Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

1 Answer

My Silvia 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?!

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

My silvia is less than 2 years old. Yesterday I let the steam switch on and forgot to turn it off after steaming. It was on for about two hours. Then it won't heat up either. Should I get new part


On the happy side, if you tried to re-heat the boiler and found this problem straight after it failed, the thermostat may still re-set once the unit cooled down. So leave it a day and try again. Alternatively, it could be a burnt out fuse or on the less happy side, a burnt out boiler.
If no lights come on its a failed fuse. But if everything else is normal but it still wont heat, the best option is to take it for a service to a qualified technician as it may be that the boiler was damaged.

My 6 to 7 year old Silvia stopper making steam today. Do I need to send it out and where or is a diy


If it comes up to brew temperature, you have to replace the steam thermostat, which is a DIY. There are 2 thermostats on top of the boiler. The one with the red dot is the brew thermostat, so the other one is the one you need to replace.

Boiler light never goes off


Hi
If you have an ohms meter, do a check of the element in the boiler. The reading should be between 12 and 16 ohms. If you don't have any reading, you have a bad element and need to replace the boiler.

Youve probably run your boiler dry and blown your thermostat/s. You'll need to have them replaced. You may get away with only having to replace one. It will cost about $80(AUS) to have done or less if you source the parts and do it yourself (not recommended).

Sounds like your Rancilio needs a service, this problem could be caused by the boiler not working correctly, possibly a leak from the boiler or a valve malfunction causing a drop in pressure.
