SOURCE: unable to make coffee automatically using whole beans

The rivets in the back of the Jura Capresso units are actually oval security screws. The bit that removes these screws are made of a very hard metal and cost me over $50.00 two years ago. Also many people who attempt there own repairs tear off the little plastic tabs that keep everything together nice and tight. We repair Jura Capresso Krups Bosh etc. www.hotncold.com

SOURCE: Capresso C1000 - Coffee is going into the coffee grounds bin rather then

I had this same problem water going into the grounds disposal chamber, plus all green and red lights flashing. Was told if I could clear the lights to clean the screen and run a tablet cleaning. I was able to clear the lights tried to run the cleaning but it failed again. I have had my machine for over 4 years so instead of sending it back I decided to take it apart. The problem I found is an O-Ring that runs inside of the compression pump chamber failed, if I can find an O-ring that is the same size I believe it will be as good as new.

SOURCE: Tray empty message

If the machine says TRAY MISSING it's the contacts at the back so clean as other people have stated, you can also use a cardboard nail file to clean the contacts at the back if there really skanky!.

If the machine keeps saying EMPTY GROUNDS even though you have, pull out the tray, look just inside the aparture where the tray goes top right at the front there is a small slot where if you look closely you can see a small white micro switch. This will be probably gunged up with coffee and the switch will be stuck up, get a can of WD40 and squirt a small amount up into the switch then poke the switch with a small screwdriver up and down until it moves smoothly.

Then replace all the bits, sit down, look smug and have a coffee cos you've fixed it!! :0)

SOURCE: Capresso C3000 Mega-weak coffee

I have a Capresso fo 7 years now, had few problems, but always solve them.
If youe machine does all the functions properly, but doesn't give you coffee, you should check if everytnhig goes into the grounds tray. If that's the case you may only have a broken "O ring" inside the pressing element. It makes the coffe, but throws it away instead of filling the cup. I had that problem, and it was the "O ring".
If the grounds dunped on the tray are dry, you're looosing the water in the back, probably on the relief valve.
Hope this helps!

My tray is filling with water and dry grounds are being dumped and no espresso is dispensing.


The passage of water is not passing through coffee grounds. The coffee powder is dumped dry & water is bypassing the brew group and draining into the tray.
Causes:
1- Machine was not descaled. or descaled with automatic method only, as suggested by Jura.

2- There is accumulation of Calcium in the hydraulic system, generating back pressure. This reduces the pump pressure and water cannot force its way through coffee grounds.
3- Stop using filter cartridges. Turn the reminders off.

Solution:
Descale machine manually every three months. See link. Services Unlimited Inc Parts Guru Since 1988

Why empty grounds message stays


So did you empty the grounds?
Pull the plug and plug it back in.
There is an encoder disk that spins around to control the mechanical movements inside the unit. Some mechanical piece is not where it is supposed to be and the circuit board it waiting for a sensor to clear. Cycling the power will normally make all the mechanics reset to the start position and clears errors/jams etc.

How to reset descale function on Capresso coffee maker


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
    • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.


    • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
    • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
    • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
    • 6 Unplug the machine and dump the water into the sink.
    • 7 Fill up the reservoir with fresh, clean water and plug it in. Place the ceramic cup back on the drip tray and run multiple brews in order to rinse the machine of any remaining vinegar residue.

I need to clean my capresso c1000. i can't find the instructions. i put a cleaning tablet into the ground coffee area, and ran the ground coffee button a few times. is that it?


No, first push the self clean button (hold until lights come on). Then pull the grounds unit and empty it, that will turn off one red light. Fill the water tank. Then drop the tablet. Then hit the ground coffee button. Cycle through and dump the grounds each time the grounds light illuminates.

Cannot install tray with ground basket installed, after removing. Mechanism is blocking the ground basket when the tray is slid back into the unit after emptying.


Try putting a container under the coffee spouts and pressing the rinse button. This will usually free any coffee grounds that may not have been expelled into the grounds basket from the last time the machine was used. The grounds can get stuck and block the slide path of the grounds basket.

My jura impressa c9 coffee machine keeps tellnd me to fill beans when bean container is full


I just called their customer service 800-220-5701 with the same problem.

There's a point at the bottom of the chute where you can add ground coffee that tends to clog, especially if water gets in there. Access is from underneath - - remove the bottom tray and reach in - - it's not the hinged flap opening (that's the first thing you'll feel) but if you leave that closed and reach behind it, there's a silver-dollar sized area you're supposed to try to access and clean using a dry cloth. Once that's done you're supposed to try vacuuming from the top and then let it dry for a day or two.

Unable to make coffee automatically using whole beans


One thought is to call Capresso for the recall to fix electrical cord. They will pay shipping both ways and fix any problems for free as part of the recall. Worked for me, might be too late now but worth trying.
