I have a message: Empty the drip tray, but when I empty it, i still get the same message and the machine will not respond to any arrow inputs, so, I can't make any drinks

I have never had seen this problem ... however assuming the tray contacts are not shorted in any way ... its likely to be a problem with contacts in rear of the tray cavity. I would check the following;

1. Remove drip tray and shine a torch into the tray cavity to inspect the receiving contacts that accept the tray contacts. Perhaps theses contacts are shorted in some way.

2. The next step is to open up machine, but you need to be suitably experienced with electrical appliances to perform this step. Disconnect the power at the outlet (or if this is not accessible than at the fuse box). Remove the machine from the cavity and remove the rear panels (making note of which screws go where). Locate the wires that terminate on the contacts on the rear side of tray cavity. Disconnect the wires from these contacts. Replace panels and then reapply power to unit. If this solves your problem .. then there must be a short on the contacts in rear of tray cavity. If this does not solve the problem then trace this wire back to control board and remove wire at the control board. Again replace panels. If this solves problem then there must be a fault in the wire which can be fixed/replaced.. If this does not solve the problem then it would appear to be a problem with control board and best to call Miele.

Please come back if you need more help and also once you solve the problem .. to explain what went wrong. regards

I have a C290. The orange light is on and the machine wont work.

Make sure the drip tray is in place properly and the empty pod container is empty. If both are correct then there may be a fault with either sensor for the above parts making the machine think either the pod bin is full or the drip tray is missing

Can't get rid of drip tray missing

the basic solution is to clean the contacts at the back of the drip tray, they can easily become soiled. assuming you have done this the contact points in the coffee machine may also need cleaning. this can be done by gently rubbing fine sand paper on the contact where the drip tray contact are inserted. if problem still persists then the internal contacts may need replacing.

Miele 4070 watersystem fault but the catch tray has no water so it's not overflowing. What might this be?

it is leaking internally. When the drip tray is full, it tells you to empty the drip tray. when the machine has a problem and develops a leak, it locks up and displays watersystem fault. contact miele at 800 843 7231 and they can put you in contact with a service center in your area.

Message says tray missing, even with tray in place. Have found the micro switch inside and pushing this down "fools" the machine into thinking the drip tray is back in place, but then when the...

Clearly, the drip tray is not aligned right, or there is a manufacturing flaw. Simple answer would be to examine the part of the tray that you believe is supposed to engage the switch when it is in place, and try to figure out why it is not doing this.
Personally, if you are like me and don't mind voiding a warranty, I'd suggest removing the switch so the machine always thinks the tray is in place.

It says driptray full, but it isn't? Any ideas?

Wevhave had ours into the shop four times for the erroneous 'coffee grounds' and drip tray' emptying. They have changed the mother board, chip in the door and even looked at the head gasket and carburettor settings but can't find the source of the problem.
What we have found latelt (it's Christmas so everything is closed for a month) is if we leave it overnight without power, 3 out of 4 times it resets itself.
It's apain if it plays up during the day but mornings brings us a good cuppa more often than not.lesson-get a deLonghi next time, this Saeco brand is more trouble than they are worth.

Empty Drip Tray message

Try to clip off the tray contacts and clean behind them. If they are dirty and wet on the backside the machine will keep asking you for Empty tray. Use a small screwdriver and clip them off from the inside of the tray

Saeco Espresso machine - Empty drip tray (all the time)

aye that is true if you click the coffe making button directly after you have had it out you will be able to make a cup, as the machine has a 2 second response time.

Ok here is what i think:
As it registers the driptray I dont think its the sensor to it.
More i would think that its the CPU card that is not responding to that its clean.

I am sry but I have to ask this:
When it says emptie the driptray are you actually taking out the container that is located under the brewing unit, and not the "drip tray" were you put the coffe mugs?

Also when i think i have a sensor problem I allways take out everything. Brewing unit, dripwater container, dregbox, and the watercontainer. and have it out for atleast 2 minutes ( clean it under the mean time) and put it back again.

As I dont have the machine infront of me i cant be certain:)
