Question about DeLonghi EAM3400 Espresso Machine

Water ends up in the tray

When attempting to make a coffee, the machine goes through the routine as it should, however the water is diverted to the tray instead of through the infuser. When trying to steam I get a small amount of steam.I stripped the machine down and cleand the infuser and the water pump solenoid. I also pulled out the drain piping where the water enters the tray. I suspect water is being diverted because a either solenoid or valve is not functioning correctly, or the PCB that drives it is faulty.

Can anyone help.....???????..... I really need a coffee !!

Have you checked the brew group screen? I am assuming that this is a super automatic machine, and by pressing a button it grinds and brews? If yes then the only other problem would be in the brew unit.

Water goes into bottom tray


One possible problem is to try to clean the group shower which it can be ansrew by one center screw and if you can you can open the machine and remove to clean also the coffee group solenoid valve. Both the valve and shower can be full of dry coffee that can blocked the way of water coming to the grounded coffee.
One other posibble problem is the vibrating water pump. It might be full of scale and it can not create any pressure or it is completetly damage and need to be replaced.
First we sugest to perform a descaling of the machine and try again.
Second you should try to reduce by little the quantity of the grounded coffee used. Aprox you should use 7 to7.5 gr of coffee. If you try to use about 6 to 6.5 and you have the coffee runing out from the machine like in 25 sec you have about 30 cc of water.
If you manage to clean everything above and the machine work ok so from now on in order to avoid the problem again try to flush water from the group many times without any coffee. With this is like you wash the group shower and valve from any remai coffee.
Good luck

Water not coming out of dispensing area, goes to drip tray instead Water comming out in drip tray instead of regular way


Try this, if the machine has a pregrind door(usually on the top front) then use the button to tell it you are using pre grind coffee, if water comes out the spout this way then the grind on the grinder is too fine, if it goes out the drain then the coffee passage is blocked, remove the brew unit and check/clear tubes, also clean the spouts on the door of the unit.

My SAECO coffee machine is a real disappiontment. We frothed the milk a few times and then the machine started to only warm the milk and provide a small amount of froth. Now the company is trying to tell me it's something I am doing! Not so. It is the expensive machine not working.

Saeco Talea Giro no steam or water from spout


I have the same problem as well, talked to a repair shop and it's definitely a "send in" or warranty repair. I was told it's an o-ring issue. I have no water coming out of the steam wand and it goes into the dispense tray instead.

Estro magic delux (now saeco i think) water leaks below brew unit


There is a small metal plate with holes below the square funnel shape on the brew unit. This plate has a pink rubber seal and a stem that goes up into the brew unit. The stem is knurled with ridges and is attached to a screw on the plate. The screw has become loose and the plate is not held tight against the seal. Turn the knurled knob clockwise until it tightes the plate against the bottom of the unit. Make sure the plate is centered as I believe there is a slight lip that it recesses into. Should stop the water in the grounds collector. Of course the seal must be in good condition. Paul

No coffee, water going to the drip tray


OK, so this is a problem with your brew unit. The unit is not cycling correctly to tell the water to come through.

We had another problem like this just this week.

The wat we fixed it was 1) Give the Brew Unit a really good clean. 2)Make sure the Brew Unit can complete a cycle - manually rotate the brew unit components through a cycle 3) Lubricate the Brew Units moving parts if necessary using some Saeco or Other Food Grade Lubricant

Then try watch a complete coffee cycle by leaving the side door of your machine open, and tricking the micro switches into thinking the door is closed by engaging them with some card or something similar.

Let us know if this does not resolve your issue.
