    I have the same problem with the ESAM3500. Turning it off didn't help. I've contacted customer support.

    This happened to me with my Magnifico ESAM3300 - what worked was to forget about the drip tray, just put the container in that holds the used coffee grinds, shut the door, and turn the machine on. It should reset the infuser and release it all the way down so you can then try the red tabs again and pull it firmly out. I did that, cleaned it all out, put it back in and my machine is working excellent. Mine is 3 1/2 yrs old and never had maintenance, I use it everyday, but clean it about every 2 weeks inside and out. I just saved myself a big repair bill.

    This just happened to me. What you can try, is to forget the drip tray, just put the used coffee grinds container back in, shut the door, and turn the machine on. Then it will reset the infuser, and release it all the way down so you can then remove it. Make sure you clean everything in that area really good before putting the infuser back in. Then you should be good to go. My ESAM3300 is 3 1/2 years old. I use it everyday, and just clean it about every 2 weeks. I just saved myself a huge repair bill.

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.

Our machine had a "Generic Alarm" on the display. When I opened the unit I was surprised to see that the infuser unit was gone. I thought "Who would steal our infuser unit??" I was relieved to find that it was still there but was stuck up in the housing. Apparently this is the operating position and the infuser lowers itself to the lower position so you can take it out and clean it.

I went to www.delonghi.com and send an email to their Customer Service Dept. It got returned as undeliverable, so I called the phone # for their superautomatic coffeemakers. The lady was very friendly and we tried a few different solutions but unfortunately none of them worked. They're sending me a box & packing supplies and I'll be shipping it to an appliance store in NY to have it fixed.

You must make sure that the brew unit is ready to reinsert into the machine. To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this, look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. Now you can push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel. If not, locate the slide on the left side of the brew unit, (it should be hanging down, a flat rectangular piece attached to the cylinder) and push the slide to the right until it does. Push the press button and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine. First you must close the door with the drip tray and dredge drawer inserted and turn on the machine without having the brew group in. You will hear the motor turn on and when it stops completely, open the door and remove the tray, and dredge drawer, now replace the tray and insert the brew group. If it still won't go in check the cog in the back of the machine. There are 2 wide teeth that should be at the 10:00 and 12:00 position. If they are at a different position you have a broken drive gear.

Hi
Remove the dredge drawer. Open the door. On the left side of the brewing unit, and towards the back of the brew group, there is a single screw. Remove the screw. Grab the handle and pull carefully, but firmly with a quick ****. The brew group should come out. There is a piece that remains in the machine. Slide that piece down and to the right and it will come off. Insert the piece into the hole on the backside of the brew group with the clip up. Tighten the screw and move brew group back into position.

Hi
I have seen some of these machines with over 40,000 coffees in the display, but they do need a little care. One is the brew group. Cleaning is good but not as often as a lot of people do. I clean and lube mine about every 3,000 coffees (I have a display) Lubrication is necessary but only in 3 places. Do not lube the tracks, that just attracts coffee grounds and that can damage the brew drive when they pack into the tracks at the top by the brew head. It prevents the brew unit from cycling all the way through, and it busts the drive gears, and I think that is what is wrong with your machine. It can be fixed. Places to lube with food grade not food based lubricant.
Put some lube on a Q tip and lube.
  1. The big Orange O-ring on the brew head
  2. The receiver on the back side of the brew unit. Lube inside top to bottom. (it looks like the end of a smoking pipe)
  3. On the bottom of the brew unit there is a rod in the center with a wish bone going through the end. Lube the rod towards the center of the brew unit all the way around.

Magic deluxe does not have enough power


Hi
There are a couple of things you can check. Make sure that the dosing lever is not all the way to full charge. 1 click back from full is the best for strong drinks. Make sure that the grind is not too coarse as this takes up more space and is hard to compress. Check the brew units guides inside the sides of the brew unit. They can be clogged with coffee especially at the top by the brew head. Use a Q tip and clean the guides, they don't need to be lubed. And last the brew unit needs to be lubricated where the O-rings and seals are but only there. The big O-ring on the brew head. Inside the receiver tube on the back side of the brew unit (lube inside the piece top to bottom. And finally turn the brew unit upside down.
There is a rd with a wishbone looking thing in the end of the rod. Lube the rod towards the center of the brew unit. This will lube the seal in the brew chamber. Try these suggestions and see if they don't help?

It say brew unit missing


The brew unit missing switch is inside the slot at top back wall where the top of the brew unit puts an angled piece of plastic into the slot. The piece is a slope like a nose so it gently pushes the switch as you instert the brew unit. See if the brew unit reaches this slot on the wall. If it doesn't the brew unit most likely jammed up and was removed while the gears were not in home position. Now the gears are not allowing the brew unit to return fully inserted.

If you're handy you can call Miele tech support and request they walk you through steps to diagnose this. They will discover if the gear is out of home position or not. If it is not and the switch is in contact with the brew unit you may be in luck, the swith is cheap. But if the electronics no longer reads the switch signal it's 800 bucks to replace. Good luck!

You have got the gears out of alignment. You don't really want to take out brew group unless at end of cycle. You can fool machine to get brew group back in.
Here is how :

BREW GROUP REMOVAL AND DRIVE GEARS ADJUSTMENT
FOR AUTOMATIC MACHINES
If you ever find yourself in need of removing a Brew Group that has jammed. This will assist you in doing so correctly.

To fix this problem follow these simple steps:
You will need a #1 Philips screwdriver

1.) First, open the door on the machine and remove the drip tray and dredge drawer

2.) Locate the nickel size hole in the brew group. It will have an "N" next to it. At the 9 o'clock position, you will see another hole about 1/3 of the size of the first. Directly behind this hole, or about an inch up depending on the position the machine was stopped in you will see a single philips head screw. You may have to look around the side of the brew group to locate the screw as it is not always visible from the smaller hole. Remove this screw; it holds a small coupling water inlet (it is similar looking to a tobacco pipe) to the brew group.

3.) Remove the brew group by pressing/pushing (depending on your machine) on the part that says “Press" or "Push”. Pull firmly and straight out. Be cautious to not break the brew unit. Also be aware of the door of your machine as it can break as well.

4.) With the brew group out, remove the small coupling water inlet (tobacco pipe) that is probably still stuck to your machine and reinstall it in the brew group as it was before. Make sure the screw is installed snugly but not too tight.

5.) Turn the brew group around so you are facing the back. Now imagine what a check mark looks like, the top we will call position A (longer part of the checkmark) and where the checkmark ends (the smaller portion) is point B. You will notice what looks like a large checkmark where the coupling water inlet is located. The water coupling can slide up and down in this checkmark opening. The water coupling should be in the B position.

REINSTALLING THE BREW GROUP
To do this, the gears will have to be reset to the start position. In order to do so, you will have to bypass the three micro-switches (Brew Group, Dump Box and the Door switch).
Bypassing the micro switches:

1.) Looking at the back-side of the brew group, not the side that says "Push" or "Press," you will notice something fin-like or nose shaped. This piece fits into a keyhole or coin slot looking slot in the machine and that is where the brew unit micro-switch is located. Take something like an index card, envelope, or folded up piece of paper, and insert it into that keyhole so that it will trick the machine into thinking that the brew unit is installed. Start the piece of paper at the top of the slot and slide it to the bottom of the slot. The paper should be thick enough so you can let go and it will remain in place. Leave this object in there until the following steps are complete.

2.) WITHOUT putting the brew group back into the machine, reinstall the drip-tray and dredge drawer and close the door.

3.) After doing so you can then turn the machine ON. At this time the gears will begin moving until they return to the correct start position. At this point remove the object from the keyhole position and you can now reinstall the brew group. If the brew group does not go back in correctly, try a few more times. The machine will return to its home position. Note: The two large spokes of The brew drive shaft should in the Up position

At times, the gears in the brew drive assembly will not complete the cycle to the proper
start position for different reasons. Some of the reasons are:
• Brew group jammed or blocked
• Either one of the micro switches in the brew drive have gone bad.
• Brew drive motor Failure.
• Broken teeth on either of the brew drive gears.
• Dirty brew group, covered by coffee grinds.
• Brew group or gears not lubricated.
• Connections to the board from brew drive assy., or motor have gone bad.
A jammed or blocked brew group happens when the brew group starts the cycle but doesn’t finish it.

Brewing System stuck


Hi, I think this is something I encountered once. Try this:
1. Shut the service door
2. unplug the machine, wait for any of the shut down noises to stop
3. plug the machine back in, wait for any noises to stop
4. check to see if everything is back in order

The most important thing is to keep the service door shut, and all the parts, ground basket, drip tray etc. in place. The mechanical will only operate with these things in place.

Hope this helps.
