Question about DeLonghi BAR 14 Espresso Machine

2 Answers

Espresso machine will not make Espresso.

When I turn the machine on with the espresso all ready to go, the water just stays in the machine. Nothing comes out and when I take off the thing with the espresso in it all the water that was supposed to come out just stayed in there and spills everywhere pretty much.

Also, the outlets on the bottom of the portafilter may be plugged. Flip the portafilter over and look into the outlets. With the inner filter removed, you should be able to see light through the outlets. If not, these may be plugged from improper cleaning. Set the head of the portafilter in hot water for a few minutes to soften the plug, then using a soft wooden toothpick, clean out the jam. Once you get water flowing through, run a few empty shots to finish the cleaning and inspect.

Try this remove the portafilter and press the brew button, if water comes out of head, machine is fine but the grind or the tamping(packing pressue) used on the coffee is not right. If you are grinding the coffee just before using it, try a coarser setting. If you pre grind at the store then try tamping the coffee lighter.

On Vienna Deluxe after the beans are ground and ready to drop the espresso shots, nothing comes out and the red light goes on? I shut the unit off for a minute or so, turn it back on and it works ok, but...


Solid red light is a ventilate light.. Try Priming the machine to see if the light goes away.

Something may be in the flow meter. Its the while device between the water tank and the pump of the machine. You would have to open the machine and clean out the flow meter.

Also, if you haven't descaled the machine already, I would start there.

My Keurig B60 just stays flashing "NOT READY". I can turn it off, I can't get the menu... nothing. I unplug it and it comes back on the same way.


Try removing the water reservoir tank, the replacing it. Make sure the reservoir tank is seated properly. There seems to be a problem with this model with the water reservoirs not seating properly and causing the unit to stop working or shut off. Hope that helps! Best of luck...
