Question about Microwave Ovens

I have had a Lattissima Delonghi Nespresso machine for over a year and it has always been working perfectly until yesterday. Now I can't get any milk froth to come out. What do I need to do? Maybe some part is clogged but I m not sure how to unclog it. Thanks for help

Hello, A lot times when using the froth over a period times and cleaning it out good enough, milk gets little caked up in the froth spout. So you of course can fix this. You need to descale the machine, and maybe you have, but in addition use a paper clip or sewing needle and poke it in the small holes several times to free up the holes. After running the machine and descaling it, turn machine on like normal , wait until steam builds up and machine is ready for steaming, then get damp terry cloth towel, fold in half, to have enough room to put around froth end and protect hands from heat, open up valve let steam blow out. Then stop pressure do this few times, if the air holes are not equally flowing evenly, repeat steps with paper clip, until completely unclogged. This of course only works when machine is cleaned and descaled proper up to where the froth spout starts. Below I wrote you a little descaling story, which might help . I this helps you. Mike from fixya Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190. Thanks again, mike

Delonghi oven, magnetron working always, not stopping when you open the door


Sounds like one of the interlock switches(most microwaves have 3) is stuck or broken.The "hooks" on the door latch push these switches in when you close it.Take the cover off and you should be able to tell which one isn't working right.

I usually freeze my milk, to save daily shopping, Yesterday I bought a different make and it says on the bottle of milk 'not suitable for home freezing'? Unfortunately I put it in the freezer when...


Although this question is not really suited to FixYa, the answer is that when you thaw it the fat in the milk will separate and float to the top. It's really a quality issue rather than any health problems. You will not get sick by consuming it.

Freezability in regard to milk depends upon the fat content and how it's been homogenised within the milk, and these factors vary even within products within the same milk brand. In general, skimmed and semi-skimmed freeze best.

What does it mean to descale my tassimo? the yellow light is on and the screen keeps saying "descale". thanks


In order to keep your Tassimo machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Tassimo machine is intended for this specific use only. Mix the descaling product directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling packaging. Then replace the water container on the machine. Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc, bar code down and close the brew mechanism. As soon as the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. This will fill the brew cycle with descaling solution. Empty the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes. Then open the brew mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place. Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness.

Discard the remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it well and refill with fresh, cold water. Clean the machine by flushing water through it in the same manner and emptying the cup as it fills. Make sure that all the descaling solution has been completely rinsed away, and then flush two full water containers through the machine before using it again. Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and refill the water container and your Tassimo machine is ready to use. Also, before you descale your Tassimo machine, always unplug it. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Tassimo machine. This method works for most espresso machines, including some of these popular models: the DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, Gaggia 74507BCN Classic, Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, the BC0255 DeLonghi coffee machine and the Krups Nespresso CititZ XN 7006.

Your machine is new and its under warranty you have rights to replace it with new one. Call your dealer where you brought it, it's either they will replace it or send a service technician.
It will void the warranty if you try to unscrew something.
I hope my advice gives you an idea regarding your unit problem.

My DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM23210 coffee machine is leaking water from the back.


I received the exact same machine for Christmas yesterday and had the exact same problem! I took it back to Williams Sonoma today and exchanged it for another one and I just started it up and have the SAME problem! Water comes out the bottom onto the counter - never even makes it up through the machine. This must be a batch of lemons - I guess I'll call Delonghi tomorrow.
