Looks like you need to descale your machine. A good cleaner is CLR. Follow the instructions on the bottle. If you don't want to purchase that, use white vinegar. Fill up the reservoir and run a brew cycle after letting sit for 20 mins. Make sure u run clean water threw at least 3 cycles once done

SOURCE: Program light and time flash once per second

Here's the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www.cuisinart.com/share/man/34_man.pdf The water filter should be fine - if not it should be obvious to the eye that it is blocked/restricted - hold it up to the light. Try running through the descaling procedure in the manual if you havent recently - if it doesnt let you run a cycle, try it overnight without running it, and see if it will let you run a vinegar cycle in the morning. Try and pour vinegar into all the parts you can where it would go if a cycle was able to be run. If that doesn't get it running, check that none of the program/time setting features are still on - they should turn off after a few seconds, but maybe it is stuck in "time set" mode or similar. If none of the actions in the manual change the setting, try unplugging the unit and leaving it for at least half an hour unplugged, then hold down the power button when you plug it back in - this should reset the machine. If the reset doesn't work, it sounds like you have a control board fault - best solution is to contact cuisinart; http://www.cuisinart.com/contact/ Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: Coffee bean light won't go out when full and coffee won't work

Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think
After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly
Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best.

My Saeco xsmall plus espresso machine is flashing red light on it


Owning this machine for nearly five years, all I can say is that it is an example of problematic engineering. It does not except dark roast some of the time, and if it is very well roasted it won't accept it at all. As the machine is fully automatic, there is not much you can do but roast the coffee to a degree that will be accepted by the machine. IMHO this is an unacceptable decision made by engineers and Saeco should address this issue.

Red light won't stop flashing. Parts are in place


Be sure all coffee grounds are cleaned from beneath the water tray and the grounds tray and the coffee brew group. We had the same problem but finally redid everything, including cleaning the coffee brew group under hot water, drying and replacing carefully until it clicked in place. The moving parts of brew group have to be in exactly the right place. Good luck!

Won't even turn on. Was flashing cup size lights on left & right and I turned it off and later tried to turn it on and it won't turn on.


Hi,

The problem is often that the machine develops a leak in the hose that is rightover the transformer...the water drips onto the transformer and kills that...then you have no power to run the machine.

Here is a tip that I wrote about this problem...
