Subject: Silvia clearances
Silvia is on her way. Time to prepare a place for her. Can someone tell me
how much clearance is required to remove the water tank? Also, does the cup
warmer radiate enough heat to be concerned about the cabinet above her?

If you notice CHARRING of the wood cabinet, it is too close.

[[BTW -- The "cup warmer" is another fraud the Italians are foisting on
the world -- like Alfa Romeos]]

Also, does the cup warmer radiate enough heat to be concerned about
the cabinet above her?

Remove the water tank?? why? just remove the lid.

and you have to pull it (not her) out to fill.

and when you have it out to fill, you can remove the white tank for an
occasional cleaning.

Jeff,
I only have about 10" and I fill her up with a large glass. I only
need to move her for cleaning. It works fine for me.

If you have cabinets above, you'll either have to move the machine or
pour into it. But, you'll know in a couple of days, right?

No.

We only have 18" clearance between upper and lower cabinets, so she will
have to go on the bar where there are no upper cabinets. But there was a
wall phone above that location ["was", because I just finished moving it and
filling in the hole in the sheet rock]. I can have it repainted by the time
Silvia arrives. Thanks.

22 inches clear from countertop to underside of cabinet is the minimum.

It takes a fair amount of room to remove the water tank. (I'm guessing
about 10 - 11") Since I started refilling mine with a 2 liter plastic water
bottle I have not removed it. (Punch a hole above the shoulder of the
bottle to keep from gurgling)
I don't think it has a cup warmer per se, but rather the top of the unit
becomes warm due to heat from the boiler.
In my experience the cups never get very warm so you shouldn't have any
problem with a cabinet above Silvia.
