Could be scale build up. Do you have well water? You should run a descaler or white vinegar through the unit often to keep the boiler outlets clean.

Unless you are saying that the pump just doesn't run, ie, no noise, vibration, etc. Then, thanks for the warning that their pumps are bad.

Delonghi Magnifica 3300 doesn't make coffee, only wet grounds and water in the grounds container, everything else seems normal


Hi JB, not sure if you've junked your 3300 machine by now or had the problem fixed already. Nevertheless, allow me to share with owners of DeLonghi Magnifica Espresso machines who encounter similar problem to yours. Incidentally, mine is a Delonghi Magnifica 3200 which is very much the same as the 3300. Firstly, try to ascertain if the pump is working normally. When the machine is ready to brew coffee, turn ON the steam/hot water knob and see if it pumps normally and for more than 30secs at least. My machine could pump for short durations between 5secs to 20secs max before the water light came on. I checked the flow meter connection but is all seemed well. I noticed signs of water leak (dried up chalky water stains) where the steam wand exits the control panel. Upon opening up the control panel, I noticed a larger patch of dried up water stains on the wand valve assembly. Bought a set of steam wand assembly replacement and to replace the leaking one. It's been some six month now and I'm enjoying my daily cuppa again. Btw, my Delonghi Magnifica 3200 has been serving me well for 10 years! Apart from the steam wand replacement and a faulty micro-switch, I only had to carry out the usual descaling and replacing worn out O-rings.

I have a delonghi EC701 machine. It was over heating and after making a cup I left the machine on. a few minutes later it blew the ring fuse and now it will not heat up the water. The machine seems o get...


First, I'm not a delonghi technician. But I've worked on similar units.
* Table top brewers usually have water reservoirs that require monitoring and refilled when they get low (especially after brewing)
* It's possible the water level sensor is stuck (in the water reservoir) which tells the machine that it still has water and keeps heating the tank(s). Clean tank as described in your manual. You will still need servicing to check and replace fuse(s).
* There is usually two tanks/heaters in this type of table top machine (larger pro models use one large tank) The thermal limit fuse on one or both are probably blown. Call vendor for service.
* Did you change water source? Since this is a table top machine in which you fill the water tank. Try to use filtered (bottled ok) water. Do Not use Distilled or 100% pure water as this type of water will eat out the metals from your machine! Some places use a water softener as it tends to be better for the machine long term (years).
* Still got problems? Check with vendor or MFR for service or replacement. Most machines of this type do not have serviceable parts or adjustments.

Suddenly stopped working.


If you are talking that the while unit failed or just the coffee? If the light comes on and the coffee is not brewing than it is the heat plate fuse. You need tamper torx bits to open the unit and replace the fuse, radio shack sells them.

Heater stopped working suddenly


In the past I have nothing but problems with DeLonghi heaters. I replaced them with Pelonis heaters and have had no problems since. Pelonis heaters are availible from Home Depot at a very reasonable price. This is based on my experience only. Hope it helps.

DeLonghi EC701 Pump out


I had the same issue. Scale build up in the port that routes water to the boiler outlet for the coffee filter basket. Frother tube was fine.

I used CLR to open it back up. Used 1 part to 4 of water and ran a whole reserviour through the unit. At first, it only dripped and then finally it blew open when the CLR dissolved the scale.

Make sure to run lots of clean water through the unit after so that you don't end up drinking acid with your next cup. I ran about a gallon through to rinse it out.

No water ever makes it through the pump


I just got mine working again. There was scale in the outlet port for the coffee basket.
Try cleaning by running through a solution of CLR and water (1 to 4 parts) and keep running until the blockage dissolves and flow is restored. Then run another solution again just to clean it for good.

MAKE SURE TO RINSE OUT THE RESERVIOUR VERY WELL. Should run clear without foam after about a gallon of clean water.
