New to this forum and will appreciate any feedback. My Silvia with PID is probably 10 years old and has been a very reliable machine. A couple years ago it stopped running water through the group head. I found a video and cleaned the solenoid. It worked another few years. Just now it had the same symptoms so I pulled the solenoid and it was clogged. Cleaned it and reassembled it. Turned it on and water came from somewhere in back of and above the solenoid. Redid the solenoid procedure with the same result. I still cannot determine where the leak is. To add to this disaster the unit now breaks the circuit breaker when ever I turn it on. Bad solenoid coil?

Water+electricity=bad. Time to remove the case and inspect further to be sure.
