These machines do need to be lubricated every so often. First, buy some food safe lubricant, e.g. here. Then, turn the machine off, open the front door, and remove the infuser. There is a holder connected to the machine by two hex screws. You may remove this (or even just leave it on). Now attach a long tube to the lubricant (should come with the can) and spray lubricant on both sides of the vertical screw that moves the infuser up and down. Give it a few good sprays on both sides of the screw, up and down, and that should solve your problem.

I had this problem too. The instruction manual says to turn the steam knob only half way counter-clockwise after pressing the button for 5 seconds, but you need to turn it ALL the way to have the procedure start (at least, that was the solution with my machine). Good luck!

I just figured this out on my machine, I should have taken pictures but i didnt :( this problem seams to pop up whent the elevator that moves the brewing unit up and down gets its starting position mis aligned, since the machine does not have sensors to re adjust the alignment the motor will pull the elevater down even if it cant go further and that seams to cause the nasty noise we were hearing.
1. unplug machine
2. remove the side and back covers
3. remove tray and brewing unit from inside (2 red buttens you press together)
4. remove the bracket that holds the brewing unit (2 hex screws)
5. below the brewing unit bracket is one more screw, it holds the motor unit and elevator on the back of machine, remove this screw.
6. on the back pull out the motor unit with elevator.
7. realign elevator starting position by turning the bottom wheel that is connected to motor via belt, it might feel a bit stuck first as motor has ower tightened the elevator.
The back of the elevator looks like a step ladder with screw going up the middle, for me it worked best to align the bottom of the traveling bracket with the bottom step on the ladder i recomend trying that position and then adjusting if nessesary.
8. reasemble the machine and continue to enjoy exelent coffie

My Delonghi Magnifica door was popping open too when the machine would cycle on or off. I found that the shoot on the inside of the door was stuck. This chute is spring loaded. The chute guides the coffee from the diffuser to the dispenser ports. I think it must have been coffee build up on the back side of the chute making it stick. So when the diffuser passed by during cycling the chute would not move out of the way. This makes the door pop open. I cleaned the chute so that it moves freely and no more trouble.
