Cleaning the "Portafiltro"

If anyone has successfully reassembled the portafiltro, do you know where the tiny spring is meant to go. I can guess that it's meant to push back the small oddly shaped cam that raises and lowers the coffee port cleaner, but can't find the way to seat it. (the machine appears to work perfectly without the spring though, though...

Its not the larger round spring but the tiny whiskery thing.

I hav error 21


I had the same issue with Out of Service 21. The pump was making noise during Self-test, then the error. I took the entire thing apart. I removed the pump, cleaned all the plastic/rubber parts, and reassembled. All seems to work now. The final piece that I cleaned was a tiny black washer inside the bottom portion of the plastic assembly that inserts into the pump solenoid. In the bottom of that piece (about 1/2 threaded) you'll see a star-shaped piece of plastic threaded INSIDE the barrel. I turned that out, cleaned the tiny black washer that blocks the hole, cleaned the spring, and turned the star piece back in. That seems to be what fixed it for me. However, error 21 in the manual indicates ANY issue with water flow.

Water for steamer but no water flows to make coffee


Remove the screw and shower screen under the brew head, make sure screen is clean, try running the head to see if water flows, if no water remove allen wrench screws, and check spring and valve seat, DO NOT LOSE SPRING AND VALVE. Try running head, if water does not flow, reassemble and descale machine.

I received a new lower burr grinder part from SAECO for my machine but no instructions on how to replace it. I know how to clean and replace the removable grinder part that fits into this. Do you have...


Hi
If you only got the lower burr it won't work. They should be matching burrs.
If you don't do it right, you will damage the grinder. You need a #10 Torex bit.

Insert the bit into the screw in the middle of a very clean grinder. Turn clockwise to loosen. Once the screw is out, pull the burr out, but be careful. There are ball bearings and springs under the burr. Make sure that everything is clean before reassembly. There are 3 holes in the bottom of the grinder. The springs go into the holes first. Then the ball bearings set on top of the springs. Place the new lower burr on top of the springs. A washer and the corkscrew go in next. Insert the screw in and with the bit in place turn (with a little down force) clockwise until the screw drops into place, then turn counterclockwise. It should turn fairly easy. Once you start putting pressure on the springs, try to turn the corkscrew. There is a notch that it slips into in the bottom of the grinder. Once it locks into place keep turning the screw until you start to turn the burr. That should be tight enough. Now reassemble the top burr and adjust.

Milk container doesn't heat milk..only the steam is released.


I was told this was a problem with the O rings on the machine (you need to keep these clean or replace them (if necessary) to keep the milk container working properly).

I did this and still had the same problem. Turns out the top on the milk container needed to be replaced. It's $20 from Delonghi but at the time of this writing is out of stock (I have waited three seeks so far and Delonghi is supposed to be escalating my request).

I finally got frustrated with the whole thing and completely disassembled the milk container top (there are a total of 5 screws and you need to remove the froth control slider to get to one of them) and gave everything a good cleaning. Pay attention to the small orifice on the inside of the chrome tube that the milk comes out of. Using a dental gum cleaning brush or similar sized brush and some hot soapy water should get the dried milk residue out. Inside the top is also a rubber piece that the froth regulator inserts into. Reomve this rubber piece and clean thoroughly. Make sure and clean all other areas inside the top with hot soapy water. Make sure to look the top over well as you disassemble to be sure note all component positions for reassembly. Make sure when reassembling that the cleaning button and its spring are reassembled correctly. The small red O ring on the end of the cleaning button's rod should be cleaned well and the small tube into which it inserts should be free of any milk residue. One last item to check is the rubber bushing that rubber milk uptake tube inserts into is clean and making a good seal. Note that this bushing should make a good seal on both sides (the side the rubber uptake insrts into and the side the upper side of the top inserts into. Make sure all parts are reassembled correctly. In general if you clean and rejuvinate all areas that need to make a tight seal you should get good results. I have no experience here but it would be my observation that even with a good thorough cleaning job the results may not last a real long time as it seems that parts in the top show wear after about a year and a half of daily use. In my oppinion the purchase of a new $20 top makes sense, but if you can get one or don't want to wait you can spend the 30 minutes to do the above cleaning. Because of apparent backorder issues at Delonghi this may also be a good idea to buy upfront. Make sure to include the 5 O rings in the order ($1 each) to avoid paying two shipping fees. I have found one of the O rings at Lowe but was unable to find a few of the sizes (smaller than Lowes sells).

The little spring should be on the underside of the plastic where the big spring is, hard to explain this.

I hope this will help you little

Replace the spring that holds the basket door closed


The spring can be replaced if you can get a new one - however it does take a lot of patience to get it aligned properly. I have purposely disassembled my 500 to clean out the tracks and basket latch and have successfully reassembled. In fact, right now I'm waiting for the coffee to finish to enjoy a fresh cup (although, all be told, at this point I'd rather go grab a beer! ;-) ) The trick with replacing the spring is that it has two different ends - one with a hook that is horizontal to the coil of the spring; the other hook perpendicular to the coil. The horizontal hook goes around the back peg of the latch lever, with this leg being against the bottom side of the lever. The other hook is used to maintain the tension and is placed against the side body of the sliding shelf. When placing the spring into place the angle of separation between the two legs is approximately 15 degrees - note: the legs do NOT overlap (ie, go past each other - they maintain their respective sides). The trick that I learned was to continue to apply downward force on the latch lever, thus forcing the retension peg to be as fully exposed as possible. This reduces the very frustrating occurrence of the spring slipping off the peg when you try to reinstall the cover. BTW, we've had this grinder/brewer for many years and thoroughly enjoy it - except for when the tracks gunk up & the basket spits out in the middle of brewing.....
