This Rancilio Silvia Boiler with Heating Element will work with all Silvias manufactured after 2006. It is important to first check your Silvia for compatibility as parts are non-returnable. Please refer to the image below of the opened top of a compatible Silvia, shown as V2 or V3 - also V4. If you have a V2 or V3, the included wiring harness will extend your wiring to reach the new placement of this boiler heating element. Note that the pipe for steam connects to the top of the boiler (as opposed to the side on a pre-2006, or V1). The image below shows all versions of the Silvia boilers. The boiler to the right is the part for sale. If your boiler matches the one on the left, you must add the extra plumbing kit to make the water connections for your V1 Silvia work with this newer boiler. All previous boiler versions from Rancilio are discontinued, and this is now the only part available for sale.
|Name:||Rancilio Silvia Boiler Replacement, Upgraded for V4 and Newer - For V1 with Extra Plumbing Kit|
The item description is not yet fixed, so let me clarify, this kit is for Silvias manufactured BEFORE 2006, and it includes the optional plumbing kit required for V1 boiler compatibility. Everything you need to upgrade a V1 Silvia boiler is in this kit, and the price is great. If you have a pre-2006 Rancilio Silvia with the original boiler, buy this kit, because if you don’t need it now, you soon will, and who knows how long this will be available.
