Water is not running through the machine.

I have the machine ready to go with coffee and water and it's plugged in. When I push the button to start brewing it turns green but nothing happens.

    As I think about it the water must not be heating. What would cause that?

  1. Make sure the coffeemaker is plugged into a working 120V electrical outlet.
  2. Make sure the power switch is turned on.
  3. Make sure the water reservoir has water in it.
  4. The unit may require cleaning to remove mineral deposits that build up over time.
  5. If the coffeemaker is equipped with a clock and the clock is working properly but the unit will not brew, please contact the nearest Authorized Service Center.
  6. The unit may require cleaning to remove mineral deposits that build up over time.
  7. Make sure the filter is properly in position and that the brew basket is fully closed.
  8. If the coffeemaker is equipped with a removable water reservoir ensure that the reservoir is properly installed.
  9. Avoid overfilling the water reservoir. The coffeemaker is equipped with an overflow slot near the top of the water reservoir. If too much water is added it will flow out of this slot and collect near the base of the unit and brewing will not start.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    There is a warming plate in the unit to make the water warm and to brew the coffee to drip it warm in the cup.
    If coffee brews cold,or coffee does not warm the water to start brewing the warming plate is not getting warm, your unit may need to be repaired. The warming plate needs to be checked.Either the plate needs replacement or the wires which connects the plate have got cut in between or short.
    Thanks for updating with your query.

Hello,

There two possible reasons for this problem, you will need to check this two options to fix the problem.

  • The one-way valve can get clogged open or closed. You can usually fish out the debris that causes this problem with a toothpick.
  • The tubes can get clogged with calcium. This is especially true of the aluminum heating tube. The normal way to solve this problem is to run vinegar through the machine once, and then run two batches of water through to clean out the vinegar.
Take care.

    Hello,

    The problem of water not heating is cause by the heating element. The resistive heating element is simply a coiled wire,
    very similar to the filament of a light bulb
    or the element in an electric toaster
    that gets hot when you run electricity through it. In a resistive
    element like this, the coil is embedded in a plaster to
    make it more rugged. The heating element has two jobs:


    • When you first put the water in the coffee maker, the heating
      element heats it.

    • Once the coffee is made, the heating element keeps the coffee
      warm.
    The heating element might be defective, since you the water is not getting hot.

    Take care.

7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.

We are attempting to use the LA3 by pouring water into the top of the machine as opposed to auto through a water line. The water heats up, the green ready light comes on, I push the start button and it...


If it is not connected to a water line then you cannot use the hot water faucet or the start/brew button, you will have to manually brew coffee by pouring the water into the reservoir.

How do you descale a Saeco Magic Comfort Plus coffee machine? do you buy some fluid from somewhere and pump it through or what?


Hi
To descale your Magic Comfort +, enter the menu and scroll to descale. Push the menu button to descale. Mix your solution in your water tank. Use warm to hot water and dissolve all the solution. Place the water tank on your machine. With a container under the steam wand that is large enough to catch all the water in the tank, you are ready to begin. To start the descaling process, open the steam knob. The machine will automatically start the descaling process and when it is finished, it will shut off and tell you that it needs to be rinsed. Remove the water tank and rinse with fresh water. Refill the water tank and place it on the machine. Turn off the machine, wait a moment, and then turn it back on. Press the hot water button to start pumping fresh water through the boiler. Pump out about 16 oz. of water and then turn off the hot water button and open the steam knob to rinse the steam boiler. When it starts to go to steam, turn off and turn on the hot water button again. Pump out another 16 oz. Repeat this process with the steam knob until you have emptied the water tank. Descaling is complete. Go to your menu and scroll to "reset descale", push the enter button and chose "Yes" and push the enter button. Now it will tell you we next to be descaled.

We dont have a manual for our Saeco Magic comfort coffee machine and the declcify message is up on the screen. What do we do?


Hi
Enter the menu by pressing the menu button. Scroll down until you reach “water hardness” and then press the menu button to activate. Scroll down to the hardness of your water (chose 4 to be safe) and press the menu button again for the computer to remember. Push escape (esc.) and scroll to “Descale) about 4 up from water hardness, and push enter.

My machine is brand new and when I plugged it in for the first time, the light comes on but the water won't heat up.


Press the coffee button to fill the boiler, then run the hot water cycle for about 5 secs. If machine still does not heat then the thermostat needs to be reset.

No coffee is coming out of the machine...


in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!
