Question about Nespresso C190 Espresso Machine

Krups Nespresso FNA2 coffe/cappucino machine

Hi - this machine can make espresso or cappusino coffees - as such there are 2 buttons (1 small cup and 1 large cup on the right handside to choose whether you are making an espresso or cappucino coffee. The difference is that the nespresso button delivers less water than the cappucino button for example. The problem is that when I pres the button indicating I want to make an espresso, the water does not stop flowing. So, it seems that whatever triggers the machine to measure the amount of awater needed doesn't work.

    Hi and thank you for your help - running the vinegar/water solution through it woked right away - I ran several large and small cups to clean it, left it overnight as you said and used it again this morning after running plain water through to remove any vinegar taste...

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 :)

    Enjoy :)

    Depending how hard your water supply is, it is usually worth doing every 3-6 months or so even if you have no problems. It makes the coffe taste better too.

Hello, i have a krups xp7220 and i have two problems with her.


A common place for a leak under the machine is the barista seal that goes in the bottom of the boiler around that eject rod. Barista seal part number is MS5002202, Seals on the tamping piston are MS5002040 (there can be 1 or 2 of these piston seals) If fixing the leaks does not fix error 6 then I expect it will end up being the distributor. Part number MS2A01500

Krups FNA2 doesn't draw water!


If it sounds like a pumping noise but louder then it may mean that the pump is bone dry and needs to be primed. You need to find an imaginative way to force water into the socket that the tank engages with. A clear hose of the correct size with water already in it and then press the button and blow into the other end of the pipe. Once the valves are immersed in water it should start to function.

When you press the button for a large cup of espresso (Nespresso Essenza) only small amount comes out


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
