Question about Wega Mininova EPU Espresso Machine

Leaking espresso machine

I have a Delonghi BCO264 espresso/coffeemaker.  It has worked great for 1.5 years and all of a sudden the seal on the espresso part seems to be weakening because it is now leaking and spitting out grinds.  I have tried a local repair shop but said it would cost $45 +parts...I think I need a new seal and maybe my husband can do the labor but I can't seem to find any info on delonghi parts or on seals for espresso machines. Help!

It sounds like the water line is blocked. There is an obstruction in the line somewhere. This must have happened at the factory. You could disassemble the machine, but would void the warranty. And I believe that you will need the warranty in the future for other problems. I know that it is not the news that you wanted to hear. But if you want to disassemble the machine let me know and I will try to explain.

How to descale espresso machines.


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.

Here is a basic generic picture of a espresso system of how they work.

My delonghi caffee nero machine-the coffee maker wont work,the hot plate doesnt warm either(although the lights come on. the espresso maker part works fine. Someone mentioned there is a fuse which blows...


If expresso maker part works, the fuse is ok. I think that the resistence of the hot plate is interrupted. You must use the guarantee's facilities. I think it is two years available.

I have a De'Longhi EC330S Pump Espresso Maker, 15 Bar it has been making great coffee for a year, but now the seals have blown and water just pours out from everywhere. Can it be repaired?


The problem seals on my EC330S are the one on the steam frother shaft and the connecting pipe from the pump to the boiler. The steam frother shaft seals are available from Buyspares.co.uk but the ones on the pipe from the pump are not available from them even though the pipe is. Mine are leaking badly so will have to look for some from a seal manufacturer if DeLonghi can't supply them.

Cafe Nero turns on, but will not make coffee


I understand this unit has a fuse inside that blows out. I cannot confirm this as I need to find a special screwdriver to open it. I'll post back my results if possible.
