Red Light 28 is flashing even when dregs are emptied

I empty the used coffee pucks and wash off all the removable parts but when I put it all back together, red light #28 flashes telling me to empty the dregs container.

Check the edge of the container that goes in to the machine there is a small part that sticks out, it is possible that that piece is not touching the microswitch in the machine. Remove the drain tray and the dregs tray, check the corners of the machine for loose coffee grounds.

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.

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

I have a message that reads Dregdrawer full but it is empty


the machine is counting how many coffee is made,and then it's showing that dreg drawer is full. If you empty it before the machine showing that's full -machine don't know that you are empty it.Now you have to remove dreg drawer for 10 seconds and then put it back!

How does a Saeco Magic De Luxe Espress machine know the dregs drawer needs the be emptied and turns on the light? Does is just count the pucks that are put into the drawer or is there some type of sensor?


Simple answer is it counts how many coffees have been made. If you turn the machine off and then empty the dredge drawer the machine doesn't know this. and the light will remain on. Leaving the machine on when you empty the drawer lets the machine know that you emptied it (15 seconds out) and it will turn the light off.

What does it mean when the green LED light and the alarm light are both permanently on at the same time. There is a full tank of water, service door has been opened and shut and the dreg drawer is empty...


Hi, Turn off the machine and turn back on again. If both lights are permanently on that means you need to empty the dreg tray. Pull out the tray and wait until the red light start flashing, then put back the tray, the red light will go off.
Another meaning is when you press the coffee button and see the red light came on, that means the grinder motor is not working. Hope it will help.

Hi, I have a Saeco Talea Giro Plus machine and have only used it a few times. Now the alarm light is permanently on, but the machine has enough coffee and water and the drip tray and dregdrawer are empty....


Hi Natasja, try pull out the driptray and dreg draw while the machine is on and wait about 10 secs. When the red light start flashing, put the parts back. The red light should dissappear. Good luck.

Red ! light comes on and will not work


If it is a steady light water tank is not properly in OR dregs counting and drip tray is full. Pull out the drip tray and wait for the red light changes in to flashing, then put back the drip tray.

Machine won't work due to dreg drawer


Check to see if your machine has an "exit chute" or similar area where from the used pucks are ejected. The area might be clogged with used coffee grinds and causing a false reading from the machine.

Dregs light stays on (even when emptied!) - can't use machine


the various lights are controlled by either magnets that hit various sensors or microswitches.

the dreg light i'm pretty sure is a microswitch.

Its pretty common for them to go out, they're standard in almost all super automatic machines.

that particular switch is a pain in the **** to get to. You can order them direct from saeco, but if you can, it may be easier to send it out.

There should be a microswitch for the grind box, for the drip tray, for the water tank, and there should be one if i remember right for the grinder.

Its different for each model.

Hope this helps.

ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans
