Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine
I cant get it to change from saying "Empty Grounds Container." I have emptied the container and then put it back into the machine but regardless of what I do, it just keeps saying to empty it.
Is there anyway to get rid of this? Is there something that I need to clean besides the container? Is there anyway of resetting the machine?
I think the microswitch that sensors the front door is not activated. Try to find it and "give it a massage" The machine resets the counter for the grounds container every time the door switch is activated.

There is no microswitch in the front door of the DeLonghi 3400 and there is no microswitch that is touched by the little plastic piece on the bottom tray. The microswitch is at the back of the grounds container. The other answers were helpful in getting me to look in the right place but the only microswitch was where the plastic tab at the back of the grounds container go through a hole in the back.
I took the bottom off (good luck in finding a screwdriver or bit to remove the screws) unplugged the microswitch and cleaned it up and it worked for a while. I'm ordering the $8 microswitch and hoping everything works with no problems.

The water tray sensor microswitch was stuck. Therefore the machine thought you had never removed the tray to empty ground. To fix:
