    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

Tools needed to repair jura capresso


theres many places that i have found that provide the screwdriver to open the jura. before you could only buy them in a single with either a t handle or key chain loop. those are made from aluminum and last for about opening 3 screws and then they break. recently i have seen that single screwdriver is now made from crv steel. normally you will need 3 screwdriver trox oval and philips. they be purchased on ebay or amazon. you can get them in a set also just search for newelectronx 102. that is a screwdriver set that includes the oval phillips and trox. which is basically everything you'll need.

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.

Take out the two screws on the front panel. There are other screws in the oval top section. When you find them and remove them you can slide off the sleeve and can then get at all the works.

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

Trouble installing replcement gasket in Solis Crema SL 70


SL 70/90 Brew Head Gasket Replacement Time 1 to 2 hrs Tools # 2 allen wrench # 1 Phillips screw driver # 2 Phillips screw driver # 13mm wrench First unplug the machine. Next remove the screw in the top back of the machine. Push the top forward with your fingers. This unlocks the top and it can be placed behind the machine with the wire connected. Next rotate the steam knob counter clockwise till it stops. Inside next to the micro switch there is a brown cam. On the backside of the cam is the #2 allen screw. Loosen this screw and the rotate the steam knob clockwise until it is removed. Now remove the clip on the steam manifold that holds the steam wand. There may be a plastic tie that is securing the clip. Cut it. Pull out the steam wand and let it rest on the bottom cover. Next remove the 4 large screws that hold the cover plate around the brew head. This will allow the cover plate to drop down and swivel on the steam wand, exposing the nuts that hold the boiler on the bottom metal plate. The nuts that hold the boiler on are # 8. Before you loosen the nuts you need to remove the water inlet nut on the side of the boiler. It is a #13 wrench. Remove the water line. Now remove the nuts that hold the boiler on.

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.
