Question about DeLonghi ESAM3300 Magnifica Super-Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine

1 Answer

Unable to remove infuser, no warning light, reset multiple times, brews coffee fine

The Delonghi ESAM3300 makes a screeching noise when turning the machine on, after coffee has brewed and when turning the machine off. I am unable to remove the infuser, despite multiple resets. It's totally stuck. I've searched and searched for instructions to remove it manually, to no avail. Anyone know how to do this? On a side note, our water is very hard so I descale the machine monthly. Thanks so much!

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.

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.

Defuser unit stuck at bottom of Delonghi magnifica coffee machine. Squeezing red buttons does not help. Cannot remove


Recycling the power resets the position of the defuser. When you turn it off, make sure you do it via the button on the front before swutching it off at the power point.

'less coffee' error message


The infuser assembly can only be removed with the machine turned off. The infuser needs to be removed and cleaned at least monthly; more often if you use your DeLonghi at lot.

Can't remove infuser to clean it


Turning off the power with the button is not enough. Instead, to remove the infuser: unplug the machine, wait a few seconds, plug it in again and turn the machine on. Even though you are technically turning it on, the machine will sense it was not turned off in an ok way, so it will "properly" shut off (and unlock the infuser).

Delonghi Magnifica Makes creaking noise when preparing brew unit


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.

No water light on new delonghi magnifica


I had the same problem.
As the machine is brand new, try washing the infuser under the hot water tap and then dry it. I then made a 2 cup long coffee and the red no water light stayed off.
