Flashing dregdrawer and descaling lights
Descaling helps, but right answer is grinder is stuck. Power down, restart, let it run its start up cycle. before you hit the coffee brew button, use a magnet in place of the coffee bean lid. this will trick it that I has a lid on it, then grab a 10mm socket with extension and ratchet. You will click the coffee brew button while turning the grinder counter clockwise immediately with the 10mm socket right after you click the button or same time if you can manage. Turning the ratchet quick enough for it to slide off as it the grinder starts to spin on its own. I did this twice, kind of a kick start to the grinder. it will dislodge whatever is blocking it and BAM, complete.The pump will not work if the grinder is not spinning to brew a coffee. so you have to jumpstart the grinder, grind the beans, tamp it and then the pump runs water through it.
DregDrawer full message won't clear
When you need to empty the grounds draw remove the drip tray and pull out the dregs draw - don't open the side panel or turn off the machine, - It works for me!!
IT IS LEAKING WATER INTO AND UNDER THE DREG
Sounds like your drain is getting plugged with coffee residue. Remove your brew unit. There is an injector that has 2 orange o-rings in it in the back. That pocket below it is filling with water. There is a drain that is to the bottom left that goes into the drip tray in front. Use a prob of some kind that is about 12" long that you can stick down and forward in the drain pocket. Work it towards the front and you should open the drain again. it fills with oils, so use some hot sudzy water and clean it out.
Starbucks Sirena espresso flashing blue light & does not heat up
I have the same exact problem with mine starting today, did you get this figured out? I'd love to know if it's fixable or not as I was planning on selling my previous machine. If it's an expensive repair, I'll just have to ditch this one and go back to my previous one.
Saeco wont stop descaling
In service menu there are 2 parameters you should look. First one - descaling - should be on 'done'. The second one is a counter - water used since last descaling - should be on 0.
Is there a way to factory reset my Saeco Xsmall settings?

Saeco Espresso machine - Empty drip tray (all the time)
aye that is true if you click the coffe making button directly after you have had it out you will be able to make a cup, as the machine has a 2 second response time.
Ok here is what i think:
As it registers the driptray I dont think its the sensor to it.
More i would think that its the CPU card that is not responding to that its clean.
I am sry but I have to ask this:
When it says emptie the driptray are you actually taking out the container that is located under the brewing unit, and not the "drip tray" were you put the coffe mugs?
Also when i think i have a sensor problem I allways take out everything. Brewing unit, dripwater container, dregbox, and the watercontainer. and have it out for atleast 2 minutes ( clean it under the mean time) and put it back again.
As I dont have the machine infront of me i cant be certain:)
