Hi guys, This issue has been winding me up for ages. I've had the machine serviced by Kenwood Delonghi and after about 8 months the problem reoccurs. I think I've sorted it now though.
If you remove the infuser and push on the metal disc it will go down in to the camber / Cylinder, this can be quite hard at first but this is why the problem occurs, the slide doesn't' go up and down the camber/cylinder.

What I do now is soak the whole infuser in soapy water for 10 minutes and then move the infuser up and down in the cylinder (this can be a little hard at first but it frees up as it gets clean) then clean and dry it all off. Then if you use a bit of lubricant, you can buy this but I just used frylite and then moved the piston in the cylinder up and down to free it up. You will see all of the coffee build up start to come out. Keep cleaning and moving it under the water and it cleans it out properly. Using the frylite acts as a food safe lubricant to facilitate this movement. Keep it moving until it moves up and down freely. Once you are confident that the piston can move up and down freely, reinstall and get the machine turned back on and hey presto. Nice coffee, no mess inside the machine and more importantly, no grounds in the bottom of your coffee 8-)

SOURCE: Coffee machine Delonghi Magnifica grinding function not working

There are two reasons for this usually. Either the grinder is jammed or the grinding wheel or wheels have broken. Your machine needs to go to a repair shop to be looked at.

SOURCE: The machine makes a very loud noise when grinding

Even a properly operating super automatic DeLonghi espresso machine makes enough coffee grinder noise to scare your pets and wake you next door neighbors. It's LOUD, no doubt about it. Only if your grinder makes more noise than that do you have a problem.

SOURCE: Instead of depositing nice rounds discs of coffe

I had the same problem about a month ago and contacted customer services because its still in warranty - they suggested it may be the diffuser and sent a new one - which solved the problem. The attached invoice showed it as costing GBP 15.03 (although it was free under warranty).

SOURCE: Grinder runs with NO beans inside

Fill beans before they run out!
If you hear the grinder running empty, press the same button you pressed to start making coffe to cancel the current cup -or, if some beans were ground, stop the water a bit earlier to make a shorter coffe using the same method (press the button you pressed to start the cup). The auto-detect of beans missing is a very minor and largely useless feature.

The problem is when I use pre ground coffee beans. The water doesn't run through. It comes over the top and the grounds get in the coffee. I buy them that way because they mark them down half price. I


Hi,

There are whole coffee beans, and there are ground coffee beans, but there is no such thing as "pre-ground" coffee beans because you wouldn't want the beans to be ground AFTER making coffee.

If you have a problem using "pre-ground" beans, then STOP using pre-ground beans and grind them yourself.

I hope this helps.

Have a delonghi Prima Donna 6700 coffee machine and get this message


Hi there coffee person.
Have you tried disconnecting the machine from the power supply. As well as that check if there are enough coffee beans in the bean in the compartment and enough fresh water in the water tank. Not only this but is the compartment with the coffee "tablets" - full or empty. Fill or empty accordingly. Connect to power again, if the machine does not work the only advice have from here is "to clean the machine" as described in the manual or as you are used to.
Good luck

Fill beans


the coffee beans are not entering in the grinder disks and since they rotate without coffee the machine understands that their is no beans. You need to clean the grinder disk and grinding coffee funel to bee sure their nothing blocking the coffee movements. Use a vaccum cleaner and try to clean everything in grinder and grinder exits. Try also the machine by regulating thegriding to more gross coffee and when it will start grinding normal then you can udjust step by step back to grinding position you have at the begeining.

Hello. I have a saeco vienna superautomatic


This happens due to condensation caused by steam developed at the end of the grinding cycle. Make sure that the grinding chamber is completely cleaned and dried before using the grinder.

  1. Turn the whole bean chamber to the right until it can be lifted off the base. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel. NOTE: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance.
  2. Clean interior recesses with a soft brush (not provided).
  3. Wash the whole bean chamber and lid and the ground coffee chamber and lid in mild detergent and water. These items are only dishwasher safe on the top rack of your dishwasher. Wipe exterior with a damp cloth. Do not immerse mill in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  4. After completely drying, replace whole bean chamber. Important: when replacing whole bean chamber, screw on completely before setting grinding rate. Turn chamber clockwise (as viewed from top), until it will not turn. Fill with whole coffee beans for grinding and replace lid.
  5. Replace ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure it snaps securely into place.

Gaggia Titanium dumps ground coffe inside unit


Hi
You have 2 knobs in the bean hopper. The small one is set to the most positive. Turn it back 1 click from the plus and that should take care of your problem. When you have a clean brew unit it will make the first coffee but a little coffee is left in the brew unit and when it tries to make the second coffee a full charge and the little that was left cause an over charge, and dumps the coffee without making anything.
