Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine Control Panel Doesn't Work

The lights on the control panel do not light up when pressed. Machine will prime, but does not brew coffee. Can the machine be fixed easily or is it not fixable? Do you know how much it might cost to fix the control panel?

    There are lights that light up on the top row. The water light comes on when the temperature is hot enough. The water light will come on if the tank is empty. But no grinding or brewing. Not sure how to use the bypass.

    Solution #1 is a good start. If that works you are in luck.

    If not...

    Is the cup warming surface of the machine working? The cup warmer has to be working for the grinder to work. This will help determine why the grinder is not working.

    For the bypass...The bypass button has s symbol that looks like a coffee scoop. To brew using bypass, press the bypass button and put one scoop (1 Tbsp) of ground coffee in the bypass chute. The chute is about half way back on the right side of the machine and has a small rectangular lid which lifts off. The press the desired coffee size. This will help determine what the problem with the brew group is.

    Do you have any lights on the top row of the machine that are lite?

  • John May 11, 2010

    I need more information to determine what's going on. Does the display light up or is it dead? Does the the grinder work? Can you brew coffee with the bypass?

    Board failures are very rare so that's the last place to look.

    We repair these machines in the Houston area and the average cost to repair is under $100 if that is any help.

    A cpu board for the machine might run for about $280 thats a rough estimate.

Do you have any of the left 3 lights on the top row? If you have the one that looks like 2 arrows pointing towards each other do this

Brew group missing indicator
Open the door on the right. Push on the upper left side of the brew unit until you hear a click. Close the door and see if the message is gone. If it is make sure that the grounds drawer is in place.
Tip: Pull the grounds drawer out, then push it back with only 1 finger and push it on the right side of the drawer. This will make sure that it engages the micro switch.

Saeco Magic De Luxe dregs light problem

Make sure that both the tray and dump box are placed correctly- otherwise the machine will not start. Both have a switch and when that switches are not engaged, the machine will not turn on.

From 1-7 on the coffee grinder, which is the finest grind.I Hve misplaced my manual

1 would be the finest. I wouldn't recommend going under 2 though.

You risk clogging your grinder and machine under 2. There's also a dosage control when you open the door on the side. + means a bigger dosage or puck.

Hope this helps.
