    The water heater on mine doesn't heat the water at all. No sound whatsoever comes from the machine that would indicate some heating element at work. I left it on for hours ( indicator light and pump works). I'm trying to find a place where I can have it serviced around Montréal. I suspect the problem to be electrical in nature but I could be wrong...

Yes try another button first.
If the machine is plugged in and the water comes out cold you could have a problem with the water heater (which is electrical on all espresso machines).

Lavazza espresso point gets hot and light come on but nothing happens when I hit the green buttons.

Might sound simple, but If you insert capsule, you only have a certain amount of time to hit button and make one. If you take too long it kinda resets. Has hapened to me.

Bypass doser doesnt work. I put grinded coffee powder in there and hit the bypass button, then the small coffee button, The machine starts but no coffee dripped but only hot water? Did I do something...

Hi, sounds like your pushing the wrong button or doing the process in the wrong order. If your putting coffee in and only getting water, then that tells me that is is dumping the coffee before it gets brewed. dazza

When I hit the Americano button, it comes out like an espresso, not enough water comes through. I've just descaled. How to fix?

The amount of water is programmed by holding in the button. Put your cup below, and press the button. Keep holding until you are happy with the amount of water that came out - and then let go.
Next time you use it, you just need to do the normal short press on the buttom.
(Both the Espresso and the Lungo button can be programmed.)

My Nespresso milk frother did not come with instructions. Is there some way to froth but not heat the milk?

they make one that has the option of frothing milk hot or cold. Blue light is cold. Red light is hot. The red light will always heat the milk. To get to the blue light, you need to hit the button twice.( First will go to red)

Cold shots

Remove the portafilter and press the brew button is the water that is coming out of the head warm or completely cold? If cold then one of the thermostats on the boiler is damaged.

Water is not comig out!

You might be inadvertently skipping the following step: after filling the container and switching on, after the blinking stops I believe you are supposed to lift the top lever and ... before putting in the coffee, press the "cup" button for about 5 seconds so that water is primed to come out. You do this every time you turn the machine on, NOT every time you make an espresso. I had the same problem as you did and then looked carefully at pictoral instructions and realized I was skipping this crucial step!
