The magnet inside the float loses its magnetism with age.

Buy a replacement on eBay for a few bucks.

You cannot repair it, but the machine will continue to work fine without it - you just won't get a signal when your water is about to run out.

I have a Saeco Incanto classic, the low water light is on, tank is full, and I have steam coming from the steam wand.


try descaling the machine it could be that the water level switch is clogged with water calcium and not lifting when water is added, or it is defective and needs replacement. I hope this was helpful.

Why does my em69 coffee machine red light stay on?


There is most likely a problem with the magnet in the water tank and the machine thinks it is empty. New magnets are available in eBay for around $10.

Low water warning light flashing when water level is not low


The water level sensor is based on a floating magnet. The magnet breaks out of it's holder in the water tank. Remove the water tank via the door on the back of the machine, tip the water out (and the magnet will probably come out too). Put the magnet back in the housing down near the water valve, and wedge the black lid on with a bit of plastic. Refill and enjoy coffee.

... or put some black tape over the red light.

Water light not going out, even when full. Not able to make coffee


the water tank has a float inside, the float has a magnet. the machine senses the position of the magnet and indicates water ok/not. sometimes the magnet rusts inside the plastic casing, renders it less magnetic so it wont work. or the float is missing- fell out while you were cleaning the tank. you will need a new magnetic float to fix the problem.

All light flashing in my tassimo coffee machine noise as it will start but do not start'


Check the owner's manual and see if there is a reset button. If not then make sure that the cup that holds the grounds is fitting secu rely, If it's not in just right it will not allow the machine to start. These are simple ideas that you've probably tried but I hope they help.

Sunbeam cafe series EM 6910 coffee machine little red light keeps flashing


That's the low water warning, triggered by a black float with a magnet inside, in the water container.

The magnet inside the float in the water tank loses its magnetism with age.

Buy a replacement on eBay for a few bucks.

You cannot repair it, but the machine will continue to work fine without it - you just won't get a signal when your water is about to run out.

All the lights on my machine are flashing. What


I had flashing lights in my braun tassimo and tried all previous solutions
Cleaned the barcode reader
Seated the water container properly
The problem was down to the flosting magnet in the water container (which was floating when filled)
The magnet had lost its strength somehow, so i held a strong magnet from from a fish tank cleaner at the back whilst the water container was in and it worked perfect
Inside the machine is a sensor which detects the magnet that floats in the water container
I am looking for a new magnet and will keep you informed if it worked when i get one
Good luck from Ash

All the lights are flashing on my Braun Tassimo TA1200 and will not make coffee


Several possibilities: (1) No water in tank.
(2) Tank not inserted properly. Try removing tank and then replacing it, making sure that the hook-tab at the back of the tassimo body engages the matching slot at the front of the tank.
(3) Tank not seated properly. Try pressing down on the tank and twisting left or right. If this stops the blinking and allows your drink to brew, at least you know where the problem is. If you have to do this all the time, consider exchanging the unit.
(4) The lights will all also blink if there is residue (coffee, milk, etc) on the bar code reader window. The residue is usually plainly visible. The bar code reader window is a horizontal rectangel directly under where the bar code of the T-Disc sits in the Tassimo. To fix this, just wipe the window clean (no need to scrub), close the lid again and check for blinking.

Krups XP9000 won't recognise water tank is full


I have just had the same problem with my Krups XP7240 and I discovered (quite by accident!) that it was the magnetic float inside the water tank which was causing it. I think the float must have let some water in and always stayed on the bottom even when the tank was full. As the float was in an enclosed plastic column it was a bit hard to access, but through sheer desperation I snapped a plastic fork in half and wedged the handle section under the float to keep it off the bottom and this works nicely. It is not professional by any means but I was quite pleased with my innovation :)

The only down side to this 'method' is that the opposite is now true and when the tank is empty it doesn't register so you would really have to keep an eye on the water level to avoid killing the element completely.

I would imagine that the only professional way to get this sorted out is to replace the tank (or float if it is accessible?). Good luck!!
