First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)

You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. The small cup that you are currently getting was probably set at the factory. Good luck

problem is overheating at a single point in the bottom of the milk container. Try cleaning the milk residue after each time you use it and the flashing red light disappears. This is a design fault. Nespresso are happy to keep marketing the Citiz but there is no fix - so the Nespresso "mess free" coffee machine is a bunch of flannel - good coffee all the same!

Sounds like it needs to be descaled. If this has not been done for a very long time, the scale will have affected the thermoblock and I may not return to full function. I only use Nespresso descale kit (not vinegar).

Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my
expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling.
The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or
espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale
builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow,
reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from
working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full
order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time
intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your
water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two
main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your
Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you
descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can
use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If
you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less
often than if you make cappuccinos.
Descaling products are widely available from stores
that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product
you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific
use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and
make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water
and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products
or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case
your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet,
then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for
espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the
instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has
been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I
descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee.
Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

In order to keep your Tassimo machine
operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three
months. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell
coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to
descale your Tassimo machine is intended for this specific use only. Mix
the descaling product directly in the water container, following the
instructions provided on the descaling packaging. Then replace the water
container on the machine. Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand,
insert the cleaning disc, bar code down and close the brew mechanism. As
soon as the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop
button. This will fill the brew cycle with descaling solution. Empty the
cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes. Then open the brew
mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place. Repeat
this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness.
Discard the remaining descaling agent from the water
container, rinse it well and refill with fresh, cold water. Clean the
machine by flushing water through it in the same manner and emptying the
cup as it fills. Make sure that all the descaling solution has been
completely rinsed away, and then flush two full water containers through
the machine before using it again. Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and
refill the water container and your Tassimo machine is ready to use.
Also, before you descale your Tassimo machine, always unplug it. Also,
never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive
cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Tassimo
machine. This method works for most espresso machines,
including some of these popular models: the DeLonghi Magnifica
EAM3200S, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400,
Gaggia 74507BCN Classic, Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi
PrimaDonna ESAM6600, the BC0255 DeLonghi coffee machine and the Krups Nespresso CititZ XN 7006.
