    Did you put water in it and follow the instructions for start up?

    Sorry I wasnt quite clear in my last thread! when I turn the machin on it warms up with no problem, the steamer works great and the "ready" lights are on but as soon as I press the "Espresso" button (The little cup sign) 4 of the lights start blinking together! the four lights are (no watr, no beans, warning and grinder light!)
    the beans and the water containers are both filled and I have done all the priming as I was told in the instruction booklet a couple of times so far.

SOURCE: I Have a Cuisinart Automatic

I do love our Cuisinart pot...but find they only last 2-3 years...so my suggestions is: if the pot is still in warranty, call Cuisinart for a new one...they are great about it. If you don't know if it is still in warranty, call them, give them the number and they will tell you.

SOURCE: Grind Off light blinking

There must be a sensor or switch that is stuck. Often the grindings find their way into the nooks and cranys thasurround the mechanism. A bit confused on the grinder off light blinking when the grinder IS off.? But, I'll work with ya on it. Are you saying the light is blinking when it shouldn't be, like when the grinder is on? :-)

SOURCE: My Cuisinart 10 cup Grind & Brew does not

you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.

Gaggia unica red triangle flashing at same time as green cup


Hi there My experience tells me that when a red light flashes on a coffeemaker it is one of three things: It needs water to be able to make more coffee The "bowl" that the compressed coffee goes in ids full and needs emptying It needs cleaning I would start filling the waterholder, Then emptying the compressed coffee holder If neither works, then start the cleaning prosess Best of luck and enjoy your coffee Kolbrun

Saeco Incanto Rondo right red light is on and I cannot make coffee. The machine grinds the beans but does not dispense any coffee.


Try to set the machine to grind finer. Common problem with this machine when the grinder grinds too coarse, and the coffee will not fit in the brew unit during the cycle. Grinding finer will allow the brew unit to compress and the machine should complete the cycle.

If this does not work there may be another thing to try, Let me know support@cerinicoffee.com

Either the grind is too fine or the brew unit is blocked at the screen.

Grind Off light blinking


Mine was doing that for the past week. I think it was indicating there had been a power outage but that the clock had not reset to zeros. I changed the time a couple of minutes and it stopped.

Seaco Easy wont work/Warning light blinking always


Try descaling the machine. If there is no water getting to the brew unit then it might be blocked, if you checked the brew unit then the blockage might be at the boiler or one of the lines.

No coffee is dispenced


Ok, If you pull out the waste water tray and bean tray, along with the brew unit ( by pushing the lever that says push) turn the brew unit upside down and you will see a layer of waste coffee grinds on a circular metal plate, just rinse it under a cold tap, dry it off and reassemble
Also you may want to try rinsing other parts of the brew unit and give it a general clean if there are any other build-ups of coffee grinds :)
