I've had a Sunbeam EM6910 for several years that served me well. Unfortunately it died on me last week.
I shopped around and was just about o get a new EM 7000 but the Handbreak came shopping with me.
She made me get a Delonghi Magnifica s ECAM22110SB. She liked the idea of integrated grinders that don't mess up her kitchen.
Now that I'm stuck with it, does anyone know where I can get an instruction manual that isn't so basic? Ive been messing with the settings trying to make a decent coffee. I'd like to restore the settings back to the factory settings and start all over again.
I've tried the Delonghi site but it won't allow me to download their manuals.
Thanks .

Beyond what's in the manual, there's probably not much more that could be offered, since it's a super-auto. Each one is different and highly specialized and complex inside.

Can't it be rebooted or reset?
If I unplug it, count to 10, take away the first number I thought of then press the power button?  :)
Surely there has to be a way.

I knew there had to be a way.
I called Delonghi and spoke to a lovely lady who called me back with the answer.
Hold down the power and single espresso buttons then turn the power on from the back.
This apparently resets it back to the factory settings.
Great. Now I can start with a clean slate.

Whist we're on the topic. Do any coffee  connoisseurs on this forum use a Delonghi 22110?
Are you happy with it and can you offer any advice o getting a descent latte out of it?

You have been here long enough to know that there is not a lot of love for Super Auto machines. The "built in" grinders are for the most part sub par and the automation of the brewing process limits your ability to adjust the shots. They are great for brain dead operation early in the morning or in an office where people just want something hot to drink where excellence is not the top priority.

Feed it good coffee and you will likely get acceptable results but it is not a machine to geek out with. YMMV!

I should have learned my lesson last time I took The Handbreak shopping with me.
I once decided on a little aluminum boat that I can take up to the lakes and do a little fishing with the boys and maybe camping with the family.
Well! She came along and forced me to get a comfortable fast, brand new, fiberglass, inboard, bowrider that is built for speed, comfort and NO FISH GUTS. She hated it because I drove too fast and I hated it because I couldn't fish out of it.
I SOLD it at a huge loss!!

I suppose she'ld also want to chose my next wife. LOL

Belated update.




Who else but Harvey Norman would take back a coffee machine after 3 weeks?
Tried several different coffees and settings. I couldn't even get a decent crema out of it.
So I eventually gave up and took it back. The manager agreed to replace it with a Sunbeam  EM7000.
Ah! The world is beautifully again. I'm now enjoying great coffees every time.

If only the Handbreak would have faith in me.

Thank you Gerry Harvey.
