Posted Sat Nov 3, 2012, 4:03pm Subject: Anita quickmill boiler shut off
My quickmill shut off on its own no red or green light. I fill the water tank and the float is not stuck but sometimes the light won't come on green or red the only thing that works is if I take the tank out then replace it sometimes upwards of five times then suddenly the light comes on. What do I need to look at or replace?

Welcome to CoffeeGeek!
It seems to me that the switch that controls the water level of your tank and shuts off the machine when the level is too low is stuck sometimes. I don't know the mechanics of the Anita very well, but my Opus One has a weight activated, spring-mounted safety switch at the bottom of the cubicle where the water tank is placed, and when water level is too low the switch is released and the boiler is turned off. I suppose the Anita has a similar safety switch.
