Question about Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine
I cannot get the machine to clear the "water fill" message. It was suggested I tap it because there is a magnet in there that sends the reset signal and it worked once but now I am stuck again. I've primed and primed but can't clear it. Any herlp would be GREAT!!!
The unit will have what's called a reed switch in the back of the unit. This works in conjuction with the magnet in the water chamber. If the unit has been jared in someway or the magnet has been de-magnetized it will not send the proper signal to the processor within the unit. Check if the light goes out using a seperate magnet. If not then the reed switch needs to be replaced. That's fine if you can do it yourself but not worth having a tech replace, might as well buy a new one.

2 things to check ..when was the last time you properly descaled the unit ? If the waterflow is restricted inside the lines and the boiler ,the interior flow meter signals the computer to show insufficient flow ..clean /descale .
If magnet floats to the top of the small lid that keeps it in the little chamber . If it does not float or partially sinks it is defective ..leaks through a tiny hole in the plastic and water filled the grey magnet with some water (adds weight ) then rusted the strong magnet into rusty magnetic powder and loses magnetic force .
You can use a new good strong magnet to see if the sensor is good by placing it where the old one was .Light should go OFF
The overall important service is to keep the scale out of any machine as much as you can .
