Capsule stuck in machine (u) slider won't open. Have tried unplugging it. Still won't open. Desperate for a coffee!


Download user's manual from the manufacture's website and search the troubleshooting section. There may be a safety feature engaged preventing you from hot water burn.

Tip

Repairing Windshield Wiper Fluid Resevoir


It's happened to us all at least once. We would be driving along, and a bug hits the windshield, or a passing semi splashes slush onto our windshield. You sigh and activate the wiper fluid lever, and... nothing but the sound of your wipers grinding against your windshield. Wait a minute... didn't you just fill your wiper fluid reservoir with fluid not to long ago? Chances are, something, either act of god or a heat wave cause the plastic container to rupture and leak. Time to go buy a new one? Not really, save money and just patch it. So what do you need?
-an ordinary plastic milk jug (I suggest a gallon size since you don't know how big the rupture is)
-model cement (the beautiful thing about modeling glue/cement, is that it "melts" and bonds two different types of plastic together that normally wouldn't work together)
-pliers/screw driver (phillips or flat tip)

The first step is to unplug the tubes that go to the reservoir, there should only be one. Next you want to remove any screws or fastenings that hold the reservoir to the body. After you have done that, take a look and see where the rupture or hole is. Then cut a piece of milk jug to fit over the rupture or hole.
What you want to do next is use your model cement and place a thing bead first around the hole/rupture, and another bead close to the edge of the piece your going to fit over. Place the piece over the hole/rupture and hold in place for at least one minute. Let your repair cure over night before adding liquid to test the repair.
The next day, add fluid so that it's above where the hole/rupture origionally was. If it holds and there's no leaks, then good job!! You just patched a hold in the reservoir and saved yourself some money. All that's left to do is just mount it back and place, and enjoy your day.

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.

With our nespresso machine, when you place the capsule inside & press the button the water runs through the inside of the machine where the plexiglass basket for the empty capsules are

WHEN SWITCHED OFF, WATER LEAKS AT THE BASE OF NESPRESSO C100 MACHINE


I opened mine when this did this - it also happened to my second Magimix Nespresso Manual machine. A short pipe carrying pressurized water had burst. I called Nespresso . parts were not available and they offered me a new half-price machine. We are talking a 4 inch piece of plastic tubing here. Shame on you Nespresso for encouraging me to throw what is otherwise a fine machine....

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.

Nespresso essenza en90,o


I opened up my krups nespresso xn 2105 essenza C100N machine today. It was not starting up quick enough, so silly me decided to dunk it in hot water. My nespresso is an automatic, it has the on/off switch down in the back. My guess is the water that went in there is what is killing the house fuse now. So I really needed to open it up. Not knowing how to proceed, I looked at fixya first, No details yet. So here is what I did.
I looked at the screws, (post on fixya suggested they are screws) at the bottom. There is 6 of them. They look like rivets as if they have been made into round blobs after putting them in. So I took a dremel-like small grinder (a really small drill would do better) and made two small notches on the side of each one. Be careful not to chip away too much plastic of the machine ;) Then I used very small and long pliers to get them turning. That is actually easy, they are lightly set in plastic. Hard part is to keep the pliers from sliding off. Actually once loose the most of the turning I did using a narrow rubber tube, I guess you could use the rubber on the back of a pencil as well. So, remove 6 bottom screws, actually you can remove the sides now. This gives you access to the area where you can see all the wiring and many of the parts. For me I needed access at the bottom, so I removed two more screws near the bottom, and removed the bottom plate. The on/off switch for the automatic sits down the back of the machine, there is one additional screw (six pointed star shape) in the internals for this. I did pull off the switchy bit of the switch - do not do this as springs andcontacts fall out... Mine also still has water in there so I guess I found my problem.
Well, thet is how to dissassemble. I will have to find out how to reassemble tonight, to be able to get my wife het coffee in the morning ;)

Leaking water, does not close


I had the same problem with the nespresso krups xn20 machine. After calling the Nespresso service desk they substituted free of charge the water tank, which has a little valve with seal at the bottom. It turned out that the problem was not the seal of the water tank, but the seal of the machine (onto which the water tank is installed).
I solved the problem by using Teflon tape (same type as that used to connect for water pipes) on the water tank, applying it at the appendix which goes into the machine.
It's been working ok since then (couple of days). The only problem could be the wearing-off of the tape after some time (you will have to reapply it).
