Junk
by: Erica

A terrible coffee maker! I have had 2, both had the same problems! Leaks all over the counter like everyone elses', and also often doesn't wet the grinds causing nothing but yellow water to come out. The company replaced it the first time, but was very insulting and rude about it, and refused to replace it the second time! My coffee maker today wouldn't even push water through or heat up.. It is 6 months old..

poor experience
by: Anonymous

had one for 11 months, broke just before warranty ended. Problem is the perk sided would not function. Brought to service dealer, worked for one week, brought again to service dealer, again it broke after a few weeks, third time fixed, third time broke. Finally the company sent me a new one. After just two usages broke again. I am fed up with this model!

Mine leaks too!
by: Anonymous

Oh man, I so wish I would have read this before we redeemed a bunch of points for this machine! Just like everyone else, I have a leaky machine. Water leaks under the machine and all over the counter without any explanation. We've only had it a few months and when I called Delonghi, I was told the closest authorized repair center was over 45 minutes away. And, they were not sure they could fix it. Don't buy this machine!

Broken pump and leak
by: Anonymous

Don't buy it. Extremely disappointing. Broken pump within 1 year, then exchanged a new one. Again, broken pump within one year, then exchange a new one. Now, it has a leak problem. The water came out at the bottom without any reason. 4 cups water in but 2 cups turns out on the counter top. I cannot exchange this time because it just passed 1 year term.

leaks
by: Anonymous

Have had this machine for less than 1 yr. It leaks water when making drip coffee. A friend of mine also has this model. It also leaks. They called the company & was told there was nothing they would do to replace it. Seems they don't want to admit to having a problem with this model.
Last time I buy a Delonghi.

could be so much better
by: john imlah

didn't quite work when we bought it thought for the first while it was us. then it slowly started working less and less. after looking closely at the frothing part of the machine I found a small hairline crack in the plastic.(meant it was sucking air not milk) order new one and now works great ($10 part) The coffee maker quit working also but after taking it apart i found a burnt out thermal fuse and replaced it ( 79 cents) now everything works but still leaks water all over the counter

So far it sat in a repair shop for four months and could not be fixed.Finally had to be exchanged. The washers go and can not be replaced. The water leaks all over the counter and the coffee pot spills when pouring. Extremely disappointing!!
