    The powerlight is on, but the machine will not turn on. Is there a fuse in this machine?

    Did you ever figure out how to remove the oval/round headed screws? I looked all over Home Depot and Lowes to no avail...

These are oval security screws. Get a hex security bit which has a large enough hole to fit loosely over the oval. Squeeze the tip of the bit till it fits snug over the oval head.

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.

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. nespresso d290 - _308.jpg

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).

How to replace thermoblock sensor?


To replace this part you will have to open the jura machine. I found this information out because I had the dreaded error 8 reading on my jura machine which stopped it from making coffee. To disassemble the jura coffee machine you'll need some special tools that I will talk about as I describe how to get to the sensor, make sure you get those tools or something similar.
The problem that you are having is the boiler is not heating properly (heating the water properly), so the taste of espresso will not be good. You need a high heating temperature to get good tasting espresso. This generally happens because the thermo sensor went bad and the electronic board is not sensing the proper heat because the thermo sensor went out.
1. Remove the drip tray
2. Remove the water tank
3. Remove the coffee cover and bean hopper cover (aroma cover)
4. Remove the cover for the pre-ground coffee shut
5. Now you will need to remove the cup warning plate that is stainless steel, it is fastened with 2 security screws. You'll need a Newelectronx t15 torx security screwdriver to take them out.
6. Now remove the top plate, there will be 5 screws fastening it down. Again use the Newelectronx t15 torx screwdriver to take them out. Pull it up to release.
7. On the rear end of the machine, you'll need to remove some weird oval head screws. The only place I could find the tool for this oval head screw was in the Newelectronx Coffee Tool Kit Set. Get the oval tool, which is different from the Newelectronx t15 torx bit and remove the next few screws. There are 2 screws - oval head, on the lower backside. Take off the rear back panel. On the left you'll find the mechanical parts.
8. On the boiler, which is the big metal part that is formed like an upside down tear drop. The thermo sensor is attached to the boiler with a screw - again use the Newelectronx security screwdriver to remove the security screw.
9. The thermo sensor connects to the electronic board. Detach the wire from the electronic board. Now the thermo sensor is off.
10. Replace the thermo sensor with a new jura thermo sensor that has the same wire colors. If the wire color is wrong the contact thermo sensor might not perform as it should.
11. Now put the machine back together. Good luck

Nespresso d300 leaking


The disassembly is a bit tricky as there are some screws with oval heads that require special tooling.
The web site below has tons of useful information on how to do it and where to find the special tool for the oval-head screws.
http://maultech.com/chrislott/blog/20100627_nespresso.html
The tool is available on ebay for about $10.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nespresso-Krups-Service-Repair-Tool-Open-Security-Oval-Head-Screws-/121114184054

I managed to disassemble it by cutting a slot for a flat-head screw driver in the oval screws using a Dremmel tool.

Most of the screws that you have to remove are on the back of the machine. There are three special oval head screws + four torx-head screws + two Phillips screws on the top of the machine.

Replace bellow seal


Hello.

1 Unplug the power cord. Pull the Whirlpool Duet away from the wall. Remove the screws at the back of the machine using a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the top panel from the machine and set it aside.

2 Remove the soap dispenser from the front of the machine by pulling it out and depressing the button at the back to release it. Remove the soap dispenser bracket retaining screws, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the dispenser bracket out of the washer.

3 Remove the retaining screws from the control panel with a Phillips screwdriver. Release the locking clips and flip the control panel on top of the machine. There is no need to disconnect the wiring harness. Open the washing machine door and remove the retaining screws from the door latch, using a nut driver.

4 Remove the outer retaining spring from the bellow seal using a pair of needle-nose pliers to grasp the loop and pull it out. Peel the bellow away from the door opening, using your fingers. Push the bellow seal inside the machine after you release it from the door opening.

5 Lift the front of the washing machine and put a wooden block under it.
Remove the retaining screws from the bottom of the front panel using a nut driver. Remove the wooden block from under the washing machine and lower the unit back to the floor. Remove the screws at the top of the front panel with a nut driver. Pull the panel away from the machine and set it aside.

6 Pull the old bellow seal from the machine. Unplug the white and black hoses from the old bellow seal . Remove the spring clamp from the bellow and throw the old bellow seal away. Rub liquid laundry soap on the groove of the new bellow seal. Push the new bellow seal onto the washtub with the opening for the hoses at the top. Push firmly until it is on tight.

7 Install the spring clamp on the new bellow seal into the groove using a Phillips screwdriver. Plug the black and white hoses into the holes at the top of the bellow. Be careful not to damage the bellow seal. Place the front of the machine on the frame and install the top screws using a nut driver. Push the door latch through the hole and install the retaining screws.

8 Press the bellow seal into place around the door opening and install the spring clamp around the perimeter of the bellow. Lift the machine and place the wood block under it. Install the bottom screws with the nut driver. Remove the wooden block and place the machine back on the floor. Put the control panel in place and lock the retaining clips.

9 Install the soap dispenser bracket and the retaining screws using a Phillips screwdriver. Install the retaining screws on the control panel. Place the top cover on the machine and install the screws with the Phillips screwdriver. Plug in the power cord and push the machine against the wall. Install the soap dispenser drawer and push it all the way in so the tab locks into place.

Thanks.

I just purchased this Hoover Steam Vac and am putting it together. The screws that attach the top piece to the bottom piece have washers that are stuck part way on the screws. Now I can't attach the...


I have assembled many of these machines, and have never seen any washers. There should be a small plastic bag containing two long bolts, two nuts, and a small self tapping screw. The bolts go through the handle assembly from the front, and the nuts fit into the upper hose holder from the rear ( you will see two hexagonal holes for them). The small screw holds the lower hose holder to the lower rear of the machine.

How do I remove the door panel on my 1996 Ciera


Remove the phillips-head screws on the door control panel, then lift the panel out and upwards to unlock the plastic clips on its bottom. At this point you have to unhook the plastic door lock knob from the control rod it snaps unto (a little difficult). Then the control panel will slide over the door opening handle and come away from the door panel, and you can disconnect the wire-harnesses. There are two other screws on the top of the door panel hidden beneath plastic covers that need to be popped out with a mini screwdriver or the like. There may or may not be a couple of screws at the bottom of the door panel. The door panel is held to the door with x-mas tree fasteners that are removed by placing a door panel removing tool behind the panel and around each x-mas tree fastener and prying it from the door. I've seen the fasteners removed with screwdrivers and the like rather than buying a panel removing tool, but usually it results in one or more fasteners being torn from the door panel instead of coming out of the door frame. It's a simple task, and the most frustrating thing will be getting the door lock knob to snap on the operating rod. Hope this helps, and good luck.

I need to replace a door switch on a Kenmore Dryer


I'm not too familiar with the model but you either have screws that are just above the door (open the door first) or two metal tabs in the front that hold the top on the dryer. The two metal tabs can be seen if you take a flashlight and look where the top meets the front about 8" from each side roughly. A flatblade screwdriver inserted at the top of these fasteners will release them from the top. Next have a 5/16 nut driver to remove the two screws on each side holding the front onto the sides. There may be screws at the bottom as well. You may not have to remove the front at all. Also HAVE THE POWER DISCONNECTED! Don't want ya to get fried. Remove the leads from the door switch on the right and remove.

You must remove the 4 oval screws on the back panel, then lift up the top panel. Then take a good grip in the left panel (seen from behind) and pull back. The other panel you use your fist and hit lightly backwards, it is ligthly snapped in the front panel. Then you will have free axcess for cleaning.

It leaks water out the bottom


Here is how I solved this problem. I had a small needle nose vice grip, the 'nose' is about 1 1/2 inches long. I tried to clamp the oval shaped screw heads in the vice grip in a perpendicular manner, ie the vice grip was extending away from the side of the coffee maker. There is a recess in the plastic where the screw heads are seated so they are flush when tightened. The ends of the vice grip were slightly too large to fit in this recess. So I ground down the ends of the vice grip so it could fit in the recess and grip the oval end of the screw. After clamping it tightly, I used an adjustable wrench to turn the vice grip and the screw to successfully remove them. I replaced them with normal Phillips screws during the reassembly.
