Question about DeLonghi Magnifica 3300 Espresso Machine
Likely a foreign object is blocking up the grinder. Remove all beans and run at coarsest grind to try to clear it, chase it through with more beans if necessary. If this does not clear it then the top burr of the grinder assembly can be removed after disassembling the machine. Mark the grinder coarseness cogs before moving them to assist reassembly. Moderately difficult procedure.

I had a similar problem, and solved it by turning the grinder by hand against resistance. Apparently the grinder wasn't really turning during the cycle and needed to be cleared. If your beans are "hopping" this may be a different problem.

Testimonial: "Grinder is turning but old bean oil is clogging it. Stirring beans on next brewing after drying the grinder was also customer services recommendation"

ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans

My F9 started with the "Fill Beans" routine even though there were plenty. The grinder started making a high-pitched noise, which Capresso's customer service told me was indicative of something being stuck in the grinder (like the stones mentioned in the manual).
Their suggestions ranged from vacuuming out the grinder to blowing compressed air into it, to "burping" the machine -- which they describe as hitting it mildly while grinding. Kind of a Heimlich maneuver on the thing.
Still no success, but I did turn the unit upside down a few times and shook out a *lot* of coffee grounds. This led me to believe that the grinder was still working, but something was blocking it down low. So I ran the cleaning cycle twice, and voila, coffee again.
An interesting aside was that the first dump from the first cleaning delivered the usual grounds but also some more pasty-like remains, and pretty dirty water. The dump water from the second cycle was very clear. This is a testimonial to the efficacy of the cleaning process. If you don't do this when the machine requests it, you are running the risk of gumming it up. I know (now); I had been ignoring the request to clean it for about a week and a half...

I have had the same problem the only way I could get it to brew would to use the program quantity feature every time. I was going to take it in today and decided to restore the factory settings and now its working like it should. This seems to be a circuit board issue Ouch! I have another issue with the steam, if I take the knob off it works if I don't it doesn't glad I bought a 2K model GRRRRR!
