Wife turned on machine with low water. Lights are on but does not heat up. Reset button does not


There is a thermostat reset switch that is accessible through a hole in the underside black plastic base. You can use a screwdriver to poke through the hole and depress a cylindrical push button switch. Please unplug machine and remove parts that fall off before tipping it over.

My capresso coffeeTeamGS maker will grind the coffee but will not brew it????


Hi. Your brew unit is by passing the water that is supose to brew. You'll have to clean the brew unit. Jura brewunits are not easly removeable, + you can't buy parts unless your a authorised repairer. Try doing a manual descale cycle. You need to add descale solution to the watertank and operate the hot water and steam functions, which allows the solution to enter the system. Open these functions until water and steam are pumping through, then switch them off and let it sit for a few minutes, then repeat the above 5 or 6 times. This allows the solution to break up any build up. OK, now you have manualy descaled the steam and hot water circuits. Now allow the machine to try and make coffees." we are only trying to clean the machine, so dont drink the coffee." Try 5 or 6 times to see if this is starting to brew better. WE DO NOT LEAVE THE DESCALE SOLUTION IN THE MACHINE. We need to flush the system with fresh water as per above. Descale is corrosive, so we need to get it all out. I hope this has worked for you, other wise you'll have to take it to an authorised repairer. Dazza REPAIRER

Replacing orings on glass level indicator


Not hard to do. Unplug and drain the water. unscrew the frothing wand and tip the machine gently over a sink to drain the water in the system. Then using a box wrench (don't use an adjustable wrench or poorly fitting tool) remove the water reservoir. THen you can unscrew the pressure gauge easily. At that point, the glass is exposed. Gently twist until it's free and pull the glass up and out. When you are replacing the white Orings, a small bit of olive oil on the inside will help you insert the glass back into the orings. Then replace all the components.

I need to decalcify my delonghi 4500


Descaling is another word for decalcification - I would consult the user manual for your exact model, because these directions are actually for the EAM3400, so there might be minor variations:
When the appliance displays the message:
DESCALE
You should perform the descale cycle.
Proceed as follows:
• make sure the appliance is ready.
• press the button (the light over the button comes on) then press the button repeatedly until
the appliance displays:
DESCALE NO
• Press and the appliance displays the message:
DESCALE YES
• Press the button to start the descale program.
• Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (4.2 fl. oz.) of DURGOL descaler plus 34 oz. of
water. For subsequent descaling operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorized technical
service centers.
Note: Make sure splashes of descaler do not fall onto surfaces sensitive to acid such as marble, limestone
and glaze.
• Place a plastic or glass container with a minimum capacity of 50 oz under the hot water spout (Fig. 3);
• Turn the steam knob half a turn counterclockwise (fig.3). The descaling solution will run out of the cappuccino
frother and start to fill the container underneath.
• The descale program automatically performs a series of run offs and pauses to remove lime scale deposits
from inside the coffee maker.
• After about 30 minutes, the appliance displays:
DESCALING COMPLETED TURN KNOB
• Turn the steam knob a half turn clockwise as far as it will go (fig. 4).
The appliance must now be rinsed through to eliminate residues of descaling solution from inside the appliance.
Proceed as follows:
• Remove the water tank, rinse and fill with clean water.
• Reposition the tank.
• Empty the collection container (under the cappuccino frother) full of liquid and then put it back under the
cappuccino frother.
• Turn the steam knob a half turn counterclockwise (fig. 3).
18
Hot water is run off from the cappuccino frother into the container below and the appliance displays:
RINSING
• When the water tank is empty, the appliance displays the message:
RINSING COMPLETED TURN KNOB
• Turn the steam knob clockwise as far as it will go (fig. 4) and refill the water tank with clean water.
• The descale program is now complete and the appliance is ready to make coffee again.
NOTE: if the descaling cycle is interrupted before completion, the appliance continues to display the descale
message and the program must be started again from the beginning.

The wand is leaking water


If the knob is fully closed and it is still leaking it's more likely that you have a valve or scale problem.  Either the seals in the shutoff valve are worn, or there is scale buildup in the valve which is preventing it from sealing properly.  First thing I would try is running descaler through your machine several times and seeing if that improves the valve seal.  Obviously if you are having a problem with the steam wand, make sure to run the descaler through the wand and not just the spoon !  If you've never descaled your machine and have had it for a while, you might want to run descaler through 6 or more times, letting the descaler liquid sit in the system between flushes to really get at the scale.  If it does not improve with descaling, then you should bring your machine to an appliance/coffee machine repair shop for them to look at the valve.

Power light on, no warning light, doesn't heat up at all


Your resettable thermostat turned off the high power heater circuit and the red warning light. The heater got too hot when the boiler became empty of water. This is to keep the heater from burning out if the boiler becomes empty. To reset the thermostat, turn the micro casa a leva over. There is a yellow plug near the center of the bottom which is easy to pry out. Stick a screwdriver, pencil, toothpick, chopstick or whatever else is lying around into the hole and gently reset the thermostat button. You will hear a click when it resets. You are then ready to go.
