Dregs light stays on (even when emptied!) - can't use machine

3 yr old magic deluxe. For last few months dregs light [far right] stayed off even when dregs full. [not a problem, as we would just empty drawer periodically]. now opposite problem has suddenly appeared - dregs light stays on, even when dregs drawer emptied. I have tried the following - (1) taking out drawer (machine on) waiting >5 secs and replacing - no good. (2) pressing power button for > 5 secs - no good. (3) cleaning all machine, incl filter (?coffee sticking to a sensor) - no good.
any suggestions - as can't use machine at all !

The various lights are controlled by either magnets that hit various sensors or microswitches.

the dreg light i'm pretty sure is a microswitch.

Its pretty common for them to go out, they're standard in almost all super automatic machines.

that particular switch is a pain in the **** to get to. You can order them direct from saeco, but if you can, it may be easier to send it out.

There should be a microswitch for the grind box, for the drip tray, for the water tank, and there should be one if i remember right for the grinder.

Its different for each model.

Hope this helps.

How does a Saeco Magic De Luxe Espress machine know the dregs drawer needs the be emptied and turns on the light? Does is just count the pucks that are put into the drawer or is there some type of sensor?


Simple answer is it counts how many coffees have been made. If you turn the machine off and then empty the dredge drawer the machine doesn't know this. and the light will remain on. Leaving the machine on when you empty the drawer lets the machine know that you emptied it (15 seconds out) and it will turn the light off.

The light won't come on when the dregs drawer is full. this machine is about 3 months old.


Hi
The machine is a counter. When 16 cycles have been met the light will come on to tell you to empty the box. If you empty it anyother time it will be out of sync, and you will not get the light when it is over full. Empty it when the light comes on and the only when the light comes on and you should have no problems.

Steady Brew Group Light: Old Saeco Magic deluxe


Open the door on the right. The brew unit is the thing with the handle that has the push on it. You need to push on the upper left side of the brew unit until it clicks. There is an outlet spout on the opposite side of where you are pushing. It goes into an intake port that needs to be lubed, so the outlet spout will slide in without pushing back. That should take care of the missing brew unit.

Red Light 28 is flashing even when dregs are emptied


Check the edge of the container that goes in to the machine there is a small part that sticks out, it is possible that that piece is not touching the microswitch in the machine. Remove the drain tray and the dregs tray, check the corners of the machine for loose coffee grounds.

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.

Saeco Magic De Luxe dregs light problem


Make sure that both the tray and dump box are placed correctly- otherwise the machine will not start. Both have a switch and when that switches are not engaged, the machine will not turn on.

Tray and Dregs light flash when machine turns on


You can't make the light go out because the dreg drawer, brewing unit and drip tray, all activate micro switches when they are inserted. One or more of the micro switches have gone open circuit, or they may just be dirty or clogged with coffee granules. You can only fix this problem by opening the machine up.
The light goes out when contact is made with the micro switch. No contact made, no light goes out.
