Where is Water Level Indicator Light?

When descaling Delonghi PAC 290, I'm supposed to run machine until Water Level Indicator Light goes on. I've run my machine forever, even with the water tank out, and no light seems to be going on. Is Water Level Indicator Light the same as Alarm Pilot Light (and it just doesn't work)?

Manual shows On/Off Pilot Light, Timer On/Off Pilot Light, and Alarm Pilot Light. Where's the Water Level Indicator Light?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hoses for proper connection should have been included with your purchase. Without the hoses the set-up can not be done satisfactory. One is for fresh air supply and the other is the hot air exit hose. These are normally vented out a window. Check with the dealer where you perchased the unit from. If from a private individual contact them.

The descaling light stays on even though I have gone thru the process of descaling.


You are not completing the descale program. See below.

10.3 DESCALING
Due to the continuous heating of the water used to make the coffee, over
time it is normal for the tubing inside the machine to fill with lime scale.
When the light starts flashing( chap. 12-point 5), it is time to descale
the machine.
NOTE: when the light switches on, the coffee maker can still be used to
prepare coffee.
Proceed as follows:
• Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of
DURGOL descaler plus one liter of water. For subsequent descaling
operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorised
technical service centres.
NB: Make sure splashes of descaler do not fall onto surfaces sensitive
to acid such as marble, limestone and glaze.
• place a container with a minimum capacity of 1.5 litres under
the milk frother (Fig. 3);
• turn the machine on by pressing the button (Fig. 4).
• wait for the green and indicator lights to come on steady.
• press and hold the button for at least 5 seconds (Fig.14). The
light inside the button switches on (chap. 11 - point 8) to indicate
the start of the descaling program (the and lights remain
off to indicate that it is not possible to make coffee).
• turn the steam knob half a turn anticlockwise (Fig.5). The
descaling solution will come out of the milk frother and start to
fill the container underneath.
• the descaling program automatically performs a series of deliveries
and pauses, so as to remove the lime scale deposits from
inside the coffee maker.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
• after around 30 minutes, when the light comes on (chap. 12 - GB
point 1), turn the steam knob half a turn clockwise (Fig.6) until it
stops.
The machine must be rinsed so as to eliminate the residues of descaling
solution from inside the machine. Proceed as follows:
• remove the water tank, rinse it and fill it with clean water.
• reposition the tank.
• empty the collection container (located under the milk frother) that is
full of liquid, and then replace it under the milk frother.
• turn the steam knob half a turn anticlockwise (Fig. 5). Hot water will
come out of the milk frother and fill the container underneath.
• when the tank is empty, the light goes off and the light
comes on (chap. 12 - point 1).
• turn the steam knob all the way clockwise (Fig. 6) and fill the water
tank with clean water again.
• the program of descaling is hour terminated and the machine is
ready per do again the coffee.

NOTE: if the descaling procedure is stopped before completion, the
alarm (chap. 12 - point 5) is not deactivated and the procedure
must be started again form the beginning.

IMPORTANT: THE GUARANTEE IS NOT VALID IF THE ABOVE DESCALING OPERATION
IS NOT PERFORMED REGULARLY.

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.

In service menu there are 2 parameters you should look. First one - descaling - should be on 'done'. The second one is a counter - water used since last descaling - should be on 0.
