Question about Nespresso C190 Titanium Espresso Machine

Krups FNA2 Nespresso machine

I have a Krups FNA2 Nespresso C190 Espresso machine, which is now a couple of months out of warranty. About 1 week ago it started switching its self off when making espresso - it wont stay switched on for more than 1 or 2 seconds before switching off. I have tried to descale it with vinegar but that hasn't helped. The shop I bought it from told me I needed to buy a new one. Its only just over 1 year old and doesn't get used much, only at the weekends, so should be able to last longer than this. Any ideas or suggestions?

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: 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!

SOURCE: No espresso coming out.

The problem with the XP4050 is the two safety valves that the water goes trough on its way to the coffee head. They are plastic and some of the parts will just become brittle because of the hot water and the contamination they gather. With my XP4050 they just broke and parts of it were in the rubber tubes that go to the waste tank.They are also very cheaply constructed compared to the more robust parts of this machine. The water to the hot water/steam head does not have these valves and has a completely different routing. I am currently trying to fix the machine with just one valve and parts of the two valves that are still good. Fingers crossed....

My nespresso c190 makes coffee watery


Have you decalcified the machine? They need descaling about once every year - 18 months, and one MUST use the Nespresso Descaling Pack, which is designed for all Nespresso machines. I can't understand why the capsule holder is tight, unless you have used so-called "Nespresso Compatible" capsules, which can cause this. The machines are designed for use only with genuine Nespresso capsules.

How do I descale my Nespresso C190 coffee machine?


You can buy a descaling kit from your Coffee pod supplier, but I simply use a mix of half water and half white vinegar - run this through your machine and it will descale perfectly.

Krups FNA2 doesn't draw water!


If it sounds like a pumping noise but louder then it may mean that the pump is bone dry and needs to be primed. You need to find an imaginative way to force water into the socket that the tank engages with. A clear hose of the correct size with water already in it and then press the button and blow into the other end of the pipe. Once the valves are immersed in water it should start to function.

Krups nespresso not heating water


That is a faulty thermostat or a defective control board.

Contact Krups and have the machine replaced.

Machine won't work


This machine does not have that muck electronic, the button switch has probably a short, and must be replaced.

As said the machine is Krups, and therefore should be covered with one year warranty. Call the number listed on the user manual, or find contact from websites below:
