Question about Saeco Easy Espresso Machine
The red light on the front of the machine blinks all the time, even though all the components are in place. I have tried removing them and replacing them with the machine on, so please don´t suggest that. Also, sometimes (even with the blinking light) the hot water comes out and sometimes it does not. I guess i should mention that at first the brew unit would not fit back into the machine, so I opened up the machine and turned the dial from the inside until the brew unit fit back into place. But the red light still kept on blinking.
Aha! The lose piece was indeed the problem. Getting it reattached was time consuming, however. I spent about 5-7 hours today trying to get everything apart and get the piece put back on.
In the future, I will be more gentle with this machine, especially when putting the brewing unit back in after rinsing it out. (Do rinse it out, by the way, about once a week. Otherwise the quality of coffee you get will gradually get worse and worse.)

The blinking light is a warning that something is not right.
-It will blink when the espresso waste basket is full. sometimes they stack up funny and it appears full and light blinks.
-second the beans don't always fall into the grinder from the hopper. They just need a gentle nudge
-Third it may be low on water.
-Four if you don't push the door closed on the fromt and ensure the spout where the coffee comes out is pushed in to the reciever inside the door the light will come on.
For me it has always been on of these four things.
Once I got the hang of the little nuisance everything works great. I love my machine and would buy another.
I have one or two espresso's a day,
