter. Is there any way to...


First things first, remove the screw and shower in the head and clean. Then change grind to something a little coarser, since we are testing the machine we will not tamp the coffee(we are doing this to have a constant in our coffee brewing equation). Note how long it took to brew, if it brewed longer than 40 secs, then adjust grind and try again. If coffee shots looks better and taste better then we are on the right track, we are looking for any thing between 15 and 30 sec depending on the coffee blend from light to dark. If you are getting the same results over 40 secs for a shot no matter what grind you use then the pump needs to be replaced.

Rancilio Silvia - Water coming from behind into the drip tray when pouring a shot.


Correct
When you are finished and turn the pump off, the 3 way valve opens and relieves the pressure in the brew head so you don't get an explosion of coffee when you remove the portafilter.

My Gaggia Synchrony is leaking - If I remove the water catch basis, I can see a drip. We have used this machine every day for years - can the problem be fixed easily?


HI
There is a panel behind the brew unit, that has 2 screws. Remove it and clean the coffee residue behind it. That is what drains the pressure relieved after brewing, and has coffee residue that can build up and cause the leak. It should leak into the drip tray though, except when you rremove it.

1. After brewing a cup of coffee, when the grinds are emptying, a stream of coffee and grinds drains into the Drip Tray from the valve(?) in the rear right of the Drip Tray. We have gone into program mode...


HI
Excess water into the drip tray is an indication that you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit. There is a lever on the top of the door that has a + on one side and a - to the front. Push the lever back to the full plus, then pull it forward 1 click. Try that.
Water into the drip tray is normal in small amounts. This is the release of pressure after brewing, like the 3 way valve on commercial machines

Flow through head too fast


HI When you grind your coffee, try to pinch the coffee between your fingers. If it sticks to one finger and forms an impression of your fingers, that's good. If it doesn't, then your grounds are not fine enough. Fresh beans also is a must. Don't use the single basket because thay don't work that well. Fill the basket level with ground coffee, then tap the portafilter on something hard to settle the coffee. Then do your tamp, with about 30 psi pressure. Wipe the lip of the portafilter before you insert it in the brew head. then do your brew. You should not get any drops for about 5 seconds after you turn on the switch. then it should just drip a little, then you should get a mouse tail from the spouts. You are shooting for a 1 1/2 oz. to 2 oz in about 30 seconds. No more than 2 ozs from a double shot basket. Add water if you want more.
