Tassimo low water light will not reset

The problem is because Tassimo water tanks have a floating magnet in them which operates the water level switch inside the body. The magnet gets weak over time. Replacement tanks cost too much to be worth the cost. The simple answer is to stick a fridge magnet on the back of the unit (just above the power switch) using blue tack or similar (you can experiment to find the right position). Our unit has been working fine like this for a few years now. :-)

Where is the barcode n the reader

open up the top of your machine where you put your disc, there will be a small rectangular piece of glass on the 'floor' of that opening, that your barcode reader. If you can't see it look at the barcodes on your coffee discs and 'pretend' to put in the disc wherever the barcode meets the 'floor' is where the barcode scanner is. just wipe with a damp cloth and dry. job done

Braun tassimo does not recognise cleaning disc, but does work wit coffee pod!

The problem is that the barcode on the cleaning disk is recessed unlike those on the pods. It seems that the reader has difficulty reading the barcode that is slightly further away than normal.

I've had this problem this afternoon and solved it by carefully peeling off the barcode from the cleaning disk and "fattening it up" with foam tape then re-applying to the plastic cleaning disk. Works perfectly now, just as well as I was close to throwing the whole machine at the wall.

Hope this helps someone

When the water heats up the light for "auto" never lights up. Just the "manuel" light goes on...and I have to hold the "manuel" button on to brew a cup

Clean the barcode reader. If the little window has spills or coffee grounds on it then it wont read. The default for no barcode is the "manual" light

Help! all the lights on my tassimo keep flashing and the machine wont work.

Try wiping off the barcode reader window under where the t-disc barcode sits.

All the lights come on. There is water, and

4 lights blinking can also mean that the barcode reader window, right under where the barcode falls, has coffee, milk, etc on it. Wipe, re-close on the t-disc, and lights go out.

Braun Tassimo Machine willnot read the bar code on the T-discs

I have the same problem, I have been totally unable to clean the fog completely, instead I rub a tiny bit of cooking oil on it and it clears and will read barcodes again. Only a short term fix though.

Braun Tassimo Type 3107

I found that most problems around the tassimo relate to the peircing mechanism being clean and properly in place (it moves sometimes when you open the lid), or that the "window" that reads the barcode needs to be kept clean. When i've gotten all lights blinking or going right to manual, I have found cleaning the window seems to fix the problem more often than not.

hope that helps

Tassimo coffee machine doesn't brew automatically

You have to clean the barcode-reader window. Very easy, just wipe it with a cloth. (It's the window just under the piercing unit thingy.)
