Question about Jura Capresso Impressa E8 Espresso/Coffee Maker

2 Answers

My Jura Capresso E 8 is stuck in open tap filling system. I open tap it says filling system, it says close tap, when I close the tap it goes back into open tap. Float valve looks fine, water is moving

Checked tank water flowes from it just fine, float is moving fine, screen on E-8 inlet looks clear, water is flowing through the system very well. Have E-8 unplugged for 15 min to see if it will reset and it did not.

The Open Tap/ Close tap loop is entered because the machine doesn't see any or not enough water flow when the pump is on. If you see that water is flowing out of the tap when open, then the flow sensor most likely is stuck. It's a round white plastic assembly with two water hoses an an electrical connection. It sits under the water tank and can be taken apart to clean it.. Make sure that the paddle wheel spins freely when blowing into the inlet after cleaning.See elsewhere on how to take the machine apart.

Open the tap with frother spout off. This happened to mine and I took the frother tip off and opened tap with tip off. Water filled and I closed tap...Machine returned "Ready". I heated water in microwave for three minutes- placed frother tip in hot water and all kinds of gunk came out. Lesson learned- Do a thorough cleaning of frother by immersing it in very hot water at least once monthly- even if you don't use it

SOURCE: My E-8 seems stuck

Check the water valve and water inlet nozzle.If the valve is not working or the nozzle is blocked then it will not let the water to run.Also see the water passing tube,if its blocked same problem can arise.:--- Disassemble the unit and check the internal parts:-- You will need about 4 different torx; hexagonal and possibly unique screwdriver bits to remove all screws. A plastic pry tool (used for mobile phones) will help where plastic lugs hold on the side and top panel. Empty beans; water store and remove the waste tray. You'll be able to remove the top panel after using a pry tool to disconnect two lugs at the front edge. Four screws hold the central back panel. Slide out a white key underneath the machine The side panels are removed by using a pry tool to release lugs all down the edge where these panels meet the front. Work slowly to take the side panels off. If you simply want to clean the brewing unit externally then just remove the panel on the water side. Find the water inlet just where the water tank sits. A screw here allows you to remove a plastic piece - but take a photo of how it slots in. This gives access to the lower end of the brewing unit. If the plastic piece is still it the way, you can ease off the water pipe from the water inlet and put it aside. You might just need to clear the inner chamber and path for two plungers with two large O-rings. You can see the water inlet nozzle with its o-ring which can perish and cause coffee or water to go to waste. The nylon water pipes - These pipes are held in place with a wire clip (remove with a flat head screwdriver). Ease the nylon pipe with its brass collar out of its socket. The pipe goes into an O-ring in the pipe's socket - this might fall out.The brewing unit is removed by undoing two obscure screws from the coffee grinder side. On the electronic side there's an optosensor (encoder) unit held in place with a steel clip. You might remove this to access one of the two screws. At the bottom of the brewing unit, the water inlet valve is fixed to the machine with a single screw. Next, on the water tank side, you'll see two lines of screws that hold the assembly in place. The middle screws of the screws allow you to separate the unit from the gears. The top two holes don't have screws. Now clean the water pipe,the water valve the nozzles.Also check O-rings the seal to O-rings.If there are loose,just apply car sealant to the side of seal.Then refit all parts and check. ----------------- For more help.Click this link directly to see disassembly instructions with pictures.Its not exactly same as your model,but its jura E series coffee maker only.So this will help.Click the link below:-- http://www.buessert.de/Technik/Jura-IMPRESSA-S95/Reinigungsanleitung.htm ---------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Filter change


this was absolutely the problem with my Jura Capressa E-8 machine. I followed instructions after changing the filter. I opened tap-machine stated that it was filling system- I closed tap when instruction. The open tap remained on because no water was filling system. I took the frother tip off and opened tap. Water filled system (container under frother). I closed tap without the frother tip. Machine Ready.... (I heated water in microwave for three minutes) I placed the frother tip in there and used a wooden skewer to ensure frother was clear of debris... Worked like a charm!

When turned on it will prompt "Open Tap" "Close Tab"


There are two possible causes. One is easy the other is hard. So try the easy one first. Remove the grinds tray completely, and place you hand in the cavity that it normally takes up. moving you hand slowly in, feel towards the top. you will find a little flap, past that flap there is the tamper and coffee filter at a slight angle. This may be blocked, so clean with a cloth.
If that does not solve the problem (and 90% of the time it does) then you may have a small spec of dust that is stuck in the water system, this needs to be flushed and cleaned. The best place to do that is with a Jura approved center. Unless you are technically minded. Your local Jura chaps sound like they need a k!$k up their behind

Open tap - filling system - close tap


Try using warm water in the watertank, important that the water is not too hot, it can cause leakage in the o-rings in the fluidsytem.
Repeat the procedure a few times, if nothing helps, turn off the machine and wait 1 hour and try again.

If you can`t get around this message, then the flowmeter needs to be changed.

My jura capresso says system fill...it makes a lot of noise


System fill is usually when the machine auto solenoid fill valve is putting water into the boiler. If it is making noise then the solenoid is clogged or there is no water getting to the solenoid.

I can't get past the 'open tap'/'close tap prompts on my Impressa


I had this problem with my Ena 3. The difference was that water was actually passing through the nozzle, but when I turned the dial back to the coffee symbol it would just tell me to open the tap again.

The solution was simple thanks to bergend's post, although I'd never have thought of it independently. I emptied the water tank and filled it back up with luke warm water instead of the cold water I had been using. After the first "system filling" round, the machine continued with the setup program fine.

So, to others with this problem: don't use too cold water in the tank for the first setup, even though the manual tells you to. Luke warm works great.

If you gind too fine, it will overload the pump and result in the "open tap" a few seconds into brew. Rinse and gind coarser to clear out malfunction.
