Question about Jura Capresso C1500 Espresso & Coffee Maker

1 Answer

One over tired morning I picked up a bag of choc. covered espresso beans and poured it into my c1500. I immediately started taking out the beans. Unfortunately, I didn't get them all out. A few pieces of black plastic and metal rings came out shortly after making some banging sounds. I have the small rings and plastic pieces. What should I do? call Capresso and have it fixed or get rid of it to someone who needs parts or junk it? How much do you think it would cost to fix it. I loved the machine before I broke it. I had it 3 years and never had a problem.

I recommend that you call Capresso and ask how much it will cost you. If there`s nothing else wrong with your machine it will always pay to repair instead of buying a new one

Machine says refill bean but its filled


Hello Penny McEwan,

After two lifetimes in electronics... my highly sophisticated electronic background says ...

Get a clean paper sack.

Unplug you unit... and invert the MACHINE pouring the beans into the sack... While holding the machine in that position fetch it a good smack (one on the north side & another on it's south end).

Set the machine back down... like you mean it (good little bump to loosen any coffee bits)... pour the beans back into the hopper...

Plug the little beauty back in and
you should be ready to brew
.

Else ... get a clean paper sack... (blah blah... blah)
empty it ... smack it... vacuum it out (try again)
...

Take it to your repair shop!

As for me... after two life times: I still have all the toys...
all put away... nice & clean on the shelf...

I boil 12 cups in a 3 quart pot...shut off the fire and dump in the fresh ground beans let the froth settle (about 5 to 10 minutes)
and pour my first cups through an old fashion Melitta #6
(un-bleached) filter into a 10 cup Melina pot ...
or Chemex carafe

Better than a FRENCH PRESS... camp-fire style without
DRINKING the grounds...

Adjusting the flavor by varying my dark roast between
ITALIAN & FRENCH... with a half mix of PEETS
(Major Dickason's) whole bean... Yum...!!

Big, bold and just like a great big chewy CABERNET
Sauvignon... (CAN'T SEE THROUGH IT).

Never ever leave it on the heat...!
(use the microwave to reheat... or just try ice coffee).

Filter & all goes into the compost

Costco sized cups, bags & 55 gallon drums (of course)

Hope this helps!

I accidently poured about half a cup of water into the bean hopper. Now it still grinds beans but it will not start to cycle (the bean light does not turn off). Can i take it apart and dry it out or...


Taking the grinder apart is not easy to do and get it back the way it is suppose to be is not easy. The first thing I would do is turn the big knob to the 18 or max and the small knob to the -, and try again. If that works leave it there for a couple shots to clean everything out. If that works continue. Then while the grinder is grinding, turn the big knob back down to 8-10 and make some more drinks. 6 to 8 is a good start.
If it didn't work you will need directions but the damage may be already done. The burrs ghave no coating on them and they can rust very quickly. you may need new burrs or a new grinder.
I have a saying " If you are working on the water, keep the bean hopper covered and vice versa". Cross contamination will damage the machine very quickly.

Vac out the bean chamber, then remove the 2 or 3 screws and carefully lift the bean hopper off the machine, then continue cleaning the grinder, careful not to lose the gasket around the top of the grinder. When done reassemble and try to brew but do not add beans to hopper as yet. Until you are sure all the plastic pieces are out.

This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

Remove brew unit and check the grounds chute from the grinder, if that is clear, then re-insert unit, then when the grinder is grinding adjust to a coarser grind.

Help....we poured some water into the bean grinder/container


Hi,

You have to take off the bean hopper, turn the ring on grinder anticlockwise to you see the claque. Take out the middle off the grinder and clean everything carefully.

After that you have to put it back again, when you have the middle off the grinder back you turn the ring clockwise to the end, after that you turn it anticlockwise 14 "tick".
