Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Gran Dama EASM6600 Stainless Steel Espresso Machine

2 Answers

Cappuccinos not consistent, sometimes not frothy at all

All settings chosen for cappuccino, does it require a certain milk (1%, 2%, whole milk) to make a good froth. Love the machine, Delonghi Gran dama is used a lot. Any way to get extra froth for "dry"? Misplaced manual but not sure it really says much about all the buttons. Maybe I'm wrong. Thanking you in advance for your assistance.

Unlike Captain Helpful (Tom Torre) who simply points you to your owners manual - as an actual user of the machine you own, I have found the rubber o-rings which are at the inlet on the machine and on the actuator on the milk container need to be replaced. Once you do that, you should be back in frothy-town!

The higher the concentration of fat in the milk the thicker the foam.
Go to delonghiusa.com and look under "manuals" in customer service.

Milk steamer not frofing properly


As others have pointed out the rubber 'O' ring seals may be missing or damaged preventing a good seal.
But another problem can be the water heater (horse-shoe shaped) not getting up to a high enough temperature. This can be caused by the thermal sensor going open circuit so indicating a high temperature to the electronic control system. When the unit is cold (at room temperature) the sensors should measure about 120K ohms resistance.
When this fault occurs your cappuccinos will be luke warm and the milk will splutter out of the spout.
Aso ensure you de-scale the unit as this will restrict the water flow and act as an insulator, reducing the effectiveness of the heaters.

Milk may not be frothed optimally. In these cases simply turn the flow regulator as shown in the figure.
Turn the regulator 2-3 times to perform a quick maintenance.
Note: If the assembled regulator is missing, replace it with the other 3 regulators provided.

ICAPP-4 - A Wiki Manual


Cuisinart ICAPP-4 – Iced Cappucino and Hot Espresso Maker – A Wiki Manual
By Tha Mp3 Doctor (who also loves Cuisinart)

Since I am not well-versed in the copyright laws regarding reprinting copies of standard user’s manuals online, I am writing this Wiki Manual for the ICAPP-4. My unit is 12 years old (in 2009) and continues to run strong through two different owners.
General Directions for Making Iced Cappuccinos
- Place carafe on top of drip/tray grate with handle touching right front of ICAPP – the ice fill lines should be visible when looking at front of unit
- Turn “milk knob” to OPEN position, and open lid of ICAPP
- Remove milk container, espresso collector, espresso spinner cup and cover
- Put espresso collector back in place with two plastic teeth facing front of machine
- There is a stepped fill line inside water reservoir that measures off 1,2, and 4 cups
- Fill water reservoir with either 1,2 or 4 fill line cups – do not overfill to avoid damaging the electronics
- Add espresso grounds to espresso spinner cup
- Line up teeth of spinner cup cover with spinner cup so that the cover locks into place
- Fill milk reservoir with 3 oz of milk per cup of iced cappuccino that you plan to make – there is a fill line that measures off 2 cups or 4 cups
- Fill carafe with either 2 cups worth of ice or 4 cups, depending on how much iced cappuccino you plan to make
- Press down on lid and turn milk knob to HEAT postion
- Turn ICAPP on using the ON/OFF button – it will begin to heat – takes about 5-6 minutes (HEAT light will stay on during this process – doesn’t make noise or steam for several minutes)
- When READY light turns green, turn the milk knob to the DISPENSE MILK position – your espresso and milk will start dispensing
- Unit turns itself off automatically when ready – takes several minutes

CAPPACHINO SETTING NOT FROTHING MILK PROPERLY


Make sure the milk lid is thoroughly clean and that hot running water flows through the openings freely. Make sure you're using 2% milk. Make sure it's cold 2% milk. If you're already done those things, it's probably a bad "coupler unit." That means sending your machine to a service center. In that event, I hope that your machine is still under warranty. This is what happened to my ESAM3500. The good news is that I got my machine back, with a new "coupler unit," in just one week, and now I am back to "like new" cappuccinos

First off, the best milk for foam is skim milk (0% fat). The higher the fat content, the less foamy your foam will be.

The foam is created by the steam/hot coffee from the lower part being forced through the doohickey and into the milk. That means that if the coffee itself isn't "perfect", the foam won't be "perfect". I've found that using different types of coffee (e.g. different grinds) or filling the coffee bin to different levels results in more or less steam/pressure being passed through, so the foam is better/worse. For example, if I put too much ground coffee in the bin or use too fine a grind, it blocks the water/steam that's going through the coffee, resulting in less coffee and weaker coffee, and also resulting in less foam.

I need instructions for a Cuisinart Iced Cappuccino Maker


I have a PDF of the user manual if you want me to e-mail it to you. In the meantime, here is my Wiki Manual (BTW, pagan, the machine does make hot espresso or cappucino, but it doesn't froth per se like a regular espresso machine - it just heats the milk internally and dumps it into the espresso):
