SOURCE: nespresso essenza problem

It's not supposed to make holes in the capsule until the water comes through. So, basically, when you put the capsule in, it pierces the capsule in three spots, on the top. The aluminum part will not pierce until you press the button and water comes through. If water is not coming through, then you can clear the air bubble by opening the lever on top of the machine, pressing the coffee button, and then closing the lever once the water begins to come through.

SOURCE: Nespresso machine does not punch hole on the capsules after close

This problem is most likely being caused by air being trapped in the system. To fix this, please follow the following steps: -

- Turn on the Machine, ensuring there is water in the tank
- Wait until the light stops flashing and the machine is ready for use
- Lift the silver lever on top of the machine into the upright position
- Press the coffee button on your machine
- Push the silver lever back, away from you, and hold it in this position for 3 seconds
- Press the coffee button again to stop the water flow

This procedure releases the air blockage in the system and your machine should function normally again.

SOURCE: The Nespresso won't make coffee yellow light keeps blinking

This is because there is either too much water in the drip tray, the empties container is full or the drip tray is not placed correctly. This took me a while to figure out as well, and the manual was little help. Nespresso is located in Switzerland so their support number is international. Hope this helps someone...

SOURCE: Flashing red light. Nespresso Citiz & milk coffee machine.

problem is overheating at a single point in the bottom of the milk container. Try cleaning the milk residue after each time you use it and the flashing red light disappears. This is a design fault. Nespresso are happy to keep marketing the Citiz but there is no fix - so the Nespresso "mess free" coffee machine is a bunch of flannel - good coffee all the same!

SOURCE: Hi, My Nespresso LeCube doesnt

I had the same problem. First, unplug machine for two (2) minutes. Then re-plug and as on/off switch is flashing- press and hold large cup button for 3-5 seconds (no light should show/flash from this button while you hold it down. The on/off will continue to cycle through its normal startup, after it completes you should be reset to factory settings and good to go. Good luck to you, this maneuver saved me.

I bought my senseo philips HD7825. I loaded the water then plugged it in then I added the coffee pod. However, the power light kept blinking (slowly) as though it is heating up. But it is not heating.


Hi
Quite possible the boiler has failed. You would need to disassemble to check (with a multimeter) if the boiler heater elements are a continuous track from one terminal to the other. Boilers often fail - else you have a electronics problem somewhere that will require a tech person check out.
The other thing boilers can do is to develop an earth leak between the heater element itself and the outside of the element - this will cause the machine to shut down your house's power supply if you have an Earth Leakage Safety Switch installed in your meter box.

Given this was an inexpensive machine and uses rather "odd bod" pods it may be time to consider something more 'common' like a Nespresso, Aldi or the Cafitaly style of capsules.

I especially like the Cafitaly capsules as they have more coffee than Nespresso, have 2 internal filters, can be refilled with ground coffee (I reseal top with wide cellotape) and can be refilled at least 4-6 times before they should be thrown away. Instead of around 30-50c a cup, refilled capsules costs me about 9c a cup - I get about 100 capsules out of 1Kg (2.2 pounds) of coffee.... beat that.
Cheers
Mike

My Nespresso Xn250140 U doesn't work. Why?


Check the hole where you put the capsule, are there any faults or obstructions visible? If not be very suspicious of your capsules, there are lots of brands of Nespresso coffeemakers and the capsules have slight variations between the different brands. The variations are almost invisible but enough to prevent the wrong capsules being used.

Coffee crounds


The problem you are having is common when these units have been in use for a while. There is a sludge buildup preventing the brewed coffee from leaving the brewer soon enough. Straighten out a paper clip and use the wire to open up the blockage in the hole where the coffee would enter the coffee cup. You may have to go up from the bottom in order to do this thoroughly.
