Question about Braun Tassimo Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker

Open Question

Braun Tassimo (Model Type 3107) won't brew.

System heats water, ready light comes on, but when the start button is pushed, it starts for about a second and then stops. No water or steam pushed through the pod. Any ideas?

    I solved this myself after working on all day!:


    • The key to the problem is that there is a sensor in the water reservoir -- a black float at the bottom, which helps the system sense when the water is running low.

    • Although there is plenty of water, the sensor perceives that the float has fallen, and stops the process.

    • By giggling or pulling the reservoir up about a half inch, up and down, the sensor "sees" the float again and the system continues with the dispensing cycle.

    • This giggling may be necessary 2-3 times for one cup of coffee. But, usually after getting the machine running again, it continues to work for a while.

    • One reason the float may be misaligned is --- after refilling the reservoir, especially from a water tap that has an aereator, a bubble may form inside the float compartment and prevent the float from rising all the way--- that will be read by the sensor as "out of water". Shake the reservoir and the bubble will dislodge.

    That's is the primary solution to this scenario.



    But, I also had unusual occurances of "all-lights-flashing", even though the machine was processing correctly (test disc, coffee or tea; with correct stages and water amounts). Since the machine was making drinks, I did not try to debug the light indicator, which implied that something was wrong with the disc or with water levels--- but there was not a problem at that point.



    Hope this helps someone else---- it took me 4-5 hours to decypher all this!!!

    This worked great, if ur small black sensor will not go up put something about an half inch under it and it will now work.

How do we insert the coffee pods


Open the brew mechanism. Opening the brew
mechanism will initiate the heating of the water and the
HEATING light will flash.
2 Place a clean cup on the cup stand, adjusting the height of the
stand up or down so that the rim of the cup is close to the
brew mechanism.
• To adjust the cup stand, insert your finger in the center
of the stand, lift and turn.
• To avoid spilling over, please choose the right sized cup for
the drink you are making.
3 Position your choice of T-DISC on the T-DISC holder, label facing
down. Firmly close the brew mechanism by pressing the clamp
down until it shuts. The HEATING light may flash again as the
machine heats the water to the required temperature for
your drink.
4 When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop
button. Brewing will start automatically. There may be a short pause
during brewing; this is normal and is designed to draw out the full flavor
of your drink. The AUTO light flashes throughout the brew cycle. When
the machine has finished brewing, the indicator light will move from
AUTO to MANUAL and then, after a delay of 30 seconds, to HEATING.
5 Open the brew mechanism, remove the T-DISC and discard.
Your drink is now ready to be enjoyed.
You can prepare the next beverage right away by repeating
steps 2 - 5.

Tassimo Coffee Maker: Tell me how to operate it. I can fill the water, put the pod in and all the lights keep flashing. Pressing the start/stop button does nothing.


• All lights will blink the first time you turn on your
machine. This is your cue to prepare your machine for use by
following the quick instructions in Step 1 on separate insert.
• If the water level runs low while you are preparing a
beverage, all lights will flash. Simply remove and refill the
water container, and brewing will continue automatically
where it left off. It should not be necessary to discard the T-DISC
and start over.
• The AUTO light will blink throughout the brewing process.
Some drinks require a pause in brewing as part of the recipe
for brewing your perfect cup - this is to allow the optimal flavors
to unfold and is a normal part of the brewing process. The AUTO
light will continue to blink throughout this process.

HOW TO MAKE A DRINK
• Place the mug of your choice on the cup stand.
• When the STANDBY light illuminates, insert the T-DISC® of your choice
and close the clamp.
• The HEATING light will blink as the brewer heats the water to the
optimal temperature for your drink.
• Once the proper temperature is reached, the AUTO light will
illuminate. When it lights up, press the start/stop button to begin
the brew cycle.
• The AUTO light will continue to flash throughout the brewing cycle.
PLEASE NOTE: Some beverages have a pause in brewing
after the initial influx of water into the T-DISC®.
• The MANUAL light will illuminate when your drink is ready.

Braun Tassimo 3107 or 3701


Yessir, you need a t-disc to use it, because the machine reads the bar code that is imprinted on the aluminum lid of the t-disc to get instructions of how hot the water should be, and how much water should be used for the beverage you're qnting to prepare. no t-disc, no drink, no working machine. it's that simple.

Braun Tassimo Type 3107


I found that most problems around the tassimo relate to the peircing mechanism being clean and properly in place (it moves sometimes when you open the lid), or that the "window" that reads the barcode needs to be kept clean. When i've gotten all lights blinking or going right to manual, I have found cleaning the window seems to fix the problem more often than not.

hope that helps

Mine sometimes does this but cleaning the barcode reader at the top of the machine (small glass panel) fixed it. Also make sure the water container is seated correctly. If these dont fix it try pushing the water container left right/back front while there is a disc in the machine-mine has started to only work if I push the fitted water container backwards when "brewing".Its out of warranty now so I will make do until it breaks completely.
