Question about DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine
There's a warning light (fixed exclamation point in triangle; cups are fixed green, not blinking, there's no reference to that situation in the manual). I tried to remove the infuser and clean it (power off) but despite my best efforts (I have strong hands) and pressing as instructed on the 2 red sideways buttons, it won't budge.
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).

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.
