Question about DeLonghi Caffe Figaro BCO110 Espresso & Coffee Maker
problem is that the heated water is leaking out of the drip chamber.
This is caused by the fact that they were to cheap to use stainless
steel screws that hold the chamber top to the bottom. The screws have
rusted and the hot water can escape the drip area and runs down next to
a plastic tube that delivers the hot water to the top of the coffee
maker from the heating element. To repair you have to remove two screws
that are on the underside of the hot water drip area above the coffee
filter. Then there are 3 tabs that have to be released and separate the
cover that has the from its base. When you pop off
this cover, you will see the remains of 4 screws that are badly rusted.
I used a small ez-out and drill to remove the remains. Be very careful
to not drill the pilot hole through the top. I got lucky and was able
to remove the screws and replaced them with stainless steel. An
alternate method would be to use a food grade 100% silicon adhesive and
glue the to back together. This method may leak in the future, so try
to get the old screws out first.
I would recommend a MR coffee $30 to $50 models, on sale, for coffee before I would ever buy this European designed junk. I took this thing apart and just shook my head
