Question about Nespresso D290 Espresso Machine
I talked to Nespresso for the same problem because I broke off one of my side panels. They are held on by the same three screws. To me they also look like rivets but the guy I talked to said they were screws.He said they are indeed removable, but only Nespresso has the proprietary driver to remove them. Looks like even if you could remove them, Nespresso won't sell you any parts. They have this repair system where they send you a loaner and you use the same box to send in your unit. Not a bad deal actually, especially if your addicted to your morning brew. I considered using a needle nose pliers to twist them out and then replace them with a hex head, but I think it will be easier to just epoxy the panel back on, especially as they won't send me a new panel anyway.

Try the number five bit from newelectronx Security Screwdriver Bit Access Pro Tool Kit Set 100 Pieces. i think it is the one that fits the head on the Nespresso expresso coffee machine

After a 2 week vacation, I come back to find my D290 won't turn on.
I used a "U" shaped security bit that just barely fit over the narrowest part of the oval, and it was able to grip tight enough to get all the bolts off the bit says #10.
With a multi-meter, a friend and I figured out the power button failed. The closest thing radio shack had was a little too tall, but the footprint was right. Soldered in, it was fine for about 2 weeks. Then the thing wouldn't turn off one day, and I smelled a bit of burning and unplugged it. After unplugging it, it won't turn on again. Can't figure out what's wrong with it now. Replaced a relay and a few zener diodes, and it turns on, but just pumps water.
If your machine doesn't turn on, I would check the power button first, then the relay. After that, I'm out of ideas. Good luck!
Mouser Electronics has the relay for it: it's Mouser part# 769-JS1A-48V the relay is the same one as on the circuit board.

I have the problem that the power button blinks but it doesnt heat up. I guess I smelled a bit of burning the last time I tried to turn to turn it on unsuccessfully. I havent used it much but have never descalced it and now I cant do that anymore because it doesnt let me go into this regime(pressing small and big cup button for 3sec).
