Dump the water out of it and put in a mixture of 71% white vinegar-25% water. Let it soak for at least one hour. This will soften any deposits in the system. Flush it with plain water 2 or 3 times, to remove the vinegar taste. This is totally harmless and will not harm you if it isn't all rinsed out, like the caustic cleaners will. This is the method we used in out factory service appliance center. It works with steam irons also.

Delonghi EC270 won't work.


Bad power cord or a Shorted heater in the coffee pot. Try swapping the cord, if you can't or still trips the breaker, it is time for a new coffee maker.

How do I remove the cover of a delonghi ec270


Prise the back cover off with a flat head screw driver. Sides first, then ease top and bottom off. Remove two push in caps by gently squeezing out with a plier, align the groove to the same direction as plier. Locate two screws holding cover, unscrew, and off it comes.

Have a delonghi Prima Donna 6700 coffee machine and get this message


Hi there coffee person.
Have you tried disconnecting the machine from the power supply. As well as that check if there are enough coffee beans in the bean in the compartment and enough fresh water in the water tank. Not only this but is the compartment with the coffee "tablets" - full or empty. Fill or empty accordingly. Connect to power again, if the machine does not work the only advice have from here is "to clean the machine" as described in the manual or as you are used to.
Good luck

I have just bought a delonghi ec220cd coffee maker - a replacement for the delonghi ec270 which started to leak badly. However, the milk doesn't seem to want to froth - just wet and may as well just pour...


Try removing the plastic steaming sleeve and just use the stainless pipe. Keep the pipe just below the surface to make the ffroth, then go lower to heat the milk to a max of 165F.

Have a delonghi dc78tc coffee maker and have power but it will not brew any suggestions


Try replacing the element. What is happening is is that the element is not getting hot enough to pull any water from the tank and heat it and send it up through the shower head to brew the coffee. Sometimes it can be a thermostat but more than likely it is a heating element.

Coffee not coming out


Machine is still under warranty. Go to your instruction manual and call Delonghi about this problem. They will replace unit for shipping charges only. Tell them problem you are having, sometimes they tell you how to solve problem.
