Question about Krups Palatino 905-42 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

No heating when I switch the machine on, it makes the usual noises (normal I presume) and right after that, the second LED starts blinking (waiting for the water in the boiler to heat up) I checked the heating element but that is oke.(measured it and connected it to the mains directly.(got hot). However, I dont get any volts from the electronics and I can't quit figure out how it is powered. ( I am a technician) hope you can help me. Greetings, ps, checked all the micro switches .

    I have the same problem - the unit never heats up as designed and indicated by the continuous blinking light. I have the whole thing apart looking for a thermal fuse. Can you give me some direction? I clearly see the steam chamber on the right and a separate heating element/chamber on the left. I identified an inline fust but I checked continuity and it was fine. WHERE IS THE THERMAL FUSE?

I woke up this morning to the same problem! I called my brother who has fixed these in the past and he said it's probably the THERMAL FUSE. Hope that helps. He said it's about a 20 minute project to replace the fuse.

I have a Nespresso Lattisima and all four lights are blinking four times in quick succession and nothing is working. I've tried emptying it out and it's done that, but still the same problem.


Your machine has almost certainly entered the water quality mode. (Water hardness setting). This is very easy to fix. Switch machine off. Before switching back on press and hold any off the following buttons: Latte Macchaito (top right) for soft water, Cappuccino (bottom right) for medium water or finally both of them for hard water. While holding the correct buttons switch the machine back on BUT hold for approx. 10 seconds or until all lights stop flashing, (APART FROM THE BUTTON YOUR HOLDING). This will reset the machine and you're good to go. Regards Coffee Engineer!

Turn on switch but no noise as before when machine starts up


Hi
Check to make sure that everything is in place. The main culprit is usually the drip tray, or the brew unit.

New to expresso machine - Cuisinart EM100c


This is a very loud machine. Here's the normal operation: You turn it on, and wait a few minutes for it to heat up, at which point the heating light will go off. Then make sure the function knob is turned to coffee, and it will start brewing. At first, it will make a short (loud) sound and then stop for a second. The purpose behind this is that the machine is pre-wetting the coffee, so that steam can more easily shoot through it in a couple of seconds. Then the loud noise will start again and run continuously until you turn the function knob back to the center. So, the sounds you were hearing were normal. There is a delay between when you hear the sounds and the water starts flowing out. If the coffee is pressed down (tamped) too hard, that delay will be longer. Hope this helps. You made a much better choice purchasing this machine rather than the more expensive EM-200, in my opinion.

No Pictre, Flashing Power LED - Philips 42PFP5532D Plasma


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details of many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

When i start wash. machi. pump starts and few sec.later led flash


Check the water supplies at the back, if the valve is opening, and the water is getting into the machine, it can be a faulty water level switch, or membrane sensor, depending on the model.

A faulty or clogged inlet valve can also close few seconds from opening the valve, usually becausu of a faulty solenoid.

If valve and water level switch are ok, then this is a faulty control.

Have valve and water level switch checked first.

Stops while driving


this is usually due to a dirty throttle body. just beware if you do try to clean it you will need to preform the idle relearn procedure. this does work, ive done it personally.

A. Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning Procedure.
1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds (how would you know if you get it right?)


B. Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning
1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.
3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound (i never get this right because i never heard anything)

C. Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)
It's best to time with a watch/clock.

1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.
2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops
blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11 Wait 20 seconds
12Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications. (this is fine because SES light lets you know if you did it right the way it blinks)

Toshiba power led flashing yellow


This flashing LED usually means only two things, both are quite harmless:

1. Some laptops will flash the power LED when battery is charging. If this is the case, it should stop when battery is fully charged. This can be presumed if the laptop starts normally while LED flashes. If not, suspect step 2 below:

2. Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.

If this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)

good luck.
