Try removing the dregdrawer and gently blowing into the area where the dregs are released from the brew unit. Sometimes the sensor seems to get a little bit of dregs on it so assumes the drawer is full.

SOURCE: how do i empty the dregdrawer on a saeco incanto

When you want to empty the grounds because it says to in the menu, REMEMBER TO LEAVE THE MACHINE ON when you remove the drawer. The machine is a counter and when it reaches the magic number for that machine the message comes on. If the machine is turned off when you pull the drawer out, the machine doesn't know this and the message will be there when you turn the machine back on. Also remember to leave the drawer out for at least 15 seconds or a little longer so the machine thinks you actually dumped the grounds.

SOURCE: machine shows message 'dregdrawer full'

Hi
When you go to empty the dredge drawer you must leave the machine on. When you remove the dredge drawer it will say dredge drawer missing. Leave it out at least 15 seconds so the machine knows you are empting it. When you insert it again the machine will count about 24 cycles and tell you to empty it again. Its a counter.

SOURCE: 'dregdrawer full' message but not

HI Are you leaving the machine on when you empty the dredge drawer? There has to be power for the computer to see that the dredge drawer has been removed. Leave it out at least 15 seconds, so the computer thinks you emptied it. This should clear the message.

I have a red light and nothing is working no cofee and no milk nothing


I have a Saeco Easy. Maybe the solution for my machine will help you. You did not specify which light is red I will assume it is the "Alarm" light.

Alarm light (looks like an "!" exclamation point)

• permanently on: signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full.

• slowly flashing: 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.

• quickly flashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit

The screen says "empty dregdrawer".


  1. Remove the drip tray (it just lifts off)
  2. Pull on the bottom section, this is a drawer which contains the spent capsules.
  3. Empty the drawer.
  4. Replace the drawer and the drip tray.

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.

make sure you empty the dregdrawer only if the machine is turned on, otherwise it will not count it as emptied.

Dregdrawer Full


I read somewhere that there is a counter in the machine that when a certain amount of shots are done, the counter will reach its limit and tell you to empty the drawer, even if it's not full.

When I get the message I open the door, remove the drawer and it goes away once you replace it. Don't know why the machine would stop working though?

Dregdrawer. miss.


Make sure the machine is clean of coffee grinds. Mine has a nasty habit of dropping them behind the dregdrawer instead of in it. Remove the central unit and give it a good clean. The dregdrawer should then slide back fully into the microswitch.
If this doesn't work, you've probably got a dud microswitch.

Dregdrawer full message will not go away


Have you tried removing the drawer with the machine on, leave it out for say 2 minutes and then replacing the dreg drawer again?

There is no dreg sensor. Dreg drawer full works off a counter - depending on when the counter was last reset your drawer may be full but it may be empty.

Simply removing the dreg drawer and replacing it quickly will not reset it. The machine has to think that you have actually taken the time to empty it - a couple of minutes should cover this.

If this does not resolve the issue, you need to get a Technician to take a look.

I hope this helps
