Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

The light to demineralize turned on. I filled the water container w/ water and the demineralizer solution, and now the pump makes a loud mechanical noise and water is not sucked up into the machine, and the water light turns on as if the water container is empty, but it is full.

Hi


Please turn off the machine and empty the water+demenerializing solution into a vessel. Now let the machine dry for 10-15 minutes. Now, try descaling the machine with half the solution used before. If you are still facing the same issue then there might be something stuck in the pump.

Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.

I now use soft, filtered water each day. The "descale" message still comes up every 60 days. Is descaling that frequently, normal?


yes you will still need to descale it
soft filtered water still contains minerals and calcium but in lesser quantities
if you wish to avoid descaling use distilled water or demineralized water

I need to know how much water to put in it.


press the helpful button

Fill the provided measurement cup to the maximum fill line with water. In areas with a high mineral concentration in the tap water, we recommend using distilled or demineralized water to prolong the life of the steam cleaner. Using the funnel, pour the contents of the cup into the reservoir.

WHEN I TURN ON THE HUMIDISTAT the water line going into the filter just starts gushing!is this the selenoid?


first its important to understand how humidifiers work ,


they work by using a pressurized source of water (prefer demineralized) that enters a chamber that has a device that wicks the water up into it , then a fan induces a draft across it , this produces evaporation of the water into the air flow , this air is then ducted into the air handler for the structure (home?)
now that being said the water chamber needs constant refilling due to evaporation of water from air flow , most times this is handled from a solenoid valve that is basically an electric operated valve , and yes it's logical that it could be tied to a humidistat for demand use only .

also this type of humidifier requires frequent cleaning or it may back up and spill water in the wrong places ,especially if there isn't a demineralizing filter on water line , as the minerals that naturally occur in water don't evaporate and get left inside the chamber , making less and less room for new water to be added

WATER LEVEL FLOAT DEVICE PREVENTS UNIT FROM TURNING ON,EVEN THOUGH WATER TANK IS FULL. REMOVED SOME FILTER MATERIAL WITH NO EFFECT. FLOAT IS FREE WITH NO RESTRICTION.


These hints are from the air o swiss webpage.
Q: No mist / unit is not working / empty indicator keeps flashing
A: Fill up the water tank. Check if water is flowing through the demineralization cartridge (attached to the water tank cap). If the water tank is full but there is only little water in the base it indicates that the water is now flowing through the demineralization cartridge.

  • Wait for 15 minutes to allow the mist to come out of the unit.
  • If the unit is not working and the empty light is not flashing you might have set the desired humidity too low and the current humidity level in the room is higher. That is why the unit switches off automatically.
  • If the empty indicator continues flashing and the tank is full, water is not flowing through the cartridge. Exchange the cartridge or the granules in the cartridge after 2-3 months, in areas with hard water exchange the cartridge after 1 -2 months. However, the demineralization cartridge and or the granules must be exchanged at the latest after 6 months or the unit does not reach its full performance.
If the granules are new, see the following instructions:

  • Make sure the cartridge and/or granules were soaked for 24 hours, water takes longer to filter through dry granules in cartridge and into the base. Next, remove 2 tablespoons of granules from the cartridge, and throw them away. Too many granules in the cartridge it does not allow water to flow from the tank to the base.
If your issue is with the float and not the mister, then you have to make sure the float is tripping the micro switch that turns the machine on. Some units the filter will not allow the float to hit the switch if the filter is not installed correctly. If everything is in correctly and the float is tripping the switch, then the micro switch must be faulty.

Why does it discharge a white powder in the mist?


  • Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
  • you could say you have dirty water. Unplug the humidifier from the wall.
  • 2 Remove the existing water from the humidifier. Water contains several types of minerals, including iron and sodium, which cause the white powder when released into the air.
  • 3 Clean the humidifier according to the manufacturer's instructions. This may involve disassembling the unit and replacing the humidifier's filter.
  • 4 Pour demineralized or distilled water into the humidifier's tank. These liquids have a lower mineral content than tap water.
  • 5 Consider switching to a humidifier that comes equipped with a demineralizing filter, which removes the minerals found in tap water before they are dispersed into the air.

  • I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

    How do you fill the venta humidifier I don't have


    http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/123738.pdf


    Fill Water Tank.

    Turn off humidifier and unplug the power cord from A/C outlet. Remove tank from

    base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled,

    filtered, or tap water. Do not attempt to fill unit through Vapor Nozzle. Water temperature

    should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Extreme temperatures can damage the

    unit. Tighten filling cap firmly. Return tank to base and let it sit for a few minutes. For

    first time use or when replacing the demineralization cartridge filter, please soak the

    filter in warm water for several minutes.

    Fill the resevoir with a 25% vinegar to water solution & turn on the iron until it steams. Allow to cool and empty resevoir then rinse with clean water. Fill up resevoir and & turn on the iron until it steams again. Cool, empty & rinse again. DONE!

    Only use distilled or reverse osmosis water in your iron. This will reduce mineral build up.

    Q: Unit is running intermittently.
    A: How long has it been since the contents of the cartridge were replaced? If 2-3 months have passed, it is time to replace the contents of the cartridge. However the demineralization cartridge and or the granules must be exchanged at the latest after 6 months or the unit ceases operating at its full performance. If the contents of the cartridge were just replaced there are probably too many granules in the cartridge. Remove 2 tablespoons of granules from the cartridge.
