Machine won't turn on.

After about 2 years of great expresso, today the machine will not turn on. Press button, nothing happens. Tried different outlets, no luck. Willing to pry the machine apart if there is any chance of fixing it myself. Anyone out there know what's going on with this machine or how to fix it? Thanks! K

Re: Machine won't turn on.

There is a post with a solution for this with the title: "Machine won't turn on - no power! " - fixmebob has a good solution, but you'll need to be a little tech savvy to perform it yourself. I was able to take the machine apart, but didn't know how to replace a diode. I ended up sending mine in for repair, which ended up being about $55 because I had to ship the machine. But good news is that I'm back up and running. Was a little nervous about shipping the machine, but it worked out fine. If you decide to take your machine to a service center, here's a link to the list on the Breville site:

How to get less water dispensed. My expresso dispenses 100ml. Too much for an expresso. Help.

On a lot of machines if you press and hold the button while it dispenses and release the button only when you have the desired amount it will retain that amount for the next button press of that particular button.

My Coffee machine Delonghi doing expresso without foam today. Before doing good expresso with foam. help please.

Espresso should have crema not foam, foam is air added to coffee, like Starbucks does. Issue lays in the grinder and coffee quality. Recommend using Italian espresso bean like Miscela d Oro

My expresso machine won't steam. Just suddenly stopped. Have tried running vinegar through system, but still won't run through steamer.

Hi, I dont know which brand machine you have, but I should be able to work out what is wrong. If your machine has a press button or turn knob steam tap, then it could be the solenoid which opens the steam flow. The solenoid itself maybe stuck or the coil maybe faulty. You just need to work back from the steam arm to work out which solenoid it is. It should make a clicking sound when activated. Commercial machine solenoids canbe disassembled and cleaned. If its a domestic machine, then just replace the solenoid. Also, some machines have a micro switch that activates the steam valve. If its faulty, then replace it.
If its a domestic machine you have, then another thing that maybe at fault, and that is the thermoblock (small boiler). If it doesn't heat up then no steam canbe made. The thermoblock has an element inside, and they can not be replaced. You have to replace the whole thermoblock. It can be easily checked with a multi meter to see if the circuit is broken. On some thermoblocks, is a thermostat or overload sensor. It is also easily checked with a meter.
So lets break it down a) solenid
b) micro switch
c) Thermoblock
d) thermostat/ thermol overload
Hope this has help you. Id be looking towards the thermoblock. Dazza

It says 'ventilate' and nothing works. I have tried to turn it off and back on but it doesn't work.

Like the Royal Pro machine and Royal Coffee, there is a water button on the Comfort that you need to press to run water. If when you press it and nothing happens you have a stuck solenoid, probably from scale build up. See what happens when you push the button with the drop of water or it may have many drops depending.

Machine won't prime

Try lifting the water tank, then setting it back in place, and then priming the machine.

Display says to press cleaning button. Which one is it?

Top 2nd row left. The small button with the filled cup icon. It's for short wash (2 mins) and full wash cycle (after opening the pill drop chute) which takes 8 mins to complete. Instructions in your operator's manual.

Nuova simonelli mac cup red light

It sounds like the thermostat on the boiler nest to the element tripped. Fill machine with water until you can see the level about half way, then open the right side of the espresso machine, you might be able to get to thermostat from the top of machine (make sure it is unplugged) then press the red pin on the boiler between the 2 wires, that should reset the thermostat, if it does not then it will need to be replaced. As for the water on the top of the group head, is there any way you can post a pic of the top, because simonelli made a few different head and I want to give you the correct advise.
