What to do if the DeLonghi coffee machine squeaks?

Your DeLonghi coffee machine squeaks during the brewing process? The noise is usually very easy to fix. Find out where the squeak can come from and what you can do about it.

Forget about fats?

Fully automatic coffee machines must be greased regularly so that the individual parts in the brew group can literally move smoothly. If the greasing does not take place, at some point there will be friction between the moving parts. This creates a squeaking noise. Therefore, it makes sense to grease the DeLonghi coffee machine before it squeaks. Unfortunately, DeLonghi does not dictate how often the machine should be greased. Other manufacturers talk about once a month or. every 500 purchases.

Squeaking through leftover coffee

If you do not clean your DeLonghi coffee machine regularly, noise can develop even more quickly: coffee powder residue can make it difficult to move. Read how to clean and grease your coffee machine below.

Instructions for cleaning and greasing the DeLonghi coffee machine

  • food-safe silicone grease
  • tap water
  • brush

1. Switch off the DeLonghi coffee machine!

This step is extremely important. If you try to remove the brew group while it is ready for operation, i.e. directly under the grinder, this will result in permanent damage to the machine. So switch off your DeLonghi coffee machine first.

2. Open the DeLonghi

Open the front cover of your coffee machine, behind which the brew group is located, like a door. First pull out the drip tray completely and clean it thoroughly. The brewing group can be easily removed from DeLonghi by simultaneously pressing the two red buttons on the right and left and pulling on the group.

3. Clean with a brush

Use the brush to remove the loose, dry coffee powder both inside the fully automatic coffee machine and on the brewing group. Alternatively, you can vacuum your fully automatic coffee machine with a vacuum cleaner on the lowest setting.

4th. Clean wet

Then hold the entire brew group under warm running water and rinse it well. Avoid using detergent so as not to affect the taste of the coffee.

5. Fats

Let the brew group dry well and grease it with a little silicone grease, e.g.B. well with the help of a cotton swab. Only grease the moving rails on the brew group and the shaft in the back of the coffee machine. Do not under any circumstances lubricate the filter! This leads to constipation.

6th. Reinstate

Put the brew group back in place and press firmly until it clicks into place. Replace the drip tray and close the cover. Your DeLonghi coffee machine should no longer squeak.
