Nope, it isn't moving at all. I wound it back down and got the infuser out but it wont reset - just has general alarm. It has no on off switch, just at the front.

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.

Have an older style XTS boogie 2 pram. Got it second hand and can't remember how to fold the chasi down. please help! I've pulled the red button thing on the right hand hinge but nothing...


Gosh, this is testing my memory! I believe that there is a black lever on the handle bar. This is on the left hand side. Place your hands in the normal pushing position, then slide your hand down and following the natural curve and underneath where the hood sits there should be a lever type thing (can't think of a better way to describe it!). Press this lever down, then release the red button on the right hand side, then push the handle toward the floor, that should do it.

Hope this helps.

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).

Press and twist the release button in centre of handle (twist towards seat), while simultaneously pulling up the secondary release on right hand side of handle (just where the rubber grip ends). There is a red dot on each of these so they can be identified.

We had the same problem a few months ago - hadn't used it in a couple of years - had to pull out the manual.

Hope this helps

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

How do I open the case of a Compaq evo d51S to upgrade memory?

Press the two side buttons, slide the case forwards, then lift it up and off. Sounds too easy, doesn't it?

The case can sometimes become stuck, requiring a bit more force. With the PC on a stable flat surface, press the side buttons and **** the top forwards vigorously. Be sure to press the rearward part of the side buttons so that the forward part starts to protrude a bit. This releases the catch behind the forward part of the button.

The case needs to slide forward about an inch to be able to lift off.

If your case is still not moving, you have probably encountered the dreaded stuck case syndrome. Looking at the case from the front, the left-hand side is stuck but the right-hand side releases. You are not alone, this has happened to more than one of us. I'm still not 100% clear on where the case jams, but there is a way to free it up.

NOTE: No tools are required to free the case cover, but you will most likely need pliers to straighten the clips afterwards!

Press both side buttons and slide the top cover forward as far as you can. Looking at the case from the front, twist the cover a little to allow the right-hand side to clear the clips. Once clear, lift up the right-hand side. It will catch on the chassis and, if fitted, the floppy-drive eject button. Gently ease the front of the cover forward so that the floppy-drive eject button clears the drive.

Next, slowly and firmly lift the right-hand side up and out past the chassis. This requires a bit of force (strength), but should not require violence (hitting).

If the case still won't release properly on the left-hand (CD/DVD) side, continue pivoting the case up from the right-hand side. At some point (cover probably around 60-75 degrees to its usual horizontal position), you will feel the metal clips resist. Release a little to see if the case is now free to move. If it is not, lift further, bending the clips as you go. Suddenly the case will be free to move forward! (You should not need to get to 90 degrees).

Once the cover slides forward, you will need to raise and lower it to work the clips out. The rear clips should release before the front ones and you can slowly pivot the cover out.

You will need to use pliers to straighten the clips before replacing the cover.

When replacing the cover, check to make sure that the cover slides easily back and forth before pushing it all the way back. The cover metal will only bend so many times before it breaks so you don't want to do this process more than once.

Magnifico eam3200 series...centre piece jammed

I have a perfecta and found that the mechanism that translates the infused up and down was jammed. I unplugged it and removed the back panel - two phillips screws - then you will see the motor and cog belt -BE SURE UNPLUGGED - I then turned the motor shaft using my index finger against the cog belt and with the access door open I could see the infuser translate down to a park position. I took it through an entire cycle which actually retracted the infuser and actuated the coffee grind sweep arm - there is a horizontal feature that looks like a sideways 'L' that seems to be a reference for the park location - since when the top of the infuser was at this mark the infuser unit could be removed and the infuser was in the compact configuration as described in the user manual. I am getting a general alarm still and would like to know if anyone could point me to an electrical schematic and functional sequence block diagram.
