Question about DeLonghi ESAM6600 Espresso Machine

Open Question

No Display on ESAM6600

240volt Second hand machine: On turn on the three coffee buttons have blue lighting around their edges for a few seconds then that turns off. There is no display at all. Seems to make coffee but pressing water button doesn't dispense hot water from hot water spout. Don't have milk jug so can't check that to see if that is operating correctly. Seems a bad, dim or dead display is common on these machines so any help in fixing the problem is appreciated.

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: milk container won't fit onto front of machine

We had the same problem & worked out that it's because the actual milk container is too cold & has contracted from being in a cold part of the fridge. We moved the milk container to the door of the fridge ( it's a little warmer than the rest of the fridge) & it slotted in perfectly the next morning!

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.

SOURCE: no water is pumping thru the water spout or the

I got this machine and there was grinding noise but no water coming from the spout or coffee from the dispenser.

Took the back cover off. The big lump in the middle is the water pump. One of the wire connections was hanging off mine. Pushed the connector back on and everything worked fine.

Great coffee, rubbish construction!

I have a Briel MultiPro espresso maker. When I try to make coffee, water/coffee starts running over the edge of the basket and it "spurts" coffee and grounds after a few seconds.


The group head gasket needs to be cleaned or replaced. First get a brush and clean put the head, then insert back wash filter(basket with no holes) in portafilter, make sure that it is seated properly(atleast 90° angle with machine), then run the head if nothing leaks around the portafilter the gasket is fine, if it leaks then replace the gasket. Make sure that you press the stop button before removing the back wash filter.

Flashing Blue Light


I have found that if I turn off the machine for a few seconds and turn it back on, the burner seems to re-energize strongly and the water heats and a few minutes later, it seems as good as new. I know that this is not the the technical solution to the true underlying problem, but it keeps my old machine in the game.

How do I pre brew


I got one of these for xmas, and I was able to program the pre-brew option.

First, turn off the machine.
On the front of the machine, there is series of 5 buttons. (From left to right, they are: Small Coffee, Large Coffee, Pre-ground Coffee, Hot water and Descaling.)

While holding down the 1st (Small coffee) and 4th (Hot water) buttons, turn on the power.
Wait 3-5 seconds before releasing these two buttons. You machine is now ready for programming.

Below the 5 buttons are 4 small lights. If the second light from the left is red, the machine is already programmed to pre-brew. If the light is not red, do the following:

Press the Coffee button (2nd button from the left) once and the second light from the left should glow red. This turns on pre-brewing. (Pressing the Coffee button again will turn off both the light and the pre-brew option.)

Now turn off the power for at least 5 seconds. The next time you turn the machine on, it should pre-brew the coffee.

The process worked great for me the first time, but when I wanted to program the machine to not pre-brew, I had to go through this process a couple of times. Not sure why, though. :-)
