Magnifica Infuser stuck generic error

Like others, my Magnifica stopped working with the infuser stuck all the way down and could not be removed. I managed to get the infuser out by removing the small tab that holds it in. But now it only displays generic error.

I decided to take another look at it last night, and found that the threaded rod on which the infuser travels up and down appears to be stripped at the bottom. If I put a little upward pressure on the infuser "carrier" while turning the gear, the infuser will go up. When I plug the machine in it now moves the infuser carrier to the bottom, but then stops and displays the generic error again.

Does it sound like it is simply this threaded rod that is causing the problem? Is it a replaceable part? It isn't on the Delonghi website under parts and accessories.

Remove base plate and turn pulley clockwise (probably for several minutes) until infuser arm returns to vertical position and the infuser itself drops to the low position. You should here a click when it reaches this point. The infuser can then be removed as normal.

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.

Unable to remove infuser, no warning light, reset multiple times, brews coffee fine


You should go to test mode and try moving infuser up and down to position when you can take it out it needs some skill of timing. After that you need to disassemble infuser completely clean it up and lube with special food grade lube. Also there could be a problem with transmission kit that cause this problem.

Yesterday and today the machine did not come on as normal it said press next + change, nyesterday when I did that it said generic alarm, but then worked, today the generic alarm would not go off. the book...


I had the same problem with the infuser stuck at the top and the triangle light staying lit. I fixed it by unplugging it from the wall. I then removed the side panel and the back panel.

Facing the rear move the sprocket that the motor drives. The best way to start it (if it is stuck) is with a flat screen driver on the right side of the motor and push the sprocket towards the front. Once it starts you can either pull the belt from the other side or push it from the right side. It took 10 minutes to get the infuser to completely come down.

After that I pulled it out and cleaned everything. When I put everything back together the light stayed on and the machine would not respond. I did fix it by turning on the machine, pulled the power plug, and when I plugged it back in the system went through its cycle. Everything is fine now.

'less coffee' error message


The infuser assembly can only be removed with the machine turned off. The infuser needs to be removed and cleaned at least monthly; more often if you use your DeLonghi at lot.

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
