Check that the magnet in the water tank is moving freely, if it is stuck with limescale the magnet will not rise with the water and the machine thinks there is no water, if it is stuck, at some descaler or white vinigar to disolve the scale

SOURCE: Saeco professional. Water tank needs filling, switch OK

Hi
It could be the magnet in the water tank. If it sinks you will get that message. How do you know the switch is OK?

I looked up your problem and found the same one was answered previously on fixya. I have copied and pasted the previous answer here for you. Good luck and I hope you have a great day!
After many months, I solved the problem of the red light staying on the Tassimo Coffee Maker. Use these easy steps.
1. Fill a 2 cup measuring cup with hot water.
2. Mix in descaler.
3. Pour in the empty water tank.
4. Put the yellow cleaning disk in the chamber and close chamber. Put the two cup measuring cup under the spout.
5. Push and hold the brew button for about 3 seconds (until the red and green light flash.
6. Now don't touch the machine. It will do it's thing for about 20 minutes. (Don't be impatient and start to push buttons, just leave it)
7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.

Hi,when my tassimo finishes filling the cup,it


For a Braun machine, unfortunately this is quite normal as it's part of the "purge" once it has finished brewing.

The new Bosch machines do not do this and finish their cycle with a steam purge instead.

Light keeps flashing and water will not heat


there is a float at the side of the machine by the water level, if the float gets stuck the red light will continue to flash even though water is present. Use a magnet on the outside of the machine by the water and float level and raise the float when connected to the magnet and the light will stop flashing red rapidly

Descale red light, wont go off, and can i use any delcale tabs


Solution: Just refill the water tank with water (no descaling solution) all the way to the "Max Line". Then run the full descaling program again --takes approx. 20 minutes. After the program runs completely you will get the yellow "standby" light on and the red "descaling" light will be off.

Next time you descale, be sure and fill your water tank to the "Max Line" before running the descaling program.
Hint: An incomplete cycle (not full tank) is what makes the red light stay on. In other words, it's staying red to tell you to run a full cycle (beginning with the water tank filled to the "Max Line"). Hope this tip is helpful!
