I had this problem too. The instruction manual says to turn the steam knob only half way counter-clockwise after pressing the button for 5 seconds, but you need to turn it ALL the way to have the procedure start (at least, that was the solution with my machine). Good luck!

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.

ha this is the same problem i had just last week at a customers house with the same machine , the knob does pull off but it is hellish tight and you feel like the valve is about to burst through the front of the machine but it does pull off, when fitting the new knob it is a good idea to put some grease over the shaft before pushing the new knob on as it's nearly as hard pushing the new one back on as taking the old one off.

In our case we were lucky. Grinder was blocked by the beans. This is what I have done with our Delonghi 5400. It looked fiddly but was quite simple really. I started from the back panel. Once back panel was removed I had access to 4 corner screws that remove both side panels. Now that give me access to 4 corner screws that hold top of the machine. I l also had to unscrew 5 screws that hold coffee container in place. 4 are visible once the coffee beans container is open, but the 5th is hidden in the middle of adjustment arm with a black cap on top.(adjusting how fine you grind). I used small sharp screwdriver to lift the cap. Once all are out I removed the top of the machine and then the funnely coffee container too. That exposed grinder assembly. Top of the grinder is actually loosely sitting in the lower part of grinder. Twisting it counter clock should release it I Think. Our was not budging, and I had to completely remove the grinder and detach motor but that is quite obvious too, and probably not needed. I just wasn't sure what I was doing. Our machine was out of warranty so... Would be nice if we had some schematics.
