Delonghi pixie around 8 years old has started leaking at the bottom on left hand safe looking from front, occasionally a hissing noise when heating
I have a delonghi Nespresso 125. S how can I see a manual?
The coffeeis going out through the machine and onto bench not in the cup
C60 plug in cord and power on and just get blinking lights in session of 3 blinks repeatedly. Any ideas?
Is the cup base removable for taller glasses?
When press the Lungo option the water does not shut off, it keeps filling the until I turn the unit off. Can this be be fixed?
It is weird. It may be set to very long and your cup may not hold all the water. Try to set the dosage again.
I have the same problem. On lungo the water fills the drip tray below to overflowing though it is not actually overfilling mug. Mug fits beautifully and this water must come from inside not down the filling spout. Have to empty the used capsule/drip trays every use which is a pain. Please does anyone know about this. Cup not overfilling, still room at the end.! Elizabeth
Our Nespresso is type EN 125.A. The short and long cup lights are flashing continually, then shuts itself off?..
My De'Longhi Nespresso en520 only makes long black with the merest amount of water, usually I heat the cup first using this setting, still only small amount of hot water coming out.
The other settings are okay, yes I have de-scaled it, not recently though, could this be the problem even though the other settings work? what do i do?
Have you tried holding the button down, releasing when you have the amount of water/coffee you prefer? You can do a different amount for each button.
The machine should "remember" your preference until you redo.
Sorry if you have already done this with no success.
The on-off button has failed. I can no longer turn the machine on. The button feels 'squashy' - there is no click. Is there some way to by-pass the button and use thevpowerpoint only?
What is the best way to clean the milk frother. Even though I clean it after each use, the milk catches on the bottom and has a burnt mark on one spot which I can't seem to get to clean off anymore. The machine is only 6 months old??
We have had our delonghi pixie for 18 months and as some of you have said take it away with us as we cant be without it. But over a period of time it is making smaller and smaller coffees. What i now do is use the coffee machin e s boling water to put some in the cup before I use the capsule so I buy the black one so it is a strong coffee.. We have had trouble with our frothier as well. It's just not hot enough. I rang nespresso and had a lovely lady that took me through a few steps and it heated up the milk but now it's Luke warm again. On average we have 10 cups of coffee a day , maybe it's wearing out. If my pixie did die
I would have to go and buy another one straight away as it is the best coffee I have ever tasted.
Anyone else had this problem?
Does your nespresso pixie machine let smoke out while making a cup of coffee?
How do I get the milk frother to work?
Can you make a cappuccino with the pixie?
Does the Pixie machine make Hot Choclates? Can you buy hot choclate pods for it?
The Longo button on my machine only lets through 5 sec of water, is there anything I can do to reset it to the original factory setting? or make it work for longer time?
According to the instruction manual (p.21) you can reset to factory settings by following these steps:
1) If the machine is on, turn it off
2) Press the Lungo button and keep it pressed down while you turn the machine on
3) Factory settings of 40ml for an Espresso cup, or 110ml for a Lungo cup, should now be re-installed
We needed to do this once because of lower than normal volumes coming through and it worked.
Does anyone know the best way to make a good long black using the Pixie? I find the Lungo button too small....does anyone else actually drink long black coffee? I think Im in the minority :)
Can I make iced coffee's with the pixie?
