SOURCE: Empty Drip Tray message

Try to clip off the tray contacts and clean behind them. If they are dirty and wet on the backside the machine will keep asking you for Empty tray. Use a small screwdriver and clip them off from the inside of the tray

SOURCE: Hi Hope you can help me. I have a Franke Flair

The problem is probably a damage boiler heating element. It have brake out at a point so it making electrical contact with water and so with body and finaly with earthing of the electrical system and thus trips the main fuse which is the erthing protection system.
So you need to replace the heating element. You need also a good inspection to find if their is another reason why the heating element blow up or if its just because of exeed use of the machine.
Good Luck

SOURCE: Hi, Franke Saphira. 'Empty Drip Tray' message

If you keep the empty drip tray message, especially after making a drink or cleaning operation this points to a leak internally on to the drip tray contacts. or from the thermoblock leaking onto the wiring loom behind the front door panel. An engineer will be required to fix this as the correct seals will be needed. I have been a Franke Service Engineer for 15 Years.

How do you remove the back panel of the freezer to remove built up ice


Borrow all the picnic coolers you can, unload and turn off unit. You might even need a couple pounds of dry ice.

Then remove the defrost drip tray and empty it. Then its OK to defrost the unit. Trying to remove ice while operating is risky and you may end up with a replacement on your hands. Don't rush it, but sometimes a hair dryer on low can help (Just left inside the door) just make sure it is kept dry.

I was descaling my exprelia coffee machine.i was asked to empty the coffee grounds unit and the drip tray. I did that and the message keeps appearing. I even turned the machine on and off. Help.


  1. Thoroughly clean the small overflow area in the drip tray. Once the drip tray gets full water flows over a small rim into this small separate part thus triggering the sensor that tells that the drip tray should be emptied. Its waals may get a bit fatty/dirty, and so remains wet and keeps triggering the sensor.

DESCALING The Saphira has an integrated descaling program. The procedure takes about 60 minutes. Once started, the descaling procedure may not be stopped. • When acid-containing descalers are used, immediately remove any splashes or drops on sensitive surfaces, particularly from natural stone and wood surfaces. Also, take the appropriate safety precautions. • Turn off the Saphira by pressing the "ON/OFF" button. • Press the button "Descale" until an acoustic signal is heard. • Display: EMPTY DRIP TRAY (Fig.1) • Display: INSERT AGENT IN TANK • Display: PRESS DECALCIFYING Dissolve 2 DESCALING tablets completely in 2.5 cups of water in a vessel and pour the mixture into the empty water tank. Place a sufficiently large container under the steam tube and the coffee delivery outlet. • Press the Descale button • Display: UNIT DECALCIFYING • Display: PLEASE WAIT • An acoustic signal is heard. • Display: EMPTY DRIP TRAY (Fig.1) • Display: FILL WATER TANK • Display: PRESS DECALCIFYING • Press the Descale button • Display: UNIT DECALCIFYING • Display: PLEASE WAIT • An acoustic signal is heard. • Display: EMPTY DRIP TRAY • Display: CLEAN CONTACTS

It says driptray full, but it isn't? Any ideas?


Wevhave had ours into the shop four times for the erroneous 'coffee grounds' and drip tray' emptying. They have changed the mother board, chip in the door and even looked at the head gasket and carburettor settings but can't find the source of the problem.
What we have found latelt (it's Christmas so everything is closed for a month) is if we leave it overnight without power, 3 out of 4 times it resets itself.
It's apain if it plays up during the day but mornings brings us a good cuppa more often than not.lesson-get a deLonghi next time, this Saeco brand is more trouble than they are worth.
