SOURCE: DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 when trying to make a

Had this exact problem a few times on a cleaned well maintained milk jug top with an ESAM5500M. Delonghi 'repaired' it by sending a new milk jug frothing top.

It's caused by milk fat deposits, the frother part on the milk jug may look clean but deep inside it's not. I clean mine with pipe cleaners, detergent and hot water and still it wouldn't froth.

The problem re-occurs for me every 6 months or so. You could buy the milk fat remover solution to clean it. Personally I just boil the whole milk jug frother in detergent and the again in descaling solution, that's fixed this problem twice now, although I think it will eventually corrode the 'o' rings on the frother, still cheaper than buying a new frother part each time though.

If it still doesn't work after that, the only other reason for this problem I found mention of was caused by a broken rubber seal where the milk jug fits to the machine. It's most likely to be milk fat deposits inside the frother though.

SOURCE: my delonghi perfecta plus says

Hi,

According to your problem, the 'Close Door' message indicates the service door is open. So first make sure that the service door is closed perfectly. If the service door is closed but you get the same error again then check the infuser is inserted correctly.

Open the service door

Remove the drip tray and the grounds container and clean it. Unlock the infuser and pull it out.

Wash the infuser under running water, without using detergents.

Clean the inside of the appliance thoroughly. To remove coffee encrustations from the inside of the appliance, scrape with a plastic or wooden fork, then vacuum up the residues with a vacuum cleaner.

Replace the infuser by sliding it onto the supports and pin at the bottom, then push the PUSH symbol fully in until it clicks into place.

Then close the service door perfectly. If it doesn't solve your problem then reset the settings of the machine. It will solve your problem.

SOURCE: the door to my DeLonghi

I hope you have solved this problem by now... The door not closing properly happens when coffee grounds build up in the middle of the machine. It tends not to get everything into the waist box. You need a chopstick to fish out the grounds from behind/under the central column of the machine. You'll find a lot of coffee packed in! Then the door will close.

SOURCE: How do I descale my Delonghi Perfecta? Can't

The manual is no longer available at that link. It's better to post an answer than to simply point to a URL...

The answer:

1. Fill the tank with descaling solution (or a vinegar solution, which voids your warranty, but seems to work well...)
2. Power on.
3. Hit the P button (Program). The display changes; instead of the usual icons, you will see the "clean" icon, which looks like rain drops in a circle. (This is for rinsing the coffee drip spigots). Turn the selector wheel to switch to it an icon that looks like a bunch of dots between two vertical bars. This is the "descaling mode."
4. The bottom left button now says "Esc" next to it, and the bottom right is the OK. Hit OK to confirm you want to descale. Then dump the drip pan and put a large container under the WATER spigot (not the coffee drip spigots.) Your descaling solution will come out hot and hard. The machine may pause and re-heat at times, to make sure it's very hot. The solution is hot and acidic - BE CAREFUL! It will go through the entire tank, so use a big container, or be ready to switch it out - or put your machine over the edge of your sink for the job.
5. When the tank is empty, the machine will ask for a refill - this time give it clean water for a rinse. Hit the OK; the entire water tank will be used to rinse.

That's it!

Ground too fine adjust mill comes on about every other cup.


With any coffee grinder (especially those that are used for espresso) the burrs can wear down after a while. It seems like you've used this machine quite a bit and for various different types of coffees. If your machine is still covered by the manufacturer I would suggest contacting them about the problem or call your local specialty coffee shop. They normally have or know of a guy that can fix this rather simple problem for cheap. Happy brewing!

Keeps saying fill beans container when already full


The machine understant that there is not any beans in the container by the mesuring how easily the grinder motor rotates. If there is not any beans in the grinder motor rotates freely. In your case means that the beans from container are blocked to enter down to the grinders disk plates or they partialt enter, so the motor runs more freely and machine understant that there ae not enough beens. So you need to remove the beans and container and by the use of a vaccum cleaner remove all remainings from the grinders entrance and funel. You can also use a brush to remove any coffe oils and remianing so the bean can easily slide inside the grinder.

How do you descale the machine,as we have no manual


Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos.

Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

My delonghi esam5500 coffee bean grinder part is not working. seems to be blocked, can see beans moving when it goes to grind but no beans are taken in and it comes up with fill beans compartment? what...


In our case we were lucky. Grinder was blocked by the beans. This is what I have done with our Delonghi 5400. It looked fiddly but was quite simple really. I started from the back panel. Once back panel was removed I had access to 4 corner screws that remove both side panels. Now that give me access to 4 corner screws that hold top of the machine. I l also had to unscrew 5 screws that hold coffee container in place. 4 are visible once the coffee beans container is open, but the 5th is hidden in the middle of adjustment arm with a black cap on top.(adjusting how fine you grind). I used small sharp screwdriver to lift the cap. Once all are out I removed the top of the machine and then the funnely coffee container too. That exposed grinder assembly. Top of the grinder is actually loosely sitting in the lower part of grinder. Twisting it counter clock should release it I Think. Our was not budging, and I had to completely remove the grinder and detach motor but that is quite obvious too, and probably not needed. I just wasn't sure what I was doing. Our machine was out of warranty so... Would be nice if we had some schematics.

Delonghi DCG49 is suddenly quieter and will not release coffee


Had this problem with my burr grinder, coffee (or something else) is clogged between the burrs and the output chute, so new coffee can't feed in from above. You can try a few things:

1. Unplug and try to dislodge the blockage from underneath with a toothpick.
2. Disassemble and remove the blockage.
3. I've had luck with drizzling a little bit of cooking oil on to the burrs,letting it soak in a while, then running it, the clumped coffee came loose. It made a terrible mess in the bin, but I ran a couple cups of beans through and it cleaned up the oil.

Good luck~
