SOURCE: water leaks from the top of the C190 Espresso Machine

in our case the problem was fixed easily: the metal piece in which the capsule sits is screwed in on the top. When it became loose our machine started to leak water from the top. So the problem was solved by retightening it!

Can I use vinegar and water to descale the machine instead of the expensive kit? What proportion water to vinegar?


You can use vinegar freely, just wash your coffee maker when ready.
Vinegar only descales, won't damage metal and rubber parts.

Cleaned nespresso machine and now get white water


These machines are designed to be descaled ONLY with the genuine Nespresso descaling kit. It would be worth trying this. But never vinegar - never!

How do I descale my Nespresso C190 coffee machine?


You can buy a descaling kit from your Coffee pod supplier, but I simply use a mix of half water and half white vinegar - run this through your machine and it will descale perfectly.

Nespresso d300 appears tap close and does not brew


It probably need descaling. However, if no water comes out at all, descaling is a bit hard. You may need to take out the pump and dip it in vinegar or another descaling fluid.

Very slow water flow, barely filling tea cup


It could be a problem with an air bubble or with scale deposits.

It is recommended that you first run a descaling cycle using the proper descaling product. Do not use vinegar as it can damage your machine. Information on descaling can be found here:

We have a Nespresso Citiz C110 which today decided to start having problems. It starts its cycle perfectly but as it is filling the cup the water goes cold and after a few seconds switches the pump off...


Sounds like it needs to be descaled. If this has not been done for a very long time, the scale will have affected the thermoblock and I may not return to full function. I only use Nespresso descale kit (not vinegar).

Coffee tastes very acidic


Hi kdimof,
I realize you posted this problem over a year ago, but I was curious to see if you were ever able to resolve this problem, or find the exact cause.
I have the same issue you describe. I descaled my Lattissima for the first time using the Nespresso descaling solution. And now, two months later, I cannot remove the chemical smell/taste of the descaling solution. I've run numerous descaling cycles with just water (as per Nespresso's customer service advice), with no success. I was forced to accept a refurbished machine (even though my Lattissima was only 3 months old). The refurbished machine is currently on the way. We'll see if I have the same issue when I descale this one.
Thanks, Redfran

Krups Nespresso FNA2 coffe/cappucino machine


First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)
