Rancilio Silvia M V5 Espresso Machine

No one knows the Rancilio Silvia better than 1st-line Equipment! We have been carrying the Rancilio Miss Silvia espresso machines since 1998 and up until today’s current version, the Rancilio Miss Silvia M espresso machine. In fact, in the mid-2000’s, we had the luxury of meeting Miss Silvia Rancilio in person.


  • Rancilio Silvia V5 espresso machine has a new insulated boiler design with a stainless steel heating element inside.
  • Rancilio Silvia now has a plastic guide around the steam wand knob so the metal body does not cut into the knob.
  • Over Pressure valve (OPV) is now adjustable on our Silvia’s. You can adjust the amount of excess water pressure by bringing out the OPV and tightening the nut. We recommend doing this with the V512 pressure gauge.
  • To avoid burning oneself, our Silvia’s are equipped with a rubber protector on the steam wand.
  • Boiler, grouphead, steam nozzle, steam valve, and chrome filter holder constructed of press forged marine brass.
  • Three thermostats – coffee, steam, & safety – unlike many other espresso machines which just have two thermostats! Please note the coffee thermostat is not adjustable – this means that if you want to change the temperature of the machine, you will need to change to a higher temeprature thermostat.
  • Three way solenoid valve opens after you depress the coffee switch to stop brewing. It allows the excess water pressure in the grouphead and portafilter to exit to the drip tray. This is why you may sometimes find water in the drip tray after brewing.
  • Powerful 41 watt vibration Ulka pump.
  • Visible heating light for brewing and steaming.
  • Separate switch for hot water supply. Steam knob needs to be in the open position for water to come out of steam wand.
  • Body and control panel made of beautiful satin stainless steel finish which is easy to clean and mounted on a strong, iron frame.
  • Accessories: chrome-plated, commercial-sized portafilter, 1-cup and 2-cup filter baskets, coffee measure scoop, and coffee tamper.

      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.
