Stuck filter screen screw on DeLonghi BAR32

I've tried several times to remove the BAR32's boiler outlet filter for cleaning, but the screw doesn't move when I try to unscrew it (see Figure 28 in the user's manual).

Even clamping the screwdriver with a pair of vice-grips to create more unscrewing torque doesn't help.

How can I remove the outlet filter's screw?

    I run a large dose of CleanCaf (citric acid) through the whole thing regularly, so it's probably clean. Taking the filter off is probably not all that important, it's just that I want to see how clean it is.

    You're probably right, Pierre, so I'll take your advice and leave it alone. Merci ! / Thanks!

How do you remove the round plastic ring that covers the fuel filter assembly on a 2003 Hyundai Elantra GL? It looks like it screws off but it's stiff and doesn't want to move. Help?


those cars have the filter as part of the fuel pump inside the tank,What you are describing is the lock ring for the fuel pump module that needs removed first then the module can be removed

Cleaning the pump


The filter is part of the screw cover, there is probably something stuck in the filter that is preventing it from pulling out.
Make sure you have unscrewed it as far as it will go anti-clockwise, and try pulling it at the same time to loosen it.

Aquarius wf541. Am trying to unscrew and remove pump filter at front to clean and check for blockages as leaking water all over the floor.. Kick plate removed ok. turned filter anti clockwise as oer...


There must be something stuck in the filter, as normally it should pull straight out once you have unscrewed it.
Try screwing and unscrewing it at the same time keep twisting and pulling at the filter.
If you can't tremove it, then you sre going to have to remove the complete pump in order to clear the obstruction
Hope this helps you ..

Replacing the pipe unit


Here's how it works....
An initial short run of the pump draws water from the reservoir into the boiler where it is heated by an electrical heating coil. There are two outputs from the boiler, one from the top runs through a pipe to a steam valve. When the steamer handle is turned, the steam valve opens and steam is piped out through the steam tube for frothing milk. The second output from the boiler is on the underside and is stopped by the normally closed flow valve. When the water in the boiler reaches the right temperature, a sensor switches on the OK light. When the light is on, the user pushes the pump switch and more water is pumped from the reservoir. The pressure in the boiler increases because the pump is trying to push in more water and this forces the spring loaded boiler flow valve to open allowing hot water to run out. As the sump filled with ground coffee is fitted to the boiler output, the water is forced through the coffee and out of the sump where it pours into a waiting cup.
When enough coffee has been poured, the user switches off the pump. The boiler pressure falls and the spring on the flow valve pushes the valve shut again.
------------ The first three steps aren't strictly necessary for disassembly however if you're using a long handle screwdriver then removing the base makes it easier to gain better access to some of the screws.
Step 1. Remove the screw on each base arm.
Step 2. ... then lift and remove the arms.
Step 3. Remove the two screws on the base of the unit. Unlike in this photo I would recommend you avoid resting the machine on its back unless you are sure it has been completely drained. The black plastic base can now be pulled away allowing easier access to some of the screws that will be removed later.
Step 4. Undo the two screws on the top rear.
Step 5. Remove the coffee tamper by pulling and twisting.
Step 6. Remove the three screws. These are anti tamper screws and are star shaped with a nipple in the middle.
Step 7. With these screws removed, the top may be lifted away. The hotplate on the top section is still connected by a couple of thin wires so lift it carefully.
Step 8. To help with shifting the top out of the way, disconnect the hot plate/boiler heater connection. This will allow you to push the top of the unit away giving you the room you need to get inside.
Step 9. Unscrew the electrical safety earth and move the earth wiring out of the way.
Step 10. Use some long nose pliers to pull out the circlip that holds the boiler inlet pipe in place. Pull out the pipe to disconnect it from the boiler once the circlip has been removed.Step 11. Unscrew, remove and clean the diffuser.
Step 12. Remove the two screws . The black plastic underside casing can now be pulled away (plastic tabs need to be pushed aside ). Step 13. Pulling away the plastic underside once screws and tabs are removed.
Step 14. Loosen the four black Torx (star shaped) boiler screws . Water in the boiler may leak out at this point so ensure the unit is upright and a towel is placed underneath.
Step 15. Remove the four nuts (three arrowed) from the underside of the boiler unit.
Step 16. Lift up the top of the boiler assembly along with the steam outlet and place to one side. The two halves of the boiler assembly are sealed with a rubber gasket which should remain attached to the upper housing. Make sure this is properly in place when reassembling.
Step 17. The lower boiler assembly can now be lifted out.

Blockage


Your filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint or muck. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws, torx screws. The panel will drop and come off. The filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels and unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Try your washer.

cleaning the tower fan consists of this, i took the time to figure it out! unscrew top two screws on back of tower fan. then on bottom of tower fan is a screw cover,(pin size hole in middle of circle) pull cover off. unscrew hidden screw, and now with a little force it should pop right off. it exposes the filter and all it interior. front screen does not come off. oh yeah,your welcome!
