Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine
My Magnifica is still working fine. It just makes this creaking sound, like it needs some kind of lubrication. I opened the case and looked inside but haven't delved further into the machine. It started making this sound a few months ago, am not sure what it is or whether I should be concerned about it.
The unit is clean and still prepares coffee fine. I am wondering what to do.
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.

The mechanical parts are not properly tight, because of the vibration this will cause loosening to the mechanical parts (erg.screws).

Hi, Is your creaking sound like a one time sharp cracking sound, like something snapping, during the start and end of the brew cycle? I'm hearing that on mine too.
Also is the white strain mark on the brew unit normal? Picture:
