I turn the machine on and the light blinks and it will not heat the water. I have tried using a magnet to move the float, but the float is at the top.

Do you see a fast or a slow blink? If you see:

  • A fast blink: the machine has encountered some condition that prohibits it from engaging the heater element. This could be a low water level detection (the float being in the high position doesn't mean the Reed relais is also triggered!), some other malfunction or a power problem. To rule out the latter, plug the Senseo into another wall socket, preferrably another electric group.
  • A slow blink: your Senseo is feeling happy and is unaware of a problem. This may point to a defective heater element. If you do hear the rumbling noise of water being heated, it's most likely the temperature sensor - both are cases for the repair shop.

Why does my em69 coffee machine red light stay on?


There is most likely a problem with the magnet in the water tank and the machine thinks it is empty. New magnets are available in eBay for around $10.

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.

Light keeps flashing and water will not heat


there is a float at the side of the machine by the water level, if the float gets stuck the red light will continue to flash even though water is present. Use a magnet on the outside of the machine by the water and float level and raise the float when connected to the magnet and the light will stop flashing red rapidly

I turn on the machine, and the light just blinks on and off...no sound of water heating as with my other senseo. I took off the back, and all of the wires seem to be connected.


at the side of the machine by the water level you will see a float, sometimes this float gets stuck, use a magnet on the outside of the machine to connect with the magnet in the float and then slowly slide the magnet upwards, the float will follow the magnet and the light will flash slowly and the water will heat, if the light continues to flash rapidly you have not connected with the magnet - try again

The indicator light continues to blink rapidly


you are correct in thinking the problem is caused by the valve. Use a magnet to connect to the valve from the outside of the machine, slide the magnet very slowly upwards along the water level, the rapid flashing should stop and the water should begin to heat, if not try again as you have not connected the valve to the magnet

Senseo 7814 does not heat water and red light keeps flashing


is the red light flashing as though not enough water, if so use a magnet to connect to the valve inside the machine, the valve can be found along the water level where the float is. what is happening is that the float is stuck. by connecting the magnet to the valve and very slowly moving the magnet along the water level, upwards the valve will follow and the water will begin to heat as the light changes to a slow flash, if it doesn't work try again as you have not connected to the magnet

Steady blue light, blinking lights doesn't heat up


I read in another posted solution about a magnet in the grey float that is in the water reservoir. I removed the grey float and rubbed on the front of the unit by the steady blue light and it apparently resets the sensor. Presto Magic! it worked! Machine back to normal and operating perfectly.

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!

Watertank empty problem


Couple of things.

Magnet in the water tank could have gone bad in which case you need a new water tank.

2. Sensor for the magnet could have gone bad. Which case you need a new sensor.

3. Flowmeter could be dead in which case it won't feed water to the system, If thats the case its a new flowmeter.

4. Pump. If the pumps not working, it won't feed the flowmeter, which in turn won't feed the system. You'd need a pump in this case.


Its one of the 4. Unfortunately its not an exact science, its a trial by error type thing.

Cheapest way is to send it to a service center. They'll know right away when they open it up. They can also diagnose quicker.
