When power is turned on, the coffee selection button should blink during warming up. If it is not blinking then the following i possible:
1- The electronic sensor is bad. It is clamp mounted on the boiler to sense temperature and send message to control board to turn the heating off when it is ready to make espresso. The blinking light will be fixed to display this.
2- The heating element on the boiler is bad and not heating. The electronic sensor cannot relay any temperature as it is.not sensing the heating.
3- The electronic control board is bad and not sensing the temperature.
The machine should be opened up to test the sensor or the neating elements, and replace what is bad..
Same thing just happened to my Dolce Gusto Piccolo. It was off for 2-3 weeks, and after turning on, the light just kept blinking red forever. I tried pulling out water reservoir and putting it back repeatedly for a few dozen times (saw somewhere that air should be pumped out of the system), but It didn't help. Then I plugged out the power cord from the wall socket (while the machine was on), and plugged it back after a few seconds. Turned the Piccolo on, and it worked (blinked red shortly and turned green). Maybe it has something to do with induced current. And maybe pulling the water reservoir actually helped :)
If you steam and then try to make another coffee, you need to cool the boiler off. Turn the steam off by pushing the steam button again, then open the steam knob and running water until the flashing light turn to green steady. Then make you coffee.
Open the steam valve when you turn the machine on that will vent out the boiler, keep it open until it starts to hiss slightly and produce small steam bubbles, then close and machine should heat to temp. If that solves your problem then the vent valve needs to be replaced, until then you can turn using the steam valve open trick.
Hi The LED should be blinking red not green on a magic delux. The only green light is the boiler light for warming up or ready. If its the brew unit light it means its missing. Open the door on the right. The brew unit is the thing with the handle that has the “press” on it. You need to push on the upper left side of the brew unit until it clicks. There is an outlet spout on the opposite side of where you are pushing. It goes into an intake port that needs to be lubed, so the outlet spout will slide in without pushing back. That should take care of the missing brew unit.
Go online to www.cheapboilers.com who deal with this type of boiler. It would be very difficult to troubleshoot this boiler with the information supplied. I hope this will be of some help to you. Sincerely, Shastalaker7 They should also be able to get you a manual for your thermostat.
You can't manually reset. The machine will have to do it. I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid. No coffee can be made or hot water. I could not pump prime. The problem was the steam wand was blocked with old milk residue. It needs unblocking or you will never pump prime. I could not unscrew the steam wand...so I let it sink in a glass full of hot water for a few minutes and then turned the water knob counter clockwise to push out the softened residue. After that, everything was good. When water started flowing out of the steam wand, the red light turned off and the green lights turned solid. The obvious answer to why you can't pump prime is there is a blockage somewhere and best to start with the steam wand. --Mabada
Hi Caution light usually means something is out of place. Nothing will work until everything is in place and locked. Steady water light means it needs to be primed, (run water by opening the steam knob). It won't heat until the boilers are primed.
