DeLonghi Magnifica #EAM-3400-N dripping water/steam

7 posts in this topic

Merry Christmas!

Does anyone here have the ability to supply parts?

I have the above listed automatic coffee maker and the valve to start and stop the flow of water from the wand leaks. If replacements are available, I will list what I think needs replaceing and how I made the diagnosis.

Thank you,

Dave

Yes sir, that is the diagram I found. I do not know if I really need the entire valve (#41) or just some of the "O" rings for the shaft itself. I descale regularly and use filtered water, so there is minimum build-up when the cleaning cycle runs. I have taken both the valve and boiler (#64) apart to see if there was anything mechanical/structural wrong, but it doesn't seem to be.

After brewing a cup of coffee, the valve drips water or leaks steam which is very wasteful. Also,for your very first cup, if you do not steam something first, all your water leaks out the steam wand. The unit is several years out of warranty and we make several cups a day and more on weekends, so if the complete valve has to be purchased, I'm not going to be really bummed. Much.

Fantastic! I do think that I will be ordering the $37 dollar one, though. I am "0" for 2011 buying the cheapest thing around.

All you guys are the best.

Thanks again,

Dave

One last question: How did you OR where did you find a listing for part numbers? I looked, but did not find an actual list or a place to purchase parts. Until you posted them.

Thanks,

Dave

I could tell you, but then you'd have to kill me...
