ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans

SOURCE: Delonghi EAM 3400 keeps saying "Empty Grounds Container"

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.

Have you tried to push the microswitch in the grounds container slow?
You should try to clean the contact with a q-tip!

I am house sitting and do not know where Delonghi Perfecta Cap. machine's grounds container is located? indicator says to empty now...


Hello, Jean -

Delonghi makes a number of different cappuccino machines. If you had stated the model number of the machine, I probably could have found you the manual for the homeowner's machine online.

I found a user's manual for the Delonghi ESAM5500. The manual has an illustration which shows where the grounds container for that machine is located. If the homeowner's cappuccino machine is not an ESAM5500, the grounds container for their machine may be in a similar location.

This is the link to the user manual for the Delonghi ESAM5500:
http://kavegepbolt.hu/shop_ordered/9160/pic/Saeco/DELONGHIESAM5500.pdf
It is a PDF document, so you will need Adobe Reader software (free).

Page 17 of the manual talks about how to clean the machine, including cleaning the grounds container. In the instructions part A9 (which is illustrated on Page 3 of the manual) is identified as the grounds container.

Just to be sure, if you can contact the homeowners, do so and ask them where the manual for their cappuccino machine manual is located, so you can refer to it and so that you do not accidentally damage the machine.

Best wishes.

Empty ground container issue


Once you have the drip tray out and the grounds container out - look inside the unit and clean any grounds that are still in there. Look for a switch that might be sticking (because it's cover with coffee residue) clean everything and check for freedom of movement.

Delonghi problems


More than likely the grinder is either not grinding at all or there is a blockage preventing the grounds reaching the brew chamber.

Is it possible to remove the beans from the DeLonghi Gran Dama?


I actually did this to my old machine because I was selling it. There are two ways to do this. Unplug the machine and remove the water canister. You can then gently tip the machine over a container or paper to catch the beans when the fall out of the machine.

The other option is to vacuum them out with the long crevice attachment for your vacuum.

Both work.

Delonghi gran dama display light out


This is a common problem fixed by replacing the control board. The part number is 5213214851 and costs around $135. It is a rather easy fix for someone who can take things apart and put them back together using basic tools.

Or, sending it to a reputable shop will cost about $40 for shipping each way, plus around 1.5 hours of labor, and maybe a small markup on ordering the part for you.

Delonghi Magnifica Light B12 in manual states that


I had a problem where the machine would not operate and the water and grounds lights were on steady (red). After contacting customer support, they directed me to do a reset. This is done by disconnecting the power and holding down the ground coffee and decalcification buttons while reconnecting power. Then release the buttons and power on the unit. This revived my Magnifica from the dead, maybe it will work for you...

Red Light 28 is flashing even when dregs are emptied


Check the edge of the container that goes in to the machine there is a small part that sticks out, it is possible that that piece is not touching the microswitch in the machine. Remove the drain tray and the dregs tray, check the corners of the machine for loose coffee grounds.
