    The indicator light of my SENSEO® coffee machine flashes

    If the indicator light flashes rapidly, go to Section A
    If the indicator light flashes slowly, go to Section B
    For SENSEO® Switch, see Section C

    Section A: Indicator light flashes rapidly

    If the indicator light of your coffee machine is flashing rapidly, check the following solutions:

    Too little water
    Make sure that the water in the tank is filled above the minimum level

    Water reservoir is not place correctly
    Check the positioning of the water reservoir to make sure that it is attached correctly to the coffee machine. Refer to your user manual for further instructions. 

    Float fell in the water
    Check whether the float is stuck in the water reservoir. Empty the water reservoir and shake it a few times to release the float (see image for an example of the water reservoir float).

    Water reservoir is dirty
    Clean the water reservoir with hot water and some washing-up liquid.

    Room temperature is too low
    Make sure that you place your SENSEO® in a room where the temperature is above 10°C. Let the coffee machine adjust for 1 or 2 hours and then try again.

    If the above suggestions did not help to solve your problem, please contact us.
