Delonghi Magnifica Makes creaking noise when preparing brew unit

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.

    Timbo984 is correct, but I would add a caution. Don't over lubricate the vertical drive screw. Apply the lube very sparingly, as drive screw friction will increase with too much lube. Also, a lot of the noise is probably caused by the motion of the holder against the adjacent surface. When you remove the holder, clean it well, and also clean the adjacent surface. You will find that residue has built up behind the holder.

    timbo984's answer worked perfectly for me. I used a variant on the lubricant linked above which was in a tube, not an aerosol, and used a pastry brush to apply it to the screw. Instead of screeching, my 6 year old Delonghi now purrs like a cat ??

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: Delonghi Magnifica Makes creaking noise when prepa - 10_29_2011_5_16_45_am.png

When i turn on my delonghi magnifica pronto on its says insert brewing unit but its already in plus it makes a really loud noise when i turn it on


Sounds like the brewing unit, or infuser, has not been properly seated into its holder. Are you sure that the two red retainer fittings are in their snapped out positions? See page 16 of your owner's manual.
If the infuser has not been properly seated it could cause a loud noise when the servo drive tries to raise the unit into its brewing position.

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.

That is the reason the old owners gave it to you . You have to change the circuit board for it and it is as expensive as a new unit plus the labour and shipping .

The machine makes a very loud noise when grinding the coffee beans. * Magnifica Espresson Machine *


Even a properly operating super automatic DeLonghi espresso machine makes enough coffee grinder noise to scare your pets and wake you next door neighbors. It's LOUD, no doubt about it. Only if your grinder makes more noise than that do you have a problem.

There are two reasons for this usually. Either the grinder is jammed or the grinding wheel or wheels have broken. Your machine needs to go to a repair shop to be looked at.

Delonghi Magnifica "insert brewing unit"


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
