Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

With plenty of water in the reservoir the empty reservoir light flashes and the pump shuts down.

If we switch between pumping water and frothing it resets but sometimes will go right back to flashing less than a minute later. It also does it when making espresso.

    My 4400 model had the same problem and I searched the web. Few users commented is the magnetic in the water tank that is failing. I ordered a new water tank from ereplacementparts.com for $22, problem SOLVED!!!

Ive been researching a solution for mine, the whole tank empties s water and fills resevoir under cup. however, ive come across ur solution and ill share it cuz i bet ur going as crazy as me trying to find out what to do. so my understanding is that the black square floater thingy tiggers a magnet (im assuming behind the plastic in the machine (so if the magnet could go threw walls it would go: the black floaty, clear plastic water tank, plastic housing main machine then the magnet).somehow ur magnet is dead. 2 solutions i read:1. recharge ur magnet. stick another mag. on there awhile ( there meaning the black floaty i guess)2. permently stick, glue, tape, what ever a magnet on the inside one . but this way ur machine will always think the tank is full.so just remember its not. this info is only what i read, it made sense to me so i thought id share it with ugood luck:) sorry cant remember the url

SOURCE: EAM3500S will not froth milk ?

First, check to see if it will pump out steam without a ton of water. If it doesn't, don't use it.

Now, skim milk is terrible for it, the bubbles are too dry and flavorless. Use 2% milk or half-and-half. It should be cold (very cold). I put mine in the freezer in a steel frothing container for 5-10 minutes before use. Just barely submerge the wand (about .25") and turn on the pressure. It should sound like tearing paper (not like blowing bubbles through a straw). Do this until volume increases to around double (if you have a frothing thermometer, it should be around 100 degrees F). Now submerge the wand farther and tilt the cup to create swirling (this is called stretching & sweetens the milk). This should be done until the temperature is around 140-160 degrees F. Done.

If your machine is no good for steam, there's another way: Put milk into a steel cooking pot (I use a saucier for large groups) and put it in the freezer. When very cold (ice forming) put on stove. Whisk briskly while heating up on medium-high. It will create fine foam & stretch the milk at the same time. The bubbles will start big, but become finer as time goes by. I test by stocking my finger in & going until it feels nearly scalding & remove from heat. Just use a ladle for he milk & a spoon for the foam.

SOURCE: No water ever makes it through the pump

I just got mine working again. There was scale in the outlet port for the coffee basket.
Try cleaning by running through a solution of CLR and water (1 to 4 parts) and keep running until the blockage dissolves and flow is restored. Then run another solution again just to clean it for good.

MAKE SURE TO RINSE OUT THE RESERVIOUR VERY WELL. Should run clear without foam after about a gallon of clean water.

SOURCE: We understand that your problem

Based on the information provided above the machine is a bit old as 3 years of regular use is quite a while. If the frothing wand is the only part of the machine which leaks water it can be presumed that a replacement of the part is in order.
It will be advicable if you can afford a new machine to get a new one otherwise get an expert to replace the frothing wand and run a general service of the entire machine.
Water leakages around electrical appliances are very dangerous and the consequences are always disastrous. So ensure that either the device is handled by an expert or replace the unit completely.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

SOURCE: EAM3500S will not froth milk ?

Here's what I did... with great success:
If you've cleaned all the milk deposits from around the o rings and you still have a problem then its almost certainly the milk spout (the little pipe that directs foamy milk into your cup)

Detatch the spout and get a 2.5 mm drill bit and use it to clean all the milk deposits out of the part that plugs into the lid. Rinse through with water to clean away all the bits of hard milk.

[If you put water through the spout before and after, you will notice a dramatic difference]

Doing this completely fixed the problem for me (I had about 3 years of milk build up in mine!).

I have a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1515-Z2-EBK3 that is being used to pump water through 2-4x8 solar water heater panels. The pump intake is 1 1/2 inch, discharge out is also 1 1/2 inch. The pump is located...


I have a 3/4 hp hayward pumping thru solar panels, too. 1-1/2 discharge thru 50 ft of 2inch pipe, up 12 ft then thru (4) 4x12 panels. Mine is on 115 volts ac.
You have plenty of pump and when you run a pump with low flow, amperage is low. You are not tripping your breakers, it sounds like the pump is overheating. Is it hot to the touch when it shuts down?
Do you have an ammeter so you could check your amps?
What size wire is running the 60 ft to the pump?

I don't have any other ideas to share.

I have a hotpoint drayer, it wont start red light flashing and the watewr tank is empty.


You might find that the small channel at the back of the condenser is blocked with lint, preventing the water from reaching the pump. Remove the condenser, take off the pump unit at back, it just snaps off. fill the pump reservoir and tilt the machine forward to verify if the channel is blocked, the water wont run out if it is, if needed just unblock the channel. If it isn't blocked then it might be your pump is not working or blocked.

The water reservoir no longer being emptied by the pump.


I have the same exact problem suddenly. Unit is only 11 months old and not used that often. Bucket fills up and unit will switch to fan only. Drain hose (small black one) is not clogged but bucket keeps filling up. Never had to empty the bucket until yesterday, now I did it four times in one day (so far). Did you ever find a fix?

The Home Cafe machine will not pump water


It's dirty or has scale / deposits. Use a paper towel to draw out as much water as you can from the "hole that leads into the machine" - then fill it with clear, distilled vinegar and let that sit for about 15 minutes. Fill the resevoir with a vinegar / water mixture. After the 15 minutes, run the vinegar solution through until the resevoir is empty.

After you do that, you will have to run several tanks of water through, to get the taste / smell of vinegar out, but the machine will work fine again.

HOTPOINT AQUARIUS CONDENSER TUMBLE DRYER CTD40


There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.

There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.

So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.

Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.

Hopefully this helps. GB

Hotpoint aquarius CTD00 dryer won't heat


I have just had a similar problem and fixed it today.
The "Empty Water" light was staying on and no heat was given out to dry the load.
I found it to be the float switch in the condenser unit at the back left. It had stuck with fluff and debris. I cleaned out the condenser reservoir and the polystrene float and now all is well.
To get to this unit you must first,
Take of the top and the left hand side panel.
Locate the 2 locking tabs that hold the top half of the condenser onto the back panel and release this part.
Remove this by releasing 2 further tabs that hold it to it's bottom half,
and you will see the float switch assembly on the left hand side.
Clean out the condenser reservoir of any water and aslo clean the polystyrene float, it needs to be free to slide up and down between the plastic guides.
Hope this helps.

I have had this machine for four years now, and it is FAB!!! it does have an extra step to it- after you put in coffee and add water to the reservoir, you DO need to prime the pump. So here's what you have to do:

-Fill the reservoir with MORE water then you think you will need, fill the coffee filter with the standard amount of finely ground bean.
-Turn the machine to "on," making sure the "steam" switch and valve (knob) are off.
-Wait till the green "ready" light comes on, then put an empty cup under the steam wand and turn the valve on (the steam switch is still in the off position). Hot water will come out of the steam wand, allow it to flow until the "ready" light blinks off. Discard this.
-close the steam valve, stopping the flow of water.
-turn the "steam" switch into the on position, wait for ready light to come on again.
-put your milk container under the steam wand and froth to your heart's content (this machine makes GREAT frothed milk and you should use a large enough milk container to allow for that! *smile*)
-when you have finished with the frothing, close the valve and flick the "steam" switch back into the off position. You are now ready to make your espresso.
-push either of the two buttons, ie one or two cups, and the espresso will start to flow. There is a way to set the length of time for each of the two buttons, but I have had mine set perfectly for so long i don't know how to do it any more. Sorry!

This has been the best machine I've ever used, and has lasted me for years. I heartily recommend it!
