Overview: 2020 Updated Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
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!

Silvia-boiler

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.
Silvia-wand

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.
Silvia-controls

Controls

  • 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.
Silvia-tank

Tank/Reservoir System

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

Grouphead

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

Silvia-tray

Drip Tray / Grill

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

Silvia-pump

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.
Silvia-accessories

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.

      Hi! I have a Silvia. I think it's a v3 - it was purchased from 1st-line on or before 2018. I descale on a regular basis using Durgol descaling liquid. I turned on my Siliva yesterday morning and it heated up as expected. When I went to froth my milk (I do this before pulling my shots per the Siliva manual), the frothing pressure seems low. When I pulled my shot, I had the same issue. The same grind normally produces a great crema but instead, the shot was dark with only a slight hint of creama on the outside edges of the cup. I've tried back flushing (similar to the recommendation on this page for the person with the OPV issue) and I was unable to resolve the situation. Does any of this ring a bell as to what the cause might be? I'll happily bring it in (quick drive to your location) for a repair review, etc if needed but had hoped to fix it myself if possible. Please let me know!

      Please check the steam tip to make sure it is clear. Otherwise, we would need to inspect the heating element.

    2. Hi Java Jim! If you remember,I bought a rancilio silvia back in late fall (I think October or November but can't remember at the moment). Recently I've noticed a knocking noise when the pump is under pressure (when I'm pulling a shot). If I just preheat or flush, I do not get that noise. Is this something to be concerned about?

      Rancilio said this was the OPV operating correctly.

    4. My Silvia V2 doesn't have a cover like this -- instead it has a strong metal one which simply wraps around the group instead of being screwed on from the top. I'd like to replace the one mine has with the black plastic one. But since my machine doesn't use this type of cover, I don't have the screws for it. Do you know what type of screws the black plastic one uses -- and do you sell them? I looked in the parts diagrams but, like the Group Cover Bracket, the screws are illustrated but are not given a parts number!

      Sorry, every coffee bean blend is different and requires a different number. To make matters worse, a setting 10 on one Rocky does not equate to the same grind fineness on a setting 10 on another Rocky grinder.

    10. Hi! I have a Silvia V2 I purchased from 1st line a number of years ago, and frequently buy parts from the firm to keep it in great shape. Here's the current problem. When in the brew cycle, water, lots of it, comes out to the solenoid drain quickly filling the pan. this just happened today for the first time. Very little coffee comes out of the group head. The question is this: Is this indicative of a need to replace the solenoid? Or, is it or could it be another problem? If another problem, any ideas? Solutions and recommended parts? Thanks for your help and expert advice!!

    14. I have a Rancilio Silvia with the Dual PID XMT7100 and it is no longer heating. The element posts show 16.8 ohms of resistance, steam and safety thermostats show continuity. The top PID has a small red light showing that it is signaling for it to heat but the orange light does not come on. Is it the SSR? Only one of the 2 SSR have the red indicator light on. What could be the problem? Thank you.

      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.

      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.

      If looking to upgrade the included tamper, the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine needs 58mm.

    28. I bought a Silvia from 1st-Line in March 2002 (F.n. 60020xxx). It needs a repair now: The steam knob spins and doesn't close. Water discharges from the steam wand when the machine is pumping for espresso. The machine can't be used therefore. Including shipping the machine to you and back to me (I am in the Washington, DC area), is it worth repairing? What is the range of how much would the repair be? Thanks, George

      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.

      Hi,

      Here is a link to the part: 10880150.

      Currently out of the stock. Please add your email to the waiting list.

    32. My Silvia, bought from you and manufactured in late 2007, continues to make expresso (slower than before) but will not produce hot water or steam for frothing. It has a pretty new pump which is slow to get suction and start pumping when pulling a shot. There are bubbles coming our of the overflow tube during the temperature maintenance part of the cycle. I'm guessing the problem lies with the 3-way solenoid but before I remove it for cleaning or replacing I thought I'd ask you what you think the problem is. I'm otherwise a happy Silvia owner and am pleased with the parts and service you've provided in he past. I hope you can help me now.

      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.

    34. Looking down on my espresso machine from its front, after taking off the top plate, I can see two thermostats on top of the boiler. I measured the temperature at the machine's grouphead, and it is about 180 to 185F. According to literature, the ideal temperature for extracting espresso is 190 to 196F. Which of the two thermostat on the top of the boiler would I change to attain the optimal brewing temperature: the one on my left or the one on my right? Do you stock a 190F thermostat for this machine?

      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.

    36. I removed and replaced the boiler on my Silvia V3 and now when applying power it blows fuses. To further troubleshoot the issue I removed the leads to the boiler and all is fine. My guess is the boiler overheated and possibly shorted out one of the thermo-couplers. Any insight?

      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?
