How do I know if the carbonator is empty?

There are a number of indications that show your carbonator is empty:

  • When you press the carbonating button you will not see any gas going into your bottle of water
  • Even after repeated presses you don't reach the 'buzzing' sound
  • The carbonating button may stay down
  • The carbonator splutters, showing you have run out of CO2

Please note: SodaStream recommends that you keep a spare carbonator in the cupboard so that when one carbonator runs out, you simply swap the empty carbonator for the full one. That way, you'll keep enjoying fresh, fizzy drinks and can return the empty carbonator as you order your next gas refill.
