over the last several months, the steam capability has seemed to degrade. the heater doesn't kick on till the steam is almost gone. I've descaled several times but I've never been able to resolve this issue.
so I bought a replacement steam thermostat off amazon, 140 degree. looking for a step by step guide.
I did see a you tube on resetting the thermostat, and this one has a red button on the top. the one I bought for $14 did not have a red button.
did I buy the wrong thing?
is there a teardown showing where the thermostat is?
I've had this machine for a couple of years but don't know what version it is.
on the silvia you have a165c RESETTABLE safety thermostat (with red or blue depending on the age or any other color push in ) 140c steam self reset 100c brew self reset (used to be 110c in older machines) if you care to see the picture of them you can see them on our web page
