How to install paper

Without a manual, look at the picture of the calculator. Mount the paper, with the feed coming forward and over the top of the calculator. Insert the paper (recommend cutting it flush) into the feed slot in the back. Then use the paper advance key to advance the paper through the rollers. Unfortunately the manual is not available from the Staples website. Good Luck,

It turns on makes noise but it doesn't brew

  • Clean the puncture needle with a paper clip. It has 2 holes.
  • Turn unit off for a few minutes, remove and replace the water tank. Turn back on.
  • If all fails unplug, remove water tank, turn over and slap it on it's bottom. I know, sounds silly but it works!

My tassimo is spilling coffee grounds everywhere when it punctures the t-disc. I've cleaned the barcode screen, and every other nook and cranny numerous times. It still brews the coffee correctly, but...

Sounds like you've punctured the wrong hole. If it doesn't fit properly, and you find yourself having to try closing it several after inserting the t-disc, you might've made several puncture holes in the disk. THat's how I got coffe all over my machine the other day. Be careful to check the t-disc if it doesn't fit properly the first time.

Cd tray not ejectig

Take a Paper Clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out. Look on the side of the CD Drawer and you will see a tiny hole. Insert the Paper Clip into the hole to force the drawer open. That's why the hole is there.

Runs in reverse and forward ,when insert paper blades won't let paper in

unplug it and then use compressed air (duster can used for pc's) spray this into unit and into teeth area. This should dislodge any unseen material.. (TIP - don't put any staples or clips in the shredder) even thou it says you can - this can cause a jam as well as not recognize paper. I recommend you get Shredder OIL to use 1 a month to keep your shedder in good condition

I need to put in new staples. How do I do it?

This stapler does not swing open like a paper stapler. It has a little square metal piece at its heel (about the size of a postage stamp). Press in lightly on this metal piece as you move it up or down just a bit, to unhook it. Then pull out the piston and spring assembly, insert staples in the hole and replace the piston. You must use T50 staples (of various lengths). T35 and others will not fit. Good luck, Al K

Coffee won't pass through pod

the K-cup is punctured at the top and at the bottom.
you can take a corkscrew, and puncture a number of holes in the bottom of the K-Cup... verify there is a hole at the top... just before you start to brew... press down on the black arm over the cup... but not too hard...Lets see what happens... if it all looks good... no problems... then we need to either adjust the arm... or shim the k-Cup up a little bit...
you may also check the rubber Seal around the top pin that punctures the K-cup...
sounds like you lost your rubber seal around the top of the K-cup...

you can re-phrase after looking and testing....

The capsule lock system does not make holes in the capsule

-the short term solution-

1. take your affected capsule. set it on its un-punctured/un-perforated bottom (the thin foil surface) on a flat surface. the three puncture holes should be facing upward on the top of the capsule. by the way, if you shake the capsule you should hear the grounds sound dry as if the capsule was new.

2. find a thin small rubber band. size-wise, ideally, the rubber band will fit loosely around your thumb; with a very small gap between the rubber and your thumb.

3. put the rubber band around the collar of the capsule. the band should be put over the top of the capsule and pushed down until it stops flush against the flange (rim). if the band is correctly placed, the band will be just 1mm flat inside the rolled bare aluminum edge (rim).

4. insert the capsule in your citiz machine as usual. optional: you can orient one of the puncture holes at 12 o'clock position (top dead center) during the insertion process. this time, it will work. you will find the capsule will eject cleanly with the rubber band intact.

5. save the rubber band.

-which machines does this apply to?-

this is a common problem with nespresso machines introduced after 2010, specifically the citiz. i have not seen this problem on the pixie, yet. i would expect this issue on the lattissima plus.

i am assuming that the machine is otherwise functioning properly: meaning that the machine does not have an issue with the water pump, excessive scaling deposits restricting water flow, or some other major mechanical part.

-why is this happening?-

look at the capsule, the post-2010 machines bite new slightly rectangular indentations on the capsule around the top edge of the wall. this is new. nepresso changed the insertion mechanism in response to competitors bringing non-nespresso branded capsules to market: Douwe Egberts/Sara Lee "L'or expressO", Caffe Vergnana "ESPRESSO", etc.

this new insertion mechanism was supposed to thwart knockoff capsules, instead it is unintentionally thwarting your "real" nespresso capsule. the injector needles are not piercing correctly all the way. the injectors poorly lodge: deep enough to make puncture holes but not deep enough to allow water to flow freely into the espresso grounds compartment.

two things can happen:

1. the pressure release valve, inside the brewing chamber which prevents an explosion occurring if the coffee exhaust path becomes blocked, is activated and hot water overflows into your used capsule basket.

2. the hot water flows outside and around the capsule and into your cup as clear hot water.

-what do i do long term?-

contact nepresso. get your machine repaired or replaced. this is a factory manufacturing defect that has nothing to do with you, wear, use, or hard water. refuse to pay the $125 repair fee. demand that they fix the machine free of charge. they will send you a loaner in a plastic shipping crate to use while your is being fixed. you should not have to suffer without espresso or waste legitimately purchased capsules just because nespresso is in a legal fight capsule copycats. this is not your fault.

How do i add more staples

Hi, You cannot add staples while there are still some left in the cartridge, you will have to wait until it is all finished, the paper holder comes out from the bottom of the cartridge, remove the old staple paper holder, pay careful attention or put a mark on the outside, now you are ready to insert the new staples in the cartridge. First you need to remove the new staples and take out the wrapper carefully, line up the arrow with the cartridge and insert it into the cartridge then snap it into place, replace the cartridge in the machine when you are done.
Thats it.
This fix is for the small finisher that hangs on the machine, it`s called M1 Finisher.

Panosonic Electric Stapler does not staple paper!

It could be either jammed up with staples or the spring mechanism is shoddy.
