Nespresso u, all the lights are flashing and the pod doesn't release automatically.

All three lights are flashing and I have to move the sliding part above the pod to release the pod or it just keeps going and going.

The machine has started the "decalcification" process.
When the three lights are flashing just press the three buttons at the same time (with three fingers) and relase when you hear a beep. After that your all good.
This happens when you press the three buttons at the same time when cleaning for example.
Hope it helps!

My nespresso machine stops long before it should.


Most Nespressos that I have worked on have an auto programme function. Put the pod in and a cup under it, press AND HOLD the button down until desired quantity is in the cup. Release the button, that should programme it to deliver that same quantity next time.

Flashing nespresso


Not a fan of nespresso, we have their units and the company does not make parts or service info available. Plus accessing the internal parts requires a special tool. If you haven't had the unit very long they will most likely warranty it, and if your nice enough they may just replace it, was only able to get them to do that one time though.

No, that's wrong. The setup on the Sonata doesn't normally require messing with the shift lock release at all. I had the same problem tonight for the first time after owning the car for a year and a half, that's why I looked up this issue.

If you buy pods regularly, just call Nespresso and explain it to them. They will probably send you out another one.

Our machine does not puncture the Nespresso capsule - so we only get murky water.


I just had the same problem with my new (less than one month use) Nespresso U. (the top of the capsule doesnt puncture and only water comes through). I called Nespresso customer service and a very helpful man suggested I run water through three times by pushing the top slider open with the Longa button pushed and then closed without a capsule in the chamber. That released the air bubble and now I am enjoying a wonderful cappuccino again! The customer service is fabulous, there was never a suggestion of charging me and I was told that Nespresso will send me a free loaner machine if anything goes wrong in the future that can be readily fixed over the phone. The Nespresso U is the best thing I ever bought.

Nespresso machine does not punch hole on the capsules after close


This problem is most likely being caused by air being trapped in the system. To fix this, please follow the following steps: -

- Turn on the Machine, ensuring there is water in the tank
- Wait until the light stops flashing and the machine is ready for use
- Lift the silver lever on top of the machine into the upright position
- Press the coffee button on your machine
- Push the silver lever back, away from you, and hold it in this position for 3 seconds
- Press the coffee button again to stop the water flow

This procedure releases the air blockage in the system and your machine should function normally again.
