Question about DeLonghi Caffe Parma Espresso Machine
My coffee maker works fine and the steamer for milk works fine but the expresso maker works intermittantly. We have tried cleaning with vinegar but it still isn't working properly.

Go to www.delonghi.com and check to see if there is a manual for your machine. You can download the .PDF file and read it on your computer OR print it out and read it at your leisure.

I found the manual for the Salton EX8 at kitchen.manualsonline.com Try there first and then I found another site with a customer service number 1-800-233-9054. It is a 9 page download but if you have Adobe it works fine.

SOURCE: I have a Delonghi Magnifica
I purchased a unit second hand for my wife's birthday today. It's only 4 months old, got it home, tested it, same problem... No froth!
I've read all the posts here and all were very helpful troubleshooting guides however they did not solve the issue.
Understanding how the frothing mechanism functions is half the battle in figuring out the solution. It's a simple vacuum type system. No doubt you've read about checking the orings. This is definately the first thing to check however if this is not the reason then consider the following.
The larger of the white tubes that has the red and black oring inserts deep into its port on the tap. Why? It pushes steam past the milk pipe directly into the chrome frothing tube which causes a vacuum essentially drawing milk up it's hose creating the froth. What you can't see without further investigation is that on the underside of the tube centered between the red and black orings is a small hole. This hole is responsible for drawing the milk upwards. If this is blocked, and it probably is then no milk and no froth. Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath.
So in conclusion. Any air leak between the red and black orings will prevent the vacuum required to draw milk up the tube and alternatively any blockage of the milk channel will also obviously prevent the flow into the frothing mechanism. Hope this helps.
