How gdo you descale the machine
How do I reset my Stirling coffee machine because it does not come on
After one year it appears the 15barpump isnot working well at all with coffee coming out in drips and with inadequate force to produce systems. The head and everything else is clean. Does this mean the pump has died ? The unit has3 years warranty. How do I get this issue fixed?
Why is coffee not coming out! Are the filter baskets solid or are they meant to be solid.(No Holes)
After using the steamer & hot water spouts the machine moans, groans & releases water & steam into the bottom tray; is this normal?
My coffee machine is no longer working. How do I claim the warranty? Do I bring it in-store? Thank you
What is the weight of the machine?
Hi! I’ve turned it on and i can’t seem to get it drip coffee. The machine is only blinking the red & blue lights. Can I have a copy of the manual? I no longer have mine.
You may care to check online for a manual.
To check your machine works remove the portafilter (the handle assembly thingy that holds the coffee). Make sure you have put water in the tank (you did fill the tank didn't you). Then switch unit on (bottom switch), make sure steam dial is on zero (about 1 o'clock position) and press the pump (middle) button. If water comes out you're halfway there.
Fill portafilter with ground coffee and GENTLY tamp down. Replace in its position, wait for the green light (or until temperature gets to about 92-94°) and press the pump button.
If no coffee comes out grind may be too fine or youve tamped it down too hard or both.
If none of the above work grab your receipt or proof of payment and ring Aldi to make a warranty claim if you're eligible.
How to descale the machine?

how much did the Stirling coffee machine cost from Aldi
how much did the Stirling coffee machine cost from Aldi ?
My milk frothed has stopped working. I’ve followed the trouble shooting guide but it’s still not working
The only things I can think of, that are not mentioned in the Instruction Manual, are -
1. make sure the left-hand end if the rubber cover on the top of the Milk Reservoir lid is pushed down flat - there is a milk cut-off switch under it. If it not down, all you get is steam, but no milk.
2. make sure the Milk Reservoir is pushed home fully so that there is no gap between the body of the machine and the back of the Reservoir.
My milk frother has stopped working. I have consulted the manual...any other suggestions.? Can I order a new frother
As water starts escaping from the gap between the brew head gasket seal and the ring of the porta filter, it gets inside the collecting cup and thereby weakens the coffee strength as well reduced creama, I want to replace the gasket to see if it stops the leak.
My question is where can I buy the accessory for Aldi Stirling coffer machine?
Same problem. Would also like to replace the gasket to see if this fixes the problem and would like to know where I can buy this gasket.
I replaced the gasket seal but it did not completely stop the leak on my Aldi Sterling Designer Collection machine. Some water still escaped over the portafilter wall. But it may be different in your case. We have had our espresso since August 2017.
The gasket seal only costs $7.5 so it may be worth a try.
Here are the details:
Part number: MS620342
Seller: Ellis Electrical, 14 Gladstone Rd, Dandenong, Vic. 3175
Phone: 03 9791 1486
(They also have an online shop on eBay)
Preps: I had to turn the espresso machine upside down to remove the gasket ring, brought to the shop for a perfect match. Get some Food-Safe Tap Lubricant (from Bunnings) and apply it to the new seal when putting it in.
Hi brought the Stirling espresso machine for my wife as a Christmas gift while it’s fine in every aspect the water flows through the coffee terribly slow and each time (waiting 30 seconds plus) the coffee handle is released it has pressure build up and explodes sending wet ground coffee everywhere. Definitely not needing de-scaling nor is te coffee ground too coarse etc. we have the receipt of purchase will Aldi return a full refund?

Hi I only purchased the ALDI Coffee machine a few months ago and the turning knob is stiff and now it’s leaking water everywhere and this morning not working at all. I can not find my receipt. Is there anything that I can do?
I have sent my machine back to Tempo as a warranty claim. Search internet for Aldi Warranty Claims and you should be able to find the instructions for a claim.
If you don't have your EFTPOS docket, you might have to estimate the date of purchase, but in any case Tempo will give you a statutory declaration to complete.
The serial number and model number will be on the machine. My claim is taking a long time to process as the e-parcel labels they sent by e-mail never arrived at my inbox, and they had to post them to me. I had a similar fault as yours, no response to control knob, and water leaks. Good luck!
I’ve had the machine for about 3 weeks and it has been working fine, however today I turned it on and all the water leaked out of the tank into the bottom tray in about 30 seconds. Does anyone know what the problem might be?
No I saw a few other reviews with the same problem. If you still have receipt you should be able to return for refund
The water tank is either not sitting properly in position or it's empty. This can cause an air gap between tank and seal, causing water to leak out. Remove the tank and refit, pressing down firmly from the top of the tank. Preferably fill the tank up with water before your refit it. It's happened to me a couple of times when I first got machine. If the tank is fitted properly, it doesn't leak. Cheers Philip.
Has anyone had any issues with water leaking underneath the machine, particularly when using the milk steamer?
No, I've been using the machine daily for over 5 months- no issues. Ensure you empty the bottom tray after every use- it fills very quickly; so the tray could overflow if you proceed without emptying after each use. And I always top up the water tank before I start- every time!
What grind should your beans ground. We were using 4.7... but not sure this is right. THANK YOU
Number 4.7 is specific to your coffee grinder - it's not the same on every grinder. A rough guide to find the correct grind is to test and try by making it finer and finer until your espresso machine has trouble pumping the water through - ie it becomes blocked. Then back off the grind a few steps until you get reasonable flow. That will give you your strongest coffee for those beans on your grinder and your espresso machine. If it's too strong for you then change the beans to a milder roast or bean source.
