Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

1 Answer

My machine is only about 1.5 years old and I have already replaced the boiler. I went to turn it on and it shorts the electricity in the kitchen ... the power just jumps every time I attempt to turn it on. I have tried the reset button inside( the Red pin. It doesn't need to be pushed in). Help?!

The only time I have seen this was with a defective boiler. Be sure there are no bare wires touching one another or touching the machine.

When you replaced the boiler did you fill it before turning the machine on? If no then the element could be damaged.

Stelrad ideal mexico boiler


Trying to look that unit up. I believe it is obsolete. IF there is an electric motor on this unit, I would check that first. Motors are the biggest consumers of electricity and they have moving parts. If there are no motors then you need to check any electric ignitors that are present. They step voltage up and can short out. This means that you should have some way to test things. Using something like a meter is good

I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher that is 12 years old. The "clean" light on the control panel is on and the machine won't start it's cycle. Can I reset the control panel?


Hello Lisa. Go to your electrical panel for your home or apartment and turn off the circuit to the dishwasher for two full minutes. Check to be sure that you have turned off the correct circuit by looking to see that the "clean" light is off. After two full minutes turn the circuit back on. This alone may reset the machine and the control panel.

If it does not, then you will have a decision to making regarding repair VS replace. I always make this recommendation to my customers with any appliance over 5 years old. Replace it. In this instance, the new dishwashers use much less water, much less electricity, are much quieter, and they do a much better job. The advancements in dishwasher technology and design have been remarkable in the past three years. Joe

Hi
You boiler is leaking. You need to replace the boiler. sorry. Your water hardness might be set to low if you have been descaling when it tells you to. Boilers usually last 7 to 10 years, but need to be replaced. If you need one let me know. I have some new and rebuilt boilers for that machine.

Maytag Gemini MER6772 keypad/ovens not working


I had same problem, error code F 1-8, shorted keypad. I was so frustrated I went ahead and tore it apart. There was a surprising amount of gunk and moisture between the plastic face and the actual contacts. I cleaned it up and let it dry out. It worked OK for a while, but the seal is not good, and moisture from baking is still getting into it. When it goes bad again, I'm going to take off the plastic face and just press the sensors with a pencil eraser. I'll probably replace the range within the year. No way I'm paying $385 for new pad + installation on 10 year old stove.
