    At least on my unit, those screws weren't Phillips, but Torx Tamperproof T20! Shame on you, De'Longhi!

    • You are now ready to lift the top off.

    • Place one hand near the back, the other at the front, and lift.

    • You may want to lift the front and back individually by pulling one a little off the part before the other. Afterwards, lifting the top off entirely will be easier.

  9. Flip the device and remove one end of the tube from the water reservoir hole. Flip the device and remove one end of the tube from the water reservoir hole.
    • Flip the device and remove one end of the tube from the water reservoir hole.

    There are two tubes connected to the water reservoir hole. The one in the first pic is the one that goes to the water valve, which is the one that you pull through to the top. The one in the second pic is the short one from the bottom of the pump that can detached from the water hole and left in place, to be transferred later to the new pump. Detaching it from the from the filter as shown adds to the impression that this is the tube to the water valve to be pulled through to the top in the next step, which the user quickly finds is impossible, it’s too short.

I done this earlier today without the guide after it started to leak after descaling the machine , so i fixed it by taking valve apart an putting back together it worked once before leaking again , im just concerned it will just go again if i replace the safety valve , im wondering if scale has moved an is blocking and causing valve to leak? any ideas?

Great description! Is the water valve ever used to control brew pressure?

Thatcher Drake - Réponse

Great guide!, carefull the water valve has inside, two small orings, don´t loss it. Muy buena guia, hice todo lo indicado y funciono perfectamente, mi máquina comenzo a gotear agua por dentro y gracias a este manual pude encontrar la falla, que es la válvula, tengo con la maquina mas de 7 años y hasta ahora fallo, la válvula por ser de plastico no se puede reparar, pero se consiguen las partes en ereplacementparts.com. Solo un comentario la valvula tiene 2 orings pequeños, así que tengan cuidado cuando la saquen no se les pierdan.
