Hi , sounds like the dump valve solenoid has failed or the valve on the base of the brewer has failed probably stuck,.which is the more likely culprit. let me know if you require more in depth help.
its not a problem that can be resolved by a novice.

SOURCE: Empty Drip Tray message

Try to clip off the tray contacts and clean behind them. If they are dirty and wet on the backside the machine will keep asking you for Empty tray. Use a small screwdriver and clip them off from the inside of the tray

Red warning light comes on in my saeco vienna deluxe I just aquired this unit and to date have not been able to make a cup of coffee. All the green lights light up and coffee starts grinding but after that...


Hi
More than likely your grind is to fine and you are using oily beans (shiney). There is a small knob in the bean hopper. turn it down to the minus side. Turn the big knob to the # 18. If that doesn't work you are going to have to take the grinder apart and clean it.

My Saeco magic grinds the beans, but no coffee comes out. Sometimes it makes one cup, and skips. Other times, I grind the equivalent of 8 cups of coffee without any cups of coffee coming out.


HI
When a machine grinds but doesn't make any coffee there are a couple of things.
If the grounds are wet in the dredge drawer, then you have a plugged brew head and need to clean it.
If the grounds are dumped dry into the dredge drawer, then you have an overcharge and need to adjust the dosing lever back from the full charge. On your machine it is inside the door at the top center. Pull the lever back towards the front 1 click. Then try again.

Whenever I brew a cup excess water and ground coffee fill the drip tray. What should I do?


HI
Its normal to relieve some water (half to 1 oz.) and coffee, but excess is caused by having the small knob in the bean hopper set to the minus side. Twist the knob towards the plus side but not all the way, as this can cause an over charge and dump dry grounds in the dredge drawer and not make coffee at all. Another cause is your grounds are too coarse. If this is the case, when the grinder is running twist the big knob in the bean hopper to a smaller # but only do 2 #'s at a time and then make at least 4 coffees before making the next change. You can get the grinds too fine and have an other problem.

When pushing button for a cup of coffee to be made - the beans are grinding and dumping in the box - however no water is coming thru to empty into my cup - the water is being dumped into the reservoir...


Hi
Dry grounds dumped.
There is a lever at the top of the door on the right side. Yours is actually inside the door on the machine. Pull the lever back 1 notch from the plus(+) . You are dumping too much coffee in the brew unit and it can not compress it, so it dumps it, or breaks the drive gears. Never push the lever all the way or it can cause this overcharge. Its fine if the brew group is clean but when you make coffee there is always a residue left and this is what causes the overcharge.

There seems to be a lot of water in the dump box.


The amount of water will vary with the strength of coffee selected.
On the front control under the cup symbol is 3 beans,pressing these will increase strength .
All bean lights on strong.
All details should be in the manual or available online.

Hi,

Try to adjust the grinding little finer, when you have adjust this you have to make 3-4 cup of coffee to get the final result.

No coffee will dispenses


Hi, We had a similar problem and it turns out the beans we were using were too oily and clogging up the works. We solved it by using a slightly more coarse grind (and brewing a stronger cup), and by buying only the best beans (oily beans don't make coffee stronger, just means they aren't good beans and by roasting longer can make the coffee taste stronger). Try Barefoot Coffee Roasters (I don't work for them, just love their coffee). We also use the cleaning tablet more often than prompted, and clean the inside of the flap when we dump the grinds. Good luck. Great coffee, but finicky machine!
