SOURCE: Rust on magnet

You may be able to clean up the magnet with a bit of vinegar and an old tooth brush. Make sure to leave the tank open to the air at all other times. Be sure to rinse the tank with a baking soda and water solution to get the taste of the vinegar out of there.

SOURCE: when i turn the machine on the screen says fill

gnet goes in the slot. Flat side up. There is a cap that is rectangular in shape that holds the magnet from floating out. We use a tiny drop in the corner of the cap( I mean tiny) in place. That should correct your message.

SOURCE: The Sensor Magnet for water tank does not float to the top

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.

Hello, you can buy descaling tablets at your local Starbucks. There is also a liquid descaling solution (small bottles) you can buy anywhere.

At the moment I'm using Jura brand descaling tablets I purchased at Starbucks. For instructions on how to descale (quite simple really), see here on p-17 at:

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I turn the machine on

Do you see a fast or a slow blink? If you see:

  • A fast blink: the machine has encountered some condition that prohibits it from engaging the heater element. This could be a low water level detection (the float being in the high position doesn't mean the Reed relais is also triggered!), some other malfunction or a power problem. To rule out the latter, plug the Senseo into another wall socket, preferrably another electric group.
  • A slow blink: your Senseo is feeling happy and is unaware of a problem. This may point to a defective heater element. If you do hear the rumbling noise of water being heated, it's most likely the temperature sensor - both are cases for the repair shop.

The water light comes on and stops the machine from working even if water is full


There's a float (with a small magnet) in the watertank. This float should go up when the tank is filled with water.
So the float can be stuck in the bottom position, or the sensor doesn't work.
You can test the sensor.
  • Take the left cover off: two screws on the back, slide the cover backwards, then lift the bottom up and pull the toppart out downwards.
  • On the main board there's a plug right at the top, that's the cable from the watertank-sensor. With the watertank removed it shouldn't conduct.
  • Now fill the watertank, check whether the float is going up, put the tank back in the machine.
  • The sensor switch should be conducting now. It it is, then the problem is in the control board.
Hope this helps!

Haven't used my Braun tammiso 1370 for Afew years , all lights flashing and not working


"All lights flashing" on Tassimo is a general error condition. But the two absolutely most-likely conditions to cause it are:

1: Unit is not detecting a water tank with sufficient water in it. Inside the tank, near the bottom, there's a vertical chamber that holds a small, floating magnet. As long as the tank contains some water, that magnet should float to the top of its chamber, where it can be sensed by a detector hidden inside the brewer. Make sure your magnet is present and not stuck, and that the water tank is seated correctly.

2: Unable to read bar codes. Use a damp cloth to clean the bar code scanner window under the T-disc holder. Use the cleaning disc to test.

My Delonghi Magnifica automatic Cappucino machine has the "fill tank message on screen all the time but the tank is full and properly positioned and driven right into position. What can I do?


There will be a float in the tank, if it isn't floating then that will be the reason. Solution would be new tank or jam something plastic underneath it to trick the sensor. You will need to do a visual check in future. On the other hand if the float is floating then you will have a sensor problem which someone else will need to help you with.

With plenty of water in the reservoir the empty reservoir light flashes and the pump shuts down.


ive been researching a solution for mine, the whole tank empties s water and fills resevoir under cup. however, ive come across ur solution and ill share it cuz i bet ur going as crazy as me trying to find out what to do. so my understanding is that the black square floater thingy tiggers a magnet (im assuming behind the plastic in the machine (so if the magnet could go threw walls it would go: the black floaty, clear plastic water tank, plastic housing main machine then the magnet).somehow ur magnet is dead. 2 solutions i read:1. recharge ur magnet. stick another mag. on there awhile ( there meaning the black floaty i guess)2. permently stick, glue, tape, what ever a magnet on the inside one . but this way ur machine will always think the tank is full.so just remember its not. this info is only what i read, it made sense to me so i thought id share it with ugood luck:) sorry cant remember the url

Water container full but low indication on


I think the water level is read by a magnetic pick up driven by a black floater located 3/4 way towards the back of the water tank.
Make sure this floater can move up and down in its pocket: you can see it through the walls so just shake the tank to see it move, and check that it floats up when you fill water

WAter fill message will not clear


2 things to check ..when was the last time you properly descaled the unit ? If the waterflow is restricted inside the lines and the boiler ,the interior flow meter signals the computer to show insufficient flow ..clean /descale .
If magnet floats to the top of the small lid that keeps it in the little chamber . If it does not float or partially sinks it is defective ..leaks through a tiny hole in the plastic and water filled the grey magnet with some water (adds weight ) then rusted the strong magnet into rusty magnetic powder and loses magnetic force .
You can use a new good strong magnet to see if the sensor is good by placing it where the old one was .Light should go OFF
The overall important service is to keep the scale out of any machine as much as you can .

Fill Watertank Message


The black thing floating in the water tank is a plastic shell with a magnet inside. If you clean it...make sure you reinstall it with the tapered (smaller) side down. There is a slight size difference BUT it will make ALL the difference in the world.

I had no idea there was a magnet in that black/greyish case. The direction of the casing is important.
I had the same problem and that solved it!
