Question about Jura Capresso Impressa E8 Espresso/Coffee Maker

Clean machine/machine ready light won't go away

The 'clean machine/machine ready' light won't go away even after going through the entire cleaning process twice. At the end of the cleaning cycle it says to 'press rinse' instead of 'empty grounds' like the manual says it should. After I hit the 'rinse' button, it immediately returns to the 'clean machin/machine ready' message. This same thing repeated after cleaning a second time. It also repeated after unplugging the unit for 12 hours.

    I have the same problem. I have gone through the cleaning process a dozen times or more and the "clean machine/machine ready" light comes back every time. Bought this E8 re-furbished in July '05. This is the first time it has not come back to "ready" after the cleaning process. It too does the "press rinse" command at the end of the cleaning cycle instead of coming back to the "ready" stage.

    Can I still use the machine in this state to make coffee drinks??

    Same here... started happening about 6 months ago... I was able to run the clean cycle 5 or 6 limes in a row, and it was finally happy. But the request to "clean machine" came back a few months ago, and I have not been able to get it to go away. Still makes good espresso though.


    I wonder if there's a way to reset the electronics so it forgets it "needs" a cleaning cycle? I tried the unplugging trick as well. Didn't work for me either.


    Machine was bought new Dec 2004.

Have experienced the same problem for the last nine months. Was finally able to solve it today by following this guide: http://www.wholelattelove.com/articles/jura_capresso_cleaning_guide.cfm
Having cleaned the shower screen I ran the regular cleaning cycle and now the display indiucates "Ready" as it should do.

Having same issue. Spoke to service @Jura. Said it could be computer problem or very dirty inside (where you cannot get access). Would need to return to Jura in PA for service/repair (postage paid from Jura) but quoted $265.00. They could not tell if my machine was in warranty except by sending a receipt (so I guess registration doesn't matter.)

Twice now my solution to remove the clean machine light was; to go through the whole clean cycle (even though it still says ready/clean after I was done), following the clean cycle i powered the machine off and unplugged it for about 30 seconds. Plug it back in and turn it back on. It will not say heating or press rinse only ready/clean then follow the cleaning instructions.

I had the cleaning cycle problem with my S95 for 2 years. I eventually solved it by simply turning off the machine before turning it back on to start the cleaning cycle. No problem since! The service centre kept telling me I must be doing something wrong but could not suggest what it was. Graham Humphries

We have had this problem too. We found that once you change the filter and do the filter change routine then cleaning will clear the message...go figure!

SOURCE: cleaning machine propt will not go away

I have the same machine and had the same issue all day yesterday. Tech support will tell you to clean the tamper (round disk behind the tan/gray "flap"), which you should do. That didn't do it for me, however, so I kept cleaning. I cleaned out the chute where coffee powder goes. Then, after turning off the machine and removing the tray, I used my fingers to go up/under/behind as much as I could get to. I found the motherload of old coffee grounds. It's hard to describe where, but it was all around that metal area in the center. Just keep poking, but use your fingers so you can feel where the coffee is. I tried q-tips, but that didn't work..you have to feel it. After I got all the gunk out, I ran a cleaning again - no tablet - and it no longer said "press rinse" at the end of the cycle. It asked me to dump the tray, and then it went to "ready"! Yahoo - saved a bundle in shipping and repair.

Clean light on kitchenaid kcm112 won't go off


I found that the following clears the "clean" word that is flashing:

  1. Hold MODE and the + button for about 5 seconds.
  2. After the coffeemaker chimes 2 times, release the buttons.

Hopefully, the clean message will go off.

As an aside, the warmer plate is so awful looking. I am replacing this coffee maker (KM222) with another (and cheaper) one.

Coffee bean light won't go out when full and coffee won't work


Hi coffee friend I have just answered this question. I think
After you have done all the cleaning you have done, you can try this: do check that all knobs correctly set. That the steam spout is closed. that the water tank sitter correctly
Disconnect from power, wait 2-3minutes connect again and hope for the best.

Had the same issue. You have to let it run a cleaning cycle before before the light goes off. Turn machine off, empty pot, add 4 cup cleaning solution and hit the clean button (not the brew button). Let it go through this slow cycle like it says in the manual and it should reset itself.

Jura f7 clean message wont disappear after running cleaning cycle


First you need to be sure that the cleaning program is completed, if you cancel the program before it`s completed the machine will keep asking for cleaning. If you have tried to run the program several times and the alarm still lights up, then there`s a software problem. The only way to reset this is then to change the Main electronic board, that is very expencive and you should really concider to live with the alarm

"clean" light will not go out


In my experience with this coffeemaker, the Special Cleaning Cycle light doesn't illuminate until the machine is very clogged up. The risk of ignoring this indicator and waiting too long to clean it is that by the time it does get cleaned the calcium deposits will end up clogging the check valve, thereby shutting down at once. Regular cleaning will prevent significant amounts of calcification and thereby result in hotter, better tasting coffee and less risk that the loosened mineral deposits will end up clogging vital parts of the machine if and when you do clean it.
If you notice, the inside of the lid to the water tank states that the unit should be cleaned every 30 days. This is true whether you see the cleaning indicator light illuminated or not. To clean the coffeemaker, you must add 20 oz of undiluted white vinegar per the owner's manual, then press the "clean" button. If you do not recall the last time the coffeemaker was cleaned and wish to start off on the conservative side, you may wish to use a diluted solution of white vinegar (about 1/3 to 2/3 water).
The coffeemaker will brew part of the vinegar, then pause 30 minutes, then restart itself. Use clear water to rinse at least two times after the process completes. This will take about an hour in all. If you are in a hurry, you can just run vinegar through a regular "Brew Now" cycle; however, this will be somewhat less effective.
When adding fresh, cool water to rinse the vinegar out, make sure to allow a few minutes to cool down between rinses because the element is extremely hot. You may wish to use a vessel other than the carafe to fill the water tank while rinsing because it will take less time. Otherwise, the carafe may crack or shatter if you take it off the hot plate and fill it with cool water straight away.
Finally, I suggest you visit MRCOFFEE.com and put the model number in their web search box. The Classic Edition Coffeemaker came in three varieties: MRX33 (black), MRX35 (brown) and MRX36 (red). The instructions are otherwise identical in operation and features. There will be a link at the bottom of the description to the user manual. If the model number no longer appears on their site, use your favorite search engine and type "model + manual + PDF" or terms to that effect.
