Question about Nespresso C100B Essenza Single-Serve Automatic Espresso Machine, Black

3 Answers

Water is not comig out!

This the 3rd Machine we've bought (two times D90, and third time a C100), but the problem is nothing is working! We fill the container with cold water, switch on, wait until the blinking stops, then press the "cup" button: nothing comes out but a little whining noise! We also follow the "troubleshooting" steps, but it doesn't help! Are we doing something wrong here?

    Did you ever figure this out? I just got the D100 which I think is pretty similar. I did the troubleshooting and haven't come up with anything!

You might be inadvertently skipping the following step: after filling the container and switching on, after the blinking stops I believe you are supposed to lift the top lever and ... before putting in the coffee, press the "cup" button for about 5 seconds so that water is primed to come out. You do this every time you turn the machine on, NOT every time you make an espresso. I had the same problem as you did and then looked carefully at pictoral instructions and realized I was skipping this crucial step!

I found that the valve on the bottom of the water tank (held in place with a spring) was not aligned correctly - i was able to rotate it slightly using a toothpick then followed the priming instructions and my machine resumed working correctly.

Occasionally, the Nespresso will not puncture both sides of the capsule. When that happens, the machine makes a whirring noise but water does not come out.

Why does my bleach dispenser cup fill up with water every time I do a load of laundry?


I agree with grady709 about the plugged inlet lines, I had water left in my Samsung front load all the time and made sure the machine level and nothing wrong with venturi. I suddenly had water leaking from somewhere instead and when I took the top off I could feel the line swell up and leak at the fitting. Hose still leaked after replacing. Put a drill bit by hand down the nozzle where the hose clamps on and it was plugged up and also the bleach line was plugged up, also inside where the tray goes there is small holes in the top where the water sprays out can be plugged. Worked for me. Live where the water is hard.

Every time I use my New Hoover steam vac it leaks all the time I've tried every thing, I even bought a new tank same problem, I'm not taking it to be repaired its the 3rd one thats done it an


After the second time I would have asked for a refund. Maybe you need to do some diagnostic work.

1. Does it leak while sitting unplugged?
2. Does it leak while plugged in but not being operated?
3 Does it leak when the solution is above or below a certain level.
4. Are you over filling it?
5. Does it leak only when you pull the trigger? (valve problem)

Keep asking yourself questions to discover where and why it's leaking.

Good luck.

Hotpoint H2O error


Please check on the water flow to the drum, if the flow is low or if the inlet is choked the water flow in the set time limit can be low and so could trip.
secondly it can be due to problems in the level sensor, try and see if the pressure switch works outside.
Finally check on the program controller unit once again to see the triping. check the door switch for loose connection.

Try removing the water tank and verify that there is nothing clogging or blocking the valve that allows the water to flow from the tank to the machine.
Once you have verified that the valve is clean and undamaged, try putting the tank back in to the machine again. If there was nothing blocking the valve, then the issue may have been that the tank was not completely seated within the coffee maker.

May be busted, but before you take it to the shop try these few things. 1. Unplug machine for 30 seconds 2. Then plug back in, (lights should still be blinking) Take silver handle that you lift when you put in coffee pods and gently push back handle as far as you can for 3 seconds. This should reset your machine,back to factory settings. To then reset coffee cup settings to your personal taste by: 3. 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. Do the same for small coffee side. Hope this works,it has for me; just not sure because of the cold water pumping out issue. good luck

Water does not come out ...is there a fix


mcdevito75 here, Make sure everything is set to make coffee, New or clean filter, filter basket set in machine. Your coffee maker might need cleaning also.------------ Fill resovoir with white vinegar, let it run thru the machine 3 times, half way thru ther 3rd time stop machine and let stand for 30 minutes. resume brewing, then fill resovoir with water and let run thru machine 2--3 times to get rid of vinegar. If this don"t help you may need new coffee maker.
