Question about DeLonghi EAM3500 Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Espresso doesn't come out of the front spouts. I hear the coffee grind and even the water filtering through, but no espresso. The spouts aren't clogged and mobile drawer isn't jammed. Help!

When I press the brew button in lights up, I hear the pump going but no coffee???

Barring a serious mechanical problem, I'd say check water level, make sure you aren't using a turkish grind, and clean the machine by running white vinegar through it. 9 bar machines can't push thought a turkish grind very well. Calcium from tap water can clog the machine.

Hi. When the 1-cup or 2-cup filter is in, and the machine is set to run, the water comes through the delivery spout in a steady stream for about 2 seconds and then sprays water (espresso) and steam...

i can try and help you get this figured out1st thing i would try is to start a shot without the portafilter in the machine. does water come through the screen, or is there literally steam coming through, or both. i have a feeling your either not putting enough coffee in the portafilter (basket) and/or the grind is not fine enough. it should take about 23-33 seconds to get a total of 1 1/2 oz of espresso. let me know if this helps, brian

I have a FrancisFrancis x5 and when I make coffee, the liquid only comes out of one of the two spouts. How can I get the coffee to flow evenly from both? Thanks!

Sounds like the spout or filter is blocked or partially blocked. Or there is just a bluild up of coffee in the bottom of the handle. Either way you should clean all of these parts. Remove the filter from the handle and poke the spouts. Then soak them both in a solution of espersso cleaner and hot water. Rinse thoroughly and inspect. Repeat or scrub if necessary.

No water is pumping thru the water spout or the coffee spout, the machine is reading fine grounds and press okay for water. i've adjusted grinder dial and pressed water button but nothing happened

I got this machine and there was grinding noise but no water coming from the spout or coffee from the dispenser.

Took the back cover off. The big lump in the middle is the water pump. One of the wire connections was hanging off mine. Pushed the connector back on and everything worked fine.

Great coffee, rubbish construction!

Water not coming out of dispensing area, goes to drip tray instead Water comming out in drip tray instead of regular way

Try this, if the machine has a pregrind door(usually on the top front) then use the button to tell it you are using pre grind coffee, if water comes out the spout this way then the grind on the grinder is too fine, if it goes out the drain then the coffee passage is blocked, remove the brew unit and check/clear tubes, also clean the spouts on the door of the unit.

No coffee comes out from the coffe machine

The grind may be too fine. The Brew unit is plugged and needs service. The spout joining the boiler to the brew unit is broken. The unit may be plugged with scale.
