    My coffee maker's blue lights come on and keep blinking. No coffee!

  • DudleysGrl Jun 02, 2008

    Haven't used my B&D for a year or so and I tried to use it and I can her the motor turning on and then it stops and the 7oz and 90z buttons start blinking and it starts beeping. I've tried hitting the cleaning button numerous times and unplugging and replugging it but nothing seems to work. I've heard there is a way to prime them, but I don't know how.

    I have the same problem on all sizes. It makes a loud noise like something running, then stops and then two of the blue lights blink for about 30 seconds. No water ever comes out.

Unplug and then plug the machine back in. The stop light should be blinking.

Hold down the lid release lever until the lid opens up. Close the lid enough so that the sensor thinks the lid is closed, but not enough so that it actually latches closed. You'll hear a "click" where the sensor engages before the latch takes hold. Hold the lid in that position until the red stop light stops blinking, then close the lid all the way until it latches.

Press the clean button (with water in the tank) and it should begin working properly again. Good luck!

This coffee machine is WORTHLESS do NOT buy it. Ive spent the last hour trying to figure out why it starts brewing the coffee for about 10 seconds then stops and the 7oz and 9oz lights just blink. NOW I CANT EVEN OPEN THE DAMN LID TO CHECK WHERE THE PODS GO TO SEE IF THATS THE PROBLEM.

Once again do NOT buy this, black and decker has lost nearly ALL of my business now. Their products are cheap plastic chinese made GARBAGE.

If you have black and decker stock still, just hang on to it. I imagine it can't go any lower.

Very poor customer service too. Horrible horrible product. Home cafe from black and decker is a POS! If you buy it without researching reviews first, it is your own fault. I'm just glad mine didn't randomly catch on fire like others have.....

I hope this solves your problem because i had the same problem. I got curious and decided to open the bottom of the machine an check it. I found some dirt or grounds in the line that lead from the water tank to a filter and then to the water heater. The filter was clogged so the water couldn't get through fast enough to the water heater so this is why the two blinking lights(9oz. and the 7oz.) came on. Once I cleaned the line it worked fine for me. just be careful when taking it apart it is kind of tight underneath with all those lines down there and you could break something when taking it apart.

All lights are blinking on coffee maker & unable to brew.


The cups only brew one mug at a time. Open and close the lid to check if that resets itself.
Otherwise, turn the machine off and on again to "reset" the function. Also check that there is enough water

Saeco Incanto Rondo right red light is on and I cannot make coffee. The machine grinds the beans but does not dispense any coffee.


Try to set the machine to grind finer. Common problem with this machine when the grinder grinds too coarse, and the coffee will not fit in the brew unit during the cycle. Grinding finer will allow the brew unit to compress and the machine should complete the cycle.

If this does not work there may be another thing to try, Let me know support@cerinicoffee.com

Tassimo Coffee Maker: Tell me how to operate it. I can fill the water, put the pod in and all the lights keep flashing. Pressing the start/stop button does nothing.


• All lights will blink the first time you turn on your
machine. This is your cue to prepare your machine for use by
following the quick instructions in Step 1 on separate insert.
• If the water level runs low while you are preparing a
beverage, all lights will flash. Simply remove and refill the
water container, and brewing will continue automatically
where it left off. It should not be necessary to discard the T-DISC
and start over.
• The AUTO light will blink throughout the brewing process.
Some drinks require a pause in brewing as part of the recipe
for brewing your perfect cup - this is to allow the optimal flavors
to unfold and is a normal part of the brewing process. The AUTO
light will continue to blink throughout this process.

HOW TO MAKE A DRINK
• Place the mug of your choice on the cup stand.
• When the STANDBY light illuminates, insert the T-DISC® of your choice
and close the clamp.
• The HEATING light will blink as the brewer heats the water to the
optimal temperature for your drink.
• Once the proper temperature is reached, the AUTO light will
illuminate. When it lights up, press the start/stop button to begin
the brew cycle.
• The AUTO light will continue to flash throughout the brewing cycle.
PLEASE NOTE: Some beverages have a pause in brewing
after the initial influx of water into the T-DISC®.
• The MANUAL light will illuminate when your drink is ready.

I have the Keuirg mini plus and i just opened it. It flashes red like it is heating and then just turns off. No brewing.


Same here. (I have the Mini Plus B31) Called Keurig and these are the steps they walked me through. Not sure which part actually fixed the problem, but it worked.

1. Turn off machine. Using a paperclip clean out the holes in the needles (3 in the top, one in the bottom of the k-cup holder).

2. If water is inside the heating core (assuming it is as nothing happened when you tried to brew), with the machine turned off, press and hold the brew button. After 5 seconds the pump will kick on and discharge the water. Make sure you have a cup in place to catch the water.

3. Dispose of that water.

4. Unplug the machine.

5. Wait 5 seconds.

6. Plug machine back in.

7. Turn on.

8. Run empty cycle without a k-cup and only use the minimum amount of water (6 oz).

9. Dispose of that water after it brews (hopefully).
If still nothing is happening, call Keurig.

10. Brew your coffee, tea, choco, etc.

Note: was told by Keurig rep that whenever you use hot chocolate, to run an empty rinse cycle afterwards before brewing another cup. This will help prevent any choco from going up inside the machine and possibily blocking the water flow.

Hope it works! Mine did after following these instructions. The rep also wanted me to measure the amount of water that came out afterwards. Not sure what the next step would be because my call got dropped, but the machine works. Sipping on a cup now...

The program light won't stop blinking


Same here. I'm dead in the water. This started happening a few weeks ago and with patience and luck and different combos of buttons I'd get it to stop and I was able to brew. Today it just stopped completely. The program light either blinks constantly or stays lit constantly, but I cannot brew coffee. I see lots of people online with this problem, but have yet to see a solution.

Grind Off light blinking


Mine was doing that for the past week. I think it was indicating there had been a power outage but that the clock had not reset to zeros. I changed the time a couple of minutes and it stopped.

Blue light blinking, tank full, water not heating up

You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

Cleaning light will not quit blinking after cleaning


The same thing happened to our Mr. Coffee this week! I followed the instructions about running vinegar through, then rinsing several times with water. However, the light would not stop blinking. We did by-pass the light by setting the timer for delayed brewing and it worked. However, that blinking light came on again. Then, my husband tired the vinegar wash again but instead of doing it one time, he ran the same vinegar through 6 times until the light went out! Then he proceeded with the water rinse. Our Mr. Coffee is working again!
