Check the area where the grounds tray goes it is possible that there is some grounds preventing the tray from making contact with the microswitch.

Grounds container indicator light stays on, grounds container is in place


I have the same problem as this after cleaning. The machine won't power on. It does a power on self test and then the grounds tray full or missing light comes on and nothing else can be done.

A friend of mine with a similar machine says hers fixed itself after a while so assume some sensor got jammed/obscured with my over zealous cleaning. However I'm not hopeful. Might try taking it apart.

The red light blinks under the coffee bean?


The red light on the front of this machine is simply to let you know that there is some issue with the machine: it could be that the grounds receptacle is full, the machine is out of water, or it doesn't have beans. Please check all three areas. It may be that the receptacle, even if empty, may not be pushed all of the way in. Even if the water reservoir is filled, it may not be properly seated on the valve. If the beans appear to fill the bin, it may be that they are not reaching the grinder for some reason and need to be pushed under the tray which shields the grinder. Finally, once you've check these issues, you will want to open the front door of the machine as if to get to the inside where the grinder is housed and then close the cover door. This will then cause the machine to reset. Note, you don't need to do anything other than just open the front cover from the left side as it swings on a hinge on the right and then close the cover again. You can also turn the machine off and on again to cause the machine to reset. This will take care of your issue of the blinking light, assuming you've corrected one of the three things above that originally caused the issue.

Can you you tell me why there is a flashing red light on the coffee machine


Descaling light:
• on and fl ashing: signals the need to perform a descaling cycle

Machine ready light:
• permanently on: signals that the machine is ready for use.
• on and fl ashing: signals that the machine is warming up.

Alarm light:
• permanently on : signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full (in this case, also empty
the coffee grounds drawer in order to prevent failures).
• on and fl ashing slowly: signals that the brew group is not inserted, the
dregdrawer is not inserted the coffee bean hopper lid is not on, the service
door is open or the steam/hot water knob is not correctly turned to the
desired position.
• on and quickly fl ashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit.

Hi there, I have a saeco incanto classic manual machine (had it for 1 week). The machine says it wants more beans (red light flashing) but it is full already. I have tried to empty the bean container...


The light comes on for two reasons. One is out of beans - the other is coffee cake thing is full. Sometimes the brewing device ( that big thing inside the door) will have a bit of coffee cake in it. Just take it out ( Squeeze tab and slide out) and rinse in sink. place back in. Very common issue so get comfortable with sliding this thing out to clean

Coffee beans empty but not


Could Be one of 2 things, the grind is set too fine and the beans are not getting to the millstones, or there is something blocking the chute for the grounds.

ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans

Beans stick in hopper


Bob,

Thanks for the help but I was well past that stage. After cleaning half a dozen times, changing beans three or four times, soldering the contacts on the switch, changing it, replacing the whole doser flap sled and anything else I could think to do I finally fixed it. It took me months but in the end it was the doser trap door not allowing the dozer flap to move back and hit the switch when the grounds came down. A simple light bending out fixed it. So...we had a rare mechanical issue. The machine does have a design flaw in that it has a long three inch shoot for the grounds which makes it susceptible to clogs. Do not use oily beans!

Saeco Incanto Flashing Red Bean Light


I found a machine in my dentist's office with this exact same problem. I'm not familiar with the model, so I downloaded a manual for the closest model I could find online (the Sirius), and it offered no help -- but in 8 languages!

I ended up just pulling the drip tray, pulling the box where the grounds end up, and re-inserting the assembly (all while the machine was on.) When I buttoned it up again, it worked.

Hope this helps (although I can see how it might not...)
