Question about DeLonghi Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

I need one black rubber gasket for the machine and another smaller gasket that fits into the filter crema. When I put the coffee in the filter and damp it down then insert it into the machine sometimes there is a squirt of coffee coming from between the filter and the machine and the coffee dribbles out - sometimes it flows out but not often. The model is EC430E

Keurig leaking from bottom


Check the Upper Rubber Gasket (fits around the top puncture pin). If it missing you will have leakage because here's no seal to protect leakage. You can buy it online or call Keurig Customer Service (if you still have warranty)
OR:
Upper Rubber Gasket not making a seal with the K-Cup or Reusable Filter and the water and/or coffee grounds leak out. To fix it simply move Upper Rubber Gasket 1/4" down. This should close the gap between K-Cup and upper needle.

Coffee squirts/sprays out of the machine rather than gently flowing or dripping into the cup. The machine is brand new.


Fit the small black Crema enhancer between the filter basket and portafilter, or buy a non pressurised filter basket - lots of holes...

My one week old baby gaggia espresso machine is spraying coffee all over my kitchen. Should i take it straight back or am i doing something wrong?


Check the filter basket, if it only has one small hole, it's a pressurised filter and needs the small black Crema Enhancer fitted into the portafilter before fitting the filter basket.

Or buy a spare double filter basket which has lots of holes and does not need the Crema doo-da

I get espresso grinds up on the machine above the filter basket after I make espresso.


Hi
Sorry to say but that is pretty normal. One trick we did is after making the espresso for the day, we emptied the portafilter basket of grounds, then put the portafilter back in the machine and ran the pump. Once we had water coming from the portafilter, we loosened the portafilter back and forth a couple times and this would clean the gasket and brew head. The gasket is very important and a dirty gasket can lead to trouble down the road.

I can't get the water to come through the coffee holder. It builds up pressure but won't shoot the coffee out. The water comes out if I take the holder off , but not when it is in place. Do I need a new...


Remove the brew head. Pry out the metal coffee filter, then pry out the rubber gasket. There is a small black plastic insert that is likely gunked up with coffee buildup. Clean the parts well, reassemble, and then try again.
If you are a good "tamper", you can leave out the rubber gasket and plastic insert entirely, and just go with the the filter. It takes a bit of practice, but you will get equally good crema if you match the grind to your tamp pressure.

I have a solis crema sl-70 whose portafilter leaks and actually flies off if I don't hold it in place as I pull a shot. Is this is small repair problem, or should I replace my machine?


You may just need a new grouphead gasket. This is a rubber ring that fits in the space between the outside of the grouphead and the interior area that houses the dispersion screen. If it's worn or dried out, the pf may not be sealing properly (which would cause the leaking and instability)
The portafilter (pf) handle should line up with a pre-printed indicator line on the group head when it's "locked" in. If you're looking at the machine straight on, and the far side is "12" on a clock face, the handle should be at 6 or 5 o' clock. The pf should "ease" in to the grouphead, not stop with a hard feeling.
The problem might be with the portafilter "ears", or the metal tines that wedge into the grouphead. If they're excessively worn, the pf might not be secured snugly enough to make a seal. A new pf will solve this.
So, first, try a new gasket. Then a new portafilter. Then a new machine :)

No crema on short black


Make sure the coffee is a fine grade...place holder in machine for 6 mins before filling with coffee and ensure the filter holes are clear and dry.

Inconsistent quality of crema and coffee


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.
