Getting ''Fill Water'' message even though Tank is full
I keep getting the ''Fill Tank with Water'' error message even though I've refilled the tank. And waited several minutes before turning on the machine. I've even tried unplugging the machine before turning it on again.

This looks like a fault. The plastic tank has two reed switches that measure 'tank empty' and 'tank half full'. When the tank is empty the inlet solenoids (there are 2 for safety) open and water enters the tank but not so much to fill the tank to the half way level. In normal operation the level water in the tank will drop and then more water is allowed in. In your case it appears the 'half full' reed switch is being activated because the solenoids are not closing off properly and water is leaking in and filling the tank. If you do not empty it then eventually it will fill and leak into the leak. The problem can be caused by either low water pressure (below 145 psi) or sticky solenoid. If is the solenoid then the Miele solution will be to replace both solenoids. Alternately you may be able to remove, take apart and clean. Also check that you have a mesh filter at connection to tap. Also you can temporarily fix the problem by turning off the water at the tap and re-programming machine to 'turn off' the plumed water line. regards
Your machine has a magnet that floats in the water tank. If the magnet is not floating when you have water in the tank then you need to replace the magnet. You can also try to clean the magnet before replacing. It may be dirty and tends to stick to the water tank.
This is what it looks like. http://www.cerinicoffee.com/item.asp?PID=1318
There is a magnet fitted in the side of the tank. Lift out the tank and make sure the magnet is free to move. It might be that some water has been spilt onto it and it's crusted up. Failing that, suspect a faulty microswitch inside.
The black thing floating in the water tank is a plastic shell with a magnet inside. If you clean it...make sure you reinstall it with the tapered (smaller) side down. There is a slight size difference BUT it will make ALL the difference in the world.
I had no idea there was a magnet in that black/greyish case. The direction of the casing is important. I had the same problem and that solved it!
