Question about Saeco Primea Cappuccino Touch Plus Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Dreg Drawer The machine keeps thinking that the dreg drawer is open when doing anything. One has to hold it in to make a coffee, rinse, clean etc. Saeco's solution is to put scotch tape around the lug tip. Not an elegant solution for a $3000 machine. Anu other ideas? I think the vibration of the machine is sufficient to move the dreg drawer just enogh so the sensor doesn't think it is in.

My Saeco Royal displays Dreg Drawer full after about 3-4 cups of coffee. i have cleaned the drawer. where do i find the Dreg drawer sensor to clean it.


hi,
this is normal as there is no switch or sensor. In fact the Royal as well as the Magic and others are counting the number of coffees that you have made between two removals of the dreg drawer. For this counter to reset, you have to remove the dreg drawer while the machine is ON, and remove it for about 10s minimum.
Retry and tell me if it is better.
Hope that helps,
M.

the machine is counting how many coffee is made,and then it's showing that dreg drawer is full. If you empty it before the machine showing that's full -machine don't know that you are empty it.Now you have to remove dreg drawer for 10 seconds and then put it back!

I have a Saeco Odea Go and my puck in the dreg drawer are really wet and I have water leaking (brown so with coffee) under the dreg drawer. how I can fix it ?


I recently had this problem. I throughly cleaned and lubricated the brew group as directed by the manual. Apparently if the brew group doesn't move smoothly enough it won't grind the correct amount of beans. Try lubricating and then brewing 2-3 cups to have the machine recalibrate the grind amount.

Emtied the dreg drawer when the SAECO machine was off.


Chenk the back of the area for the drawer, there might be some grounds preventing the draw from going all the way in to tell the microswitch that it is in place.

Machine won't work due to dreg drawer


Check to see if your machine has an "exit chute" or similar area where from the used pucks are ejected. The area might be clogged with used coffee grinds and causing a false reading from the machine.

Dregdrawer Full


There is no 'sensor' for this, an internal counter resets when you remove the drawer with the machine switched on and the "Dreg drawer Full" message displayed.
Make sure the machine displays this message "DREG DRAWER FULL" Do NOT turn off the machine, Pull out the drawer that the used grinds are dumped in(you have to remove the drip tray 1st) Check display - it should read "DREG DRAWER MISSING" If the display message is correct, wait 10 seconds then replace the drewer.
Message should be cleared.
If the "dreg drawer missing" does not display, you do have a bad sensor and machine needs to be serviced.

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

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
