Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine

Water tank issues

OK now, this is a weird one.
The little magnet floating doobie in the watertank GOES DOWN when the tank is replaced in the machine but goes up again when you put it anywhere else in the universe (so far, only our kitchen tested)
Clearly some part of the coffee maker has become magnetised and is sucking the doobie down.
Is there way around this (other than my current method which involves a toothpick)?
Ours is a Magic Comfort BTW
Thanks heaps in anticipation.

The machine will say Fill water tank. So, we will take the container out of the machine fill it to or just a little above the recommended line and then put it back into the machine. It will be full and it...


After filling the water tank, can you see if a grey plastic piece, in the back of the water tank, is floating?. If no, then that part needs to be replaced. If it does float, then the integrity of the water sensor, (located in the back of where the water tank is housed into), will need to be tested. Testing this sensor requires, tricking the coffee maker... that the door is closed. With Coffee Maker in the "ON" position, you will need to hold door switch in (located top right corner of unit, with door opened). As switched is held in, you will need to use a magnet and place it around the rear of where the water tank is housed into (Rear-left middle height area)... just around where the water tank float would be, if it were filled with water and inserted into the coffee maker. This sensor isn't visible, but is activated when a magnet is placed around it. If "FILL WATERTANK" message goes away, then replace plastic float or water tank itself.

Says fill watertank, water tank is full. Have emptied and refilled, checked for blockages...nothing will work.


There is a little black float inside of the water tank. When the water level is increases it raises the float triggering a magnetic censor telling the computer that the water level is adequate. The float may be stuck. when you fill the tank, make sure the float raises with the water level. if this is not the problem then it is possible that your censor is bad.

My Titanium keeps saying "fill watertank" I have filled the tank, switched the machine off hoping it would reset but same message!!


See if the small black float is able to move up and down in the water tank. You have to clean the water tank every so often, it will get slimey in the tank and it's possible some build up is preventing the float from moving up and down.

The float is dark in color and about 1 inch by 3 inches by 1/4 inch rectangular shape. It is magnetic and works a magnetic switch that is inside the machine.

Hi
The magnet in the water tanks is either upside down or has sunk to the bottom of the tank. It should float to the top of the cage it is in and it should have a flat top not rounded. If its rounded side up the magnet is upside down. This is what would cause your problem.

When i turn the machine on the screen says fill watertank. ventilate. the tank is full. i replaced the water level sensor. it still doesn't work. the magnet in the watertank is floating. any other ideas?


gnet goes in the slot. Flat side up. There is a cap that is rectangular in shape that holds the magnet from floating out. We use a tiny drop in the corner of the cap( I mean tiny) in place. That should correct your message.

Watertank empty problem


Couple of things.

Magnet in the water tank could have gone bad in which case you need a new water tank.

2. Sensor for the magnet could have gone bad. Which case you need a new sensor.

3. Flowmeter could be dead in which case it won't feed water to the system, If thats the case its a new flowmeter.

4. Pump. If the pumps not working, it won't feed the flowmeter, which in turn won't feed the system. You'd need a pump in this case.


Its one of the 4. Unfortunately its not an exact science, its a trial by error type thing.

Cheapest way is to send it to a service center. They'll know right away when they open it up. They can also diagnose quicker.

Fill Watertank Message


The black thing floating in the water tank is a plastic shell with a magnet inside. If you clean it...make sure you reinstall it with the tapered (smaller) side down. There is a slight size difference BUT it will make ALL the difference in the world.

I had no idea there was a magnet in that black/greyish case. The direction of the casing is important.
I had the same problem and that solved it!
