    That's exactly right! I had this problem too, but when I simply ran the machine (making a double espresso) the message cleared. Thanks!

Even if you fill the tank with water, the machine will display this message when it is empty inside (the pipes, heating element, etc.) You need to prime it: run some water through it by running the steamer/hot water wand.  That should take care of it.

This happens when the pump gets plugged with scale. You can try descaling the machine if water can still be circulated through it. If no water comes out at all, then you will have to take out the pump and dip it in vinegar. This is not too difficult to do - I will post detailed instructions on how to do it separately

Hello there,
My machine did exactly this. Sadly, when I rang the people they said the reason the machine was confused about the water was because it was backed up with scale, they had to take it away and replace some parts. It's about £80 flat rate to get it fixed.
Sorry this doesn't really help much practically but if all else fails....

Nespresso d300 appears tap close and does not brew

It probably need descaling. However, if no water comes out at all, descaling is a bit hard. You may need to take out the pump and dip it in vinegar or another descaling fluid.

Will not feed water and says descale

Some machines shut down when they need to be descaled. Refer to your owners manual on descaling, then follow the instructions and your machine should go back to normal. These machines need to be descaled. Even the best water has mineral in it. Distilled water doesn't have minerals in it but makes the coffee taste different.

Have you tried descaling it. This message displays when it's time to descale and I don't know of a way to turn it off without descaling it.

Nespresso Magimix M300 'Fill Water'

it just means that the pump needs primed. Turn on at the wall and on the machine, wait until screen says ready (make sure water tank full), then turn steam handle on RHS to on (do not push the steam button). the pump will prime until water comes out of the steam nozzle. now turn off the steam handle and you are ready to go!

Just says 'fill water'

this has happened to me. try opening the steam wand (but without the steam function turned on) to force hot water out. that usually gets it going for me.
