SOURCE: Keurig starts & stops without brewing coffee, just descaled

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

I'm probably to late for this answer, but I will share it anyway.
I got this problem after buying a used CVA620, that had not been used for a while.
To solve the problem i used a breast pump :-)
My wife had this doublepump after the last kid. And I used the hoses that comes with this unit (rubber-like) and connecting them to the hot-water and the steam-nozzles. I started pumping, and pushed the hotwaterbutton. After 5min of pumping and swearing, the job was done. No my CVA works as a charm again :-)

SOURCE: my machine leaks water into the capsul box and

-the short term solution-
1. take your affected capsule. set it on its un-punctured/un-perforated bottom (the thin foil surface) on a flat surface. the three puncture holes should be facing upward on the top of the capsule. by the way, if you shake the capsule you should hear the grounds sound dry as if the capsule was new.

2. find a thin small rubber band. size-wise, ideally, the rubber band will fit loosely around your thumb; with a very small gap between the rubber and your thumb.

3. put the rubber band around the collar of the capsule. the band should be put over the top of the capsule and pushed down until it stops flush against the flange (rim). if the band is correctly placed, the band will be just 1mm flat inside the rolled bare aluminum edge (rim).

4. insert the capsule in your citiz machine as usual. optional: you can orient one of the puncture holes at 12 o'clock position (top dead center) during the insertion process. this time, it will work. you will find the capsule will eject cleanly with the rubber band intact.

5. save the rubber band.


-which machines does this apply to?-
this is a common problem with nespresso machines introduced after 2010, specifically the citiz. i have not seen this problem on the pixie, yet. i would expect this issue on the lattissima plus.
i am assuming that the machine is otherwise functioning properly: meaning that the machine does not have an issue with the water pump, excessive scaling deposits restricting water flow, or some other major mechanical part.
-why is this happening?-
look at the capsule, the post-2010 machines bite new slightly rectangular indentations on the capsule around the top edge of the wall. this is new. nepresso changed the insertion mechanism in response to competitors bringing non-nespresso branded capsules to market: Douwe Egberts/Sara Lee "L'or expressO", Caffe Vergnana "ESPRESSO", etc.
this new insertion mechanism was supposed to thwart knockoff capsules, instead it is unintentionally thwarting your "real" nespresso capsule. the injector needles are not piercing correctly all the way. the injectors poorly lodge: deep enough to make puncture holes but not deep enough to allow water to flow freely into the espresso grounds compartment.
two things can happen:
1. the pressure release valve, inside the brewing chamber which prevents an explosion occurring if the coffee exhaust path becomes blocked, is activated and hot water overflows into your used capsule basket.
2. the hot water flows outside and around the capsule and into your cup as clear hot water.
-what do i do long term?-
contact nepresso. get your machine repaired or replaced. this is a factory manufacturing defect that has nothing to do with you, wear, use, or hard water. refuse to pay the $125 repair fee. demand that they fix the machine free of charge. they will send you a loaner in a plastic shipping crate to use while your is being fixed. you should not have to suffer without espresso or waste legitimately purchased capsules just because nespresso is in a legal fight capsule copycats. this is not your fault.

Cannot get steam to come out of my delonghi prima donna XS coffee machine


Could not find why but maybe if you go back over the scaling procedure and steam procedure there might be something you missed.
Please note! If "Energy saving" is active, you may have to wait a few seconds before hot water and steam are delivered.
Steam delivery 1. Make sure the hot water spout is attached correctly (fig. 7). 2. Fill a container with the liquid to be heated/frothed and immerse the spout/cappuccino maker (D5) in the liquid. 3. Press the steam ( ) button. After a few seconds, the steam to heat the liquid comes out of the cappuccino maker and "STEAM" is displayed. 4. When the required temperature is obtained, interrupt steam delivery by pressing the steam ( ) button again. (You should not discharge steam for more than 3 minutes at a time).

My Delonghi espresso machine doesn't make coffee any more. The water comes in the usual way, but doesn't go through the coffee grounds, but spurts out at the sides rather dangerously and drips a tiny bit...


I think this may be similar to a problem I have had a couple of times with my Delonghi although mine is a 3300. Anyway it seems that extended use of the machine will make the O-rings on the heating element go bad so water and steam will sprays out from the hose connection to the heating element, the fix is rather simple just have a few small containers (expresso cups) to make it easier to keep track of where the screws go, its also nice to have camera phone an take pictures as you go in case you forget how it goes correctly together. So this is what I did on my 3300.
1. Unplug machine.
2. remove water reservoir.
3. with screwdriver remove side rear and top covering.
4. on the heating element the connector is white plastic with one screw and a hose coming out. remove the screw and slowly pull out the connector.
5. remove the o-ring (likely red) go to your home improvement store and find the right size replacement, Likely in pluming or fixtures department.
6. put the new one in, assemble unit and you will have coffee again.

Note: The O-rings i have found in home improvement stores are usually black rubber rings and they dont last as long as the red rubber ring that came with the unit so you may have to repeat this in a couple of years depending on your use.

My saeco machine is not functioning in the right order, it grinds after it makes the pad. So I first hear the clicking sound (meaning it is making the pad first with old grinded coffee) and then it grinds...


HI
Read the first then go to the bold letters.
To program your Magic Dlx: Press and hold the steam and small espresso buttons at the same time, then push the energy saving button (top right). Water Hardness. The large coffee button programs the water hardness. Press the button once and you will have one light in the top row, left side. Press it again and you should have two lights lit. Press it three times and you have three lights lit. Four and you have four lights lit. Press it a fifth time and it goes back to one light. Each light represents your water hardness. So if you have a water hardness of 3, press it until you have three lights lit. Press the energy saver button to exit the program and save your hardness level in the machine’s computer. It will now tell you when you should descale your machine. Pre-infusion. Press the medium coffee button to activate and you should see the light come on. Press the button and turn the light off to deactivate the pre-infusion. Pre-grinding. Pre-grinding is turned on with the cup warming button. When it is lit, the pre-grinding is on. Press the button to turn it off.

Is there a dutch manual for the Delonghi EN 680?


Try the manufacturers web site. They should have the manual in different languages. If not, try a search engine like google and type in "manual for Delonghi EN 680 in Dutch"
