  1. check the solenoid valve and electronic comand for boiler filing. solenoid valve could be leaking, electronic part could have weak contact with level detector wire or relay (driver of solenoid valve and motor) has bad contacts, and does not open circuit circuit remains all the time closed.
  2. check the presurestat, be sure that he opens cirquit at 1.5 bar snd does not angage heating element to heat up more.

Descaling rancilio


Use Citric Acid.

  1. Dissolve about one tablespoon of citric acid in the water reservoir.
  2. Fill the boiler completely. Open the steam valve and start a hot water cycle until water comes out the steam vent. Stop the hot water cycle, close the vent.
  3. Let the boiler heat up about 5 minutes. Then turn off the power.
  4. Let the acid solution work for about 1/2 hour.
  5. Pull a 30 second shot to change the water in the boiler.
  6. Repeat flushing cycles (steps 3, 4, & 5) until the water looks clear. Refill the reservoir with water and acid as needed.
  7. Wash out the water reservoir.
  8. Pull 5 or shots to get the acidic water out of the boiler. Run a hot water cycle to clean the acidic water out of the steam vent.
  9. Let the unit come to temperature and look for leaks.
  10. Make some coffee and look for leaks.
  11. Froth some milk and look for leaks.

The in formation on this page is for use of technicians and experienced persons. All others do so at their own risk.

Traditional Home Espresso Machines Have the Following Parts:
1. A brass or aluminum boiler (16 to 40 oz. capacity).
2. A boiler outlet valve to help increase the pressure of water, before it is pumped through coffee grounds.
3. An oscillating pump with or without external thermostat.
4. A steam valve with a knob to open & close steam/hot water outlet.
5. Thermostat to limit temperature of water or steam.
Limit for espresso water temperature: 90°C to 98°C
Limit for steam temperature: between 127°C to 152°C.
6. A thermofuse to shut power supply when temperature in the boiler exceeds the higher limit (usually 185°C).
7. Solenoid valve (selected Gaggia models only).
8. A filter cup holder handle to place ground coffee for extraction of espresso.
The pump models generally are easy to open. In most brands, the top cover is fixed with two to four screws. In the Barista/Rio Vapore models, the top cover curves around to the back and the top has two screws. The front end has about 1/3" 90 degree fold. This folded lip is wedged between two plates. It may be necessary to use a long screw driver or other rod, pushed under the top cover, alternatively on either side of the machine to nudge the cover free and lift up. Note the slide along the left side in the picture below. Once the top cover is taken off, the entire internal set up can be viewed. The pictures below show two popular models:
1. Gaggia Model Espresso (without solenoid valve)
2. Saeco Espresso Classico (rapid steam model)

Water keeps coming into the machine


First thing check the manual fill under drain tray to make sure it is in the off position, next check the water level in the sight glass, I will assume the machine has a level probe connected to the boiler and not the level card on the sight glass. Next check the inlet valve. If water comes into the boiler without stopping when the machine is turn on and it overfills then the connection on the level probe is missing or the inlet solenoid is not closing and needs to be checked for blockage.

LPG operated usually fine but drops pressure after a couple of hours continous use in our coffee van. Pressure will rise again after 10 mins or so. How do we stop this from happening? Jan


You can do one or two things;
1 - Increase the pressure stat to 1.3 bar,
2 - Raise the water level in the boiler for more thermal mass so that you do not lose as much heat when the machine adds water to the boiler.

My rancilio classe 8 has the water run out to fast first it happened on one side now its on both sides. We run it manually. Do you have any suggestions


Adjust the grind of the coffee you are using finer, I don't know what type of grinder you are using but I will assume it is a commercial one. Adjust it about 2 numbers towards fine that will be a good start.

I have a brand new Rancilio Classe 8 and it appears that the pump is not working. The machine was previously on another espresso cart, but was never used. However, the boiler was already filled. Note: it...


The pump may have some scale making the impeller stick. First remove it and attempt to turn the impeller shaft with a pliers. You may be able to unstick it. If not, you will need to use an aggressive descaler that you should completely soak the pump in. 50% muriatic pool acid is what I use. If after this, the impeller shaft will not budge with a pliers, your pump is no good and this is a very common problem in machines that sit. You will have more scale problems from that machine sitting, so get ready.

Your boiler is flooding because the water level probe is not behaving properly. The machine thinks it needs water.

My rancilio epoca s1 won't start.


HI
Without being in front of it, there are a couple of things to check.
1. There is a reset button on top of the boiler. It is a black top with a red button in the center between 2 wires.
2. The water tank needs to be emptied and then refilled.That is the first things I would check.
