Question about DeLonghi CAFE DUO Dual Drip Coffee Maker
After several months of problem free service, the timer and "on" lights on the right hand side of the machine both blink simultaneously. If I press the on button on that side, the machine comes on and brews, the brew light is steady and the timer light goes off. As soon as the cycle is complete, both light start blinking at the same time again. I have lost the manual and don't know if the issue is addressed there or not. Unplugging the machine and plugging it in again does not reset it. Any help?
I tried the On/Off and PROG buttons simultaneously but nothing happened. Then I just guessed and pressed the HOUR and MINUTE buttons simultaneously and it worked. My wife's going to love me for this one (Ha-ha).

The manual indicates this means that it is time to decalcify the machine. After doing so, press the ON/OFF and PROG buttons at the same time for 2 seconds. Jeff, Burbank CA

Thanks for your inquiry, Barbara Williams!
I understand that the lights on your Frigidaire washer are blinking and beeping. It sounds like your washer is providing a set of error codes. Your control panel may need to be replaced. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper diagnosis to be completed to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
This type of diagnosis will require taking voltage readings at the control board with a meter to find the root cause of the failure. Please see the rest of the information provided & the images below for the accessing, testing & replacement instructions.
1). Put the washer into the Diagnostic Test Mode per the Tech Sheet. 2). Did the Right Hand Interface light up? 3). IF the Right Hand Interface did not light up in Step 2 check for 5 VDC on the UIP3 wire connector coming off of the control board to the Right Hand Interface from (Pin 1 to Pin 2) and from (Pin 1 to Pin 3). 4). IF you do not have the 5 VDC then remove the MI3 connector from the Machine Control board. IF the display lights; replace the Motor Control board. IF the display does not light; replace the Machine Control Board. 5). IF you do have the 5 VDC then replace the Right Hand User Interface. 6). IF the Right Hand Interface does light up. Lock the controls by pressing the control lock button for 3 seconds. 7). Once the control has been locked press the power pad. IF the control lock light blinks when the power button is pressed it tells us the power button is sending the output from being pressed to the right hand interface but the right hand interface is not responding and will need to be replaced. 8). IF the control lock light does not blink when the power button is pressed replace the center user interface.
