Krups nespresso not heating water

I have krups nespresso essenza 2001.  Usually when turned on the green light flashes whilst water is heating up, turns  steady when ready and the water is hot..  Sometimes when turned on the green light is immediately steady but the water isn't heated.   we've had the machine about 3 months using it approx 5 times a week and this has happened twice now.

That is a faulty thermostat or a defective control board.

Contact Krups and have the machine replaced.

I opened mine when this did this - it also happened to my second Magimix Nespresso Manual machine. A short pipe carrying pressurized water had burst. I called Nespresso . parts were not available and they offered me a new half-price machine. We are talking a 4 inch piece of plastic tubing here. Shame on you Nespresso for encouraging me to throw what is otherwise a fine machine....

Nespresso Essenza D100 leaking water while brewing

Sounds like a gasket or seal gone or a split pipe.

If it's still under warranty - take it back for free service or replacement.

If you do have to attempt DIY, then a clear silicone sealant may save you the price of expensive gaskets.
Be very careful when taking apart - take notes or photos as it will help put it back together !
I usually put related sub-assemblies together with their screws in separate pots.

Light don't stop blinking .... Nespresso Essenza C100

My guess is that the Essenza is in 'Descaling' state. See section 7 of the essenza manual. To get out of it, hold both the buttons down for 3 secs. The lights will then blink at normal rate for a bit and then turn solid.

Nespresso essenza en90,o

I opened up my krups nespresso xn 2105 essenza C100N machine today. It was not starting up quick enough, so silly me decided to dunk it in hot water. My nespresso is an automatic, it has the on/off switch down in the back. My guess is the water that went in there is what is killing the house fuse now. So I really needed to open it up. Not knowing how to proceed, I looked at fixya first, No details yet. So here is what I did.
I looked at the screws, (post on fixya suggested they are screws) at the bottom. There is 6 of them. They look like rivets as if they have been made into round blobs after putting them in. So I took a dremel-like small grinder (a really small drill would do better) and made two small notches on the side of each one. Be careful not to chip away too much plastic of the machine ;) Then I used very small and long pliers to get them turning. That is actually easy, they are lightly set in plastic. Hard part is to keep the pliers from sliding off. Actually once loose the most of the turning I did using a narrow rubber tube, I guess you could use the rubber on the back of a pencil as well. So, remove 6 bottom screws, actually you can remove the sides now. This gives you access to the area where you can see all the wiring and many of the parts. For me I needed access at the bottom, so I removed two more screws near the bottom, and removed the bottom plate. The on/off switch for the automatic sits down the back of the machine, there is one additional screw (six pointed star shape) in the internals for this. I did pull off the switchy bit of the switch - do not do this as springs andcontacts fall out... Mine also still has water in there so I guess I found my problem.
Well, thet is how to dissassemble. I will have to find out how to reassemble tonight, to be able to get my wife het coffee in the morning ;)

Leaking water, does not close

I had the same problem with the nespresso krups xn20 machine. After calling the Nespresso service desk they substituted free of charge the water tank, which has a little valve with seal at the bottom. It turned out that the problem was not the seal of the water tank, but the seal of the machine (onto which the water tank is installed).
I solved the problem by using Teflon tape (same type as that used to connect for water pipes) on the water tank, applying it at the appendix which goes into the machine.
It's been working ok since then (couple of days). The only problem could be the wearing-off of the tape after some time (you will have to reapply it).
