Open Question

Only drips come out when the rinsing function is on

I ran the descaler liquid through twice, and rinsing function produces only drips. Then I soaked the diffuser. No change. Then I soaked the diffuser in descaler - no change. When the machine turns on and goes through a rinse cycle and when it makes coffee , hardly any coffee is produced because the water is not coming out. the motor that does the rinse function has the same sound and does not seem to be strainging and the tubes in the back are not leaking. What is causing the water to not come out?

SOURCE: The coffee grinds, and tamps, however no water

I had this same problem and fixed it according to a solution posted here by joebauer and it worked perfectly. He explains it better, but basically there is a brass part in the back of the machine (behind the U-shaped heating element) that gets stuck in the open position so that no water can get through. You have to remove it and give it a good whack on a hard surface. You know if it is unstuck by trying to blow air through the tube and it is not able to pass through. Make sure you unplug your machine before taking it apart.

SOURCE: I have the EAM3200 coffee maker and it seems to be

I have the same issue. I have tried replacing the O-rings in the water heating element and the steamer, and it still does this. For a temporary fix, try running the steamer for about 30 seconds, or until it is running "full steam", and immediately make your coffee. This has worked for my machine for the last 4 months. It is used about 5-10 times a day at my work, and this still is working. I believe the issues is it is losing pressure somewhere, and the water cannot travel through the infuser. I have taken apart my machine more than 10 times, and I still cannot find out where the pressure loss is. I know this is a temporary fix, but it will work until something more permanent can be done. Hope this helps!

How do you descale

Can't drip even after descaling


If you just used the liquid commercial type descaling solution, Unplug it and look underneath the arm where the hot water comes out onto the coffee grounds. Take a toothpick or even a pin and make sure all those teeny holes are not plugged up with hard water and other debris. If this doesn't work, maybe the pump is bad?

How do I descale my Delonghi Perfecta? Can't find my manual!!!!


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!

The machine is on and says decalcify/ready to use. It does not respond to pushing any of the buttons. It does produce steam if you turn the right knob, but nothing else works. How do I get it to respond?


Have you had the same message for a while, but were able to make coffee? When was the last time you decalcified the machine? Your Syncrony probably needs to be decalcified. But do not use the descalers you usually find in the grocery stores, which are for drip coffee makers. Durgol is one of the best ones and the advantage is that it comes as a liquid (on the powder descalers you have to make sure they dissolve completely before you use them and that you measure the correct amount of water). You can find it online or the only store I could find that carries it is Bed, Bath and Beyond. Turn the machine off and let it cool off. When you are ready, take the water tank off and add the decalcifying solution mixed according to the instructions on the package. If you are using a powder, mix it in a different container. And never pour the solution in the tank while this is on the machine (also, make sure the coffee beans container has the cover on - you don't want any liquid making it into the grinder, as it will damage it). Put the water tank with the descaling solution back and turn the machine on. You will then have to press and hold the button that looks like the number 8 on the side (or the infinity symbol in math) and the machine will start the descaling process. Follow the instructions on the display. Put a large container under the steam wand and turn the knob (the same knob you turn for steam and hot water). Be sure to watch for when descaling is done (you will have a message on the display indicating that). Close the knob, rinse the water tank well, fill it with fresh water and put it back on the machine, which will now need to be rinsed. Place an empty container under the steam wand and push the same (8 on the side) button once, turn the knob. The machine will start the rinsing process. You might have to refill the water tank once or twice before it is finished. Once rinsing is done, your machine will be ready for use or it will ask you to ventilate. To do that, fill the water tank with fresh water, place an empty container under the steam wand, push the hot water button and turn the knob. Let the machine circulate water through. Once the ventilate message is gone you're done.

Cleaning the Machine
- Never wash your espresso machine accessories in the dishwasher.


After use, the water container must be emptied.

• Drip tray
This must be emptied after using the appliance by taking off the grid See figure (19)below. If several espressos are being prepared one after the other, the drip tray should be emptied from time to time (about once every 7 - 8 espressos). The presence of water is normal and does not signify a leak. If necessary, clean the drip tray and its grid with water and a little non-abrasive washing-up liquid, rinse and dry. When reassembling the machine, ensure that the plastic lining is in the right place See figure (20) below.


• The brewing head, the filter basket and the filter holder


These must be cleaned after each use. All you need to do is wipe a damp cloth over the brewing head of your appliance and to wash the other accessories in water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry. If the brewing head is heavily clogged up, unscrew the grid using a coin, clean it and refit it, pressing down firmly See figure (21)below.
When your espresso machine is not being used, do not leave the filter holder in the appliance to prevent wear on the gasket.


• The cup warming plate: remove this to clean it with water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry.


• The cappuccino accessory


For more thorough cleaning the cappuccino accessory can be dismantled from the appliance.


Descaling

Descalling (SIC) is necessary to keep your espresso machine running efficiently.

As a result descaling of your espresso machine should be done fairly frequently
with citric or tartaric acid.

• Use caution when descaling your espresso machine as the acid substance within the descaling powder may damage countertops or any other surface it comes in contact with.

However, we would advise you to use the reference solution as W F054 that is available from Krups. Descaling depends on the hardness of the water, but also on the frequency of use.


To descale, follow the following method:


• Unscrew the grid from the brewing head of the appliance and clean it See figure (21)below.
• Dissolve a packet of KRUPS descaling solution in 17 oz1510 ml of lukewarm water and pour the whole batch into the empty water container.
• Place a container under the brewing head. Run through about 1/3 of the liquid immediately, setting the selector to the position See figure (9)below.
• Stop the appliance, leaving the position See figure (9)below engaged and wait for 10 - 15 minutes to allow the descaler to take effect.
• Next, start the machine again and allow the rest of the liquid to run through.
• Then rinse with two water containers of fresh water and replace the grid on the head of the appliance (see section on “Cleaning the machine”).


The warranty does not include espresso machines that do not function, or do not function properly, because descaling has not been carried out.

How do I descale a Thermos?


For excessive staining use of household stain or scale remover is recommended. To remove difficult stains fill your flask with hot water, add one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and secure cap. Soaking overnight produces excellent results. Always rinse before re-use.

my hubby used it as he uses his thermos daily... so goodluck!
