When I push the "espresso" button of my nespresson essenza automatic, it just keeps running until the espresso cup overflows. It has never done that before.

Did you shut your machine off? you just have to reset it. That has happened when I descaled machine. You need to hold the button for as long as you want the cup to fill. ex. hold the button down and count 15 secs. Next time you use the machine it should fill for the 15 secs. (use a used pod so you don't waste the good coffee). That has always worked for me. I had to set both sides (small cup and large cup, you my have to also). hope this helps!

Magimix Essenza M100 - purchase last week Is there a way of selecting cup size to adjust volume of water delivered? or Do I have to manually switch off the water flow?


It depends if you have a manual or an automatic machine. If you're not sure, the manual one has just one green button, whereas the automatic has two. The automatic one delivers a fixed amount of water, which you can vary but following the instructions. If you have a manual one then you need to press the button once to start the flow, and again to turn it off.

Hope this helps. :o)

Lights blinking


A longer description will help people debug your problem. I had the problem that the lights on my essenza machine would blink fast and not stop blinking. Pressing the button would pour out luke warm water without any consideration for the fill level of the cup. Turns out that machine was in Descaling mode. See section 7 of the manual. To get out back to normal mode, hold down both the buttons for 3 secs.

Machine stopped working and both buttons are flickering, if I push the left (small coffee) button then the machine starts to pump cold water. If I push the left (large coffee) button nothing happens. Not...


May be busted, but before you take it to the shop try these few things. 1. Unplug machine for 30 seconds 2. Then plug back in, (lights should still be blinking) Take silver handle that you lift when you put in coffee pods and gently push back handle as far as you can for 3 seconds. This should reset your machine,back to factory settings. To then reset coffee cup settings to your personal taste by: 3. You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. Do the same for small coffee side. Hope this works,it has for me; just not sure because of the cold water pumping out issue. good luck

When you press the button for a large cup of espresso (Nespresso Essenza) only small amount comes out


You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. The small cup that you are currently getting was probably set at the factory. Good luck

Does not draw water when tank is refilled.


Open the top (as if you want to insert a cup) and push back a bit more. This should get the air out of the system.

The machine seems not to be working well


I had very similar problem and found the fix here.
Did you try the reset process? Place an empty cup, insert a coffe pod, press and keep pressing the "Lungo" button until the cup is filled as desired then release it. Next coffee, just press once, it should be now set at the desired level.

Nespresso C1OOB not sucking water out of the tank anymore


I had the same issue and spoke to Nespresso this morning.  To solve this you need to reprogram-put a capsule in the slot and place a cup on the drip tray-press and hold the lungo button until the coffee has reached the desired height in the cup and then release the button.  That should work and every time you make a lungo cup it should be that amount. Hope this was helpful.

Does not stop making coffee


The machine has a reset capability to set the amount of coffee. Just push and hold the button for as long as you want coffee. Then let go of the button and it's reset.
