DeLonghi EC701 Pump out

I am located in SW Denver Colorado and have a DeLonghi EC701 that appears to have a pump not work.The pump seems to just very, very slowly drip espresso...but the steamer works just fine.

I contacted Delonghi customer service but they were NO help at all...not under warranty. There is a service location listed about an hour from here, but they are not responsive.

Any ideas? I really like this machine, but am thinking I have to buy new unless I can get this fixed.

I had the same issue. Scale build up in the port that routes water to the boiler outlet for the coffee filter basket. Frother tube was fine.

I used CLR to open it back up. Used 1 part to 4 of water and ran a whole reserviour through the unit. At first, it only dripped and then finally it blew open when the CLR dissolved the scale.

Make sure to run lots of clean water through the unit after so that you don't end up drinking acid with your next cup. I ran about a gallon through to rinse it out.

I have a delonghi EC701 machine. It was over heating and after making a cup I left the machine on. a few minutes later it blew the ring fuse and now it will not heat up the water. The machine seems o get...

First, I'm not a delonghi technician. But I've worked on similar units.
* Table top brewers usually have water reservoirs that require monitoring and refilled when they get low (especially after brewing)
* It's possible the water level sensor is stuck (in the water reservoir) which tells the machine that it still has water and keeps heating the tank(s). Clean tank as described in your manual. You will still need servicing to check and replace fuse(s).
* There is usually two tanks/heaters in this type of table top machine (larger pro models use one large tank) The thermal limit fuse on one or both are probably blown. Call vendor for service.
* Did you change water source? Since this is a table top machine in which you fill the water tank. Try to use filtered (bottled ok) water. Do Not use Distilled or 100% pure water as this type of water will eat out the metals from your machine! Some places use a water softener as it tends to be better for the machine long term (years).
* Still got problems? Check with vendor or MFR for service or replacement. Most machines of this type do not have serviceable parts or adjustments.

Fuel pump

The performance of an electric fuel pump can be tested several ways. The easiest and most effective of which is to test fuel pressure and volume at the vehicles fuel pressure test port. Normally located on the fuel injection rail. A more direct method would be breaking the fuel line somewhere between the pump and the fuel filter and placing your gage there for a test.

DeLonghi EC701

Could be scale build up. Do you have well water? You should run a descaler or white vinegar through the unit often to keep the boiler outlets clean.

Unless you are saying that the pump just doesn't run, ie, no noise, vibration, etc. Then, thanks for the warning that their pumps are bad.

No water ever makes it through the pump

I just got mine working again. There was scale in the outlet port for the coffee basket.
Try cleaning by running through a solution of CLR and water (1 to 4 parts) and keep running until the blockage dissolves and flow is restored. Then run another solution again just to clean it for good.

MAKE SURE TO RINSE OUT THE RESERVIOUR VERY WELL. Should run clear without foam after about a gallon of clean water.
