Have to up the breaker at panel that controls that line of outlet circuits, but sometimes can not do this as wires in walls that control those outlets are on same circuit and rated at a curtain size breaker. Best and safest way to solve this is plug machine on different circuit that maybe not so many other items are sharing, like if your fridge or microwave is on that same circuit (breaker) it most likely will always trip. Let me know results if this solved problem, thanks Mr Bean Man
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.
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
I've had this problem. Looks like its the float in the back corner of the water tank, which contains something magnetic that must trigger a sensor. I put a piece of plastic in the float chamber to push the float closer to the side of the tank. Be careful, if you jam the float (in the up position) then you may run out of water without any warning. Very annoying when you can't get your morning coffee.
