I had this problem until I realised that you need to switch the machine off by pressing the on/off button on the front of the machine first *before* switching it off at the back and unplugging it. This moves the infuser unit further to the bottom and then allows you to take it out.

Try unplugging the machine; wait 20 seconds; plug back in and wait for the diagnostic cycle to complete. Turn off machine. Now see if the infuser can be removed. Assuming this does the trick, before reinserting the thoroughly cleaned infuser, check that the two screws that hold the infuser holder to the back plane, which become visible when the infuser is removed, are tight. These are screws with a hex head socket, so you will need a hex screwdriver to tighten them.

The machine is not flashing an error message. When a problem is detected you get an error message on display.
First hold down ESC (or STOP/CLEAR depending on model), just in case machine is stuck in programming mode.
Disconnect power cord for two minutes. Connect back and try a reset if the problem is not fixed:
•Press the CHANGE button and the appliance displays "RESET TO DEFAULT YES";
•Press the OK button to reset the factory default values;
•Press the MENU button to exit programming mode or NEXT to change other parameters.
If that does not work, try holding down rinse or descale. If the machine starts rinse or descale, complete the procedure. If machine gets stuck in rinse or descale, keep filling the container while performing the procedure.
If all that does not fix the problem, call Delonghi at the number listed on the owners manual, the machine is defective.
Try all the rest first, or Delonghi may ask you to do some of the same procedures while operator is waiting at the phone.
