Question about Jura Capresso Impressa E8 Espresso/Coffee Maker

1 Answer

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!

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.

Our water is soft and does not require salt. how do we stop the red light


I think it might depend on the model # and it should be in your manual.

Example for a G858 SCVI plus instructions (without pictures) are;

Bypassing the salt indicator

If your water is soft (below 8 gr/gal) the
salt reservoir should not be filled with
salt. The indicator will remain lit and
should be disregarded or bypassed.

Remove the salt reservoir cap.

Looking into the salt reservoir, you will
see the top of the float chamber on the
right hand side, a.

Using a screwdriver, carefully pivot
the float chamber towards the center
of the reservoir.

Using needle nose pliers, pull the
cap, b, off of the float chamber, and
remove the float, c.

Replace the float chamber cap, push
the chamber back into its upright position,
and replace the salt reservoir cap.
The "Salt" indicator should no longer be
lit.

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.

Full water indicator lit continuously even though


Problem was a stuck float in the small water reservoir to the rear left of the unit.. Remove top and left hand side panel. Small reservoir can be seen at the bottom left. Remove small screw and slide off the cable assembly above. You should then see into the reservoir and the float. Clean float and reservoir and reassemble.
