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)
This is problem I’m having. There is only one tiny hole? I needed my 2 times mag glasses to find it. The double shot cup needs cleaning with the needle device, constantly. Otherwise happy. I’m tempted to drill another hole in the double shot cup.
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
I have no idea. Best get your purchase receipt ready and call them on the number on their warranty card.
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.
FWIW I have never seen a blue light on my machine. Red green and yellow (power, brew ready, steam ready) are the only ones mentioned in the manual. None blink. Yours may be indicating some fault but nothing about blinking lights is mentioned.
How to descale the machine?
I'm a firm believer in benign neglect: if it ain't broke ...
But out of curiosity I Googled it. Seems there's several help sheets out there using different concoctions. Results will probably vary as could the effect on your machine's longevity. Proceed with caution!
Where can we order some rubber for the coffee machine that we have. The rubber is no longer working and it is water from the place where the coffee go's in
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
