Hi

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.

Follow the bellow steps….…

1. Fill water tank.
2. Turn machine on.
3. Blue water light will blink.
4. Get a cup and put below steam knob.
5. Turn steam knob fully on (clockwise)
6. You will hear a machine noise, keep going...
7. Fill the cup with about 4 oz of water. I kept filling the cup until the water stopped coming out and the noise stopped.
8. Turn the steam knob back.
9. At this point, the blue light on mine stayed on, maybe it will turn off on yours? If not, turn machine off.
10. Pull out water tank and then replace.
11. Turn machine back. The blue light should be off now and the single and double orange lights should be on. Now it should heat up.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Why does the power light keep blinking


The blinking light is wrongfully indicating that there is not enough water in the tank. The sensor is a small magnet that is floating in a compartment at the bottom of the water tank. (The black square in the corner) You shold be able to see it. Check if it is stuck at the bottom and if it is floating in its chamber. If that is OK, the sensor inside the coffee maker that is reading the magnet might either have come faulty or dispaced (due to a shock?). That would need a disasembly of the coffee maker.

2000 vw beetle 2.0 L, low level coolant light...engine mil code 1256


not the pump but air in the system or a broken wire to the coolant level sensor
that sensor at the top of the radiator tank has to be completely immersed in coolant or the circuit is broken and the light comes on
same effect id the wire to that sensor is broken in the insulation

My sirena has blue blinking water light even though it has a full amount of water


Turn on the machine and turn the steam knob all the way on. Let it run until the light goes off. This primes the pump. It should run properly after that.

Blinking blue light won't shut off even when the water is full


you need to prime the machine. if the instructions for priming don't work (as they didn't for us), then try this:

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us when the manual's instructions to "prime" the machine resulted in no water leaving the tank to enter the machine:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

Water light can't be reset


I got my machine for Christmas and I have had the same problem almost everyday. Usually wiping down the water supply area worked but not today.. I have spent the past hour and a half trying everything I read online. Finally after reading the gray thing that floats in the water tank was a magnet I decided to maybe try to "reactivate" the magnent/sensor?.? I dumped all the water out and rubbed the magnet up and down the outside of the water tank making the gray block move up and down.. I even rubbed the magnent on the black surface where the water tank goes and the gray thing-e touches when attached.. To my surprise It worked!! It may have been pure coincidence..I dont know..but I figured I'd share anyway..It's worth a try!

Water light can't be reset


The problem is that the manual says "Press the on botton, the light will blink and priming will begin" but this is completely inaccurate. If priming is needed the machine will turn on, the "water" light will blink and nothing will happen.
What needs to be done is to turn the machine on and move the steam/hot water knob clockwise. The pump will activate and churn away and then stop. Just repeat this step until water flows to finish priming. HTH

Solis Palazzo - stuck in descale mode?


Are you refilling the tank during this process? You need to let in run dry, and then the buttons flash. Then, refill the tank with clean water, and let the tank run dry again.
