How to decalcify Delonghi Rialto 4500

Need to decalcify my machine, I have not done so since I brought it many yrs already. I used filtered water but figure it may need to be cleaned out. Coffee not tasting as it should. Also what's the best number to put on grinner for whole beans? I can't seem to get it right, making it too strong, bitter tasting. Thanks

SOURCE: What if my coffee tastes bad?

Did you run the vinegar through it three times, then rinse it three times? You might try changing the filter and filter basket.

SOURCE: coffee machine blocked

it could be grind stuck in the (yes the, as in the only) hole in the filter cup. remove the filter cup from the cup holder (the thing with the black handle) and use the tiny pin in the little brown tool to push out whatever is in there. you may have used to fine a grind or stuffed the filter cup too much. careful, that is how you break the plastic filter holder ring.

for calcifying, i just use plain white vinegar. i put it in straight into the clear water holder, about 3/4 cup, then i run it throuhg a bit, let it sit 5 min, run it through a bit, let it sit 30 min to an hour. depending on the day, i repeat a few times, rinse with clean water. i do this about every 2 months.

Had the Rialto 4500 for over a year. All of a sudden the milk is not coming out properly, mostly just steam. I've cleaned the tube and container top many times ! What else can it be ?


Me too! They ordered me a new milk pitcher from Italy. Didn't work. They told me to run it through some tests using water in pitcher. Didn't work. They then told me to send it in to a Delonghi repair shop. They just told me that it was all "clogged up" and also needed a new generator. The tow are linked together. We descaled fairly regularly. Total tab: $380! OUch! Have not told them to go ahead. seaching for cheaper solutions. Let me know if you hear of any. wosbrink@me.com.
