Question about Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine
Coffee machine ran out of water, when filled back up, low water light won't go off now not able to make coffee, machine thinks it is still empty.
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.

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.

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.

Go into the menu.
Scroll with the arrows on the panel until you get to "Direct Water Connection".
Push the menu button, and chose "OFF", then push the menu button again, then esc. button twice and it should go away.

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.
