SOURCE: Descaling light still blinks on our Magnifica 3300

I would move the machine to another room and use a couple of cups of plain white vinegar and let it sit overnight before running the cycle again. The mild acid should remove the calcium buildup.

SOURCE: descaling a delonghi magnifica ESAm04

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!

SOURCE: How do you descale my Delonghi Magnifica?

10.3 DESCALING Due to the continuous heating of the water used to make the coffee, over time it is normal for the tubing inside the machine to fill with lime scale. When the light starts flashing (section 12 - point 5), it is time to descale the machine. NOTE: when the light switches on, the coffee maker can still be used to prepare coffee. Proceed as follows: • Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus one liter of water. For subsequent descaling operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorized technical service centers. Note: Make sure splashes of descaler do not fall onto surfaces sensitive to acid such as marble, limestone and granite. • place a container with a minimum capacity of 34 oz. under the cappuccino frother (Fig. 3); • turn the machine on by pressing the button (Fig. 4). • wait for the green and indicator lights to come on steady. • press and hold the button for at least 5 seconds (Fig.14). The decalcification warning light will illuminate (section 11 - point 8) to indicated the start of the descaling program (the and lights remain off to indicate that it is not possible to make coffee). • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig.5). The descaling solution will come out of the cappuccino frother and start to fill the container underneath. • the descaling program automatically performs a series of deliveries and pauses, so as to remove the lime scale deposits from inside the coffee maker. Fig.32 The two red buttons have snapped out CORRECTLY The two red buttons have not snapped out CORRECT INCORRECT 17 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS • after around 30 minutes, when the light comes on (section 12 - point 1), turn the steam knob half a turn clockwise (Fig.6) until it stops. The machine must be rinsed so as to eliminate the residues of descaling solution from inside the machine. Proceed as follows: • remove the water tank, rinse it and fill it with clean water. • reposition the tank. • empty the collection container (located under the milk frother) that is full of liquid, and then replace it under the milk frother. • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig. 5). Hot water will come out of the milk frother and fill the container underneath. • when the tank is empty, the l ight goes off and the light comes on (section 12 - point 1). • turn the steam knob all the way clockwise (Fig. 6) and fill the water tank with clean water again. • the program of descaling is now terminated and the machine is ready to make coffee again. NOTE: if the descaling procedure is interrupted before completion, the alarm (section 12 - point 5) is not deactivated and the procedure must be started again form the beginning.

SOURCE: I have a delonghi magnifica

Here was an answer from wholetottalove.com:
DeLonghi recommends using Durgol, and you should descale/decalcify about once every 3 months depending on your water quality. Some DeLonghi machines even have built-in message systems to notify you when it is time to descale. You can purchase Durgol by following the links below. Durgol Express is ideal for coffee makers, and Durgol Swiss Espresso is recommended for espresso machines.

This site says you can use citrus based descaling solution to the directions on the bottle.

Good luck, and hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Magnifica. The descale red flashing

After descaling the machine, the green lights won't stop flashing and it won''t reset itself back to normal. Ipressed both buttons to put it into descaling mode and then it says to press both buttons again to reset it. Just won't work. Stays in descaling mode.

Delonghi magnifica has exclamation


Switch the machine off, AND pull the plug, wait 5 minutes (to be sure) and turn it on. Then turn it off again, now the infuser should return to it's normal position where you can take it out.
If the descale button is still flashing, try descaling again. Was the procedure interupted before? That would be a reason the light keeps flashing.

Delonghi magnifica esam 4200 lost bar pressure for frothing milk


The most possible problem is that the machine have build up scale both in boiler and in pipe system. Your are still in good chance to solve it easily since it operates normal by performing a good descaling of the machine. You can buy a very good product posibly from ebay like the Urnex DEZCAL which is an excelent descaler and if you perform a couple of descling procedures in a period of one week your machine will perfom better and better.

Hello, you can buy descaling tablets at your local Starbucks. There is also a liquid descaling solution (small bottles) you can buy anywhere.

At the moment I'm using Jura brand descaling tablets I purchased at Starbucks. For instructions on how to descale (quite simple really), see here on p-17 at:
