Also don't confuse its location. The fact that it is sitting on the lid is just for storage. Whichever one your not using gets stored on the lid.
Plus dont overfill it. you can only fill it to the right line depending on what magnet you use. Froth or not.

The small black stirrer doesn't froth the milk; wherease, the one that looks like a whisk froths the mil to make foam. So, if you want warm milk without the foam, use the black stir (it still makes a little froth) and if you want lots of foam, use the sliver one that looks like a whisk.

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.

Nespresso pump turns off prematurely


Thanks to tddragon, especially for the info on removing the top.

On my DCC-1200 only the clock worked. The problem turned out to be a cold solder joint on the controller board (top pcb) and I found this out by touch-soldering every connection on the bottom of that board.

Capsule area is leaking


Perhaps capsule holder.

Look Inside on top of this capsule holder for a crack in molded plastic where water come in.
(I have replaced big "O" ring for nothing because the capsule holder is cracked on top).

Despite having thoroughly cleaned the cappucinator and descaling the system recently, we just don't seem to get real steamed foam. It appears to be just hot milk with a few bubbles on the top.


when you remove the cappucinotore, there is a little clear plastic tube sticking up from the top of it. this is an air entrance oriface. this is where the air is brought into the steamed milk in order to froth it. the hole is very small, like the size of a hair. You need to clean this, or if you cant get it clean, your machine came with a spare one. It was in the cardboard box with the cleaning tablets, o rings, and descale tabs. Once this is clean, air bubbles can get into the milk and you should have nice foam. let me know if that doesnt work.

My Nespresso Magimix Citiz does not pierce the capsules every time. I use only Nespresso capsules. I have tried to pass them through a second or third time when this happens but I have thrown too many...


-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.

Our machine does not puncture the Nespresso capsule - so we only get murky water.


I just had the same problem with my new (less than one month use) Nespresso U. (the top of the capsule doesnt puncture and only water comes through). I called Nespresso customer service and a very helpful man suggested I run water through three times by pushing the top slider open with the Longa button pushed and then closed without a capsule in the chamber. That released the air bubble and now I am enjoying a wonderful cappuccino again! The customer service is fabulous, there was never a suggestion of charging me and I was told that Nespresso will send me a free loaner machine if anything goes wrong in the future that can be readily fixed over the phone. The Nespresso U is the best thing I ever bought.

Can i order another magnet for my Nespresso Aeroccino maker?? I am referring to the little piece that fits under the lid.


Hi,
I would go to www.nespress.com website and and go to your country and then click on Nespresso Assistance Service on the top right. There should be a number to call that can assist you.
For example Australia is 1800 623 033 9am - 6pm.M-F.
Service is pretty good. Just have your Nespresso account number ready.
Cheers,
Paul
