Delonghi machine blew up this morning while I was pulling a shot.

It blew around where the machine holds the pf, not on the gasket, but outside that.

The pic:

As you can see its leaking between the metal and the plastic.

I guess thats what I get for buying a cheap machine.

I can't get in contact with Delonghi at all, and I have no idea what to do.
Can anyone help me out?

also I should let everyone know I am getting no pressure in the steamer wand either.

And as a note, I haven't even had this machine a month yet.....

sounds like you cracked your boiler or cracked the top of the head :cry: Where did you buy it? It should still under store warranty. Good luck!

Today I removed all the caseing and ripped apart the machine.

After numerous attempts at pulling a shot with the machine housing off, I found the problem. There was no seal on one of the hoses and the hose was cracked.

After some modding and rebuilding, the machine works again!

Yay!

I pulled about 15 shots after to make sure.

Problem solved.

it is a pump driven machine.

however it is a pressurized basket. I'm in the processes of getting a non-pressurized basket and another portafilter to go naked :)

Those things will definitely help to lock onto the best dose, distribution and tamp technique. I used a Capresso machine up until 1.5 weeks ago and it utilizes pressurized baskets. My new machine doesn't have any gadgets like that and the difference in shot timing, shot taste, etc. is like night and day. I'm still in that learning curve though to find exactly what works best. How is the shot quality coming from the DeLonghi? I've never owned one of their pump machines, but did use a DeLonghi steam machine for 6-7 years and it's still working to this day. Later!
