Float in the water reservoir no longer floats. Therefore, get "message fill with water" but already full.

    I have the same problem. It's not that the float is stuck, it's that it doesn't float!

    I actually managed to remove it from the machine and put it in a glass of water, and it just sinks right to the bottom.

I poured vinegar in the reservoir and it dislodged the float. I then was able to fill the system by pushing the steam button. THen I ran the vinegar through the system. Saved me $220. Yippie!

Krups espresso machine keep asking me fill up the water tank even it is already...


Inside the water tank there is a magnetic float which is causing the problem. This float is moving always on the top of the water tank as you fill it with water and in reverse as the water level goes down then the float is moving down to bottom also. So as the magnetic float is moving up and down is giving the signal for the water level if it is full or empty.
So possibly now the float is stuck in the bottom and even if you have refill the tank this is still on the bottom of the tank. This can happen from many reasons.

First could be that the plastic column that the float is moving is full of scale and it can not move up and down freely any more so you can clean it from scale by decaling it and even clean it with a wire brush.


A second possibility could be that float have a tiny hole and some water enter in the float and this make it to stay on the bottom of the tank. You can visually inspect it and if possible you can dry out the water and weld with a super glue the hole if possible, if it cannot be fixed then you need a new float.
If you want to fix it temporary until you find a new float you can use a plastic clip or similar to secure it always on the top however you when the tank is empty it doesn't register so you would really have to keep an eye on the water level to avoid any other problems with the machine.
Good luck

Fill water tank display And its already full


The float in the tank is probably no longer floating. New tank or shove something plastic under the float to lift it up.

How do I disable the low water warning on a Krups coffee maker?


Locate the float in the tank that is no longer floating and jam something plastic underneath it so that it will communicate to the float sensor that there is water in the tank.

Hi, My Solis master 5000 digital is having a problem. When we turn it on it says water tank is empty even when the tank is full. Thank you!


Check the water reservoir, if there is a float in the corner. Then that piece is not getting in contact with the reed switch in the machine. Try sliding the reservoir down the back of the machine so that it is always in contact with the back, or if the float is not rising when the reservoir is filled with water then the reed switch cannot detect the magnet in there. You might need a new float assembly.

The machine will say Fill water tank. So, we will take the container out of the machine fill it to or just a little above the recommended line and then put it back into the machine. It will be full and it...


After filling the water tank, can you see if a grey plastic piece, in the back of the water tank, is floating?. If no, then that part needs to be replaced. If it does float, then the integrity of the water sensor, (located in the back of where the water tank is housed into), will need to be tested. Testing this sensor requires, tricking the coffee maker... that the door is closed. With Coffee Maker in the "ON" position, you will need to hold door switch in (located top right corner of unit, with door opened). As switched is held in, you will need to use a magnet and place it around the rear of where the water tank is housed into (Rear-left middle height area)... just around where the water tank float would be, if it were filled with water and inserted into the coffee maker. This sensor isn't visible, but is activated when a magnet is placed around it. If "FILL WATERTANK" message goes away, then replace plastic float or water tank itself.

Add Water


Turns out I finally called Keurig and explained the problem (says to add water when water container is already full...) and they told me that it was most likely an issue with the water container. They sent me a new water container about a month ago and it looks as though the problem has been solved!! Solution: Call Keurig and get a new water container!!!!
