Check for a float lever inside the reservoir if there is one. It may be stuck. Just wiggle it and it may work again. I dunno if this is the answer but hope it helps!

SOURCE: stops brewing before all water empties from reservoir

I went to Hamilton Beach site and read the troubleshooting. I followed there cleaning instructions and reduced grind time on my coffee and the machine is working perfectly again. I stressed over this problem for a long time before following their operating instructions. Have had the machine for over two years now and it's back to working perfectly. i.e. Run a pint of white vinegar through it. Wait 30 minutes and run another full vat of water....wait again and run another full vat of water. If you're grinding your own coffee, you may be grinding it too fine. Otherwise Hamilton Beach recommends the kind of coffee to use. Also the problem maybe too dense of a filter. This is all info I got on the H. Beach troubleshooting site. Good Luck !!! Mine is back to working great !

SOURCE: Empty light on espresso machine won't turn off and tank is full

I have the same machine. I just went on the coffee geeks website and it is easily solved. Just add a few grains of salt to the reservoir - the sensor cant detect water that is purified - strange but true as four grains and it fired up just like that.

SOURCE: FME4 won't brew; thinks there's no water

I believe that the description you made of the horizontal dashed lines indicates that the unit needs a descaling. If it also says "CALC" on the LCD display, then that probably means that calcium build-up needs to be removed. I am looking for my instruction manual because my machine is currently doing the same thing and in the past I've followed the instructions to descale it using a solution of water and vinegar. The weak acid from the vinegar removes the calcium deposits in the machine. Use distilled water and you won't have to descale it!

SOURCE: I have had my hamilton

On your machine there is maybe inside water reservoir a hose or tube that goes down to bottom, or suppose to go down to bottom, to **** up all water. Look inside and see if hose is going all the way to bottom, maybe it got hung up or crooked. Please let me know, glad to help, thanks mike ( mr bean man )

The floating magnet in the tank is probably not floating. Jam a bit of plastic underneath it and try again

How do I disable the low water warning on a Krups coffee maker?


Locate the float in the tank that is no longer floating and jam something plastic underneath it so that it will communicate to the float sensor that there is water in the tank.

How do I descale this coffee maker(FME4) if it won't brew because it thinks there's no water. I put vinegar into the water reservoir as directed but how do I get the machine to start.


you just do the same thing as if you are making a coffee but if you don't have the water pump working you will have problems getting the water out

Doesn't always brew all the water, stops early


All coffee makers do this over time from calcium, lime, and mineral deposits building up inside the tubes and heating coil. Fill the reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar and run a normal brew cycle, turning it off and on if necessary to completely empty the reservoir. Repeat this 2 or 3 times with fresh mixture of vinegar and water until it brews the reservoir empty without the need to cycle the power. Follow this procedure with plain water 2 or 3 times to clean the vinegar out. This should get it working like new again. It's best to use distilled water for brewing coffee as distilled water does not have the minerals that regular tap water has and therefore will not clog up the machine.

I have a Krups FME2 coffee machine and when I fill it up with water, the screen shows that the water reservoir is empty? What the heck?


If there is a water level float in the tank it may be no longer floating, if you can shove a piece of plastic under it to lift it up that should trigger it to think it now has water.

Error message states no water, but there is...


Unplug the device and plug back in after 1 min. If it still fails, then you have a dirty water level sensor or the control circuit board is fried. Empty the water out and fill it with vinegar as full as you can without overflowing. Let it soak overnight and turn the machine on (without coffee in it). Turn off after 30 secs.Turn on again and allow it to finish the cycle.  Discard the vinegar. Run three more brewing cycles with water only and it will be OK to use. If this does not cure it, then the only cost effective way is to replace it.
