Subject: Fracino Sight Glass Troubleshoot
 

Hi...We have a Fracino Contempo commercial coffee machine and the sight glass is showing a 'FULL RED' colour. Yes we ran low on water plus water is 'bubbling' out of the top of the Sight Glass. Can anyone advise on colouring and what that signifies ?

Just a guess.  If water is coming out of the sight glass, you might have a loose connection at the top of the sight glass.  Tighten it up and it might fix it.   water level is at red= full tank in a normal situation.  If there is a leak from a loose connection- you would see bubbling/water and the water level viewer not working correctly.

I am also showing a full read on my machine (different brand) but I believe there is a clog or something.  
even with a drained tank- it still show full.
