SOURCE: hi I have a problem

First unplug the machine from power outlet and let it remain in that way for 30 minutes.Then reconnect and see if this is helping.This is reset procedure.----------------- Fill tank icon flashes (red) when the removable water tank needs to be refilled. Remove the water tank, fill with water and replace it on your TASSIMO machine. ------------ Descale icon lights up (red) when your TASSIMO machine needs to be descaled. Descale your appliance in accordance with the instructions provided under "Descaling". ---------- How to Descale:-- Your TASSIMO machine has an automatic descaling program. If Descale icon lights up while the appliance is on, the descaling program must be run immediately. If the descaling process is not run as instructed, the appliance may become damaged. ---------- Descaling agents (not vinegar-based) can be obtained from various retailers or from TASSIMO or Bosch Customer Service Department at 1-877-TDISCS1 (1-877-8-771) or on CAUTION:---Do not drink the liquids.Never interrupt the descaling program. Never use vinegar or vinegar-based products.------- Note: Only for machines with water filter It is essential to remove the filter holder with the filter cartridge before running the descaling program. ----------------- Running the descaling program.Remove the water tank from your TASSIMO machine and take the Service T DISC out. Insert it in the brewing unit with the barcode face down, and close the clamp down firmly. Prepare descaling solution (not vinegarbased) according to the manufacturer's instructions. If you cannot find an appropriate descaling agent at various retailers, it is available through TASSIMO or Bosch Customer Service Department. Replace the water tank containing the descaling solution back on the machine. Remove the cup stand and place a suitable container (min. 17 oz / 500 ml capacity) under the drink outlet. Press and hold the start/stop button for at least 3 seconds to start the descaling program.The program now proceeds automatically and Descale and O Automatic lights flash. (Duration approx. 20 minutes). The descaling solution is pumped through the appliance at intervals and then runs into the container until the water tank is almost empty. A little liquid is always left in the tank. Stand-by icon will light up after approx. 20 minutes of running descaling program. Empty the container and replace it under the drink outlet. Rinse the water tank thoroughly and fill up to the MAX mark with fresh water. Replace it back onto your TASSIMO machine. Open and close the brewing unit keeping the Service T DISC in place on the T DISC holder and press the start/stop button. The machine will rinse itself. Once one cycle is complete, press the button again repeating 4 more times. The descaling process is complete. Now open the brewing unit, remove the Service T DISC and store it in the compartment at the back of the machine.----------- Note: For machines with water filter Place the filter holder with the filter cartridge into the water tank. Your TASSIMO machine is ready for use again. ----------- But if its not possible to start the desacale or if you have not done the descalling cycle when the machine indicated to do so then the fill tank and descale light both will blink and machine will get stuck in stand by mode.In that case There is an error on the machine.The machine has to be resetted,Contact the TASSIMO or Bosch Customer Service Department at 1-877-TDISCS1 or (1-877-834-7271). -------------- Also see in the water tank.There is a float.If that float is stuck then water fill icon light will blink.With your hand release that float in water tank.Then see.If the float is release and not stuck,still the both lights blinking then yes machine is got in the stand by mode and needs resetting by the service center. ---------------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

When I plug in the machine all of the lights just flash and nothing else happens

unplug unit and throughly clean unit, especially the bar code reader window. Take apart the piercing nipple assembly and make sure it is not clogged either. Use the cleaning disk and descale the unit quarterly as this prevents build ups in the brewing system

Espresso and Longo buttons flash simultaneously and continuously

Try holding both buttons down while you turn the machine on until they stop flashing - usually about 5 seconds. This will reset the machine to its factory settings. Hope this helps.

When you press the coffee button , and the top and bottom lights are flashing, that means the grinder is either jammed or out of order. If the machine is less than 2 years old, the service center will replaced it under warranty.

ERR 4 in a Kitchenaid coffee maker indicates a button is stuck in place. Please be sure to check all of your buttons and see if any are stuck depressed into the machine.

If this is not the case, I would suggest contacting Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what other options may be available.
