"Fill System/Press Steam"

I have already seen this problem posted but no solution.  I try to get a cup of coffee and it grinds...drops maybe 2 drops of coffee...then says "Fill System/Press Steam" even though water and beans are full.  I pressed steam....tried again...and the same thing happened.  It seems to me I read somewhere that there are some special contacts that need to be cleaned....deep inside the compartment where the water/coffee ground tray goes...but, I cannot find anything about it.  Please help...I'm dying for a cup of coffee!

    mnual suggests checking foaing divice ln the water container. see to me that it was ok, but still getting same message "fill system"

  • mycatscoffee Jun 10, 2008

    I have the same proplem and additionally the rinse button does not work properly. Water comes out the steam nozzle, and not through the cofee spouts. I can get steam and a tea portion, but nothing from the coffee spouts. My low water indicator is fine and there are no stuck beans. It seems to be like there is a blockage in the water getting to the coffee spout. Any thoughts on how to fix this? I have an older C3000.

Remove the tray at the front of the machine. Look inside and you will see a rubber flap which separates the right and left side of the machine. Gently lift this to the right and look inside to the left (a small mirror like from a womans compact and a flashlight will help you see in there.) You will find a small circular screen (about the size of a half dollar.)  You need to wipe ALL the coffee grinds off of this screen. That should fix the problem. If you use dark beans, you are probably grinding them to fine and some of the oily residue is sticking to this screen. Try grinding the dark beans more coarsely. Only change the grinder WHEN IT IS GRINDING by adjusting the litlle knob in the box where you place the beans. If the problem started just after changing the filter you may have air in the water line and it needs to be flushed. Try running the tea portion hot water until it clears. These suggestions were given to me by Capresso and actually worked for my machine. Good luck. Gary

    I had this problem "If the problem started just after changing the filter" and noticed no water was leaving the tank. I took the new filter out and compared the water flow through the old to the new and the water flowed easily from the outer input area to the inner output area in the old filter but no water flow at all through the new filter. I put the old filter back in and all the problems went away. Could my new filter be defective? It was a new clearyl filter for my S9.

    My wife and I had a similar problem. She cleaned the 2 nozzles where the coffee comes out with household vinegar and it works.

  • nick ferrence Jul 23, 2015

    By the way I forgot to mention my wife also took the trays out and cleaned the coffee grounds with a paper towel. Our machine is a Jura F9. Good luck everyone

Melissa Write's solution to the "fill water" problem in her post of 28 December failed to shift the float in my water tank, But I found that emptying the tank and blowing warm air into the tank from a hairdryer then giving the tank a smart tap next to the float dislodged the stuck float in a couple of minutes.

The system seems to get into this mode when it wants you to empty the steam chamber. If press steam does not clear the area, and no steam is coming out, the frother is blocked. You have to disassemble it down to the pipe - pull off the frother, the trim which hides the pipe, and reveal a plastic piece which is screwed on. Remove this plastic piece and the machine should steam properly. Clean or replace the plastic piece - you should see daylight through a pinhole in it.

I removed the water tank, took out the filter and shook as much water as I could out of the filter. The idea being to access any place flow could be restricted to the system. I replaced the filter, and filled the tank with hot water from the faucet. I don't recommend water hotter than that.
I cleaned the inside of the unit as best I could with long cotton swabs (the wooden type) and damp paper towels. Amazing how much gunk gets trapped inside there. I also made sure the tip of the steam port was not clogged.
I replaced everything and hit the steam button. It sputtered at first. The second time I pushed the steam button, everything started working correctly.
I'm an engineer but not a coffee machine repairman. But I think the hot water will help eliminate any air bubbles that might be blocking water flow. Good luck if you have this problem.

On mine, I found that the black float in the water container (in an oblong plastic box near the place where the water goes into the system) wasn't floating anymore thus making the system think that the water was empty. I had never cleaned the container (oops) so I took the reservoir off and poured vinegar and soap in it. That dislodged the float and I was able to fill the system by pressing the steam button. Then just for good measure, I ran the vinegar through the system. Works like a charm again. I think it's making more creame now -- It may be my imagination.

There was a little device that looks like a clear plunger that came with the S9 ... I've never used it, but it fits perfectly on top of the water intake on the side of the machine (with the water container removed).  I just have to figure out whether it is to ... push water in ... push air in ... or what.  Unfortunately, the manual came on CD ... and the version I have is for Mac OS 9, which I can't any longer open under the new OS.  
Anyone have a user's guide that can tell us how to use the plunger?

Will not brew full pot


Base from what you've said I think better for you to return this back since it never work fine , because you pay for it so that should work good...You can try checking first again the user manual for that and do the stpes there if its still didn't work have it replace.

Good luck.......

My coffee is weak. i have played with the grinder, placing it at different no. on the outside plus i have played with adjustment on the interior.


Hi
Check the grinds. If they are coarse you have a separated grinder. It usually means it needs to be replaced I have seen them on ebay, but if you can't find them, I have some. If they are not coarse, you have to make 3 coffees before the grind will take affect. After you change the grind you have to make 3 drinks before you will see a change. If you don't have a puck in your dredge drawer, you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit. Push the lever behind the door in the center top back to the +, then forward 1 click, and try that. There should be a full puck going into the dredge drawer that has the consistency of coarse sugar. If it very coarse its the grinder.

Coffee is too weak


Hi there,
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

I can't remember where to put the ground coffee. Is it in the same place as the beans but with the grind off?


No, ground coffee goes directly in the filter.
Fill the water to desired cups, and turn grinder off.

Hi,

try to set the grinder to grind little more coarse, you have to make 2-3 cup to get the new settings to work.

To get off the ventilate you have to press the button for hot water and make a cup of water.

Hope this will help you.

We use 'em every sunday at church - 1/2 cup grounds for every 10 cups water. Allowances: finer coffees will use less grounds, and the more you are making, the fewer grounds you need ( or vice versa- the less you are making, you may need to increase grounds a bit, as perk time will be shorter
