  1. Hello all, Longtime watcher, first-time poster here. Have hadn a Silvia for 7 years, paired with a Super Jolly. Had it serviced at AE Stanton in West London about 6 weeks ago. Yesterday while steaming, the jet of steam from the wand noticeably reduced in force. It sounds different, and feels less forceful, but still produces steam. So the symptoms: -Steam wand sounds different (less loud) when producing steam -Actual jet of steam less forceful, but still works and is hot -When closing steam knob, the steam slowly decreases in force until it stops, whereas previously it woul
  2. Hi folks. Just picked up a used Silvia 2015 machine and I love it. Only thing is the steam knob is very rattly and easily falls off. Looking online I think I need a steam knob spring but can’t find any info on fitting them. Has anyone done this before? Is it pretty straightforward? Do I need to open the machine to do this? many thanks for any help. Max
  3. Any advice on how to remove the steam knob? Mine is making a weird spring noise and I wanted to check it out. Any other thoughts on how to smooth out the turning action? Thanks! I'm new to this machine and still a noob...
  4. I have had my LMLM for a year now and ever since day one been annoyed by the fact that the steam and water knobs tends to stick when tightened up in the closed position. They are basically designed like a nut on a bolt. So if you want to do a quick steam-off by turning the knob clockwise it will eventually keep turning until the end of the thread - and tighten up against the "bolt head". So I wanted to get rid of this daily annoyance using an otherwise super cool and certainly well designed machine! I solved the problem by inserting a home made two turn helical coil in the knob threa
  5. Hi Guys, Since purchasing my 2010 heavenly, i've been plagued by a leaking steam wand issue. Basically once the boiler pressure is up, the wand starts hissing and small jets of steam/water are leaking from the end of the steam tip. (not where the tip screws on). As much as i tighten the steam knob, i cannot get the leak to stop. Additionally, after steaming a jug of milk, the leak becomes worse for a few days, then seems to subside.. Before I dive in and start dismantling anything, has anyone else come across this issue? I'm assuming something has worked loose, or a seal
  6. Hello. I have the Gaggia Baby Twin less than 1 yr old. The black knob that controls the hot water/steam now rotates too far open, and although the valve can be closed, with minimal force I can rotate it past the point where it should stop/close. Also, when the knob is at a certain position, the pump can be "triggered" but pumps for only 5-10 seconds, then stops. The knob has actually felt slightly "loose" or lax from the first time we used it out of the box. By that I mean the closed position never felt very tight. This is our third Gaggia Baby Twin in so we are not strangers to it. I
