Question about Nespresso D290 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Nespresso D290 Just bought this the other day and the capuccino/latte steamer doesn't work - just shoots hot water regardless of wether I use the hose or just put it directly under the nozzle attached to the side. What am I doing wrong??

    Nespresso D290--the yellow light, bottom left goes on after a few seconds of normal process---capsule in, push button, makes working noise, stops in mid process, yellow light goes on; tried unplugging which has worked before; yellow light is out, looks normal ready to start; but repeat the above and the same results; yellow light is back on in mid process.

I hear you!! I found that you have to press the green steam light (left side) TWICE before steam is ready. After your second press, the machine will make pumping noise, then all lights will come on. From that point, the cappucino/latte steamer will work as manual describes.

My Nespresso machine does not suck up milk from the container and only hot water comes out, plus the small cup button flashes orange, is there any way to fix that?


Espresso machines sometimes come with a milk steamer wand. If your wand is producing water instead of steam, your machine is not heating properly.
But no machine draws milk into itself. If would be near impossible to clean.
Do you still have the Nespresso instructions ?

I have a nespresso D290 It shows that its on but a small yellow light keeps flashing and when I push other buttons it beeps


The instructions for your Nespresso LeCube 250 can be downloaded here:

The flashing light may indicate a problem with the heating system and proper water temperature is not being reached. Have you descaled your machine?

How strong should the output for the cappucino/ latte steamer? Mine just sort of dribbles the steamed milk. Thanks


When steaming the milk/cream make sure to hold the rubber nozzle to the very bottom of the cup and also make sure you are leaving enough water to produce the steam after brewing a cup of espresso. Also you'll want to check the breather tube that sticks up from the nozzle and make sure it is free of buildup.When the steamer is operating correctly it should produce a loud growling sound.

Not frothing milk


that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino
