Introduction: 2020 Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine with Rocky Doser Espresso Grinder

Rancilio Silvia M V6 Espresso Machine

Firstly, no one knows the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine better than 1st-line Equipment! We have been carrying the Rancilio Miss Silvia espresso machines since 1998. Similarly, we are carrying today’s current version, the Rancilio Silvia M espresso machine.

Over the years decades, Rancilio has made countless improvements to this classic. Furthermore, the latest V6 upgrades include a solid tamper, which replaces the cheap plastic one that most customers discard. Additionally, the grouphead cover is now black plastic, which replaced the chrome-covered one that used to peel constantly. Currently, the wand is stainless steel when the previous wand was made of a chrome-covered brass that also used to peel over time.

In addition, if you are looking for a compatible espresso coffee grinder to grind Miscela d’Oro coffee for your Rancilio Silvia espresso machine, then take a look at the Rancilio Rocky Doser, Eureka Mignon Perfetto, Eureka Mignon Silenzio, or Rancilio Rocky Doserless!

Actually, would you like to upgrade to a Rancilio dual boiler espresso machine? Then learn more about the Rancilio Silvia Pro!


Single Boiler, Dual-Purpose system

  • Brass boiler: Made of a high-quality press forged marine brass. Besides, the small 0.35 L boiler helps keep a constant water temperature and facilitate the espresso coffee extraction. Also, the insulation wrapping helps keep the boiler temperature stable.
  • Stainless steel heating element: This helps reduce the chance of limescale buildup.
  • Three separate thermostats (coffee, steam, & safety): Rather, other espresso machines just have two thermostats! However, please note the coffee thermostat is not adjustable. Thus, if you want to change the temperature of the machine, you will need to change to a higher temperature thermostat.

Steam / Hot Water Wand

  • Stainless steel: V6 UPGRADE! Instead, previous versions were made of a chrome-covered brass that would wear over time.
  • Multi-purpose: Used for both steam or hot water depending on the current mode.
  • Multi-directional: Enables you to prepare creamy cappuccinos.
  • Rubber grip: Protects our fingers when adjusting the steam wand.


  • Visible heating light for brewing and steaming.
  • Accordingly, there is a separate switch for hot water supply. Further, the steam knob needs to be in the open position for water to come out of the steam wand.

Tank/Reservoir System

  • Open top: Unlike others that only have a small hole, this is easier to clean the inside.


V6 UPGRADE! The grouphead cover is made of black plastic. However, the previous ones were chrome-covered and would peel over time.


Drip Tray / Grill

Correspondingly, this is easily removable and cleaned with a non-abrasive cloth and warm water.


Vibratory (Vibration) Pump

  • Efficient: Suitably, this is 41 watts, rated up to 15 bar with air valve bypass. Nevertheless, only 9 bar is necessary to extract espresso. Additionally, wattage has no correlation to longevity.
  • Cost-effective: Unfortunately, pumps will degrade in performance over time. Therefore, replacing a vibration pump will be less costly than a rotary vane pump.

Parts & Accessories Included

  • Portafilters: 58mm dual spout portafilter with a commercial grade handle.
  • Filter baskets: First, there is a 1-cup filter basket that holds approximately 7 grams. In addition, there is a 2-cup filter basket that holds approximately 14 grams.
  • Blind insert: Use with the 2-cup filter basket to backflush the grouphead.
  • Tamper: V6 UPGRADE! A solid 58 mm tamper. Accordingly, there is no need to spend extra money.
  • Coffee scoop: If you are using pre-ground coffee, the Rancilio Silvia comes with a simple plastic scoop.
  • Instructional manual.

Espresso Machine Warning:

  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.
  • WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
  • DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.

      Sorry, we do not get involved with customization that were performed at other dealers or shops. Since we do not perform any PID customization on the Rancilio Silvia, we strongly recommend you contact the dealer you purchased the parts from or the dealer you purchased the customized Silvia from. They would be the best place to determine if the customized parts are the issue.

      If you are unable to perform the repair, you may want to hire a professional. No one ever said repairs are easy. In fact, repairs are difficult.

      Q steam not working. Need part to fix. answer now

      This can be a short created by lack of water in the internal boiler. A full water reservoir does not mean the internal boiler is filled. We have a video about this.

      Please read our article on not heating.

      It could be a bad knob and optional spring. The newer style knobs may not fit older machines. The steam valve may also need a rebuild or replacement. This repair is more difficult to perform. We are sorry that we can not offer a repair estimate without evaluating the machine.

      It could be a faulty overpressure valve that is not sealing.Put the blind filter in the portafilter which is to be inserted into the grouphead. Put descaler in the reservoir after removing any filters or softeners in the reservoir. Depress the coffee switch for 30 seconds on and 1 minute off. Repeat 5 times after a 2 minute rest each time. Check for flow. Repeat process after rinsing with reservoir and filling with water only. Test if problem goes away. If not, a new OPV may be needed.

      Or, it can also be a bad heating element. Plug the machine into a GFI outlet and see if the GFI trips the power. There are multiple versions of this heating element. It is strongly advisable to check the one on your machine before ordering. Most older machines need to be replaced with this one. Really old ones use this one.

      Please note that temperature measurement is a science. By the time the temperature reaches from the heating through the water through the brass wall to the thermostat, the water can be hotter than what you are measuring.

      Therefore, we ask to not change the thermostats as you may cause damage from making the water create more pressure and leak through the OPV which would burn up/damage the heating element.

      When this occurs, there is usually a short circuit in the heating element. The heating element posts need to be tested with a multimeter or continuity tester to check if the heating element circuit is closed or open. If one is not familiar with the use of a multimeter or continuity tester, we suggest that the machine be evaluated by a professional as electrocution, damages or personal injuries can occur.

      1st-line Equipment will not assume, nor be responsible for any risks, personal injury or any/all damages that may result from a person testing or repairing equipment for defects or faults.

      A I also have the issue of my machine blowing fuses. Can you suggest a reliable technician near or in the 66224 zip code?
