I have owned this machine since purchasing it new from Starbucks some time ago. The machine still works but likely needs some professional maintenance at this point in its lifespan. Here's what I know this machine will need and maybe a few other things as well? The cord was cut at some point, but I repaired it, and it's never been a problem but has electrical tape on the cord where it was cut.
I broke the plastic tab on the discard tray that goes inside the machine, but it doesn't seem to affect the operation of the machine. I would assume the machine will also need a new grinder mechanism since I've never replaced it, but it has never seemed to be an issue and still grinds the beans just fine. The machine does everything is made to do and still makes great shots of coffee.Perhaps it just needs those things I mentioned addressed. It's been a fabulous machine, and I haven't had any issues other than what I've mentioned. This DeLonghi Magnifica Espresso Machine EAM-3400.
