    I have power to the coffee maker, but it won't turn on.

    I opened up the coffee maker and put my ohm meter on the diode located at D9 and it showed that there is conductivity through that diode. Does that mean anything? or should it still be replaced?

It is kinda hidden and is hard to find. You will need to a soldering gun to replace it. The fuse is down by the element and has a heat resistant sheath over it. It does not look like an auto fuse. Good luck. Mark.

How do I program my DeLonghi DCM 485?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

First you must set the clock. Page 6 of this pdf manual:

Then prgram per instructions at the bottom of page 6 and the top of page 7 of the same manual. I note step 2 is missing from the manual.....

3. Press the CLOCK button until the desired brewing time is displayed

(See "How to Set the Clock" section of the manual).

4. Press the ON/OFF button to confirm the automatic time selected.

NOTE: The display panel and the on/off indicator light will flash.

5. Press the PROGRAM button to return to the current time of day (the

ON/OFF button will continue to flash.) The brewing cycle will begin

once the set time is reached and the ON/OFF button stops flashing.

6. If you want to check the automatic time selected, press the

PROGRAM button.

7. To override the automatic brew function, press the ON/OFF button

and the coffee maker will start immediately. Press the ON/OFF
button again to switch the coffee maker off.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

it sounds like the pump inside is bad, from either a clog or fuse perhaps.the pump sends the water thru so thats the likley problem.

Coffee drips out of spigots, taking a long long time to make an expresso

The seals that are located inside the unit are probably bad or have some debris stuck under them. First unplug your unit before you take it apart. You may have to call the customer service to see if this unit is still manufactured or iff parts are available. If not I am sorry that ther is no quick fix for this problem unles you change the seals.

Will not brew

the fuse is inline.follow the wire back from the heating element. the fuse has a heat resistant sheath over it,and it will be right next to the element. It doesnt look like an auto fuse. It has wires on both ends. It will silver in color. It also is soldered to the wire that runs to the element. I picked this one up at Radio Shack. I hope this helps you. Good luck. Mark.

Light is on but coffee won't brew.

Patti, you probably have a thermal fuse blown.

Won't brew

bring white vinegar to a boil and pour it into the perforated top, the water reservoir and the link between the water reservoir and the brew basket. let sit a few minutes, pour it out and do it again.
put the water reservoir back in, put water and vinegar solution ( half and half) in. Try to start it again. Mine did this last year and this fixed it right away. Try to clean the coffee maker using the vinegar solution once a month to avoid this problem.

Delonghi dcm 485 power on but will not brew

THANKS "Guest" - you just saved me $100 !
I had already bought a new coffee maker (Krups) when I came across your post.  The thermal fuses (there are two of them) are indeed hidden - they are right underneath the metal braces/clamps that push them against the heating element that they are meant to monitor.  If you take off these clamps and pull back the white insulation you can easily replace the fuse(s).  What you need is:
- volt meter
- needle-nose pliers
- Radio Shack thermal fuse 228C (catalog #270-1321) - these are rated at the same temperature and look fairly identical.  They cost $1.69 at your local Radio Shack
You do NOT need a soldering iron.  So: - take off the bottom of the coffee maker - take off the clamp(s) and pull back insulation. - put your volt meter on either side of the fuse and check for continuity.  In my case, one had no resistance (good) and the other had no connection (bad). - take your needle nose and pry open the clips on the end of the wires that connect to the bad fuse ... put in the new fuse (make sure the polarity matches ... just in case) and scrunch the clips together again - replace everything
In order to make this easy to do, I disconnected the water intake/outtake and also removed the two screws holding the whole heating assembly.  Made it a lot easier
