ESAM 4500 making too cold coffee

I just got myself a Delonghi ESAM 4500 and even though I program it to make the coffee extra hot it is only warm. Around 65 degrees Celcius. Is it possible to program the machine so that the whole scale moves a bit up? I would like the setting "warm" to be warmer and the extra hot setting to be really hot (80 to 85 degrees Celcius) Is there a service code or something that will make it possible to move the setpoint for tixed temperature settings on this machine - or is it possible to "cheat" the machine by exchanging the sensor with another one?

I had this problem too. The instruction manual says to turn the steam knob only half way counter-clockwise after pressing the button for 5 seconds, but you need to turn it ALL the way to have the procedure start (at least, that was the solution with my machine). Good luck!

I had this problem until I realised that you need to switch the machine off by pressing the on/off button on the front of the machine first *before* switching it off at the back and unplugging it. This moves the infuser unit further to the bottom and then allows you to take it out.

The machine is not flashing an error message. When a problem is detected you get an error message on display.

First hold down ESC (or STOP/CLEAR depending on model), just in case machine is stuck in programming mode.

Disconnect power cord for two minutes. Connect back and try a reset if the problem is not fixed:

•Press the CHANGE button and the appliance displays "RESET TO DEFAULT YES";
•Press the OK button to reset the factory default values;
•Press the MENU button to exit programming mode or NEXT to change other parameters.

If that does not work, try holding down rinse or descale. If the machine starts rinse or descale, complete the procedure. If machine gets stuck in rinse or descale, keep filling the container while performing the procedure.

If all that does not fix the problem, call Delonghi at the number listed on the owners manual, the machine is defective.

Try all the rest first, or Delonghi may ask you to do some of the same procedures while operator is waiting at the phone.

I have Delonghi ESAM 6900....when using the automatic coffee function when it put the milk in the cup it's not very hot...???? I have put the coffee to extra hot....but still in the cup it's like...

If this ESAM is like the earlier 3500, the water heater element is actually a pair of heater elements in parallel but in the same aluminium moulded unit. Being in parallel they act independently
of each other. If one goes open circuit then not enough heat is supplied to the water. Result is coffee a bit hotter than luke-warm.
The only answer is to buy a new part. You can't replace the single duff element because it's in the moulding.

Can you incresase water temp on the ESAM 4200 model?

Get a thermometer and measure the temperature of the coffee 10mm below the nozzle while making a long black. A fully functional machine will be between 80 and 86 degrees Celsius depending on the temperature set in the menu. (normal through to very hot) Significantly less than this indicates limescale buildup. Try descaling. If nothing else works, you may require a new boiler.
