Either the magnet is too weak in the water bucket or the magnetic internal switch is broken. If you put an alarm type magnet next to where it would be on the actual machine and the add water goes out, then you know it is the one in the water bucket. If it doesn't it is likely the internal switch.

SOURCE: Fill Water Tank But Water Tank is Full

Check the little black rectangular box which is in a plastic channel at the back. To work properly, the rectangular box, with the narrower end facing downwards, needs to be floating at the top of that channel. Apparently it's a magnet which signals the circuitry that the water tank is full. Make sure it's floating to the cap of the channel. If not, you can get a replacement one from Gaggia.

SOURCE: water gtank full telling me to fill water tank

Hi
Check an see if you have the magnet in your water tank. That is your signal to the computer that it is full if it is at the top of its chamber. If you don't have a magnet ( gray cylinder) in the water tank that is your problem. If it is on the bottom the magnet needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: keep asking me fill up the water tank even it is

Inside the water tank there is a magnetic float which is causing the problem. This float is moving always on the top of the water tank as you fill it with water and in reverse as the water level goes down then the float is moving down to bottom also. So as the magnetic float is moving up and down is giving the signal for the water level if it is full or empty.
So possibly now the float is stuck in the bottom and even if you have refill the tank this is still on the bottom of the tank. This can happen from many reasons. First could be that the plastic column that the float is moving is full of scale and it can not move up and down freely any more so you can clean it from scale by decaling it and even clean it with a wire brush.
A second possibility could be that float have a tiny hole and some water enter in the float and this make it to stay on the bottom of the tank. You can visually inspect it and if possible you can dry out the water and weld with a super glue the hole if possible, if it can not be fixed then you need a new float.
If you wand to fix it temporary until you find a new float you can a plastic clip or similar to secure it always on the top however you when the tank is empty it doesn't register so you would really have to keep an eye on the water level to avoid any other problems with the machine.
Good luck

Water system problems


- normally water tanks are mains fed so the auto shut valve for the water tank could be faulty but more often than not, it will overflow the tank through natural wear of the washer. the auto shut valve is normally some kind of ball **** valve.

Krups XP9000 won't recognise water tank is full


I have just had the same problem with my Krups XP7240 and I discovered (quite by accident!) that it was the magnetic float inside the water tank which was causing it. I think the float must have let some water in and always stayed on the bottom even when the tank was full. As the float was in an enclosed plastic column it was a bit hard to access, but through sheer desperation I snapped a plastic fork in half and wedged the handle section under the float to keep it off the bottom and this works nicely. It is not professional by any means but I was quite pleased with my innovation :)

The only down side to this 'method' is that the opposite is now true and when the tank is empty it doesn't register so you would really have to keep an eye on the water level to avoid killing the element completely.

I would imagine that the only professional way to get this sorted out is to replace the tank (or float if it is accessible?). Good luck!!

Nespresso Magimix M300 'Fill Water'


it just means that the pump needs primed. Turn on at the wall and on the machine, wait until screen says ready (make sure water tank full), then turn steam handle on RHS to on (do not push the steam button). the pump will prime until water comes out of the steam nozzle. now turn off the steam handle and you are ready to go!
