Question about DeLonghi BCO120T Programmable Espresso / Coffee Maker

2 Answers

We havn't had our Delonghi BCO-120T but for 3 months & the coffee side stopped working all together. My husband is a great handyman & after taking that side apart. the tubing & tank looks brand new. There is not a mineral build up at all. He believes it is a heating element failure. Is there anywhere to buy the heating element? I have searched everywhere on line. shelly

We have the DeLonghi BCO 120T. The coffee side didn't work. We read about the thermal fuse could be the problem, since it regulates the heat element and on/off. We bought the fuses (2 on coffee side) clip the old ones off and replaced them. I'm happy to say, "we got coffee"! Fuses can be purchsed at an electronic store. Cost apprx 6.00.

In uk delonghi spares by agents of kenwood.co.uk. there is a directory of local agents. before ordering element check thermal fuse attached to the element it may be open circuit.

Help received the Delonghi Cafe Nabucco machine from a friend .no instructions ,how do I make expresso ,capp steam milk etc?


http://www.manualnguide.com/dl/10372/

Go to the above link and download the manual for the BCO 120T

It should provide the basics to get you going

Making a good espresso with steamed milk takes practice

If you don't have the frothing pitchers.. buy a couple in different sizes

Used cold low fat or non fat milk..

It takes practice to get good at it.. a hand on the side of the pitcher to make sure you don't scald the milk.. etc.. you don't want the milk to bubble/boil..

If you have a control valve for the steam pipe.. immerse the pipe about an 1/2 inch or so into the cold milk and slowly open the valve.. until you have it open full. Jostle the pitcher to move the milk around pretty much during most of the process once it begins to warm and foam.. raise the pitcher to heat the milk in the bottom .. then lower it as the foam begins to form...never letting the steam pipe out into the froth. Once done..wipe the pipe clean with a wet cloth.

Grind of the coffee is imporant as well as the roast and when you fill the portafilter don't over tamp.. If you pack it to tightly.. won't brew... too loosely.. brews too fast.. You want to see the coffee shots come out and form what's known as crema... which is a thin layer of tan or light brown foam on top of the shot. If aren't getting this..the coffee is either ground wrong or packed too tight.

It's an art..and nothing beats practice.. there are scores of books and internet threads on how to froth milk and make different coffee drinks..

I love a good Cafe Borgia now and again.. we live in the Portland, Oregon area.. everyone here is addicted to the bean..

Best of Luck

Delonghi coffee machine making an aweful noise,


Hi. Husband asks: When you first turn the machine on at the power point, does it make a motor sound and then stop, or is the awful noise apparent at that time.

If the awful noise starts as soon as you turn it on, then most likely there is a motor problem which will need to be seen by a Service Center.

The model number you posted does not work to find the manual, so go to there website I posted below and find your manual, because one of the models that is close to your shows the filter inside the top that you remove, and it has some nice pictures of how to replace it, so go here and find your, sorry I could not be anymore help.

At the top left side it says search key word or product model, type in your exact model- like BCO-130t,
