Question about DeLonghi EAM3500 Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker
I have checked all of this and all is mounted correctly. I have turned off, pulled the plug out of the wall socket and then reconnected. It shows it is self diagnosing and then goes to please wait.... and just sits there and does nothing else. If after more than hour, I hit the power button, it then says its heating up, which it does and runs some hot water out which all looks normal, then it makes a few noises and gets back to insert brewer unit and stops.
I think I haved landed a "dud" and will need to get it replaced unless there is just some small thing I have overlooked!
These machines seem to respond to what their CS dept call "priming the pump." Turn on machine and after it has warmed up, turn the hot water valve or about 30-45 seconds. Shut it off and after a pause 30 seconds, repeat this process 2 additional times. Do the same 3 cycles in the steam mode. ( hit the steam button for frothing) Check openings where coffee comes out with a small wire, ect., to make sure they are clear. It should work.
