SOURCE: no hot water or steam

Well, I have little exposure to Saeco, but a lot to commercial coffee machines.
Saeco have a lot of custom made components, although these can be purchased, nothing is cheap! Neither is their repair service!
First, is the boiler heating?? If so:
No hot water/ no steam suggests a blockage. Assuming you can hear the pump working when attempting to do a coffee, you will probably find the water flowing back into the water tank via the relief valve. Of course, this valve itself could be the problem, or the pump failing to work through a blocked inlet filter or other problem.
Look now at the group head. Ever cleaned it? The filter and spray block should be removable, do so and clean them carefully. While you have them out, see whether water reaches the head by "making a coffee" into a cup placed under the head. BE CAREFUL OF SCALDING. If water now flows, cleaning the screen and spray block should restore operation.
Beyond that, it's inside the machine! There is a 3- way valve that operates when making a coffee. This can become clogged with coffee. There is another valve to open the steam.
If, like Saecos I have worked on, the boiler does both the hot water and the steam one at a time, look for problems BEFORE the boiler.
Hoe this helps a little....

SOURCE: steamed milk

I just had this same problem and solved it.  It was due to a very small amount of milk residue on the inside of the black frothing unit (the one with the dial which lets you choose foam or no foam).  Grip the dial firmly and pull it out while twisting. It may take a few seconds to twist and pull it out.  I had a very small spec of milk residue in one of the crevices on this piece.  Quick clean with a toothpick and plenty of hot water, reassembled, and it works perfectly.  Hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: Coffee maker makes cream curdle

Run two or three reservoirs full of plain water through the machine to rinse out the descaler, which is acidic.

Acid curdles milk.

SOURCE: I have a Delonghi Magnifica

I purchased a unit second hand for my wife's birthday today. It's only 4 months old, got it home, tested it, same problem... No froth!

I've read all the posts here and all were very helpful troubleshooting guides however they did not solve the issue.

Understanding how the frothing mechanism functions is half the battle in figuring out the solution. It's a simple vacuum type system. No doubt you've read about checking the orings. This is definately the first thing to check however if this is not the reason then consider the following.

The larger of the white tubes that has the red and black oring inserts deep into its port on the tap. Why? It pushes steam past the milk pipe directly into the chrome frothing tube which causes a vacuum essentially drawing milk up it's hose creating the froth. What you can't see without further investigation is that on the underside of the tube centered between the red and black orings is a small hole. This hole is responsible for drawing the milk upwards. If this is blocked, and it probably is then no milk and no froth. Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath.

So in conclusion. Any air leak between the red and black orings will prevent the vacuum required to draw milk up the tube and alternatively any blockage of the milk channel will also obviously prevent the flow into the frothing mechanism. Hope this helps.

My Delonghi Magnifica 3400 is making weak espresso. Is it the diffuser?


Have a look how much coffee is actually thrown in by the machine. You can take a flash light and look down the ground coffee funnel, when the machine is grinding. Or after making a cup of espresso, look in the tray how much coffee it dumped in there. I don't think the infuser is the problem. I expect there's a problem with the grinder...

No water is flowing from hot water spout or to coffee spout. Machine has been descaled when asked and infuser regularly cleaned.

Infuser jammed in ESAM 5600 cannot get it out


Obvious question really, but is the power turned off? You cannot get the infuser out if the power is on. Or has it been reinserted recently, and incorrectly? The only time I have known of issues getting them out is if the power is on, or if the power went out when it was not parked, in which case turn the power back on it, let it go through the warm up cycle, then turn it off again, let it shut down, then remove the infuser

Esam 6700 coffee granuales go everywhere


Hi guys, This issue has been winding me up for ages. I've had the machine serviced by Kenwood Delonghi and after about 8 months the problem reoccurs. I think I've sorted it now though.
If you remove the infuser and push on the metal disc it will go down in to the camber / Cylinder, this can be quite hard at first but this is why the problem occurs, the slide doesn't' go up and down the camber/cylinder.

What I do now is soak the whole infuser in soapy water for 10 minutes and then move the infuser up and down in the cylinder (this can be a little hard at first but it frees up as it gets clean) then clean and dry it all off. Then if you use a bit of lubricant, you can buy this but I just used frylite and then moved the piston in the cylinder up and down to free it up. You will see all of the coffee build up start to come out. Keep cleaning and moving it under the water and it cleans it out properly. Using the frylite acts as a food safe lubricant to facilitate this movement. Keep it moving until it moves up and down freely. Once you are confident that the piston can move up and down freely, reinstall and get the machine turned back on and hey presto. Nice coffee, no mess inside the machine and more importantly, no grounds in the bottom of your coffee 8-)

Delonghi coffee machine making an aweful noise,


Hi. Husband asks: When you first turn the machine on at the power point, does it make a motor sound and then stop, or is the awful noise apparent at that time.

If the awful noise starts as soon as you turn it on, then most likely there is a motor problem which will need to be seen by a Service Center.

DeLonghi Magnifica always asks "Insert Infuser Assembly"


DeLonghi "Insert infuser assembly" error



Easy Fix - Delonghi Coffee machines which have built-in coffee grinders often suffer from a problem that produces an error, "Insert infuser assembly" that appears at random times.

The problem is usually caused by distortion of infuser lifting mechanism limit switch mounting (Orange colored plastic)!

The mounting is very close to the water heater so with heat and pressure from the infuser lifting mechanism the mounting gets bent over time. The switch mounting (Orange colored plastic) gets permanently distorted so the striker arm on the lifting assembly only just presses the micro switch button causing the error message "Insert infuser assembly".

To easily fix the problem on ESAM 5500 machines and should work on other similar machines:-


    1.Unplug the machine and remove the rear cover screws and remove.

    2.Slide out the two side covers.

    3.Remove the grinder lever screw in the top cover coffee bean compartment.

    4.Carefully lift the top cover pushing it slightly back so it does not stick under the front cover (you may have to loosen the 4 front cover screws on the side).

    5.The limit switch is clearly visible on the top (see photos).

    6.Wedge some insulated material (wood, plastic etc, I used bamboo) between the heater assembly and the switch mounting so the switch is in a VERTICAL position. The thickness of the packing is around 3-4mm (see photo).

    7.Re-assemble the machine and enjoy your coffee. JTS
