All lights are functioning but coffee is going directly into the dispenser. We tried to clean it but still same issue. Will it need a full repair or can we fix it from home

Try to put grinder (***** on top near cafe beans more to the right) on more rough. Choose less strong cafe and put cafe foam valve (if you have it) off (full left).

If problem persist, open the dispensing mechanism box, take all out, there is water dispensing pipe in the back (unscrew screws), take it out and clean it (the pipe should be hollow 5mm wide, it can take a day in vinegar to dissolve and/or water pressure and tiny *****-er to clean it).

Do the descaling&rinsing.

Try not to play around much as it might burn the pump.

Why is my cafe retro espressione not making espresso? It look like the water is pumping up but not draining into the cup! Thanks

You need to descale it. step 1: run some white vinegar through it. step 2: use a commercial descling product (more effective than vinegar). Step 3: if the water flow is completely blocked by scale you need to un screw the exit filter by tipping the machine upside down. Then, remove the scale that built up under the filter, and clean the filter holes. Reassmeble the device and run a descaler through it.

I remember the salesman told me I would need to clean this inside of the dishwasher, perhaps with vinegar. We do not have a user manual so I need to learn how to do it.


Yes vinegar is about the best thing to use.
How to do it is ,
place a coffee cup upright in the upper rack as is if you were going to drink from it
fill it with about a cup of vinegar..white vinegar is best,but apple cider vinegar works well too
set and run a regular/normal cycle

thats it... pretty simple

Water flow from grohe ladylux kitchen faucet has slowed down with time. What can or should I do to increase water flow?

If it has a removable aerator screen, remove it and clean it out. If it can't be removed, try soaking the entire head in white vinegar for a couple of hours. You should see a big improvement.

Whirlpool Gold dishwasher not cleaning dishes. It runs through the cycles and rinses, but dishes are not completely clean.

I had a similar problem with my last two dishwashers, with food still left on the dishes at the end of the cycle. What a nightmare. The most recent dishwasher is new, now the problem is solved. Here's what the manufacturer told me. Pour white vinegar (approximately 2 cups) into the dishwasher and run through the cycle. Buy some Cascade Complete and only use this type of soap for the dishwasher. Make sure you run a cup or two of the white vinegar through the dishwasher cycle once a week. My dishes are now clean and clear!!

Place a tray filled with white vinegar into the oven. Turn it on to a medium-high heat and let the vinegar "cook off" or reduce to 20% of its original volume.
Yes, you will smell the vinegar and the oven will smell like vinegar- but that's the best way to clean a smelly oven. I prefer the vinegar smell to that of curry, burned meat,etc.

DO NOT REMOVE THE HOT TRY- TURN THE OVEN OFF and wait for the oven to become cold, then remove the tray/pan and remaining vinegar - then clean the oven.

Machine takes a long time for first cup to come out then sometimes only half as much water as used to comes out

mcdevito75 here, sounds like your coffee maker needs cleaning, after 20--30 cups of coffee made it does. Fill the decanter with white vinegar, clean or place new filter in the machine and cycle the white vinegar thru 3 times, on the 3rd time time thru stop the machine for 30 minutes, then resume that cycle. Now clean or replace the filter again and cycle thru regular water 3--4 times the get rid of all the vinegar, machine shouls be fine now.

Now repeat with fresh water to reove all the vinegar from the machine. Your coffee maker should now be good as new.
