  • My Silvia had a bug but I fixed it

    It literally had a bug last night.

    Went to clear out the drip tray and a nasty big cockroach was having a swim it. Anyway it legged it inside the machine. The thought of it dying inside there was too yucky to think about so I took the top off and managed to get it out.

    I think Ill be checking inside on a regular basis from now on just in case.. >

    Try and empty the drip tray after use. I think youll find the "bug" made him/her self at home because there was warmth, food and drink available. All a little bug needs to survive Yuck!

    Terrible thought though, i will keep an eye out for such yuckies

          The more he drinks the less often youll have to empty the tray.

            I work in I.T. so Im used to bugs in machines, but not literally.

            Its actually got a serious side to it. If it hadnt happened, I probably would have never bothered taking the top off.

            This is easy to do with the Silvia, just 4 screws undone and you can see right inside the machine. Its worth doing now and again in addition to the usual cleaning / backflushing etc, just to make sure theres nothing nasty lurking inside which could damage the machine.

                I had a mouse (very dead) in the power supply of an offsite ATM once.

                At first I thought my security guard had been on the curry again then I found it.......

                    Crap! My place is quite susceptible to cockroaches in the warmer days. I have found them in the paper towel holder, in gloves, pretty much anywhere that would ensure you get a good scream out when you encounter them. now Ive got another place to worry about them... These are not the small brown ones either. Theyre the 1 inch long Australian bush cockroaches that seemed to have burst out in numbers in the last couple of years. Assuming you keep the all the lids shut on the silvia, what are the entry points for them to get in?

                        I reckon its better to find a full cocky in the silvia than a half cocky in the grinder.

                          Hey NewToEspresso,

                          From the drip tray they can get up behind the front panel and then through a hole into the main area where the boiler is. Plenty of gaps for them to sneak into.
