SOURCE: No steam on Capresso Impressa S8

Most likely problem is over temp cut out switch. Small diode attached to the boiler to prevent damage during boil dry, or fault in the heating element itself. Difficult machines to repair and best handled by a service technician.

SOURCE: refilling system

same problem.. "fill system press steam" but no water was flowing. The pump has an air bubble in it. capressa customer service advised to continue (up to an hour of retrying if necessary) pressing the steam button, let the machine rest for a few minutes and retry again and again until the water starts flowing. Sure enough, after 45 minutes, and 30 or so times of pressing the button, it started to work again. While I was wasting away my saturday morning with this, Williams Sonoma said that they would have the machine repaired at no charge and have it shipped back to me if I wasn't able to get it working. I've owned this machine for almost 5 years (bought in Jan '05) and this is the only time I have had a problem. ..and to be fair, I had let the machine sit for several weeks without use, or water in the tank, when I encountered this problem.

SOURCE: Jura Capresso Impressa S9- no steam

Hi,

Great solution - solved 80% of the problem I had - would also add to check the pressure relief valve (back of pump where water lines to thermo blocks attach). Noticed presure was still low after cleaning solenoid. Ran steam with cover off top (cup warmer plate) and notice water flow in clear line at top (you will see the line). Went to pump, pulled off hose block at back of pump, and popped (carefully) off the black cap which separates the water to the brewer from the steamer. Cleaned this needle and seat, and the spring too, and the pressure now is extremely high at at the steamer wand. 100% fix now.

SOURCE: I was going through the decalcifying process and

I had the same problem and had success with cleaning the contacts in the back of the machine with a small nail file/emery board. I found that the contacts that are inside the machine had a little calisification on them. Once they were cleaned up no problem.

I had a similar problem with our Jura S8 and it was due to calcium build up in the selector valve which is behind the knob you turn to go from steaming to dispensing hot water. When you pull a shot, the water travels through that valve on the way to the grounds chamber. That valve has 5 lines running into it and each is retained by an o-ring and metal collar, then the collars are retained by a plastic cover.

I took the whole assembly apart and soaked it in vinegar and gently worked at it with toothpicks to remove the worst of the build up. Then I used a children's cough medicine syringe to force vinegar through the valve until it finally was clear.

If you don't want to attempt the disassembly, you might try flushing the machine with a decalcifier and cycling that valve to ensure you dispense solution through it. Hopefully that works because factory repair is around $400 plus shipping.

Decalcify jura


First run a Descale cycle from the menu (this will take several hours/overnight). Then hold the steam button for five seconds to reset the code. Good Luck!

Press steam fill water


You can check the water valve, it may become clogged. But you should not disassemble machine if you are not specialist. Contact Jura service center if your machine still under warranty.

Have you run a decal recently? This normally happens when a small particle (normally) an undesolved piece of the decal tablet is stuck in the flow meter, or sensor.
You can try and run warm water through the system and after about half a tank it should be sorted out.

The S9 has been unused for three months and I cannot get it to get water to the brewer. It keeps telling me to fill the water and press the steam button. No such luck. Is there a way to prime this machine?


Hello
This is a common problem and there`s usually only 1 thing you can try to do yourself. Use luke warm water in the watertank and repeat the fill system procedure 4-5 times. If this doesn`t help, try to shut down the machine and try the same after 30 minutes. If nothing happens after you tried this a few times, then theres a problem with the solenoid valve for steam, and this need to be changed. That`s something you need help from a technician for.

We have the S8 here at our office. Ran the cleaning cycle and "Clean Now" message was still on and beeping afterwards. Read the Feb 28 comment and carefully cleaned everything that had grounds stuck to it. Ran the cycle again and it worked. Thanks all.
