Press it again and descale light and cafe ground container flashes alternating between them. Press it again and engine start under effort and nothing happens. no water passes

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!

Try to turn the steam knob to off postion and the switch off and on again. If the light insist that means that the steam micro-switch which is activated by turning the knom is either stuck in on position or is faulty and need to be replaced.

It means a half of a full revolution (180 degrees), Not a half of a knob turn (90 degrees). 90 degree on the ESAM3300 doesnt do anything. Turn the knob a full 180 degrees to start the descaling

Tips for a great answer:
Insert steam spout and push OK.
Fill your tank and add descale solution.
Go to program settings - Descale.
Follow the prompts on the readout.
After descale and rise are complete refill your water tank.
Your system should now work as normal.
Note: If you do not have a descale solution, run the above with just water. Remember to descale when you obtain a descale solution.

Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my
expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling.
The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or
espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale
builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow,
reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from
working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full
order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time
intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your
water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two
main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your
Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you
descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can
use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If
you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less
often than if you make cappuccinos.
Descaling products are widely available from stores
that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product
you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific
use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and
make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water
and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products
or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case
your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet,
then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for
espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the
instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has
been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I
descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee.
