Question about DeLonghi DCM485 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Won't brew The bars came on and before I could decalcify the machine stopped working. It is exactly one year and two weeks old. I have tried resetting. Now it shows a clear symbol instead of lines going through it, but it still does not work even though there is power to it and I can stop, start, etc. Nothing happens. Please help. Thank You

Trevi Spidem Espresso Machine that leaks

remove the brew unit and look at the white valve behind it, below that valve there is a small chamber which is probably filled with coffee grounds and water, clean chamber and below chamber is a small discharge hole that leads into the draintray, make sure it is clear.

Spidem Trevi Water Problem/ my machine is leaking water and sort of coffee grounds. I have decalcified it several times, but it continues to leak. It is an office machine is 3 years old and I don no

Easiest way is to open the machine and find the blockage then clear it out and then get on a regular descale cycle. Check the brew unit also to make sure that it is not blocked. You model only has one boiler so if you're getting hot water from the steam wand it is possible that the problem is in the brew unit.

Its not making the coffee its just makes a little then stops

You both may have deeper issues, but it is definitely not too new to be decalcified. It is very much worth a shot. I have a Cusinart coffeemaker and a Cuisinart espresso maker, and both of them needed to be decalcified in the first month (of course, I live in an area with hard water).

Steam from brew head, but no water


  1. If you take the coffee filter and head it in light, can you see a little hole in the middle? if not, try to clean it else you have to replace it.
  2. Can you brew out water without the filter holder in the machine? If not, loosen the screw in the middle on the machine where the filterholder shall be and take of the filter. Clean the filter and put it on the machine again.
Hope this help you

Coffee maker shuts off during brew cycle

I to have been battling this same problem on and off for a couple of years, and have been trying to find out why it thinks it id done brewing. I have had some success but exactly what fixes it I don't know.
I called Cuisinart and they told me to change the water filter in it. This didn't work, but I did see some grounds and even a bean had gotten under the filter. I cleaned that out and it fixed it, that time. If you don't have a filter, shine a light down the water reservoir and make sure you don't see anything.
Other than that I do a bunch of cleaning cycles with, Brew Rite Cleaner, Whink Automatic Drip Coffeemaker Cleaner, and vinegar. Don't mix them, just follow the directions on each. Follow with a bunch of rinse cycles. I still don't know which one does the most to fix the problem. For all I know it could just be all of the rinse cycles.
Just keep trying, there is hope that you won't have to tend to your coffee maker forever.

Won't brew

bring white vinegar to a boil and pour it into the perforated top, the water reservoir and the link between the water reservoir and the brew basket. let sit a few minutes, pour it out and do it again.
put the water reservoir back in, put water and vinegar solution ( half and half) in. Try to start it again. Mine did this last year and this fixed it right away. Try to clean the coffee maker using the vinegar solution once a month to avoid this problem.
