Question about Jura Capresso Impressa S90 Espresso Machine
We bought this new and have used it for less than 6 months - ~1100 cups made - now has Error 5 displayed and does not work - luckily we got a two for one deal from the dealer so we have a F60 to use until the problem is corrected; however, I was not expecting to have any problems for this high priced machine from Switzerland - We use Reverse Osmosis water so the hardness is zero and use the Crystal filter and clean as indicated with tablets.
This should be under warranty; however, I would like to have a service manual to be able to be self sufficient.
The Error 5 indicates that the machine has been too cold. This can be from transportation or if the machine has been exposed for cold temperature for some time. If that is so, keep the machine in a warm place a few hours and then try again.
If this doesn`t help, it can be that the thermofuse or the sensor on the thermoblock is broken, Then this has to be changed by a technician.

Tips for a great answer:
All Jura machines in the series C, E, F, J, S & Z models have the same problem. The Jura recommended maintenance is insufficient or erroneous:
1- When new machine is set up, the owners click OK for use of Filter cartridges. This helps only to display reminders for replacing the filter.
2- The instruction also advises, regular use of Filters, eliminates descaling the machine. That is not accurate. Reminders for descaling are delayed or eliminated. This allows accumulation of Calcium deposits in the entire hydraulic and coffee system.
3- Cleaning tables recommended & sold by Jura do not remove Calcium deposits in the coffee/water passages. The automatic descaling method recommended by Jura also leaves the coffee side of the machine unclean. The error message in your machine is due to Calcium deposits in the Brew group, coffee outlet & the faucet dispensing coffee in the cup. I suggest all Jura machine owners should manually descale machine. Manually descaling includes use of 6 to 10 rinse cycles with descaling solution in the water tank. The error message "Clean Machine" is accurate & pointing to descaling the Brew group, coffee outlet tube and coffee dispensing faucet by using rinse cycles.
After the rinse cycles are complete, refill Descaling solution & continue descaling the rest of the machine using hot water dispensing function, until the tank is empty. Finally, give a final flushing of machine to flush out remaining descaling solution inside the machine.
