New unit just won't work - keeps saying to insert brewer unit

Hi,
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!

    EAM3500 I get the same message--"insert brewing unit"  after it makes a loud buzzing/grinding noise.  I have taken everything apart, and cleaned it, etc to no avail.  Delonghi Customer service is less than optimal, Onlyrecommended that I send it to some rude guy in NY to fix.  I am appalled that my $1500 coffee maker is broken 2 weeks after warranty expired.

    I have exactly same problem



    From initial start up after choosing language etc - instead of the final "turning off please wait" it went straight into wanting to grind beans, loud noise then briefly displayed "ground too fine.." error message.



    I turned it off but ever since machine demands to have "brewer unit" inserted as you described

    Sounds like your Steam Generator heating element has blown. You need to check it with a multi-meter for continuity. best to have it repaired by a service agent as they will also service the hiolw machine It wiol cost around $150 all up inlcuding labour and parts

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.

Wall mounted Hitachi TV turns on to show only the startup screen what can I do?!


Do a hard reset to this TV and check. If it do not help you, contact the authorized service centre. A corrupted firmware might be the reason. A firmware update is necessary.
To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset.

My Saeco Royal Professional says coffee beans empty although it is full


hi,
there is a small measuring device between the grinder and the brewer, that measures grind coffee flowing into the brewer. the brewer is the removable part on the right side of the machine.
it looks like that the measuring device is clocked or in worse case broken!.
my suggestion:
1.open the door on the right side
2. remove carefully the brewer/brew unit
3. clean it under warm running water
4. clean out the surrounding area, coffee pan etc.
5. check the measuring device for clocked coffee. it is square, has a small flap and easy to access with the door open. take a soft brush and clean the area, there might be a lot of ground coffee!
6. carefully re-insert the brewer acc. to manual, do not force in place.
7. close the door and use the unit.
you might also remove all beans and clean the burrs, the ground coffee outlet and check that it is free and not clocked as well. otherwise no ground-coffee will reach the measuring device!
good luck!

Washer won't turn on at times. It acts like it has no power. Unplugging electric cord from wall socket and reconnecting seems to reset the unit and it functions normally for a while. After an hour or...


Try this first, unplug the unit and connect it to a different outlet and see if it corrects the problem. If it still continues, you will need to replace the control board. Good luck.

I have an LHD6594EBL dehumidifier that won't run and it keeps saying the bucket is full but the bucket is empty, we have a hose attached and don't use the bucket,


Sue, if you haven't noticed any water draining from the hose recently, it may be that the hose connection and tubing of the unit are clogged and the drained water pressure is causing the unit to show "Bucket Full." Also, if the bucket is not properly in place, whether you use the drain hose or not, it will cause the unit to stop functioning. You know how to correct that, so I won't go into detail on that issue.

To unclog the drain, you will need an 18" long, plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that will fit into the hose connection. TURN THE UNIT OFF AND UNPLUG IT. Then carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in until you reach the bend in the tubing. You will have to carefully work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
