Wet steam coming out of iron

You have to take part the iron by unscrewing the three bolts on the side handle with a small phillips driver. Then loose the allen screw on one side of the black thermostat wheel to unloosen it. Then take out the two bolt plastic protectors under the handle and unscrew the two allen bolts, carefully separate the top from the botton of the iron, carefully not to pry loose the cables from the top to the hot shoe.
On the back you will see a small white square box, that is the thermostat, which has a button on top, all you need to do is to push it in. This will make the iron heat up unless you have a thermostat failure (Black wheel with temperature indicators), which you will need to order the part and change it.

Hi, please help! I have just moved in to a new flat and there is an Ecosave timer linked up but I know for a fact I'm not on Economy 7 Does this mean that the timer is simply controlling whether

Manual says 'tappets are pre-set to off-peak.
However if you want different time, move tappets outward.'

Timer dial is ordinary 24-hour analog.
You can remove glass cover, and manually rotate the dial around and observe what happens to get best idea how you want to set timer.
Set current time by manually rotating dial until current time lines up with winter or summer time arrowhead

Overheating after installing heating element

When you replace your heating element it is always best to remove one of the wire connectors to the heating terminals before filling the boiler. When the boiler is full you can then reattach the wire to the terminal. Always have the machine unplugged from the outet when working on the inside of the machine.
There is a reset button on the front side of the boiler. It is a red button between the 2 black wires on the high limit thermostat. If that didn't do it it might be the new element you just put in. Check and see if it will heat in the steam mode. If it will, its your brew thermostat.

X2 francis francis trips breaker when plugged in?

Tripping the breaker is usually a bad heating element. You have to check each heating element to determine which element is bad (2 on and X2). Use an ohms meter and check the 2 elements on each boiler for a reading of between 12 and 16 ohms. If no reading that is the bad element. Its in an aluminum boiler so lubricate the end of the bolts(threads) before you try to remove them or they might break.

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.

Rancilio Silvia - Burning/smoking

From the pic I can see that the element is burnt out, you will have to replace the boiler(boiler and element come in one piece), check with your local Rancilio dealer or check with EspressoPartsNW, for a new boiler/element, also get the gasket for that. To remove boiler disconnect connection to pump and steamvalve, then remove allen wrench screws.
