    Rancilio Silvia V3 - Removing Steam Wand Tip

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey All,
    Hoping someone has had the same issue as me with any advice.

    When using the steam wand, the steam/water is inconsistent and appears to be getting stuck when coming out of the wand.

    My Silvia is heating up properly, brewing great shots and increasing in temperature when I flick the steam button. So doesn't seem to be a temperature/boiler issue.

    So i'm guessing there is some buildup of calcium etc in my steam wand arm and tip.

    I've taken the steam wand arm completely off the Silvia however having LOTS of trouble getting the single hole tip unscrewed from the arm itself.

    Anyone done this before? I'm trying to unscrew to the left however no luck. Also tried opposite way and thing just seems to be glued on there.

    Any help or advice MUCH appreciated, thanks!
