    Silvia Heating Problem

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi
    Recently sold my 7 year old Silvia to a relative who says that it isnt heating up.
    My question - is it possible to buy the heating element separately, or does it come as a boiler/heating elemen unit?

    I sold it for what seems to be the cost of the boiler/heating element unit.

    Thanks
    Terry

    From what I can tell, its separate. Check Coffeeparts from the Site Sponsors list on the left. Are you sure its the heating element?

    I havent had a chance to have a look at the machine.

    Maybe a switch problem to check first?

    I posted this troubleshooting guide awhile back on the US Coffeegeeks.com site. *You may find it helpful.

    Maybe not if it is a 7 year old machine.... Might have the old (better) style Boiler that allows one to just replace the heating element and not the entire Boiler. You will still need a new seal as well though if the element does need replacing.

    Cheers :)
