Right red light is blinking all the time


Alarm LED:
• Permanently on (one or more causes): No coffee left, water tank is empty, empty the residual water
tray is full (in this case the dreg drawer also has to be emptied to prevent problems).
• Flashing slowly (one or more causes): Brewing unit is missing, dreg drawer has not been inserted,
coffee container cover has not been inserted, service door is open, rotary knob for opening the hot
water / steam is not in the right position.
• Flashing rapidly:Ventilate the water system

Both red lights flashing top and bottom at same time


Hello pbeckelctri,

I understand that the top and bottom light on your machine is blinking at the same time. The top light indicates that you need to empty the coffee drawer and the bottom light indicates that you need to descale the unit. However, if both are flashing aternativly there is something else wronge with the machine.

Please post back so I know exactly what is going on.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Make sure the brew group is in
rest position; the two references
must match.(look at the marks/arrows on the side of the brew group)

Make sure the components are in
the correct position.
The hook shown must be in the
correct position; to check its
position, firmly press the "PUSH"
button.

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, the problem with your machine is with the grinder motor (not working).As soon as you press the coffee the CPU senses the motor is out of circuit and the lights start flashing alternately.
You can test it by doing this. Press and hold the steam button and switch on the machine, you will see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction. Release the button then turn the dial to left (Min) and press the steam button the grinder should work. The dial on the right (Max) the brew group will come up..and half way it will come back to normal position. Press the coffee button in that position will work the pump. Servicecenter can fix this if the machine is less than 2 year old FOC.

When you press the coffee button , and the top and bottom lights are flashing, that means the grinder is either jammed or out of order. If the machine is less than 2 years old, the service center will replaced it under warranty.

How do you descale my Delonghi Magnifica?


10.3 DESCALING Due to the continuous heating of the water used to make the coffee, over time it is normal for the tubing inside the machine to fill with lime scale. When the light starts flashing (section 12 - point 5), it is time to descale the machine. NOTE: when the light switches on, the coffee maker can still be used to prepare coffee. Proceed as follows: • Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus one liter of water. For subsequent descaling operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorized technical service centers. Note: Make sure splashes of descaler do not fall onto surfaces sensitive to acid such as marble, limestone and granite. • place a container with a minimum capacity of 34 oz. under the cappuccino frother (Fig. 3); • turn the machine on by pressing the button (Fig. 4). • wait for the green and indicator lights to come on steady. • press and hold the button for at least 5 seconds (Fig.14). The decalcification warning light will illuminate (section 11 - point 8) to indicated the start of the descaling program (the and lights remain off to indicate that it is not possible to make coffee). • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig.5). The descaling solution will come out of the cappuccino frother and start to fill the container underneath. • the descaling program automatically performs a series of deliveries and pauses, so as to remove the lime scale deposits from inside the coffee maker. Fig.32 The two red buttons have snapped out CORRECTLY The two red buttons have not snapped out CORRECT INCORRECT 17 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS • after around 30 minutes, when the light comes on (section 12 - point 1), turn the steam knob half a turn clockwise (Fig.6) until it stops. The machine must be rinsed so as to eliminate the residues of descaling solution from inside the machine. Proceed as follows: • remove the water tank, rinse it and fill it with clean water. • reposition the tank. • empty the collection container (located under the milk frother) that is full of liquid, and then replace it under the milk frother. • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig. 5). Hot water will come out of the milk frother and fill the container underneath. • when the tank is empty, the l ight goes off and the light comes on (section 12 - point 1). • turn the steam knob all the way clockwise (Fig. 6) and fill the water tank with clean water again. • the program of descaling is now terminated and the machine is ready to make coffee again. NOTE: if the descaling procedure is interrupted before completion, the alarm (section 12 - point 5) is not deactivated and the procedure must be started again form the beginning.

I Have descaled my Saeco Odea Go but still it doesnt brew coffee


That is serious, that means the grinder is jammed or not working. To check the components of the machine follow these instructions.
Press and hold the steam button and turn on the machine, when you see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction, release the button. Turn the coffee dial to the left and press the steam button, the grinder should turn. Dial on the right and pressing coffee ****. water pump runs. Press steam ****. brew group go up, dial 1/4 to left B/Group down.
If grinder not turning the motor is bad. Hope it will help to find out.

Repeats "empty coffee grinds drawer". drawer is empty.


Check the area behind the draw there might be some ground coffee preventing the tray from sitting correctly.

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
