Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine
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.
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.

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?

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!).
