SOURCE: red blinking light on krups coffee maker

It means your water filter needs to be replaced. I wouldn't know this either as I found my coffee maker in a thrift shop, but I read it on Epinions a few minutes ago in a review.

Have you had any problems with splashing when brewing - some of the water missing the spout? I lose up to a cup of water and I'm stumped. The goldtone filter has to be pushed to go down into the unit, does this mean I'm putting it too far in and screwing up the stop n pour or something?

SOURCE: self clean light keeps blinking

Hello guindonlm,
I recently had this similar problem. Try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

Try to clip off the tray contacts and clean behind them. If they are dirty and wet on the backside the machine will keep asking you for Empty tray. Use a small screwdriver and clip them off from the inside of the tray

SOURCE: Hello, My Krups coffee maker keeps flashing the no

It sounds like the water sensor has gone out, that is probably causing a short that is preventing the pot from tuning on. If the sensor is not bad then it is probably a short in the circuit board itself. You will need to contact krups to have it replaced under warranty. If it's not under warranty then check with a small appliance shop for an estimate, however in most cases it is just cheaper to scrap it and buy a new coffee pot.

SOURCE: Both the top alarm light for empty grounds in

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.

Saeco coffee machine with a red blinking exclamation point light won't make coffee, how do I fix it?


When the red exclamation point is flashing slow, something is not where it is supposed to be, bean hopper lid, door, brew mech, water tank empty, dregs box or water tray on dregs container is full. If the red exclamation point is flashing quickly, open the steam valve for pump priming. If pump turns on, and water passes correctly, the light should go off and return to heating stage. If not, we have a blockage or a pump that is not working correctly.

Trouble with Saeco Vienna Deluxe


It sounds like you are doing everything right.

From what i have read, a lot of people have had the problem of the red light coming on and staying solid.
When they called to find out what to do they were told to clean out their machines.

I would take the whole machine apart (all of the parts you are supposed to), empty all the beans and all the water. Then try putting it all back together. Remember to prime and see what happens.

Sorry that i can't be more of a help. Others have completely taken the machine apart and emptied all the beans and water, and when they put it back together it worked for them.

If this doesn't work i would phone the company and see if its still covered under the warranty.

Good Luck

My tray is empty and clean but empty tray keeps coming up


Hi Shoba
Photo sensor or switch is blocked.
Not sure if yours is an Infra Red beam or switch
Clean & inspect with flashlight
Look for light path (blocked) or moveable part (switch)

Actually.... it must use an Infrared Light Emmiter to shine through the grounds holder to the sensor on the other side/

10 Minute Fix.... I hope

Right red light is blinking all the time


Alarm LED:
• Permanently on (one or more causes): No coffee left, water tank is empty, empty the residual water
tray is full (in this case the dreg drawer also has to be emptied to prevent problems).
• Flashing slowly (one or more causes): Brewing unit is missing, dreg drawer has not been inserted,
coffee container cover has not been inserted, service door is open, rotary knob for opening the hot
water / steam is not in the right position.
• Flashing rapidly:Ventilate the water system

Clean instructions


First, let me clarify what the red light indicates.

A solid red light indicates the cleaning cycle is in progress. A blinking red light indicates the coffeemaker is off, but due to be cleaned. When the coffeemaker is due to be cleaned, the red light will continue to blink while the coffeemaker is off until the cleaning cycle has been completed fully. The entire cleaning process takes about an hour and a half. And, it is not intuitive. So, here are my instructions.

With the coffeemaker off (with the red light blinking), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Don't short the amount. You'll need four cups to complete the cycle. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

Barista supremo thinks it doesn't have coffee beans


http://www.espressotec.com/media/downloads/57/SA1260_Odea_Giro_plus_manual.pdf The red light comes on, doesn't it? The light indicates that the water tank could be empty or the drip tray is full. Tell the coffee machine that it has enough beans, but to please the machine you will fill the water tank and empty the drip tray. Good luck, kolbrun

I have the Vienna Superautomatica. It turns on, the green "on" light ilights the red light blinks on and off. The grind button has no effect. Nothing is clogging the grinder - sometimes there...


Hi
Blinki9ng red light usually something is not in place. The water tank empty. grinder empty or cloged, the brew unit not seated, dredge drawer not in place, or the usual cluprit is the drip tray. There can be something behind the drip tray that is keeping it from seating ( it has to lock into the 2 holes in the bottom of the base) Try to push the drip tray in and down and see if it will work.
