Question about DeLonghi BAR 6

1 Answer

Blinking light The red light over the power button is flashing. This began after a recent power outage; although the functions of the machine appear to be fine. I have been able to make coffee and use the timer for the coffee; I have not yet tried to use the espresso section.

Re: Blinking light

The scale contained in the water, over time, will
cause plugging up of some elements in the appliance
and will thereby compromise its correct functioning.
The result will be that more time is
required to make coffee. The formation of scale
depends on the hardness of the water and on how
much the coffee maker has been used. To achieve
the best performance, descaling must be carried
out every so often. The coffee maker has a built-in
system that counts the number of cups of coffee
that have been made. The ON DRIP pilot light will
begin to blink when it is time to carry out descaling.
To do so, proceed as follows:
• remove the anti-chlorine filter (if present) and the
permanent filter from the coffee maker (so as not
to bathe them with vinegar)
• Dissolve 2 dessert spoons (about 30 grams) of
citric acid (available in pharmacies) in the
• Place the container on the heating plate;
• Press the DRIP/AUTO button twice, allow
the equivalent of two cups to percolate and then
turn off the appliance;
• Allow the solution to sit for an hour;
• Turn the appliance back on and allow the rest of
the solution to percolate;
• Rinse by allowing the coffee maker to operate
with only water at least three times (1 full container
each time).
• Press the PROG and DRIP/AUTO buttons
simultaneously to reset the counter to zero.
IMPORTANT: if the machine is left unconnected to
the electrical mains for over two months, before
using it again it is necessary to carry out the
process of scale removal as described in the preceding

Hi my breville barista express does not grind the beans, and the "single/double" light is blinking, what is the problem?

My wife tried to make my coffee and long story short, she removed the lid to "move the beans around"..The grinder stopped working and the filter size lights began flashing intermittently. After taking the whole thing apart, the only REAL problem is that the lock mechanism inside the hopper came unlocked. So put your machine back together and "lock" the hopper. The lights will stop flashing...lets hope

When you press the coffee button , and the top and bottom lights are flashing, that means the grinder is either jammed or out of order. If the machine is less than 2 years old, the service center will replaced it under warranty.

That is the descale light, you should run a descale through the machine. After you have done that hold on the water button and the descale light will go away

I lost power and now I get blinking lights on my le Cube 185

I had a similar problem where both Small and Large cup buttons on mine blinked intermittently. I did a reset of the large and small cup flow levels based on the following and it seems to work fine now:
1. Switch off power 2. Press and hold Large cup button 3. Switch on power while still holding down large cup button
See if that solves your problem.

Press the button in the upper right corner. When the light flashes, release the button.

Make sure the brewing unit, dregsbox and driptray is in position.

Try to open the steam knob and make a cup of water.

Hope this will help you.

Power off

Try this and let me know if it works - plug the coffeemaker in, turn the function knob to BREW, and then press all 3 buttons in the center of the coffeemaker (the 1-4 button, et, etc) and hold them for a few seconds. Let me know if the clock display comes back on.
