Make sure the machine is clean of coffee grinds. Mine has a nasty habit of dropping them behind the dregdrawer instead of in it. Remove the central unit and give it a good clean. The dregdrawer should then slide back fully into the microswitch.
If this doesn't work, you've probably got a dud microswitch.

I have a red light and nothing is working no cofee and no milk nothing

I have a Saeco Easy. Maybe the solution for my machine will help you. You did not specify which light is red I will assume it is the "Alarm" light.

Alarm light (looks like an "!" exclamation point)

• permanently on: signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full.

• slowly flashing: signals that the brew group is not inserted, the dregdrawer
is not inserted, the coffee bean hopper lid is not on, the service door is open
or the steam/hot water knob is not correctly turned to the desired position.

• quickly flashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit

How do i empty the dregdrawer on a saeco incanto de luxe? I am seeing the DREGDRAWER FULL message and cannot get out of it.

When you want to empty the grounds because it says to in the menu, REMEMBER TO LEAVE THE MACHINE ON when you remove the drawer. The machine is a counter and when it reaches the magic number for that machine the message comes on. If the machine is turned off when you pull the drawer out, the machine doesn't know this and the message will be there when you turn the machine back on. Also remember to leave the drawer out for at least 15 seconds or a little longer so the machine thinks you actually dumped the grounds.

I have a new machine where the Dregdraw Miss is displayed although the drawer is in place. any idea what the problem may be?

When you pull out the dregdraw you will see a small lug on the side which engaged the micro switch in the machine. Now use a small screwdriver or toothpick and push in the switch to see if itis working.
If it's still working you have to adjust the lug on the dregdraw by heating the plastic and pulling out a bit to engage the switch.
It can happen in the new machine.

Dregdrawer Full

There is no 'sensor' for this, an internal counter resets when you remove the drawer with the machine switched on and the "Dreg drawer Full" message displayed.
Make sure the machine displays this message "DREG DRAWER FULL" Do NOT turn off the machine, Pull out the drawer that the used grinds are dumped in(you have to remove the drip tray 1st) Check display - it should read "DREG DRAWER MISSING" If the display message is correct, wait 10 seconds then replace the drewer.
Message should be cleared.
If the "dreg drawer missing" does not display, you do have a bad sensor and machine needs to be serviced.
