ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans

SOURCE: self clean light keeps blinking

Hello guindonlm,
I recently had this similar problem. Try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

SOURCE: Blinking on/off light won't turn off

It means it's time to "decalcify" your machine. Not sure how to do that, I assume run vinegar or something like that through it. You can turn the blinking light off by holding down the "set clock" and the "set timer" buttons at the same time.

Why does red light keeps flashing on dolce gusto mini me ?


In my case it was a minor detail: The capsule holder tray has a small magnet on the top right side, you can feel a light pull when you are inserting it in the machine. This magnet became dislodged from the capsule holder, and the machine won't operate and will give you a continuous blinking red light if the magnet is not in place; I found it when emptying a small bin where I put the used capsules. You just have to put it back in place with two drops of glue, or if you can't find it, just order a new capsule holder.

The picture shows the underside of the capsule holder and the magnet next to the slot it came from.

There is a red light flashing thru all the icons underneath the controls


Run the hot water tap until the lights stop blinking. It is asking for the water circuit to be primed IIRC.

I have a DCR902T coffee maker. The red ON/OFF light is continually blinking, and pressing the ON/OFF button does not turn it off. Disconnecting the coffee maker does not change the problem. No idea what...


This is telling you that it is time to clean the coffee maker. Press the minute and hour buttons at the same time and hold untl the light stops flashing. Take out the water filter and fill the water tank to 10 cups and add 2 cups of white vinegar. Put the water tank back in, without the water filter. Take out the permenant coffee filter. Turn it on and leave it until about half the water goes through. Turn it off. Let it sit for about an hour, then finish the job. Then, run 2 pots of clean water through. You are good. It will notify you to clean your system every 40 pots or so.

When machine turns on, red light blinks, no cycle


Hi
If it won't cycle and the red light blinks, it means that something is out of place. Usually its the drip tray not all the way in. It could be the brew unit is not locked in or the dredge drawer. Push the drip tray towards the back when the machine is on and see if it wants to cycle, then check the other ones until it does.

Flashing red light


This is the machine's way of indicating that it is time to de-scale. It simply counts the number of times that it has been used to brew coffee, and after a set number of cycles, the light begins to blink. It does not interfere with performance, but it can be a major pain to tell when it is on/off.

To de-scale, they recommend you run a solution of citric acid through the coffee maker (diluted vinegar would probably work just as well), followed by three cycles of plain water to clear any leftover solution.

To get the red light to stop flashing, you need to press the "prog" and "drip/auto" buttons at exactly the same time. You don't need to hold them down, just need to time the press at exactly the same time. This resets the counter.

COFFE MACHIEN WON'T MAKE COFFEE


Hi
A blinking red light means that something is not in place. The usual subject is the drip tray. If it doesn't lock into place usually there are grounds behind it. The brew unit is an other one that doesn't lock in every time. To check, open the door and without pushing the "press" button, grab the handle and pull. If it comes out, that was your problem.

Cleaning light will not quit blinking after cleaning


The same thing happened to our Mr. Coffee this week! I followed the instructions about running vinegar through, then rinsing several times with water. However, the light would not stop blinking. We did by-pass the light by setting the timer for delayed brewing and it worked. However, that blinking light came on again. Then, my husband tired the vinegar wash again but instead of doing it one time, he ran the same vinegar through 6 times until the light went out! Then he proceeded with the water rinse. Our Mr. Coffee is working again!
