Delonghi EC 155 general help

Hi
I am complete newbie to coffee brewing and just got the Delonghi EC 155
I read through the instructions which talks about pre-heating the unit for 15 mins
After pre-heating, should I just run hot water through and the fill the filter?
It takes atleast 5 -6 mins to get some decent espresso . Some times, steam starts coming out the unit.

What am I doing wrong here?

    I have the same problem too and looks like my brew pressure is
    considerably low compared to when I got the machine a couple of months
    back, BTW, I cleaned the machine as per the instructions i.e. using the
    both the commercial and the citric acid method but there is no
    improvement. Hope somebody can help us.

You don't have to wait 15 mins. just a few minutes, then run some hot water to warm up the portafilter and dry it up, fill it up with coffee and when you get the gree light again, make your espresso . You will have to have a good fine coffee and make sure to pack the coffee really good and don't leave any around the edges , so could make a good seal. If you have steam coming out of the machine , is maybe to hot and is ready to brew . Cool down the machine after use, run water through it and let the steam out of the nozzle.

How do I program my DeLonghi DCM 485?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First you must set the clock. Page 6 of this pdf manual:

http://www.smallappliance.com/images/SmallAppliance/English/products/standard/DCM485.pdf

Then prgram per instructions at the bottom of page 6 and the top of page 7 of the same manual. I note step 2 is missing from the manual.....


3. Press the CLOCK button until the desired brewing time is displayed

(See "How to Set the Clock" section of the manual).

4. Press the ON/OFF button to confirm the automatic time selected.

NOTE: The display panel and the on/off indicator light will flash.

5. Press the PROGRAM button to return to the current time of day (the

ON/OFF button will continue to flash.) The brewing cycle will begin

once the set time is reached and the ON/OFF button stops flashing.

6. If you want to check the automatic time selected, press the

PROGRAM button.

7. To override the automatic brew function, press the ON/OFF button

and the coffee maker will start immediately. Press the ON/OFF
button again to switch the coffee maker off.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Suddenly stopped working.


If you are talking that the while unit failed or just the coffee? If the light comes on and the coffee is not brewing than it is the heat plate fuse. You need tamper torx bits to open the unit and replace the fuse, radio shack sells them.
