Question about DeLonghi DCM485 Coffee Maker

Stopped brewing Same problem. When I click the On/Off button I hear a faint click that seems to sound like the start of the brew cycle BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. If anyone has a photo showing the fuse location and type, I would appreciate seeing it. Thanks, Tim

    same prob. on 18 month old one; took the bottom off(had to make a rabbit-eared screwdriver by hacksawing and filing a straight edge one) and tested for a one circuit with an ohmmeter; lo! the thermistor(the round porcelain knob with 2 connectors to it and spring clamp over it) was open! jiggled it and it closed the circuit! tested it with a cup of water in it and everything works again!

Tim, I do not have any pics of the fuse. If you follow the 2 wires that connect to the element upwards you will find it. It is covered with a heat resistant sheath.It is right next to the heating element. The fuse is maybe a half inch long with wires on each end. I believe mine was silver. Good luck, I hope this helps you. Mark.

My black and decker coffee pot wont brew everything seems to be fine all the lights and the clock work but when i push on it wont start brewing


There is a momentary contact switch that is probably. You gran get one at the mfr. or maybe locally. When you press the brew button, you should hearing it engage . That would be a sound and a click like something has connected. If there is no sound, then your momentary contact switch is bad. Not too expensive. Probably a 5-10 minute job.

Hi Its hard to say with what you have said, but if the brew unit was cycling slowly, it may be the board. Close the door and make sure that everything is in but the brew unit. Turn the machine on and see if it cycles the gear in back to the starting point. It may take a few minutes to cycle if its the board. If it returns its the board. I have some boards.

Tassimo Coffee Maker: Tell me how to operate it. I can fill the water, put the pod in and all the lights keep flashing. Pressing the start/stop button does nothing.


• All lights will blink the first time you turn on your
machine. This is your cue to prepare your machine for use by
following the quick instructions in Step 1 on separate insert.
• If the water level runs low while you are preparing a
beverage, all lights will flash. Simply remove and refill the
water container, and brewing will continue automatically
where it left off. It should not be necessary to discard the T-DISC
and start over.
• The AUTO light will blink throughout the brewing process.
Some drinks require a pause in brewing as part of the recipe
for brewing your perfect cup - this is to allow the optimal flavors
to unfold and is a normal part of the brewing process. The AUTO
light will continue to blink throughout this process.

HOW TO MAKE A DRINK
• Place the mug of your choice on the cup stand.
• When the STANDBY light illuminates, insert the T-DISC® of your choice
and close the clamp.
• The HEATING light will blink as the brewer heats the water to the
optimal temperature for your drink.
• Once the proper temperature is reached, the AUTO light will
illuminate. When it lights up, press the start/stop button to begin
the brew cycle.
• The AUTO light will continue to flash throughout the brewing cycle.
PLEASE NOTE: Some beverages have a pause in brewing
after the initial influx of water into the T-DISC®.
• The MANUAL light will illuminate when your drink is ready.

Coffee not brewing after grinding


After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)

This sounds like normal operation of this type of unit.

Look at the brew funnel. is coffee coming out of it all the time during the brew cycle?

If so, then what you are hearing is the water supply solenoid cycling.

I PUT SWITCH ON FULL BREW AND IT STOPS WITHIN 30 SECONDS. WHEN I PUT IT ON HALF BREW IT DOESN'T STOP RUNNING


It sounds to me like the Timer board is damaged, to test it set the small lock lever on the board to on (hopefully you have the electronic timer board in there) then select the cycle half or full then hold down the brew button until you hear 3 clicks then release. After about 1min or if using a measuring pitcher stop the brewer a 2ltrs, by turning the on/off switch off. Wait until flow stops then check water level and note. Turn brewer back on and press and release brew button and this time if it stops and gives you the same amount as you just got when programming then the timer is fine, just recalibrate it for full brew using the method above.
