Delonghi magnifica eam 3200 won't descale

My delonghi magnifica eam 3200 needs to be descaled. I have done this in the past with no problems. This time, however, when I press the descale button for 5 seconds, the green lights do not switch off and the descaling process cannot commence. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have the same problem. The descale cycle won't start when I hold down the descale button. It just keeps blinking. I've just been running vinegar through it, and hoping that it removes the lime. I think the button is just bad, or the computer is bad. It seems like a factory defect because the descale cycle hasn't been done enough to wear out the button.

How to discale the unit


Delonghi EAM, ESAM, ECAM, Nespresso

Over time, the continuous heating up of the water used to make the coffee leads to lime scale building up in
the inner circuits of the appliance.
When the appliance displays the message:
DESCALE
you should perform the descale cycle.
Proceed as follows:
• make sure the appliance is ready.
• press the button (the light over the button comes on) then press the button repeatedly until
the appliance displays:
DESCALE No
• Press and the appliance displays the message:
DESCALE Yes
• Press the button to start the descale programme.
• Empty the water tank and add the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus
one litre of water. For subsequent descaling, use descaler of the same type and brand as supplied
(available from technical service centres authorised by the manufacturer).
• attach the water spout to the nozzle;
• place a container with a minimum capacity of 1.5 litres under the hot water spout (Fig. 3);
• press the button. Descaler runs off from the hot water spout into the container below. The appliance
displays:
APPLIANCE IN DESCALE
• the descale programme automatically performs a series of run offs and pauses to remove lime scale
deposits from inside the coffee maker.
• After about 30 minutes, the appliance displays:
RINSING FILL TANK
The appliance must now be rinsed through to eliminate residues of descaling solution from inside the appliance.
Proceed as follows:
• empty the water tank, rinse and fill with clean water.
• Reposition the tank.
• Empty the full container and then put it back under the hot water spout.
• Press the OK button. Hot water is run off from the spout into the container below and the appliance displays:
RINSING
• When the water tank is empty, the appliance displays the message:
RISRINSING COMPLETE PRESS OK
• Press the OK button and refill the water tank with clean water.
• The descale programme is now terminated and the appliance is ready to make coffee again.
NOTE: if the descaling cycle is interrupted before completion, the appliance continues to display the descale
message and the programme must be started again from the beginning. Empty the water tank, rinse, fill with
clean water and run off a cup of hot water.
IMPORTANT: FAILURE TO DESCALE THE APPLIANCE REGULARLY INVALIDATES THE GUARANTEE.

Our Delonghi Magnifica Automatic Capuccino machines needs de-scaling, I would like some instructions, and also is there any way of increasing the temperature of the coffee.


Hi,

Press the 'menu' button and then the 'change' button repeatedly until it shows 'descale'. Then press 'ok' to choose yes. You have to add descaler to the water container.

Descaling a delonghi magnifica ESAm04


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!

DeLonghi Esclusivo Magnifica ESAM3300 Espresso Machine My Magnificant machine is displaying Descale. Where i can buy some tablets to make a service and i need instruction.


Hello, you can buy descaling tablets at your local Starbucks. There is also a liquid descaling solution (small bottles) you can buy anywhere.

At the moment I'm using Jura brand descaling tablets I purchased at Starbucks. For instructions on how to descale (quite simple really), see here on p-17 at:

Hope this helps.
