Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine
The central unit (CU) warning light started flashing after machine start up. It was running OK the previous day. I removed, cleaned and reinstated the CU.
The CU warning light continues to 'flash' after the CU has been replaced. Overriding the micro switches for the door and grounds container, I can toggle the CU micro switch but this appears to have no affect on the warning light; it continues to flash. I suspect the CU microswitch has failed. Any other suggestions before I start pulling apart the machine? How do I access the CU microswitch?
I am a qualified electrician so replacement should be easy enough?

Not sure which light you are refering to because the far right light shuld be temp ready light. The one you describe slunds like the descale light but that shouold be second to from the left. In which case it is telling you to descale. I can't attach a manual here so do a search for saeco repair and an authorized repair center should be able to get you one.

Sound like descaling warning light, need to run descaling solution through the machine (follow instructions, you can download a manual on saeco's website) this light can be turned off by pressing and holding the steam button for 5 seconds.

Switch off the machine.
Pour a descaling product into the water tank.
Switch the machine on to the programming mode(see below). Place a large container under the steam/hot water dispensing tube and open the steam/hot water knob slowly, turning it counterclockwise.
Turn on the machine by pressing the main switch and let the descaling product flow out of the dispensing tube for approx. 1 min.
Close the knob again.
Turn off the machine with the main switch and let the solution take effect for approx. 5 minutes.
Repeat this procedure two or three times, to allow all of the descaling product in the water tank to flow out of the dispensing tube.
As soon as descaling has been carried out, rinse the tank thoroughly and fill it with fresh water.
Switch on the machine and let fresh water (approx. 2 l) flow out of the steam/hot water dispensing tube in order to rinse away residue.
The machine is now ready for operation.
When the machine is on, the warning light switches off automatically, by pressing the steam selection button for at least 5 seconds.
To enter the programming mode, turn the machine
off with the main switch.
Press steam , espresso coffee and the
main switch at the same time.
Release the buttons.
Hope this will help you.
