I have a DeLonghi ESAM5600 and I am having trouble removing the infuser to clean it. It seems to be stuck in the "up" position and even though I press the two red button inwards it will not come loose. Any suggestions please?

SOURCE: hello i have an Delonghi esam

I had this problem until I realised that you need to switch the machine off by pressing the on/off button on the front of the machine first *before* switching it off at the back and unplugging it. This moves the infuser unit further to the bottom and then allows you to take it out.

SOURCE: DeLonghi Magnifica always asks "Insert Infuser Assembly"

on my machine, the two screws that attach the infuser receptacle to the insides of the machine came loose. You can see those two stainless hex socket screws when you remove the infuser by grabbing its two red tabs and pulling it out. Just use a hex shaft
screwdriver (size 3mm or thereabout) to tighten them.

SOURCE: Have similar problem. Not heating up and no hot water available.

If there is no heat at all and these lights are showing, this could well be that the generator has blown (sometimes this will cause your home's circuit breaker/fuse to trip at the same time). It will probably need professional help! To repair this at an authorised service centre (June 2009) cost me $170 AUD for a replacement generator + labour (translates to about $135 USD).

Delonghi magnifica has exclamation


Switch the machine off, AND pull the plug, wait 5 minutes (to be sure) and turn it on. Then turn it off again, now the infuser should return to it's normal position where you can take it out.
If the descale button is still flashing, try descaling again. Was the procedure interupted before? That would be a reason the light keeps flashing.

Unable to remove infuser, no warning light, reset multiple times, brews coffee fine


You should go to test mode and try moving infuser up and down to position when you can take it out it needs some skill of timing. After that you need to disassemble infuser completely clean it up and lube with special food grade lube. Also there could be a problem with transmission kit that cause this problem.

Defuser unit stuck at bottom of Delonghi magnifica coffee machine. Squeezing red buttons does not help. Cannot remove


Recycling the power resets the position of the defuser. When you turn it off, make sure you do it via the button on the front before swutching it off at the power point.

Yesterday and today the machine did not come on as normal it said press next + change, nyesterday when I did that it said generic alarm, but then worked, today the generic alarm would not go off. the book...


I had the same problem with the infuser stuck at the top and the triangle light staying lit. I fixed it by unplugging it from the wall. I then removed the side panel and the back panel.

Facing the rear move the sprocket that the motor drives. The best way to start it (if it is stuck) is with a flat screen driver on the right side of the motor and push the sprocket towards the front. Once it starts you can either pull the belt from the other side or push it from the right side. It took 10 minutes to get the infuser to completely come down.

After that I pulled it out and cleaned everything. When I put everything back together the light stayed on and the machine would not respond. I did fix it by turning on the machine, pulled the power plug, and when I plugged it back in the system went through its cycle. Everything is fine now.

Can't remove infuser to clean it


Turning off the power with the button is not enough. Instead, to remove the infuser: unplug the machine, wait a few seconds, plug it in again and turn the machine on. Even though you are technically turning it on, the machine will sense it was not turned off in an ok way, so it will "properly" shut off (and unlock the infuser).

Delonghi magnifica coffee machine...infuser jammed in machine. Needs to come out for cleaning. Can depress red buttons but it wont come out..looks a but squint


Remove base plate and turn pulley clockwise (probably for several minutes) until infuser arm returns to vertical position and the infuser itself drops to the low position. You should here a click when it reaches this point. The infuser can then be removed as normal.

DeLonghi Magnifica always asks "Insert Infuser Assembly"


DeLonghi "Insert infuser assembly" error



Easy Fix - Delonghi Coffee machines which have built-in coffee grinders often suffer from a problem that produces an error, "Insert infuser assembly" that appears at random times.

The problem is usually caused by distortion of infuser lifting mechanism limit switch mounting (Orange colored plastic)!

The mounting is very close to the water heater so with heat and pressure from the infuser lifting mechanism the mounting gets bent over time. The switch mounting (Orange colored plastic) gets permanently distorted so the striker arm on the lifting assembly only just presses the micro switch button causing the error message "Insert infuser assembly".

To easily fix the problem on ESAM 5500 machines and should work on other similar machines:-


    1.Unplug the machine and remove the rear cover screws and remove.

    2.Slide out the two side covers.

    3.Remove the grinder lever screw in the top cover coffee bean compartment.

    4.Carefully lift the top cover pushing it slightly back so it does not stick under the front cover (you may have to loosen the 4 front cover screws on the side).

    5.The limit switch is clearly visible on the top (see photos).

    6.Wedge some insulated material (wood, plastic etc, I used bamboo) between the heater assembly and the switch mounting so the switch is in a VERTICAL position. The thickness of the packing is around 3-4mm (see photo).

    7.Re-assemble the machine and enjoy your coffee. JTS

Magnifico eam3200 series...centre piece jammed


I have a perfecta and found that the mechanism that translates the infused up and down was jammed. I unplugged it and removed the back panel - two phillips screws - then you will see the motor and cog belt -BE SURE UNPLUGGED - I then turned the motor shaft using my index finger against the cog belt and with the access door open I could see the infuser translate down to a park position. I took it through an entire cycle which actually retracted the infuser and actuated the coffee grind sweep arm - there is a horizontal feature that looks like a sideways 'L' that seems to be a reference for the park location - since when the top of the infuser was at this mark the infuser unit could be removed and the infuser was in the compact configuration as described in the user manual. I am getting a general alarm still and would like to know if anyone could point me to an electrical schematic and functional sequence block diagram.
