Cleaning the calcium carbonate accumulated inside the boiler.Put only 200 ml of water in the water tank then add a 100 grams of citric acid cristals.Do not use coffee holder and open the machine and wait the heater ready lamp .Start the pump .Collect the pumpes acidic water in a cup.When the cup is filled stop the pump and recyle the water collected in the cup to water tank.Ater repeating this recycling 2 -4 times all crystals will be dissolved and the boiler will be filled with this weak acid solution.Wait the machine closed 2 hours.Then put fresh water and run the pump and remove the solution.Now your machine is free of scales inside the boiler. You will notice less noise during boiling of water inside the boiler(not pump noise).After some usage if you notice again that high noise of water boling it is time for another cleaning.

Poor performance


Maybe the screen is clogged with coffee oils, or the boiler needs to be descaled, or the pump is going out.

Delonghi bar 18 oump driven esp maker won't pump water


It may be a stupid suggestion but have you checked the strainer in the reservoir? It Could be blocked. And if you haven't removed the brew head sieve recently? It could be gunked up.

For cleaning it's best t use citric acid packets sold in stores as it hurts the metals inside the tank the least, but in a pinch you can use vinegar, although it's much more corrosive and could hurt the machine.

When using a cleaner remove the brew head sieve, as a lot of junk will collect and can block the sieve, with resulting no flow for brewing.

Hope this helps!

My espresso is too watery. Any ideas?


You should add more coffee so the resistance of the running water thought it to more. The running of the coffee should be arount 20 -25 sec for 30 cc of coffee. Coffee dose of about 7-8 gr for a sinlge espresso

Espresso machine will not make Espresso.


Try this remove the portafilter and press the brew button, if water comes out of head, machine is fine but the grind or the tamping(packing pressue) used on the coffee is not right. If you are grinding the coffee just before using it, try a coarser setting. If you pre grind at the store then try tamping the coffee lighter.

Hi Visit this link and see if your machine is here. The possibility is that BAR 4 and BAR 14 could be one in the same machine:
