Subject: Help! Delonghi icona machine not working
 

I purchased my Delonghi icona ECO310 coffee machine 3 years ago and it made perfect espresso coffee - up until two days ago.  Water not flowing from the tank.  Have tried/cleaned everything.  My husband stripped it down last night and we still do not know what the problem could be. The steamer works though. The only thing I can think of is that it has never been descaled - stupid me!  Anyone any ideas on how to rescue it or will I consign it to the electrical recycling bin and buy another?

You got your money's worth out of it.  If you want a machine to last 10+ years you need to spend a bit more this time.  You will also probably need a better grinder.

Buying advice: GRINDER GRINDER GRINDER. Don't cheap out on the grinder.
