Question about DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 Fully Automatic Bean to Cup Coffee Maker

Open Question

Why doesn't any water come through my 4 yr old ESAM 5500B to make the coffee.

There are no error messages, De'Longhi said to run 10 cycles of water thru it but it still only trickles a bit of water out.

i came across this problem while i was trying to configure the machine to dispense more coffee. you have to re-calibrate the amount of coffee or milk it - consult the manual.

I am not sure of that particular model but most do not store milk... You use the steam generator to steam through the milk, held in a separate container. Since you are new at this, get into the habit of cleaning it regularly as without cleaning everything can clog. When you buy coffee start out with a "dark roast" and build your way to an espresso blend, usually the darker the coffee the oilier the bean and hence cleaning gets more important. If you grind the coffee beans yourself use the finest grind available. And enjoy the coffee!

Yes it is possible, but here is what you have to do first, try a different outlet, that is not on same circuit , another part of house, even garage. If it still trips breaker, then more than likely it's a machine problem that is causing this. If it doesn't trip, then you can put it back where it was, but then have to maybe move other items on that circuit else where if your fond on that spot for the machine. Espresso machine have a huge surge electric demand when on heat mode. Like all kitchens they have several out let's on same circuit , if you still want it in same area, then have to move other stuff to other outlets that don't share circuit. And no you don't want to up circuit breaker to larger breaker as wires might not be rated to handle larger breaker. Let me know if my idea works, thanks mike from fixya

SOURCE: Every time I turn on my de'longhi magnifica coffee

Have to up the breaker at panel that controls that line of outlet circuits, but sometimes can not do this as wires in walls that control those outlets are on same circuit and rated at a curtain size breaker. Best and safest way to solve this is plug machine on different circuit that maybe not so many other items are sharing, like if your fridge or microwave is on that same circuit (breaker) it most likely will always trip. Let me know results if this solved problem, thanks Mr Bean Man

My keurig says I need to descale.How?


Descaling depends the size of the reservoir. I see the B60 but not the B66 at the Keurig site. The two units are apparently the same from searching the support side of the Keurig site: http://www.keurig.com .

For the Mini coffee makers, you use 20 oz of vinegar (2 10 oz cycles). For the larger Keurig units, it takes 48 oz of vinegar.

In either case, fill the reservoir with vinegar and put a large ceramic (12 oz mug for the mini unit) mug on the drip tray. Do not add a K-cup. For the B60 (and probably the B66), press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. Repeat the brew process until Add Water is indicated. Discard the vinegar each time. Then wait 4 hours with the unit on. Discard the remaining vinegar and rinse the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with 48 oz of water and brew several cups without a K-cup until the "Add water" message appears. Discard the water in the mug each time. Repeat the vinegar cleaning if De-scale still appears in the LCD. Run more water without the K-cup if you notice a remaining taste in the coffee after the rinse procedure.

For the mini, fill the reservoir with 10 oz of water, lift the Brewer handle and lower it after 5 seconds with no K-cup in the unit. Press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. After the first cycle, pour the other 10 oz of vinegar into the Cold Water Reservoir. Lift the handle and lower it after 5 seconds. Press the Brew button and wait until the light becomes steady. When vinegar starts to be dispensed, power off the unit. Wait 30 minutes. Then power on the unit and lift and lower the handle again. Then discard the vinegar after the cycle. Next run 4 rinse brew cycles with 10 oz of water each time. Discard the water each time. The unit should be ready to brew with a K-cup after the 4 rinse cycles.

I hope this helps.

My Keurig is not drawing water from the reservoir and it flashes "de-scale" on the screen. I don't see a way to disassemble the machine to descale it.
