SOURCE: descaling

I had this happen once and had to put it through the descale process again. Just put more water in the tank, try it again and see what happens.

SOURCE: Saeco Odea Giro descaling problem

Ok first check if the machine is in greenlight state when you press and hold the water button, as it will not work when the red exclamation mark blinking.

also check if the button work at all flipping back and forth to hot water and steam.
I have never had this problem that it dident work.
But remember this, you dont have to do the descaling again as that has nothing to do with the reset.
You can even reset the descaling alarm with out having done the descaling.

If that for some reason wouldent work I would think its the CPU card is not working.

Have you tried descaling it. This message displays when it's time to descale and I don't know of a way to turn it off without descaling it.

SOURCE: coffee tastes very acidic

Hi kdimof,
I realize you posted this problem over a year ago, but I was curious to see if you were ever able to resolve this problem, or find the exact cause.
I have the same issue you describe. I descaled my Lattissima for the first time using the Nespresso descaling solution. And now, two months later, I cannot remove the chemical smell/taste of the descaling solution. I've run numerous descaling cycles with just water (as per Nespresso's customer service advice), with no success. I was forced to accept a refurbished machine (even though my Lattissima was only 3 months old). The refurbished machine is currently on the way. We'll see if I have the same issue when I descale this one.
Thanks, Redfran

Cappuccino and latte macchiato buttons blinking


The unit is heating the steam - the lights should switch to contant once the right temperature is reached. Make sure to always descale the machine if the cappuccino button light turns orange.

No water comes out of C190


Basically there are air pockets in the system that need to be cleared. Make sure the light has stopped blinking before you do this. If the light is blinking it means the machine is too hot. Turn off and unplug the unit. Fill the tank with hot water and run in coffee mode (lever towards you). You have to be patient it may take a while. Let it run till tank is empty. Now start the descaling process. You need to use the Nespresso descaling kit for this. This should solve your problem.

Nespresso citiz won['t exit descaling mode


I had the same issue, and took it to the repair shop, where the guy did the same thing, just pressed both cup buttons for 3 seconds. It worked. He said the Lungo button had to be pressed a little harder, as it had some connection problem, and thats why it didnt work for me. If you have the same problem, the machine will start buzzing for about half a sec if you press the lungo button while in descaling mode.

Delonghi Lattissima EN 660CW milk frother not frothing


I don't know why my answer posted in the comments section, so here it is in the proper area.

I had the same problem and was ready to send it in for repairs, but I talked to a great guy at Nespresso who helped me fix it myself. The problem was when I pushed the latte button, it would only froth milk for a second or two and then the espresso would start pouring. It basically refused to make a latte. Here's the things he had me do:

1) Descale immediately. I have an older machine, and descaling once a year does NOT cut it. He told me descaling every 5 months at the bare minimum, if your machine is not having any problems at all. Descaling is usually the main problem for lack of froth. I descaled and it seemed like the machine was working better almost immediately. I also ran 4 - 5 tanks of water through the hot water spout and the main espresso part (but mostly this is because it seems to take this much flushing to get the smell of the descaling solution out).

2) Reset your machine to factory settings. I have a classic Lattissima, so this is how you do it on that machine. Turn the machine on and wait until the drink buttons are steady (espresso and hot water buttons are no longer blinking to warm up). Then press and HOLD the power button until the espresso and hot water buttons BLINK THREE TIMES. Then they'll go back to steady again. You're now back to factory settings.

I did notice that I started having the trouble after moving the machine, so I'm not sure which of the above solved the problem. The main thing is it worked and I'm back to yummy lattes!

Water button orange light appear even after descaling


I had the same problem too.
Do repeat the descaling with water only. After the descaling the Lattissima shuts down. Just wait some time after shutdown before restarting the Lattissima again. The orange light will be turned off.
Hope this helps you too!

Water leaks from the top of the C190 Espresso Machine


in our case the problem was fixed easily: the metal piece in which the capsule sits is screwed in on the top. When it became loose our machine started to leak water from the top. So the problem was solved by retightening it!
