    Rancilio Silvia Leaking

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    My Silvia is only a few months old and Ive just noticed in the last 3 or 4 days, water coming out from underneath the machine. It seems to happen when the machine is under pressure (brewing a shot).....

    Ive looked underneath the machine while brewing, expecting it to be coming out of the 3 way let off, missing the drip tray or something, but its not dripping near that at all.

    I am going to open it up to have a look but I was just wondering if anyone might know of what to look for ? If theres any known problems like this

    Thanks ,

    To be sure take the panels off
    Run a shot with the blind filter and observe

    Hopefully it is just a not so tight fitting that has a slight leak and just needs nipping up
    Do it soon in case the water is dripping over or near electrical connections on the way down

    Could be just the OPV bypass return.... Sometimes these "fall off" if they havent been fitted properly. Easiest fix is just to remove the silicone tubing from the plastic fitting that is normally attached to and fit the tubing directly over the fitting from the OPV. This may or may not apply to your Silvia but a couple of units I looked at years ago were like this...
