De Longhi Magnifica Esam4200

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Here's a little problem that has been bothering us for a couple of months.

The machine is about 6-7 years old. No problems with it before, apart from my suspicion that the amount of coffee grounds we wwere losing was partdue to the old infuser. Not happened since the new one fitted

We now have watery coffee being deposited into the drip tray. It is probably about three or four teaspoonfuls every time. So a cup of coffee, is less than expected. Just cannot see why

I have had a new infuser for the past 12 months, and this has been stripped and cleaned. No result.

I have split the machine apart, cleaned and regreased the tamper 'O' ring

regreased the lead srcrew

given it a good talking to

Still drops the thin coffee into the drip tray.

Anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this? De Longhi have offered to look at the machine if I send it to them!

Thanks for even thinking about it.
