Question about DeLonghi BAR 140 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Noisy pump when i first used the machine it was only noisy until the coffee started to flow and then it just hummed nice and quietly,now it is noisy for the full duration of the pour and if you have two cups you have to hold onto them as they would vibrate away from the pouring coffee.Any suggestions? I've only had the machine for 3 weeks.(great coffee though)

    I ran the machine with no coffee a couple of times and this has done the trick, many thanks Bob.

    Now where can I get a 50mm tamp for making the perfect coffee?? Most manufacturers only cater for 52, 53, 57 & 58.

    It seems that DeLonghi have made their baskets an odd size.

Obviously, this unit has a warranty. Are you packing the coffee too tightly? Run the unit without any coffee and see if the vibration is still there. If it is, get it fixed. If not, modify what you're doing.

The water doesn't come out from the cofee spout

Once coffee is extracted, its passage from the brew group to the cup is a simple gravity flow. There is no pressure to push its flow.
Layers of dried coffee clog the passage. In your machine this is advanced clogging or the water is not passing through the coffee and being drained into the tray.
To prevent this, use rinse cycle every day after coffee making is completed.
Descale the machine using Manual descaling method.
Do not use Filter cartridges as the same are expensive & ineffective.

Any way to quiet this thing down. We need ear plugs to use it.

Guess you are somewhat exagerated!
Does it work ok? If makes your coffee, leave noisy it as it is.
Maybe you could contact the manufacturer of your unspecified cand noisy coffee maker trough thier website. and ask them if there is a way to "silence" it.

DLE2050 making strange spinning noise

I guess I wasnt clear enough. The dryer works ok, except for the rattling sound now. It will start when i push the start button, it heats, and dries the clothes. Just noisy where before the flow sensor went off, it was pretty quiet.

My Miele K9757ID has begun to make a really loud hum when the motor is working. (as you know this kicks in at regular intervals.) It used to be really quiet, and now it is really noisy. It is only 15...

Well i am sad to say that a problem is developing.
The compressor is starting to get tight in it's moving parts. This will continue to get worse until the compressor fails all together. If you measure the amp draw and compare this to the rating label you will see the amps are going up slightly.
Firstly check that the condenser is clean and there is plenty of air flow. If that is ok then you will need a technician to help you

BUNN VPR commercial coffee pot, not flowing in a steady stream just dripping

Your spray head has 5 to 6 little holes depending on the model and year, and it looks like you have scale, calcium or lime blocking them.
Since your model is a VPR pour model, you will have less trouble cleaning it with white vinegar than the permanent water connection type. I use a gallon of vinegar and filters for this.

Parts needed:
2 Clean, Rinsed Empty coffee cans
1 Gallon of White vinegar
5 coffee filters
1 Toothbrush, preferrably angled head

Start with your Bunn turned off and place an empty full size coffee can under the pour spout. Now place a filter in the brew basket to catch any fine particles you don't want poured back in the resevoir and heater. You will need to change this filter a few times as the trash starts coming out of your spout.

With the coffee can, brew basket, and a fresh empty filter in place you want to start pouring the vinegar in the tank while catching the water with the coffee can. As it fills with water you will need to dump the can down the drain until the full gallon of vinegar has been poured in the Bunn. Allow the excess water to finish flowing out into the coffee can making sure to leave half the water in the can to pour back into the coffee maker.

By now your tank should be filled with mostly white vinegar, and your coffee can should be at least half full of vinegar as well.
Now you can turn on the lower pot warmer to keep the solution hot and plug your Bunn into the outlet.

Allow 8 to 10 minutes for the heater to heat up and pour the half full coffee can of vinegar into the fill area. Allow the cycle to complete and replace the filter as needed, or if flow begins to slow down.
If your heads are clogged, use the toothbrush to clear the holes as the vinegar is flowing until you see all holes flowing vinegar.

Chunks of trash will dislodge in your heater tank and flow to your spray head, so keep that toothbrush ready.

Do this at least 5 times, then allow the Coffee maker to sit 30 minutes with the heater on to finish dissolving the lime and calcium deposits in the tank.

After 30 minutes start flushing the system with clean water to rinse out all of the vinegar, or until you can no longer smell vinegar in the coffee can.

Good Luck!

I was just given a rancilio audrey and a matching rancilio grinder. However no water is coming through the group heaed, just steam. I can't make coffee! The pump hums quietly and sounds like it is running...

Remove the shower screen and screw from the head, make sure screen is clean and run head without screen in place, if you get a good flow, problem on screen, if not then problem is on the inside of the machine between top of the head and pump. You can try descaling the machine.

Hot water won't flow into machine

You most likely need to prime the brew head. Follow the instructions in the owner's manual. To prime the brew head, you'll need to put run the machine without coffee until water starts flowing. One water flows, the brew head is primed and the machine is ready for normal use. You'll need to do this every time you run out of water. Regards, Denis
