Over time, the continuous heating up of the water used to make the coffee leads to lime scale building up in
the inner circuits of the appliance.
When the appliance displays the message:
DESCALE
you should perform the descale cycle.
Proceed as follows:
• make sure the appliance is ready.
• press the button (the light over the button comes on) then press the button repeatedly until
the appliance displays:
DESCALE No
• Press and the appliance displays the message:
DESCALE Yes
• Press the button to start the descale programme.
• Empty the water tank and add the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus
one litre of water. For subsequent descaling, use descaler of the same type and brand as supplied
(available from technical service centres authorised by the manufacturer).
• attach the water spout to the nozzle;
• place a container with a minimum capacity of 1.5 litres under the hot water spout (Fig. 3);
• press the button. Descaler runs off from the hot water spout into the container below. The appliance
displays:
APPLIANCE IN DESCALE
• the descale programme automatically performs a series of run offs and pauses to remove lime scale
deposits from inside the coffee maker.
• After about 30 minutes, the appliance displays:
RINSING FILL TANK
The appliance must now be rinsed through to eliminate residues of descaling solution from inside the appliance.
Proceed as follows:
• empty the water tank, rinse and fill with clean water.
• Reposition the tank.
• Empty the full container and then put it back under the hot water spout.
• Press the OK button. Hot water is run off from the spout into the container below and the appliance displays:
RINSING
• When the water tank is empty, the appliance displays the message:
RISRINSING COMPLETE PRESS OK
• Press the OK button and refill the water tank with clean water.
• The descale programme is now terminated and the appliance is ready to make coffee again.
NOTE: if the descaling cycle is interrupted before completion, the appliance continues to display the descale
message and the programme must be started again from the beginning. Empty the water tank, rinse, fill with
clean water and run off a cup of hot water.
IMPORTANT: FAILURE TO DESCALE THE APPLIANCE REGULARLY INVALIDATES THE GUARANTEE.

More than likely the grinder is either not grinding at all or there is a blockage preventing the grounds reaching the brew chamber.

Is it possible to remove the beans from the DeLonghi Gran Dama?


I actually did this to my old machine because I was selling it. There are two ways to do this. Unplug the machine and remove the water canister. You can then gently tip the machine over a container or paper to catch the beans when the fall out of the machine.

The other option is to vacuum them out with the long crevice attachment for your vacuum.

Both work.

Delonghi gran dama display light out


This is a common problem fixed by replacing the control board. The part number is 5213214851 and costs around $135. It is a rather easy fix for someone who can take things apart and put them back together using basic tools.

Or, sending it to a reputable shop will cost about $40 for shipping each way, plus around 1.5 hours of labor, and maybe a small markup on ordering the part for you.

ESAM6600 will not froth milk


Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath


I had frothing problem as mentioned above and noticed this tube was blocked, its 4 years I have had the Gran Dama 6600.


Cleaned as mentioned and did some purge as I went along, now it works as new. Its a maintenance that should be done once a year. You learn as things happen. LOL

Cappuccinos not consistent, sometimes not frothy at all


The higher the concentration of fat in the milk the thicker the foam.
Go to delonghiusa.com and look under "manuals" in customer service.
You'll need to know your model #
