Question about DeLonghi ECAM 23.450 S Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker
I accidently threw coffee beans in the gorunds coffee slot, and now it does not do anything, i tried vaccuming the part where the brew unit is, and when i try making a coffee it says less coffee. It seems all the coffee is just going to the tray and not coming through to the cup. Someone told me to remove the brew unit, but that seems jammed in there. Please assist

SOURCE: Brewing System stuck
Hi, I think this is something I encountered once. Try this:
1. Shut the service door
2. unplug the machine, wait for any of the shut down noises to stop
3. plug the machine back in, wait for any noises to stop
4. check to see if everything is back in order
The most important thing is to keep the service door shut, and all the parts, ground basket, drip tray etc. in place. The mechanical will only operate with these things in place.
Hope this helps.

These machines do need to be lubricated every so often. First, buy some food safe lubricant, e.g. here. Then, turn the machine off, open the front door, and remove the infuser. There is a holder connected to the machine by two hex screws. You may remove this (or even just leave it on). Now attach a long tube to the lubricant (should come with the can) and spray lubricant on both sides of the vertical screw that moves the infuser up and down. Give it a few good sprays on both sides of the screw, up and down, and that should solve your problem.

SOURCE: wont heat or brew!!
Make sure the coffee maker is unplugged there's 120 lethal volts inside when plugged in!
This unit has a replacable thermal fuse. It's a "Microtemp" Thermal Cutoff Fuse G4A00. You can buy five on eBay for $2.70. There are two on this unit and they are in the base concealed inside a 3" white mesh that runs alongside the heater. You will need a security fladebladed screwdriver that you can make by filing a notch in the center of a regular screwdriver.

SOURCE: water not pumping
Typically this is caused by the heating/water unit inside the machine drying out. Not being totally familiar with your machine let me offer this suggestion: if you have a "hot water" function that allows you to run hot water out of the machine use it to allow water to get back into the heating unit. Once water flows through without interruption you should be able to brew coffee again. I know this is the case with Jura machines and the problem you described is identical to what happens with those machines when the internal heated water tank runs dry.

I had this problem last night. The infuser was stuck down too low and the tray wouldn't slide in. I got the solution from FIXYA, and it worked for me.
First make sure machine is off at power, then put just the coffee grounds collector and not the whole tray back into place, gently close the door, and then turn the machine back on. At first I couldn't close the door, but I fgured that the grounds collector was a bit too low, so just put something in there to hold it up while I shut the door. Turn the machine back on at power and HEY PRESTO, it all started up again, and then the infuser moved back into correct position.
Make sure you have a cup handy just incase water starts to rinse out.
Hope this helps
