    you're on your way to the deadly Error 8 message...when you'll have to start unplugging the damn thing to get it to start back up. Then it'll always say error 8 all the time, make horrible grinding sounds, and you won't be able to use it. You'll call capresso, and they'll tell you it'll cost you $250 including shipping to fix it. UGH! i hate this expensive piece of ****.

I had this problem and I solved it by letting the machine dry out overnight. Before I turned it back on I removed the drawer and wiped the area inside the internal flap then I used the pressurized air that you use to clean a computer and blew out all of the residue. It has worked well since then.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE GRINDING MECHANISM ON MY SPIDEM TREVI EXCLUSSIVE ESPRESSO MACHINE. I HEAR THE MACHINE GRINDING BUT IT'S REALLY NOT DOING ANYTHING. ANY SUGGESTIONS


When the grinder spins free and fast it only means that fresh beans are not feeding into the burrs. This happens when:
1- Grind setting is too fine and beans cannot enter the grinder mechanism.
2- Use of oily dark roast beans can clog the ground coffee chamber and preven the fresh beans entering the grinder.
3- The ground coffee chamber outlet is clogged due to oily beans or too fine coffee setting.

When you cleaned the grinder you may not have cleaned the coffee outlet to the doser on the left. You can clean the outlet to open the passage of coffee grounds to collect in the dosing device..
After cleaning the outlet, you should next make sure that coffee grounds are not packed in the doser. The doser is inside the door right above the brew group.
To access the doser:
1- Remove water tank.
2- Remove the brew group.
3- Lay the machine on its back for full view of the doser.
4- Pull the doser door open (it is like an Attic door.
5- Keep the doser door open and clean the inside with a brush. The outlet from the grinder is on the right side with a wire wiper cleaner that moves across the grinder outlet fills from the grinder. This opening.
Use a brush to clean the doser.
On the left of the doser space there is a plastic flap that is pushed to the left when coffee grounds fill the doser.
At certain distance push back (1/4") the notch on top of the flap pushes the doser micro switch pin to stop the grinder. Push the flap gently to the left to make sure that it is moving well. With each push back of the flap, one can hear the feeble click sound from the micro switch.
When the above cleaning is done, try the grinding.
If the conical burrs have not been replaced for over 2500 grinds, it is time to do so.

The above grinder and grinder doser cleaning instructions are available as download files on the following page link:

One can find many useful maintenance guides on one page.
Good luck.

Jura Capressa -Tray will not go in, looks like something from above protruding down in the back so that the tray sticks out 1/2 inch (so machine does not work)


I had the same issue. Had to send mine in for repair. Cost $235.00. Nothing I did would fix the issue. They said there was a major blockage. They cleaned it and sent it back. They also fixed my issue with water leaking from the frother.

The "clean machine" edit will


How are you doing the clean cycle ?
You should put a tablet in the coffee grounds front lid.
Push the clean button on the inside front panel.
The machine will ask you to open tap and empty tray along the way.
Make sure it does the full cycle.

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

All water directed to Frother/ Water nozzle on Impressa C%


The Multivalve seems to be stuck. When you start up the machine you should hear the multivalve turning 2 times, if it`s silent, the valve is defective. This valve is important to guide the water in the right direction. Contact your servicedealer and let them have a look. There`s also a small chance that the electronic board are sending wrong or no signals to the valve

Less water than supposed to be


Hi
The sieve in the brew unit appears to be clogged, you say you have cleaned under the flaps, but are you sure there`s nothing left on the sieve? Clean out all coffeegrounds you find inside there. Also, check the grinder setting; it could be you have set it to fine. This usually makes the coffee barely dripping from the spout. After cleaning and adjusting the grinder setting, you should run a cleaningprogram.

In worst case; the sieve has to be taken out and cleaned, this is not recomended to do without training.

Instructions from Capresso:
-pull out the drawer
-look inside the unit where the drawer has been removed and look for a flap (it's really the first thing you see on the left side)
-without moving the flap, reach your hand under it and up until you feel a flat surface
-this surface will have grounds on it
-feel for screw in middle
-take paper towel and wipe off grounds
-repeat until paper towel is clean
-replace drawer and done!
-do this about once a week to prevent this

Contact Jura, this is a recall issue and they will replace it for free. Beats getting burned from the steam. The new part has fewer pieces and is easier to clean.

After contacting Capresso Customer Service - the solution is simple. You pull out the drawer and dump the grounds. Look into the machine and you will see a plastic flap. Reach your hand in and up behind the flap and you should feel a round screen. Using a paper towel, clean off the screen. Replace everything. Works like a champ! So glad I didn't have to return our 3 day old machine!

The rep states that this is a common problem - asked him why it isn't in the manual and he had no explanation! Plus I can't believe that someone else didn't post this solution since it is soo easy!
