Good evening all. I wonder if any one can help me please. I recently opened a cafe and managed to get hold of an old 1999 Rancilio MD50 grinder. I don't think it had been cleaned or adjusted for years!!! Got it all working and set up, but have two issues. 1) It only dispenses 6g per dose. Does anyone know if it can be adjusted / how to adjust this to give about 9g 2) It is EXTREMELY noisy. Don't get me wrong I know they are all quite noisy, but this is excessively so - so much so you can hear it out on the pavement! Any ideas please? Many thanks for your help to this newbie. Mark
I'm new here, thanks for any help. My 10 year old Miss Silvia, boiler replaced twice, buttons replaced 3 times, wand replaced once. Not even sure why it is still alive? But I just did a complete maintenance overhaul again (group head seal, screen etc.), and the very next time I used it the pump made a sound. Well, several sounds actually, kind of like the electricity was cutting out to the machine where the pump would start on/off/on/off, but the power light was not on and off, just the pump. Then, the water stopped coming and now the button depressed only creates a hemorrhaging sound. If the boiler has been heated up to steam and the button is pushed, then steam comes out of the group head with bits of water attached, so I don't think it is a blockage. Does it sound like I need a new pump? What is the part number for this? Considering I'm going to have to pull the machine apart anyway, what other parts should I replace while I'm in there to ensure another 5 years of use? Thank you in advance for any comments here.
Hi everyone! I've been (just) surviving for the last 5 years without an espresso machine on filter coffee. Finally, after dropping hints for about the last year, my wife bought me a Rancilio Silvia for Xmas just gone. The new machine is great although it has been quite a learning curve getting the most out of it. Thanks to these forums I've managed to find the answers to all of the problems I've had. I've also finally taken the plunge and got myself a fairly decent grinder, a Mazzer Super Jolly. I've only just picked it up but the few shots I've just pulled have been excellent, a real step up from my Iberital MC2! Looking forward now to really perfecting my coffee in the coming months!
