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: Delonghi EC 155 general help

You don't have to wait 15 mins. just a few minutes, then run some hot water to warm up the portafilter and dry it up, fill it up with coffee and when you get the gree light again, make your espresso . You will have to have a good fine coffee and make sure to pack the coffee really good and don't leave any around the edges , so could make a good seal. If you have steam coming out of the machine , is maybe to hot and is ready to brew . Cool down the machine after use, run water through it and let the steam out of the nozzle.

SOURCE: DeLonghi Magnifica always asks "Insert Infuser Assembly"

on my machine, the two screws that attach the infuser receptacle to the insides of the machine came loose. You can see those two stainless hex socket screws when you remove the infuser by grabbing its two red tabs and pulling it out. Just use a hex shaft
screwdriver (size 3mm or thereabout) to tighten them.

SOURCE: My Delinghi eam3500 has come up with general

The general alarm message after the machine taking too long to heat up -in deed shows a problem to reach the correct temperature.
So there are a number of possible causes:
the 2 heaters (water/steam) the NTCs(temperature control sensors)
the tempearature overheat-fuses. In my case it was the (water-)heater itself. Be sure to unplug the machine from power supply befor opening!!!
First test then-do the heaters warm up??.....carefull if they do-they are hot!!! If one of them doesn´t warm up- Unplug again!...and then measure the resistance of this heater-If the heater is ok,it should show around 50-58 ohms. If it shows indefinite resistance the heater is broken and you have to exchange it.
In case of both the heaters showing the~50ohms you will have to check the thermal resistors/fuse/NTC.
For me the two forums below wer of great help for me...of course they are in german...but didn´t you wish to learn a foreuage anyway???
Good luck and best regards
Wolfgang

Check NTC sensor and heating element terminals. You should get resistance with multimeter or ohmmeter. NTC sensor should change resistance when you heat it up with lighter, finger or whatever heat source you have near by.

Screen Alert: General Alarm What does this mean


General alarm means the machine has detected a serious fault. There is a section in the instruction manual that may help. If not, read on.

Persistent "General Alarm"

This means many things. If the transmission is not stuck, check the main boiler has not burnt out (open circuit). This happens when the thermoblock labyrinth runs dry and overheats, a common problem caused by leaks, limescale, milk blockages or water filter contamination. Replacing the boiler is the only fix, a difficult and expensive process, experienced fixers (or nothing to lose) only.

Transmission
If the transmission is getting stuck there may be obstructions, the lead screw may be worn or the limit switches could be faulty. If cleaning and grease on the screw/bearings don't help then replacement is a tricky job only for confident hands. Approach with caution.

    You need to reset it. Unplug machine, remove waste container and tray. Put the waste container back in without the tray and slide a knife under the waste container, close door. Plug in. It should reset. Turn off, replace tray and waste container and turn unit back on.

    Easier, call their 800 number and they'll walk you thru it.
