SOURCE: milk is not dispensing hot enough from saeco

If you use cold milk, I don't think it has enough heating power to make it hot enough. What I find works best is using long life milk from a carton which is room temperature, or making the milk room temperature warm in the microwave first before pouring into the milk containter

SOURCE: My Tschibo Caffissimo Classic will not let coffee come out of the spout, why?

Clean the port using a small paper clip. Push it up the tube and pop out the material that collected inside.
Always use Distillate or Filtered water.

SOURCE: My z5 is out of

It is likely the push pull solenoid at the upper right of (facing) machine.

My machine was pumping coffee for cappuccino and special cups from the wrong spout (center spout) vs left spout.

I opened up the machine and found this solenoid which is supposed to push a lever that switches the flow of coffee between center and left spouts.

In my machine the solenoid wasn't working. Three potential causes of failure: 1) solenoid is stuck (mechanical issue) 2) solenoid failed or 3) power to the solenoid failed.

In my case it was 1) solenoid was stuck. I used a needle nose pliers to grab the nub of the solenoid push shaft and pull it out. You may need a butter knife to pry it out enough for the pliers to have something to grab. I moved the shaft in and out a few times, put the machine back together and I was back in business.

That's the short version. While I had the machine open I tested resistance across the solenoid using my ohm meter, and current to the solenoid during the left rinse cycle, ruling out both electrical causes. This was fortunate because I couldn't figure out how to remove the solenoid.

Good luck!

Cannot get steam to come out of my delonghi prima donna XS coffee machine

Could not find why but maybe if you go back over the scaling procedure and steam procedure there might be something you missed.
Please note! If "Energy saving" is active, you may have to wait a few seconds before hot water and steam are delivered.
Steam delivery 1. Make sure the hot water spout is attached correctly (fig. 7). 2. Fill a container with the liquid to be heated/frothed and immerse the spout/cappuccino maker (D5) in the liquid. 3. Press the steam ( ) button. After a few seconds, the steam to heat the liquid comes out of the cappuccino maker and "STEAM" is displayed. 4. When the required temperature is obtained, interrupt steam delivery by pressing the steam ( ) button again. (You should not discharge steam for more than 3 minutes at a time).

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.
