Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine
The hot water dispensers in units such as yours are controlled by solenoids.
The unit then senses that there is something wrong, as there is no water flowing. This tells the control card that the water system needs to be primed/purged of air.
What you will need to do is access the interior of the unit and locate the solenoid that is at fault.
I am sorry but there is no information available to help you do this repair. Apparently DeLonghi wants you to take your unit to one of their authorized service centers so that they can charge you too much to fix it.
There is a consolation though. They will sell you the parts to repair it. You will have to call the 800 number in your owners manual, and know what part it is that you need.
I called them just a few minuets ago and they actually were helpful. But as I am not the owner they would not tell me the part number or anything more than they did have the part in stock. They wouldn't even tell me if it was actually a solenoid. Just that they were familiar with the part and it was in stock. You should not have the same brick wall to knock down as you are the owner of their product.
At this time DeLonghi is still maintaining propriety over the service manuals for this unit if any even exist. There are people like myself that don't need a manual to repair units like your espresso machine. The only thing I would require is access to the repair parts.
Once these units are made obsolete they may release the manuals. It depends on whether they are still bringing in repairs to their authorized centers.
In a nutshell they are not letting go if it makes them money, or they might not even have one. That would depend on if they have guys like me doing the repairs.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my
expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling.
The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or
espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale
builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow,
reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from
working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full
order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time
intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your
water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two
main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your
Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you
descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can
use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If
you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less
often than if you make cappuccinos.
Descaling products are widely available from stores
that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product
you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific
use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and
make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water
and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products
or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case
your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet,
then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for
espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the
instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has
been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I
descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee.
