Tip & How-To about DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Machine

DeLonghi EC155 Doesn't Release Water

When I bought my EC155, I heated it up for 30 minutes and tried multiple times to run water through. After multiple attempts the water level remained unchanged.
I was able to fix the problem by opening the bottom of the machine (4 star screws). After opening the bottom, I immediately noticed that one of the plastic pipes was not in the channel in which it was supposed to be and as a result was kinked and sealed off. I simply pushed it into the channel and that fixed the problem.

Why does espresso maker OK light come on just 2 minuets after turning on?


Hi Rustfarmer,

Inside the machine is a high-pressure canister that is used to super heat a predefined amount of water. Once the water has come to a boil, and reached a predefined pressure (15bar) and temperature, the light comes on once the pressure switch is made.

If you have recently used the machine the canister will still be hot or if the water level is below the required minimum the time-to-ready will be greatly reduced causing the light to come on. However, if the light comes on and the water has not come to a boil, it could be due to a few reasons.

If the light comes on and temperature / pressure not reached, it could be due to

  • a faulty heating element or pressure switch,
  • a blocked (due to calcification) water tube, causing the canister to heat up and super heating what ever water is left causing the pressure switch to be made.
These machines are mostly mechanical and requires very little maintenance. The above are the most common problems experienced.

In the case of the pressure switch or heating element, I would suggest checking your warrantee and request a replacement/repair.

In the case of calcification, check the De' Longhi website for a cleaning kit to decalcify the system (Recommended method). If your machine is outside its warrantee period and you do not want to spend the bucks, you could use a home made recipe of white vinegar and water (Not recommended, it could wear down the rubber seals). Just make sure that you rinse the machine thoroughly before making the next cuppa.

Please let us know if you do not succeed and need further assistance.

if you have an ohmmeter, disconnect the cables that feed the resistance and connects the ends of the meter should give a value of element 5 to 30 ohm, if you give infinite that is very high due replacement it, there are also two thermostats one limit and a control, if you use this meter their connections resistance removing the cables connecting them, the measurement should be 0, if it gives you another value or infinite must change.

2002 dodge neon running VERY HOT ... what to do next?


Have you verified that system has been "burped" of air? That the fans kick on? Check radiator hoses for kinks. You can try running without the thermostat to see if that helps and can identify if the thermostat could be a problem. You may need to check your coolant mixture too.
Sounds like you have reduced flow or restriction in cooling (heat exchanger) as it runs fine at cooler temp but can't keep up when it gets warm.
New parts don't always equal working fine parts.
