Saeco Magic Deluxe flashing water light, & not draining

I inherited a saeco magic deluxe that does not drain water. That is, with the tank full, and machine powered on, the empty water tank warning light flashes and the green temp light comes on after about two minutes. When the steam/hot water knob is turned counter clockwise the pump powers on but nothing comes out. I have made sure water freely flows from the tank when the button underneath is depressed, and I have repeatedly re-seated the tank onto the machine while the pump is running by lifting the tank 1/2 inch and then letting it back down. When I do that a few tiny air bubbles come up, but thats about it. What should my next troubleshooting step be, and if it turns out to be a bad pump, where can I purchase one? Thank You!!

The pump could be out or it could just need primed. Saeco sells a cheap hand pump that you insert into the receiver and force water into the system while the pump is pumping. This will often prime the pump and get things going. Call 1 800 933 7876 and tell one of the customer service reps you need a priming pump.

No it cannot. I am not sure why you would want the water hotter. It is designed to be at the perect temperature for passing through the brew group for coffee brewing, its kind of a simple science. 
If your machine has been producing less hot coffee gradually, that marks an issue. Try descaling the boiler per the manufacturer's inscrutions even if the warning light isnt on. The other option is that the thermal fuse mounted to the boiler is bad and turns off the boiler prematurely, those cost about $15 and are simple to replace. Lastly, the boiler heating element may be 'burnt out' new boiler is $120+

Open the door on the right. The brew unit is the thing with the handle that has the push on it. You need to push on the upper left side of the brew unit until it clicks. There is an outlet spout on the opposite side of where you are pushing. It goes into an intake port that needs to be lubed, so the outlet spout will slide in without pushing back. That should take care of the missing brew unit.

If you haven't cleaned the brew group, or decalcified the unit I would start there. This is something I do every 4 to 6 months (or anytime I notice the flow of coffee to start to slow down). This normally restores the flow to the original flow level. If you have already done these things you may want to give Saeco support a call and see what they suggest. They are extremely helpful, although very difficult to get on the phone as the phone system they use is horrible and hangs up after you hold more than a certain amount of time.

Display on Saeco Magic Comfort+ says "Fill Watertank" even when tank is full. Removing and resetting does not help.


Hi
This is usually a magnet in the water tank or sensor inside the machine. First do you have the grey magnet in the water tank? If no magnet in the tank, that is the problem. The magnet floats when the tank is full and sinks when its empty. It sends a flux signal to the sensor inside the machine. If the sensor is bad inside it doesn't pick up the flux field and you get the "water tank empty" display.

How to drain coffee machine saeco s-class incanto classic


Subject: How to drain boiler of Saeco Incanto Deluxe
I got an answer from Saeco Customer Service as follows:

-----------------------------------------------------
Good Afternoon,

All you need to do is have the machine turned on and up to temperature. Make sure that you have a full tank of water as well. Make sure the machine is set for hot water, then turn the knob on the side of the machine to start water flow. Once the water is flowing out, remove the water tank and, leaving the knob turned open so that the water that's in the system drains out. Once water stops coming out, close the knob and shut the machine off.
The water is now drained from the system.

Thank You,

Water leaking from the tank & down the outside of the Magic DeLux


I have a Saeco Magic Deluxe that does/did the same. The water tank, when filled would empty down the side of the machine and all over the counter top.

I recognized that the lid on the water tank, when pressed firmly in place, created a back-pressure because air was not able to get into it and level out the pressure. I've resolved this problem by leaving the lid slightly ajar allowing air to circulate into the water tank itself. I've also thought about drilling a tiny hole into the lid itself but have not done that yet for I don't want to comprimise the plastic.

Filter in saeco magic delux


little magnet keeps that red light from coming on.

magnets probably gone bad, need to buy a new water tank. As far as i know saeco does not sell the magnets seperate.

could also be a blockage sending the machine into alarm.

Dregs light stays on (even when emptied!) - can't use machine


the various lights are controlled by either magnets that hit various sensors or microswitches.

the dreg light i'm pretty sure is a microswitch.

Its pretty common for them to go out, they're standard in almost all super automatic machines.

that particular switch is a pain in the **** to get to. You can order them direct from saeco, but if you can, it may be easier to send it out.

There should be a microswitch for the grind box, for the drip tray, for the water tank, and there should be one if i remember right for the grinder.

Its different for each model.

Hope this helps.
