Hi,

If you try to make a cup of water(tea) and you hear the pump start but no water is comming then you have to replace the magnetic valve.

The "fill with water" message wont go off on my Lavazza Blue 2200 machine. I think it has something to do with the magnet but I do not know how to fix it. Please help! Thank you.


Jam something plastic or rubber under the magnet to lift it up, that will trick the sensor into thinking the tank is always full so you will need to use your eyes in future. Normally those magnets not floating can only be solved this way or tank replacement.

I have a Saeco Incanto classic, the low water light is on, tank is full, and I have steam coming from the steam wand.


try descaling the machine it could be that the water level switch is clogged with water calcium and not lifting when water is added, or it is defective and needs replacement. I hope this was helpful.

System fill message appears often


Hi, check the float in the water tank. It might be faulty or put back in upside down. Take the tank out and place a magnet where the float sits. If this works, then its the float. If it doesn't fix the problem, then its the sencor inside where the magnet is sitting. Easy to replace if you can get inside. dazza

Our tassimo will not stop blinking, all the lights. We have tried cleaning it but that does not work. Where do we send it for repair?


Hey I was having this same problem with blinking and I was shaking the tank trying to get it to engage when my husband, who can fix literally anything, discovered that the magnet in the tank has to engage with the read sensor inside the machine. This magnet is what tells the machine that the water is getting too low. Our magnet gets stuck out of place sometimes. He said it is getting weak and we need to replace it. He used another magnet and held it at the back of the machine beside the tank near the magnet to trick it to engage. It really works! Now, I wonder if Tassimo can send me the perfect size little magnet to replace it. HMMM!

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

Fill Water Tank But Water Tank is Full


Check the little black rectangular box which is in a plastic channel at the back. To work properly, the rectangular box, with the narrower end facing downwards, needs to be floating at the top of that channel. Apparently it's a magnet which signals the circuitry that the water tank is full. Make sure it's floating to the cap of the channel. If not, you can get a replacement one from Gaggia.

The Sensor Magnet for water tank does not float to the top


OK, first of all, I do not recommend my solution if you are forgetful or do not check your water level manually daily.

However, I found a super easy solution.

The way the unit works is to use a float in the water chamber with a magnet on the bottom. When their is enough water in the tank, the float rises and the magnet on the bottom floats to the top of the magnet chamber. When it floats up, it aligns with a sensor in the machine that allows the machine to operate. When the the water level lowers, so does the magnet and drops below the internal sensor disabling the machine with a "Fill Water Tank" error message.

To eliminate this error and allow the machine to operate, I simply popped off the lid to the magnet chamber with a butter knife and turned the water chamber up side down to let the magnet float fall out. Remember to empty the water first.

Here comes the highly technical part. Turn the magnet float upside down and slide it back into the float chamber. Since the actual magnet is on the bottom of the float it now is at the top allowing the internal sensor to turn off. No more error message!

The reason I do recommend this is because this completely defeats the purpose of the sensor and will most likely damage your machine if you run it without water. Keep you tank filled however and you will eliminate the frustration of a "float gone bad" keeping you from your morning caffeine.

"Fill water tank" prompt


this has happened to me too just yesterday (26 May 2013), I replaced the tank because I was lucky to have kept the spare bits off the old machine I had and it worked fine. Over time, the water gets into the float and corrodes the magnet. Best to just replace the magnet if you can or the whole tank. Good luck

Fill Water tank - Ventilate


Hi Mike,

Make sure the magnet flow up, if it flow up and you still get fill water tank then you have to replace the magnet.

If you get ventilate all time, try to remove the filter and try again.

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.
