    I removed the water reservoir and placed the appliance over the edge of the counter. Holding it securely, I forced the locking bar and was able to eject the jammed and badly distorted capsule.

My nespresso u machine capsule slot wont open


Turn the machine off and unplug it from the wall for 10 seconds. It may just have a capsule stuck inside. Doing this will get the machine to eject any capsules when it is turned back on.

Can not remove capsule and lever stuck


I had a similar problem, and it was down to high pressure remaining in the machine preventing the lever from releasing. You can test this by pressing the capsule in the machine (which will be much more solid than normal).
To fix, all you need to do is make a hole in the stuck capsule. I did this by drilling a small hole in the side of the capsule.
That releases the pressure (and a little spurt of coffee!), and the lever will release.

Head won't lift without force. The head lock is in the Unlock position but it doesn't lift up easily. I have to stand behind the unit and use a lot of force to pull it up. It was fine one minute...


Presuming all looks OK near pivot & lock mechinism? can you see the locking hook in rear of mixer head at the hinge area directly behind lock lever, and is it nested in the slot on the base, or is it jamming up outside the stand and scratching it up?
There is a flat-head height adjust screw to control clearance between spatula and bottom of bowl visible from head-back position- leave it alone. There is a headless set screw visible when mixer is upside down to hold the pivot pin secure. This must be loostened with long-shaft flat screwdriver to remove the pivot pin for head removal if necessary ---avoid removing the pin if possible.

Is the hinge stuck with film of sticky sugar, milk-glue residue, ot the like? That is most common cause, distant second is the lock mechinism alignment (very rare)

Its important to keep head from wobbling side-to-side in use, so dont file or sand anything

I put pictures in the cd but now it won't eject. It dot stuck inside. I could not eject even if I clicl computer then click eject, it won't eject


Power off the notebook, remove power cable and battery. Then try inserting a paper clip into the small hold in the CD drive to force eject the tray. Make sure you have powered off device and removed battery before you attempt.

  3. Empty the drawer.
  4. Replace the drawer and the drip tray.

My cd rom will not open what can i do


  1. Software can lock the CD drive preventing you from ejecting. If this is the problem, turn off the machine, turn on, when the DELL screen flashes, push the eject button several times and the CD will eject.

  2. If that doesn't work, look for a small hole the size of a paper clip and gently push a paper clip into it. When you meet resistance, the drawer will start to open. You can then pull it open carefully. The computer can be off when you try this.

  3. If neither work, then you might have a jammed CD, i.e. incorrectly inserted. You can try to force the drawer open with your fingers but don't use so much force you strip the plastic gears.

Fault f72


this is usually due to the hinged part of the capsule plate failing to return to the normal resting position after ejecting the first capsule. You can resolve this problem by occasionally pulling the capsule plate out of the unit and running it through the dishwasher. You can also scrub it with a toothbrush under hot soapy water. Coffee stains build up on the mechanism preventing the plate from dropping to the rested position. The second capsule hits this and jams rather than riding the ramp into the puncture plate.
