Question about DeLonghi Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

Steam pipe not working

Our machines is De'Longhi Icona ECO310.R Pump Espresso Machine, and we have the steam pipe working before. Now we turn the machine on and follow the instructions and try to use the machine and the pipe remains cold, the top of the machine becomes red hot and unable to touch and we turn it for safety. There is water leaking out from the bottom. It seems like there is loss part from the release valve to the pipe that steams the milk.

To me the pipe is blocked there is a tool to use to clean this pipe out, hard deposits in the water can block the steam pipe and the tool is a thin bendy wire that you put up the pipe to clean the pipe line out. i would think they sell this pipe in most out lets for coffee makers. check for coffee steam pipe cleaner.

Hi Sammy,

I think you have to replace the steam valve and the gasket in it.

Best regards

SOURCE: can't get milk to foam

Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!

SOURCE: unregulated pressure then safety valve releases pouring out steam

Hi there,
It seems to me that your pressure stat which is inside the base of your machine needs replacing. I would try to give it a good descale and if this doesn't do the trick then a new pressure stat is what you need. Prob around £20 if you buy it and do it yourself. www.theespressoshop.co.uk and just click on the little la pavoni machine for full parts list.

All the best

SOURCE: Unable to prime Sirena Espresso Machine

n regards of the no prime issue. this is the only way i could prime this new puppy.make sure its stone cold which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless its primed. first take off steamer plastic tip ,turn on steamer clock wise till pump starts. then **** the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems out of this world but it works. you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump. bravo enjoy!

Why is my new delonghi icona espresso machine steam tube leaking water when I'm not using it, only making espresso.


If it is new, you should return it to the store/manufacturer. The leak should be covered by warranty, however if you attempt any self fix you would void any warranty.

What's wrong with my machine? Espresso is fine, but no steam.


Agree with previous suggestion. The steam pipe is most likely blocked and generally the blockage occurs in the bend of the steam pipe. Either try removing the wand and clearing it or use a thin piece of wire/pipe cleaner and insert it up the pipe. It could alternatively be a piece of limescale blocking it so it may be worthwhile to try descaling the machine if after clearing blockage. Hope this helps.

Ventilate!....shows in window and machine will not ventilate when knob is opened. it has regularly been de-scaled but we do live in a hard-water area.


Generally you can clear the ventilate error by pressing the button for Hot Water and then opening the steam knob. You should hear the pump run and water should start to flow from the steam wand. If it doesn't, try removing the frother nozzle so just the chrome pipe is showing.

To remove the frother nozzle you slide the outer sleeve off, and then grip the nozzle with one hand while twisting the cap to loosen it. Then it should slide off the metal steam pipe. Or you can check that the tip of the nozzle isn't clogged.

If you have the frother removed and the steam pipe is definitely open and not clogged and you still hear the pump running but no water is coming out, the next step is to prime the pump.

If you still have the squeeze bulb pump that came with the machine, you can use that - or if you don't have it, a turkey baster will work. You want to take the water tank off and set it aside, then pump water into the valve in the center where the tank had been sitting. You choose "Hot Water" and open the steam valve so the pump starts and then pump water into that valve with the Turkey Baster. You should hear the pump catch and start to move the water - when this happens immediately close the steam valve so the pump stops - then replace the water tank (filled with water please) and open the steam valve again and let water run out of the steam wand for several seconds.

That should clear the ventilate message.

VENTILATE ERROR


Hi,

Make sure the steam pipe is clean, try to take off the steam pipe and open the steam knob to see if any water is comming out.

How old is the machine?
How often do you descale the machine?
Can you hear the pump start when you open the steam knob?

Gaggia espresso machine won't percolate


Does the steam outlet give water when coffee swith is engaged. If so when you get a flow going, shut the steam valve and water should eventually pout in the cup. If no water pours thru the steam pipe, it's pump failure or blocked wand. If no water at shower depending on last result same problems. Search web for solution i.e. google "jammed espresso machine"
