Question about Nespresso Romeo E350 Espresso Machine

Open Question

F8 Error Unfortunately I pushed a capsule inside this little door instead of on the little balcony and then pressed the button. It stopped while the press was down. I could remove the capsule and could see no damage. However, when turning it on again, it simply shows "F8" on the display and doesn't do anything at all. The press is still half down and the balcony thing doesn't come out fully. What can I do?

-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.

SOURCE: Can't get a cup of coffee

Remember...when a unit sits the interior lining of the hot water reservoir tends to dry and debris falls to the floor. If you Purged the Brewer as per page 9 of the manual you would not have this problem. Pg 12 refers to DE-Scaling, which you must do now. Always use Distilled Water to prevent mineral build up.

Can not remove capsule and lever stuck


I had a similar problem, and it was down to high pressure remaining in the machine preventing the lever from releasing. You can test this by pressing the capsule in the machine (which will be much more solid than normal).
To fix, all you need to do is make a hole in the stuck capsule. I did this by drilling a small hole in the side of the capsule.
That releases the pressure (and a little spurt of coffee!), and the lever will release.

After I push the small button to the right to start brewing the machine does not stop on its own, and keeps running.


This issue is typically caused by the Flow Meter near the pump. The Flow Meter is what registers the amount of water dispensing through the machine during any selected function. The malfunctioning of it could simply be that the machine needs to be descaled due to heavy scale build-up or just a small piece of dirt from bad water has become lodged inside it. Another possibility is that the Electronic Card which is basically the brain of the machine is defective. Unfortunately if this is the problem the cards are normally rather expensive.

Hi Its hard to say with what you have said, but if the brew unit was cycling slowly, it may be the board. Close the door and make sure that everything is in but the brew unit. Turn the machine on and see if it cycles the gear in back to the starting point. It may take a few minutes to cycle if its the board. If it returns its the board. I have some boards.

Nespresso clitz's light is keep blinking. I pressed both button but not working, I turned it on and off and make sure wate container is placed correctly.


It sounds like you've put it into descaling mode. Hold down the "large" button for a second or two and water should start coming through. Press the large button again to stop it. Lift the capsule eject handle and put it back down. Then hold down both buttons for about 3 seconds to exit descaling mode.

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 problem


It's not supposed to make holes in the capsule until the water comes through. So, basically, when you put the capsule in, it pierces the capsule in three spots, on the top. The aluminum part will not pierce until you press the button and water comes through. If water is not coming through, then you can clear the air bubble by opening the lever on top of the machine, pressing the coffee button, and then closing the lever once the water begins to come through.
