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...

Why is "Drip Tray not fitted" message on screen?


If you cannot insert the drip tray as you have said above then the machine needs for you to find a way to insert the tray then the message should go. If the tray has an extra bucket on it for spent grounds then try removing that and just fitting the tray alone.

Hi,

I donot see any error here. Can you reset the spring in the infuser once again. The process of cleaning that you have mentioned is correct or you can follow the steps mentioned bellow :

Please double check whether the cleaning was properly done. Whenever the machine tells you to clean it, which requires you to

- Mobile steam wand while
- opened the door
- the drip tray and trash along
- Dump Truck and clean all the drip tray and waste
- re-assembly

Thanks

The brew group does not seem to engage properly. All the lights work, along with steam and water out of the wand. The red light flashes and switches between red and cup back and forth. It does start the...


Hi
Check behind the drip tray for coffee grounds. Make sure that your drip tray is locked in. If its not fully locked it, this could be your problem. If everything is removed but the brew unit, grab the handle without pushing the press button, and pull. If the brew unit comes out, it wasn't locked in. Put the drip tray in. Set the brew unit on the drip tray. Now slide the brew unit towards the machine with a little force and see if that locked it in?

I have emptied the dregs drawer, after prompting, and I keep getting a message saying firstly that the dreg drawer is missing (It isn't and I have checked that has been properly fitted)and then that the...


Hi
Dredge drawer is the big box on the bottom right. That is where the grounds are dumped. Remove the drip tray and pull the drawer out about half way. Push it back in with 1 finger on the right side of the drawer. That should clear the message. If it comes back on when you put in the drip tray, there is a section of the drip tray that can be removed to stop that. On the right side of the drip tray is a notch. Inside that notch is a thin piece of plastic. It curls up on the right side. Cut out the piece that curls up (just the piece that curls, about an inch). When you push in the drip tray that curl lifts the dredge drawer and knocks it out of position.
When you want to empty the grounds because it says to in the menu, REMEMBER TO LEAVE THE MACHINE ON when you remove the drawer. The machine is a counter and when it reaches the magic number for that machine the message comes on. If the machine is turned off when you pull the drawer out, the machine doesn’t know this and the message will be there when you turn the machine back on. Also remember to leave the drawer out for at least 15 seconds or a little longer so the machine thinks you actually dumped the grounds

Capresso C3000 Mega-weak coffee


I have a Capresso fo 7 years now, had few problems, but always solve them.
If youe machine does all the functions properly, but doesn't give you coffee, you should check if everytnhig goes into the grounds tray. If that's the case you may only have a broken "O ring" inside the pressing element. It makes the coffe, but throws it away instead of filling the cup. I had that problem, and it was the "O ring".
If the grounds dunped on the tray are dry, you're looosing the water in the back, probably on the relief valve.
Hope this helps!
