20 Most Recent DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine Questions & Answers

I had this same problem and discussed it with DeLonghi customer service. My machine was grinding 20 seconds for a double shot and ground coffee was coming out of the top and spilling over inside what a mess! DeLonghi thought it was potentially a problem with the control board - grinding time too long - which is an expensive repair. I also called the local factory-authorized service and described the same problem. They asked what kind of beans I was using and I answered Starbucks espresso. They said that Starbucks is too oily, clogs the machine, and that I should try beans that are lighter. I also checked with an engineer who used to work at Starbucks and he made the same guess. I tried an Italian roast espresso from a local market and it worked! I've had no problems since. The new beans cleaned out the oils and I'm getting great shots. This is a good machine, but is best making single shots.

These machines do need to be lubricated every so often. First, buy some food safe lubricant, e.g. here. Then, turn the machine off, open the front door, and remove the infuser. There is a holder connected to the machine by two hex screws. You may remove this (or even just leave it on). Now attach a long tube to the lubricant (should come with the can) and spray lubricant on both sides of the vertical screw that moves the infuser up and down. Give it a few good sprays on both sides of the screw, up and down, and that should solve your problem.

I think the microswitch that sensors the front door is not activated. Try to find it and "give it a massage" The machine resets the counter for the grounds container every time the door switch is activated.

We had excactly the same problem a couple of times recently with a lot of troubleshooting,like adjsusting grinder, reseting the to factory settings, and many more and we end up that it was a problem with pcb control board which lost the preset timing of grinding thus the coffee grinding where about 3-4 sec and the correct one shold be about 8-9 sec. We have here one side which have the control board for your reference.

Thanks globalautomo!!
It sure looked clean but upon further inspection the tiny hole was not. Boiled it just like you said and immediately it works like it should. My wife is grateful!

I have the same problem as this after cleaning. The machine won't power on. It does a power on self test and then the grounds tray full or missing light comes on and nothing else can be done.

A friend of mine with a similar machine says hers fixed itself after a while so assume some sensor got jammed/obscured with my over zealous cleaning. However I'm not hopeful. Might try taking it apart.

Sensor and clip bad. Check switch

Recycling the power resets the position of the defuser. When you turn it off, make sure you do it via the button on the front before swutching it off at the power point.
