Question about DeLonghi ESAM6600 Espresso Machine

Open Question

Delonghi esam6600 has no display.

Second hand machine: On turn on for a brief moment the three 'coffee' buttons are backlit with a purple/blue light then these all go off. There is no display but machine appears to be working. I can make a coffee - though I can't get any hot water from water outlet. Don't have the milk jug so can't test that aspect. of operation. Seems a bad, dead or dim display is a common problem with these models so any assistance is appreciated Mike

SOURCE: DeLonghi Alicia EMK6 - H20 error

Here is the link to the instruction manual if you need it; http://www.delonghi.co.uk/pdf_files/EMK6.pdf There is no information regarding this error message available online, but I think you are right and it relates to water - probably the sensor of the water level is stuck/blocked/scaled up. you can try descaling using white vinegar 50/50 solution with water, leave it overnight. Give the whole unit a good shake, in case the level sensor is a mechanical float device and it is stuck. See if any change. You can call Delonghi/Comet from this link; http://www.delonghi.co.uk/service_info.php hopefully they will tell you for certain what the error message means - if they do and it is different from what is discussed above, then please ask again if you want to try and solve the problem yourself. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: water container full but low indication on

I think the water level is read by a magnetic pick up driven by a black floater located 3/4 way towards the back of the water tank.
Make sure this floater can move up and down in its pocket: you can see it through the walls so just shake the tank to see it move, and check that it floats up when you fill water

SOURCE: EAM3500S will not froth milk ?

First, check to see if it will pump out steam without a ton of water. If it doesn't, don't use it.

Now, skim milk is terrible for it, the bubbles are too dry and flavorless. Use 2% milk or half-and-half. It should be cold (very cold). I put mine in the freezer in a steel frothing container for 5-10 minutes before use. Just barely submerge the wand (about .25") and turn on the pressure. It should sound like tearing paper (not like blowing bubbles through a straw). Do this until volume increases to around double (if you have a frothing thermometer, it should be around 100 degrees F). Now submerge the wand farther and tilt the cup to create swirling (this is called stretching & sweetens the milk). This should be done until the temperature is around 140-160 degrees F. Done.

If your machine is no good for steam, there's another way: Put milk into a steel cooking pot (I use a saucier for large groups) and put it in the freezer. When very cold (ice forming) put on stove. Whisk briskly while heating up on medium-high. It will create fine foam & stretch the milk at the same time. The bubbles will start big, but become finer as time goes by. I test by stocking my finger in & going until it feels nearly scalding & remove from heat. Just use a ladle for he milk & a spoon for the foam.

SOURCE: Delonghi Magnifica Coffee Maker the milk is not

You did not state anything about descaling, but every now and then, I also add water and descaler to the milk container and use the "Frothing" program to run through the water and descaling-solution (double-click the Cappuchino button).
I have also noticed that the first cup (and sometimes even the second) will produce less milk, and not as well frothed milk as later cups. My theory is that the machine is warmer when producing later cups.
If possible, you could try to run two-three frothings of plain water through before switching to milk. I realize this is inconvenient, but it could be worth testing this to see if it helps. We luckily have two milk containers and keep one filled with water just for the purpose of heating up (or whatever we do :) the frothing system before serving the first cappuchino.
Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a Delonghi Magnifica

I purchased a unit second hand for my wife's birthday today. It's only 4 months old, got it home, tested it, same problem... No froth!

I've read all the posts here and all were very helpful troubleshooting guides however they did not solve the issue.

Understanding how the frothing mechanism functions is half the battle in figuring out the solution. It's a simple vacuum type system. No doubt you've read about checking the orings. This is definately the first thing to check however if this is not the reason then consider the following.

The larger of the white tubes that has the red and black oring inserts deep into its port on the tap. Why? It pushes steam past the milk pipe directly into the chrome frothing tube which causes a vacuum essentially drawing milk up it's hose creating the froth. What you can't see without further investigation is that on the underside of the tube centered between the red and black orings is a small hole. This hole is responsible for drawing the milk upwards. If this is blocked, and it probably is then no milk and no froth. Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath.

So in conclusion. Any air leak between the red and black orings will prevent the vacuum required to draw milk up the tube and alternatively any blockage of the milk channel will also obviously prevent the flow into the frothing mechanism. Hope this helps.

If you are proficient at working on these machines, you should be able to get a replacement display from your local Delonghi agent to fit yourself. The fault is likely to be in the onboard driver or the display itself. Simply replacing it should sort it.

Coffee not hot enough


Ive had this machine for over 3 yrs now and agree the coffee could certainly be hotter. I usually blast hot stream from the milk jug by pressing the clean button for 5-10 secs. This does help. Also by having the cups heated up on top of the machine also helps. But i usually always give the completed coffee a 10 second blast in the microwave to get it to the temp i like. Its not ideal i know, but there seems no other way. Oh and make sure the temp is on high in the menu.

Headlight blue light is flashing and won't do anything else


If you hold down the power button (and keep holding!) while wearing the headphones, you will hear three beeps (keep holding! If you lift your finger, you have wait a moment to start over) followed after a moment by two beeps. If you do this while the headset is NOT on, it will enter the "discoverable" mode and the lights should flash red/blue red/blue. If you do this while the headset is on, the second set of beeps sounds a little different, and those tones mean the headset is turning off.

The "manual" (a single sheet of paper) for this device is a joke, and website technical support is nonexistent.

When I first purchased mine, despite the poor instructions, I was satisfied, due to the low price. But I've only had the device for less than a month, and I've only used it three times, and suddenly I can't get it to pair with my laptop or my phone, though it had worked find a couple of weeks ago, last time I used it.

Sometimes you get what you pay for, I guess. Disappointing.
