Question about Jura Capresso Impressa E8 Espresso/Coffee Maker
Machine is not making coffee. Keeps asking to turn frother on. Then returns to ready and makes a few drops.
After contacting Capresso Customer Service - the solution is simple. You pull out the drawer and dump the grounds. Look into the machine and you will see a plastic flap. Reach your hand in and up behind the flap and you should feel a round screen. Using a paper towel, clean off the screen. Replace everything. Works like a champ! So glad I didn't have to return our 3 day old machine!
The rep states that this is a common problem - asked him why it isn't in the manual and he had no explanation! Plus I can't believe that someone else didn't post this solution since it is soo easy!

There is nothing to do - the piece of **** is broken, as usual. I am on my third one.
They are expensive garbage.

I also had this problem. This solution worked great.
Also, make sure you don't have the grinder set too fine if your beans are more oily.
I didn't think mine were, but started having the above mentioned problem after I adjusted the grinder to a finer setting (done during grinding of course).
So I've cleaned off the screen and the flap, ran a cleaning cycle and my E9 is running like a champ now!

I had a very similar problem. My machine is 2 years old, and this was the first problem with it. When making coffees the flow was losing force, just trickling out. I tried rinsing repeatedly, and things stopped flowing altogether, and it kept asking me to open the tap, and said something like "refilling system" while water came out the steamer. I tried Jeanne Marie's solution (cleaning the screen under the flap). It worked. The thing under the flap didn't feel as much like a screen as a piece of metal with small holes. It fixed the problem! Thank you!
