SOURCE: hello i have an Delonghi esam

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.

SOURCE: petrol gauge stuck on empty and light constantly

Sounds like a broken gas tank sensor in the gas tank. The sending unit has probably gone out.

SOURCE: Can't remove infuser to clean it

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.

I had a similar problem which was solved by replacing the infusor. I was able to find a new one on eBay for about $40. Hope this helps.

Infuser jammed in ESAM 5600 cannot get it out

Obvious question really, but is the power turned off? You cannot get the infuser out if the power is on. Or has it been reinserted recently, and incorrectly? The only time I have known of issues getting them out is if the power is on, or if the power went out when it was not parked, in which case turn the power back on it, let it go through the warm up cycle, then turn it off again, let it shut down, then remove the infuser

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.

Can't remove infuser to clean it

Turning off the power with the button is not enough. Instead, to remove the infuser: unplug the machine, wait a few seconds, plug it in again and turn the machine on. Even though you are technically turning it on, the machine will sense it was not turned off in an ok way, so it will "properly" shut off (and unlock the infuser).
