Hi,

Take out the brewing unit and clean it in hot water.

I think I have the solution. The "thwok, thwok, thwok" noise is a solenoid opening and then slamming the trap door that dispenses the coffee. Mine had a similar problem.
Upon removing the top, I found that the solenoid, and further that the mount where it attaches to the plastic frame was broken. Basically, the little plastic fin that should hold the lower flange of the solenoid was sheared off. That left the solenoid free to move, and made it impossible to complete the action to move the dispenser trap door.
It looked like there was no easy way to replace that part of the plastic mount, so I epoxied and zip-tied the solenoid into place. It seemed to do the trick. I doubt it will last forever.

Try descaling the machine. If there is no water getting to the brew unit then it might be blocked, if you checked the brew unit then the blockage might be at the boiler or one of the lines.

SOURCE: leeks coffee into grounds container

HI
You have a stripped thumbscrew. Check the top left side of the brew unit. The thumbscrew is the little rod that sticks out of the top of the center part of the brew head. If there is water in the center cavity that's your problem. If you push down on the rod and check your brerw head screen on the other end it is probably pushed out a little. Pry the screen out, and you should see a barrel nut in the middle of the screw stem. Pull the thumbscrew out from the other end.
The plastic rod that has 2 small hooks on the end and has ribs around the opposite end is your thumbscrew. There is suppose to be a small round nut that is molded into the position between the legs with the hooks. If you use the key to tighten the thumbscrew you will pull the nut out and then the thumbscrew will pop out of the brew head. Check the stem of the filter screen. If you have an item about that is about 3/8 of an inch long and has a grove in the middle and small bumps on it, that’s the nut. You need a new thumbscrew. Remove the old nut on the stem before putting it in the new thumbscrew. Remember it’s a thumbscrew, so it only needs to be finger tight. The key is for removing only.

SOURCE: grinding and dumping coffee without making a cup.

Check the grind it might be too fine, then check the screen under the red o-ring in the brew unit it might be blocked.

More than likely the grinder is either not grinding at all or there is a blockage preventing the grounds reaching the brew chamber.

Is it possible to remove the beans from the DeLonghi Gran Dama?


I actually did this to my old machine because I was selling it. There are two ways to do this. Unplug the machine and remove the water canister. You can then gently tip the machine over a container or paper to catch the beans when the fall out of the machine.

The other option is to vacuum them out with the long crevice attachment for your vacuum.

Both work.

Delonghi gran dama display light out


This is a common problem fixed by replacing the control board. The part number is 5213214851 and costs around $135. It is a rather easy fix for someone who can take things apart and put them back together using basic tools.

Or, sending it to a reputable shop will cost about $40 for shipping each way, plus around 1.5 hours of labor, and maybe a small markup on ordering the part for you.

ESAM6600 will not froth milk


Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath


I had frothing problem as mentioned above and noticed this tube was blocked, its 4 years I have had the Gran Dama 6600.


Cleaned as mentioned and did some purge as I went along, now it works as new. Its a maintenance that should be done once a year. You learn as things happen. LOL

How do i make regular coffe with this machine. The type of coffee you get from cheapest coffee makers. Anyobdy can tell me what settings i need to adjust.


If you need a long cup regular coffee with top quality you should just add hot water in an espresso this called filter cream or americano. If you need the cheap quality as you mention you should adjust the grinder to make the coffee grinding more groase with this coffee will come faster and with pure quality

Cappuccinos not consistent, sometimes not frothy at all


The higher the concentration of fat in the milk the thicker the foam.
Go to delonghiusa.com and look under "manuals" in customer service.
You'll need to know your model #
