Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Hi, I have just removed the water tank to rinse (after de-scale), and the grey magnetic plastic water indicator piece and the small clear plastic lid have both fallen out of the holder. I replaced them, but the small lid now doesn't stay in the holder. So every time I fill the water tank, both pieces float out. Therefore the machine thinks there is no water in the tank. I have tried replacing a number of times, but can't recall which way up the grey plastic indicator is supposed to go (flat side up or pointy side up), and if I have the clear plastic lid on properly. The little arrow on the lid points to the back of the tank, but doesn't appear to fit tight enough now? Your help would be appreicated.

The flat side should be up, take some glue on the plastc edge and put it back, the little arrow should point to the back of the tank.

Keurig b60 won't dispense water


Your b60 may need to be descaled. There might be scale built up on the water level probes in you machine. I have listed the directions below:


Brewer De-Scaling Instructions
Brewer Model: Elite B40 ' Classic B44
Special Edition B60 ' Platinum B70
To begin, you will need the following:
• 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar
• Large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup)
• Access to an empty sink
PREPARE
Step 1:
Empty the water in the Water Reservoir.
Step 2:
Disable "Auto Off features."
FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1:
Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar
into the Water Reservoir.
Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle.

DO NOT USE A K-CUP
, just press the BREW Button. Pour the contents of

the large mug into the sink.
Step 3:
Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup until"ADD WATER"

is indicated.
Step 4:
Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.

Step 5:
Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the
Water Reservoir thoroughly.
RINSE
Step 1:
Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.

Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and
water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the
large mug into the sink.
Step 3:
Repeat brew process until "ADD WATER is indicated.

Step 4:
You may need to perform additional water brew
cycles if you notice any residual taste.
NOTE:
If "DE-SCALE" is still displayed after
completing the procedure, repeat the
descaling procedure above.

Coffee maker won't work. says it needs to be de-scaled.


De-scaling is normally done through the use of vinegar. I prefer the white vinegar myself. This is simple. Instead of water, place a quart of vinegar in your water tank and no coffee grounds in the basket. Start the cycle. When it is all done, repeat with ordinary clear water, again no grounds in the basket. When this cycle is completed. if yours is a integrated tank, turn the coffee maker up side down to remove all liquid. Refill and enjoy your freshly de-scaled coffee maker.

Presto - de-scaled.

I trust you will find this solution adequate. Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

The rinsing and coffee making has slowed significantly. The pressure in the water system appears low.


232,
Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

Low water light is on,


Hi
If you lift the water tank out, check to see if there is a magnet in it. It looks like a grey rectangular plastic tube with a flat top and round bottom. It goes in a slot in the water tank. There should be a clear cap that covers it when in the tank. If it comes out the machine will not work.

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 watertank message will not go away


This happened on my unit. There is a magnetic float in the tank that rises when the tank is filled. On my unit, the float (which is supposed to be sealed) took on some water, and stopped being bouyant. I had to break off the clear plastic cap that keeps the float in place, remove the float, and ***** a tiny hole in the float and squeeze out the water. Now (since I have a hole) I have to do this repeatedly - every week or so - though its easy to remove the cap now. Still looking for a replacement part.

Drips hot water!


Hello,

Most likely you need to de-scale, but you might want to try plugging the hole with bubble gum and see if that solves your problem in the short term.

You can de-scale with a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar. RINSE MANY TIMES WITH CLEAR WATER AFTERWARD.

I suggest that you use a VERY well chewed piece of non-mint flavored gum, hope you're friendly with each other - otherwise just run water through it a few times.

WAter fill message will not clear


2 things to check ..when was the last time you properly descaled the unit ? If the waterflow is restricted inside the lines and the boiler ,the interior flow meter signals the computer to show insufficient flow ..clean /descale .
If magnet floats to the top of the small lid that keeps it in the little chamber . If it does not float or partially sinks it is defective ..leaks through a tiny hole in the plastic and water filled the grey magnet with some water (adds weight ) then rusted the strong magnet into rusty magnetic powder and loses magnetic force .
You can use a new good strong magnet to see if the sensor is good by placing it where the old one was .Light should go OFF
The overall important service is to keep the scale out of any machine as much as you can .
