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.

SOURCE: Saeco Primea Cappuccino Ring--stuck on "boiler filling" mode!

Hello, I had the same problem, therefore the machine has gone to a repair centre. The problem is caused by a mechanical switch in the machine, that doesn't work properly. To repair it you've to open the machine completely, but that’s not easy. Because there is nothing broken you’ll should have warranty because it is a production failure. The solution in my case was to heat up the switch and push it a little together so that the contact works properly. It is the switch that you hear when you turn on the machine.

SOURCE: The Sensor Magnet for water tank does not float to the top

OK, first of all, I do not recommend my solution if you are forgetful or do not check your water level manually daily.

However, I found a super easy solution.

The way the unit works is to use a float in the water chamber with a magnet on the bottom. When their is enough water in the tank, the float rises and the magnet on the bottom floats to the top of the magnet chamber. When it floats up, it aligns with a sensor in the machine that allows the machine to operate. When the the water level lowers, so does the magnet and drops below the internal sensor disabling the machine with a "Fill Water Tank" error message.

To eliminate this error and allow the machine to operate, I simply popped off the lid to the magnet chamber with a butter knife and turned the water chamber up side down to let the magnet float fall out. Remember to empty the water first.

Here comes the highly technical part. Turn the magnet float upside down and slide it back into the float chamber. Since the actual magnet is on the bottom of the float it now is at the top allowing the internal sensor to turn off. No more error message!

The reason I do recommend this is because this completely defeats the purpose of the sensor and will most likely damage your machine if you run it without water. Keep you tank filled however and you will eliminate the frustration of a "float gone bad" keeping you from your morning caffeine.

Coffee bean light won't go out when full and coffee won't work


Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think
After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly
Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best.

My Keurig is only showing a blue light for the largest size coffee and is not giving enough water. The other lights do not light up anymore and when I press the large button, it doesn't even give me as...


1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

Not sure about why only one light comes on. Hope this helps some.

When I pour water into (empty) pot to fill. Bunn coffee maker


If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

I put water in after it was already brewing


This should never happen - when it's low on water it'll light the "fill water" indicator and not brew until it's filled - if you managed to somehow run a brew cycle with no water, then there is something wrong with your brewer.

Not brewing full pots of coffee


Check the in line water fliter. It may need to be changed.

You can try this also.

Put the brew basket in place with no coffee in it, put an empty decanter under the basket. take a full decanter and pour it in the water fill screen at the top of the unit. When the wtaer stops dripping and the unit is back up to temp, try a full brew cycle.

If it works OK, it just got low on water in the tank

Could be caused by a plugged up filter or lime scale build up.

Low water light stays on


If water light and heating lights go on and off, Try this: Fill water, turn water nozzle on, let water flow out. Water light should go off. Shut off water.
If coffee lights are solid, turn off the machine, let it cool off and try the above again.

Error message states no water, but there is...


Unplug the device and plug back in after 1 min. If it still fails, then you have a dirty water level sensor or the control circuit board is fried. Empty the water out and fill it with vinegar as full as you can without overflowing. Let it soak overnight and turn the machine on (without coffee in it). Turn off after 30 secs.Turn on again and allow it to finish the cycle.  Discard the vinegar. Run three more brewing cycles with water only and it will be OK to use. If this does not cure it, then the only cost effective way is to replace it.
