Hi. My delonghi 3500 coffee machine is not able to froth milk. There is no water coming out of the hose. All water ending in the tray instead. Pushing hot water button the machine starts with a pumpin


I have a similar unit. One problem I had was a clogged solenoid for the frother. The solenoid is toward the front of my unit, connected to the frother by a hose. As I recall, I applied power to the solenoid and it did nothing. I figured it was clogged with minerals from hard water so I removed the solenoid from the machine, soaked it in vinegar, and tapped it a bunch of times to try loosen things up. Eventually, I could hear it engage when I applied power to it. I reinstalled it and the frother was working again.

Please note that the solenoids and pump inside the machine operate at full line voltage (e.g. 120VAC). Line voltage can hurt or even kill a person so you need to know what you're doing to work with it.

My Delonghi Magnifica (manual not digital) won't start the grinder, could this be the circuit board?


Delonghi Magnifica comes up with waste tray full light when there is nothing in the tray. It doesn't make coffee, the grinder is rotating and appears to be clear. Could there be a blockage below the grinder, if so how do I access it.

Delonghi EAM3400 water ends up in tray will not come out of spout


i had this problem, and have now finally figured it out and fixed it. the problem is that there is a solenoid valve sticking. i believe that the valve is used to relieve pressure after using the steam, and it vents the hot water directly to the tray. if you aren't diligent about descaling, or if there are water impurities, or if you use the machine infrequently, or for probably any number of other reasons, the valve can gum up and stick in the "open" position, continuously draining the water directly to the tray.

one easy way i've got my machine to work was to cycle steam on and off a few times, thereby signaling the valve to open/close, and unsticking the valve. you can see if it worked without wasting coffee by initiating a rinse cycle, and seeing if the water correctly comes out of the coffee nozzles.

if that doesn't work, you can disassemble the machine and tap on the valve. it has a square black solenoid ~1" square on top of a brass valve. it is mounted on the same bracket as the u-shaped heater. a few sharp raps on top may free up the valve.

if that doesn't work, remove the valve, and try to blow through it. if the valve is stuck open, air will go right through. hold the valve upright and tap it onto a hard surface (countertop, floor, etc.) try blowing through it again. when the valve is unstuck (and held in its normal operating position), you will not be able to blow through it.

once the valve is unstuck, run your machine through a descale process. that should take care of it.

No coffee will dispenses


I would remove the coffee spout and check the lines into it. The coffee seems to stop when it hits the spout and goes through the by pass instead. Remove the spout(be careful) then run a coffee and see if it works.

Coffee not coming out of the front taps, coffee & waste beans both ending up in the waste tray, can you please advise thankyou. model type 889


I had the same problem. The pipe that delivers the coffee brew is plugged, therefore, the brew leaks back in the waste tray. You need to take the top cover only. Then you will see a silicone hose. You need to pull the hose out of the head pipe. You can remove easily the head pipe as it snaps on the pipe that delivers the brew. What I did was to run the descaling program. Then inserted a thin stiff wire during the cleaning process and gently pushed the wire a few times to remove the obstruction. You have to be careful. Once the obstruction is cleared steam or liquid will come out of the pipe with some pressure. Then stop the cycle and run it again once the head pipe and top cover are replaced. Although there are no electrical wires visible when you take the top cover you need to be careful and wear rubber gloves and goggles. This worked for me and it was probably due that the machine was not used for sometime and the coffe brew plugged the delivery pipe. Good luck

No coffee is dispenced


Ok, If you pull out the waste water tray and bean tray, along with the brew unit ( by pushing the lever that says push) turn the brew unit upside down and you will see a layer of waste coffee grinds on a circular metal plate, just rinse it under a cold tap, dry it off and reassemble
Also you may want to try rinsing other parts of the brew unit and give it a general clean if there are any other build-ups of coffee grinds :)

Leaks at the hot water spout during coffee brew


I had the same problem. I ended up taking the coffee machine apart and found that the reason coffee trickles out around the hot water spout is that the two coffee nozzles were partially plugged. Since I Had parts of the coffee machine apart I was able to clean it easily. It may also be possible to clean the assembly using a pick of some sort and clean out the holes of the two normal coffee spouts. Inside it is just a open cavity so gentle poking around and using some steaming hot water may do the trick.
If you want to take the machine apart you need to do the following: 1) take of the warmer plate on the top - 2 storz screws but an allen key works as well 2) take off the top plate of the machine - another 4 or 5 screws - make sure you empty the beans first otherwise you will have a mess 3) remove one screw from the right hand side of the removable coffee ground tray. Once this screw is removed the front panel is free to swing open except for the pipes connecting the front 4) unclip the steam assembly - there are a couple of plastic catches on the top. this will free the steam assembly from the front panel and also free a pipe connections. The steam dispenser pipe will also come free from the steam assembly. 5) remove the coffee pipes from the up and down sliding coffee dispenser. This is a small whitish color clip with 2 pipes connecting into it. The white clip has a little plastic catch on the top that frees it. The front panel should now swing open freely. 6) remove the sliding coffee dispenser from the front door. There are 4 plastic catches, 2 on either side. the whole front sliding coffee displenser now comes free 7) Take the sliding dispenser apart by release the 4 plastic catches on the front curved planel. 8) Inside the sliding dispenser is a white plastic piece that connected to the piping released in step 5. There is a small plastic catch that needs to be pressed while pulling fairly hard on the plastic piece and bending the whole piece. 9) You will now see the plugged spouts. It goes back together really easily.
