Saeco coffee machine with a red blinking exclamation point light won't make coffee, how do I fix it?

When the red exclamation point is flashing slow, something is not where it is supposed to be, bean hopper lid, door, brew mech, water tank empty, dregs box or water tray on dregs container is full. If the red exclamation point is flashing quickly, open the steam valve for pump priming. If pump turns on, and water passes correctly, the light should go off and return to heating stage. If not, we have a blockage or a pump that is not working correctly.

Water not heating

If it's full of water & the red light is on, check if the maker is heating up the warming plate..if not, odds are you may have a bad heating element. Brewing cycle won't start without it.

Cleaning coffie pot

You can run a cup of vinegar through a brewing cycle.
This will clean everything. a particularly dirty machine run through twice. Just be sure to run clean water through a couple times to rinse any vinegar residue out of the machine. It will be like new again.
good luck!

I was cleaning the coffee maker. The next day the lights wouldn't turn on, so I think water got inside it. But now it's working. Is it ok to plug it in unattended or could it short?

Dry it well. Then it *should* be fine.
You might put the cm with a desiccant, like microwaved rice or those little moisture boxes that come in pill bottles. Leave it for a day or so to soak up any remaining moisture.
The lights/controls of the cm actually run at a low wattage; a malfunction there should not be dangerous unless something causes the heating elements to come on. They are built to be okay if they're on with no water/dry pot, so as long as the cm is away from anything flammable--standard procedure for a cm anyway--it shod be fine even if it turns itself on.
Another option, and the one I recommend, is to go buy a new cm. You should not have to worry about the antics of your small appliances. A new cm will be cheap--and safe--and would set your mind at ease.

No water

This seems to be a common problem with this rig. So far, I've helped 13 people on this site with exactly the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heat on the plate and no dripping water.

The KM7000 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at

Gevalia CM-500 12 cup problem.

Underneath the hot pad that the carafe sits on, there are two thermal fuses that are inside tubes that are clamped to the heating element with spring clamps.

Remove the bottom of the unit (5 screws), unclamp the thermal fuse tubes, slide the tubes to one side and check the each fuse with an ohmmeter. If one of them is open, that's your problem.
