Question about DeLonghi EC701 Espresso Machine
I am located in SW Denver Colorado and have a DeLonghi EC701 that appears to have a pump not work.The pump seems to just very, very slowly drip espresso...but the steamer works just fine.
I contacted Delonghi customer service but they were NO help at all...not under warranty. There is a service location listed about an hour from here, but they are not responsive.
Any ideas? I really like this machine, but am thinking I have to buy new unless I can get this fixed.

I had the same issue. Scale build up in the port that routes water to the boiler outlet for the coffee filter basket. Frother tube was fine.
I used CLR to open it back up. Used 1 part to 4 of water and ran a whole reserviour through the unit. At first, it only dripped and then finally it blew open when the CLR dissolved the scale.
Make sure to run lots of clean water through the unit after so that you don't end up drinking acid with your next cup. I ran about a gallon through to rinse it out.
