    I have the same problem. I have emptied the dreg drawer while the machine was on etc per the manual and the flashing light continues.
    Does anyone know how the machine knows the dreg drawer is full i.e. what is and where is the signal/trigger to tell the machine it is full?
    I too tried turning the machine off, let it sit then back on and the flashing light re-appears.

    Any solutions?

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

Saeco coffee machine with a red blinking exclamation point light won't make coffee, how do I fix it?


When the red exclamation point is flashing slow, something is not where it is supposed to be, bean hopper lid, door, brew mech, water tank empty, dregs box or water tray on dregs container is full. If the red exclamation point is flashing quickly, open the steam valve for pump priming. If pump turns on, and water passes correctly, the light should go off and return to heating stage. If not, we have a blockage or a pump that is not working correctly.

Right red light is blinking all the time


Alarm LED:
• Permanently on (one or more causes): No coffee left, water tank is empty, empty the residual water
tray is full (in this case the dreg drawer also has to be emptied to prevent problems).
• Flashing slowly (one or more causes): Brewing unit is missing, dreg drawer has not been inserted,
coffee container cover has not been inserted, service door is open, rotary knob for opening the hot
water / steam is not in the right position.
• Flashing rapidly:Ventilate the water system

Can you you tell me why there is a flashing red light on the coffee machine


Descaling light:
• on and fl ashing: signals the need to perform a descaling cycle

Machine ready light:
• permanently on: signals that the machine is ready for use.
• on and fl ashing: signals that the machine is warming up.

Alarm light:
• permanently on : signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
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.
• on and quickly fl ashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit.

Hi there, I have a saeco incanto classic manual machine (had it for 1 week). The machine says it wants more beans (red light flashing) but it is full already. I have tried to empty the bean container...


The light comes on for two reasons. One is out of beans - the other is coffee cake thing is full. Sometimes the brewing device ( that big thing inside the door) will have a bit of coffee cake in it. Just take it out ( Squeeze tab and slide out) and rinse in sink. place back in. Very common issue so get comfortable with sliding this thing out to clean

I have a new to me Starbucks Italia. I have made a few shots and it is telling me to "empty grounds". I have done so but the empty grounds mssg won't go off and it won't function. what do I need to do?


Hi
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.

Repeats "empty coffee grinds drawer". drawer is empty.


Check the area behind the draw there might be some ground coffee preventing the tray from sitting correctly.

Saeco magic comfort coffee machine grinder


Hi,

Make sure you not get any water in the grinder, if you got water in the grinder then you have to clean it.

You can try to set grinding to coarse and try to make 3 cup of coffee.

Saeco Italia SUP021 YR - Red light #29 on solid


Not clear on "Empty bean container/full grounds drawer) - not empty/not full. " But I gather that coffee is not being dispensed. Most Likely the grinder needs cleaning + brew group needs cleaning ( filter ). Do you get water/steam?

Saeco Italia sensor problem


It does that after about 8 rounds of brewing, and it doesn't matter if you empty the grounds after every brew or not. It's automatic.
