    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).

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.

Nespresso pump turns off prematurely


Thanks to tddragon, especially for the info on removing the top.

On my DCC-1200 only the clock worked. The problem turned out to be a cold solder joint on the controller board (top pcb) and I found this out by touch-soldering every connection on the bottom of that board.

Take it apart


To make a tool to remove the oval screws. Take a 3 inch hinge pin and use a 9/64 inch drill bit. Drill a hole in the bottom of the hinge pin about 1/8 inch deep. Make sure this fits over the oval screws. Take the hinge pin with the hole in the bottom and squeeze it together in a vice.

squeeze it a fraction until it will lock onto the oval screws. Use a vice grip plyers to hold the tool as you turn it, It worked for me. Bobby Rice

Nespresso Magimix M250. power button pushed back into housing, How to access switch?


to get at the button you need to undo the two screws and the top and the two security screws on the front panel. The security screws are oval. I made up a tool by drilling an appropiate size hole in a bit of bar and then widened it out by angling the drill slighty to make an oval. once you have these out then you can tatake the front pannel off. the swithches are attached to the back of the front panel so watch out for the power cable. You will then need to take the switch housing off - a couple of torx screws and then it unclips. the button is on a hinge at the bottom and a prod to an electrical switch behind. I fixed mine with some flexable adhesive but it wont last Nigel

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:

http://www.nespresso.com/fileadmin/ca-en/_img/manuals/NES_08_00_EN_Nespresso.pdf

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

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.

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.
