First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: steam escapes from the join

Some steam may escape even when the pot is put together correctly. However, make sure that the metal strainer disk is correctly nested in the thick rubber washer on the underside of the top piece, and that the washer is seated tightly and evenly.

Most likely a faulty flow meter unit which is not providing the right information to the control unit. Replacing is not too difficult and the replacement meter is < $20.

The clue here is that the problem involves the hot wate and the single or double espressos. These three functions require accurate water measurements and they are programmable. It appears that the flow meter is not sending the correct information to the control unit. This could happen if you have blockages or if the flow meter is not working anymore. Most likely you need a new flow meter which only costs about $20 and should not be too difficult to replace. It is located between the water tank and the pump.

We have a Krups Nespresso machine that cuts out within seconds, even with no pod in place. It works by holding the button down constantly but could this damage the machine?


To programme the quantity you would normally hold the button down continuously for as long as it takes to fill your cup to the required level. Next brew you make should require a single touch & release it should then flow through as much water as the previous cup and then stop automatically. If it's not holding the programme I can't see any harm in holding the button down until the cup is full.

How do I reset the machine to the 50ml/cup factory setting?


I have a similar problem that the 1 cup (50ml) setting now produces about 150ml and the two cup setting just keeps going until the machine is empty.
The manual says press and hold the 1 cup button until it starts flashing together with the power light and the coffee starts flowing, then press the 1 cup button again when you want it to stop and the machine will memorise the new setting. I tried this on mine and it didn't work - I'm guessing something has worn out but dunno what...

The blue light is blinking, the water tank is full, but the water isn't heating up at all. should we return it? Or is there something that we missed? We followed the instructions and are getting no where.


blinking light means the water circuit requires priming.
1 - press power button.
2 - place a cup under steamer and turn on full.
3 - turn steam off when blue light stops blinking (probably a few ounces of water in your cup).
4 - you're ready to rock!

Saeco Magic Comfort Plus still producing steam in "off" position.


This may be something you can fix. It depends on your comfort level with mechanical repairs. You probably need to replace some o-rings in the steam valve. Don't keep trying to brew or steam because leaking water or steam inside may cause an electrical short. Decide if you want to delve into the repair, or locate a repair center near you. I could put you in touch with some.
