Question about Nespresso Citiz C110

2 Answers

Hi, I've been given my mom's brand new Nespresso Citiz C110 machine. It will not function at all, aften having been used for about 2 months. When powered on, both cup-buttons keep blinking regularly. There is no function possible. My mom was immediately given a new machine from the supplier, but I am curios to have it fixed if possible. Can you help? Br Anders :-)

A fuse is blown for the heater. The fuse is not replacable - it looks like a silver wide spot in one wire and is soldered into place. It is not clear what aperage these fuses are (may say on the side of the fuse).

You can try to replace it but the manufacture likely knew of a defect in the units because they were willing to send you a replacement machine without requiring *********** to send in the old one. They must be confident that there is no way you will fix it.

You may be able to solder a new one-time use fuse into the device but it will likely blow immediately or within a few weeks.

Sorry I don't have more good news for you.

I had the same problem with my machine that I just bought 2nd hand. After a lot of searching I found this great Youtube video. Unfortunately, it is in German but the video is well done and explains exactly what and how to fix it. It fixed my machine perfectly.

Good luck
Cheers

My nespresso is only creating 3-4 oz of coffee using the 6 oz button. Have descaled with no change. Any ideas?


Try holding both the buttons down and then turning the machine on while still holding the buttons till they stop flashing - usually about 2 - 5 seconds. This will reset to factory settings. Then you can reprogramme the Lungo button if necessary, by holding it down white the coffee is being extracted, till the amount you want is processed. The machine will remember this till you reset to factory settings.

CitiZ swap outside casing


I've stripped the casing from this model and it isn't difficult, though you do have to be careful. You should check out the Service Manual for the machine to first to decide if you're up to the job. The service manual is readily available online, just Google, 'Nespresso Citiz Service Manual' and you should get it in PDF format. The manual explains the process for dismantling and re-assempling. It also conatins wiring diagrams for all versions. It looks like the casing is the same, regardless of country. When I stripped mine, I didn't have the specialist Nespresso tools for the job, but carefully inprovised using small pliers instead of the special oval screw driver. BEWARE...any remaining warranty will be invalid if you carry out any work on the units!

My Citiz is not puncturing the front (waffled) section of the capsule and is not brewing.


-the short term solution-
1. take your affected capsule. set it on its un-punctured/un-perforated bottom (the thin foil surface) on a flat surface. the three puncture holes should be facing upward on the top of the capsule. by the way, if you shake the capsule you should hear the grounds sound dry as if the capsule was new.

2. find a thin small rubber band. size-wise, ideally, the rubber band will fit loosely around your thumb; with a very small gap between the rubber and your thumb.

3. put the rubber band around the collar of the capsule. the band should be put over the top of the capsule and pushed down until it stops flush against the flange (rim). if the band is correctly placed, the band will be just 1mm flat inside the rolled bare aluminum edge (rim).

4. insert the capsule in your citiz machine as usual. optional: you can orient one of the puncture holes at 12 o'clock position (top dead center) during the insertion process. this time, it will work. you will find the capsule will eject cleanly with the rubber band intact.

5. save the rubber band.


-which machines does this apply to?-
this is a common problem with nespresso machines introduced after 2010, specifically the citiz. i have not seen this problem on the pixie, yet. i would expect this issue on the lattissima plus.
i am assuming that the machine is otherwise functioning properly: meaning that the machine does not have an issue with the water pump, excessive scaling deposits restricting water flow, or some other major mechanical part.
-why is this happening?-
look at the capsule, the post-2010 machines bite new slightly rectangular indentations on the capsule around the top edge of the wall. this is new. nepresso changed the insertion mechanism in response to competitors bringing non-nespresso branded capsules to market: Douwe Egberts/Sara Lee "L'or expressO", Caffe Vergnana "ESPRESSO", etc.
this new insertion mechanism was supposed to thwart knockoff capsules, instead it is unintentionally thwarting your "real" nespresso capsule. the injector needles are not piercing correctly all the way. the injectors poorly lodge: deep enough to make puncture holes but not deep enough to allow water to flow freely into the espresso grounds compartment.
two things can happen:
1. the pressure release valve, inside the brewing chamber which prevents an explosion occurring if the coffee exhaust path becomes blocked, is activated and hot water overflows into your used capsule basket.
2. the hot water flows outside and around the capsule and into your cup as clear hot water.
-what do i do long term?-
contact nepresso. get your machine repaired or replaced. this is a factory manufacturing defect that has nothing to do with you, wear, use, or hard water. refuse to pay the $125 repair fee. demand that they fix the machine free of charge. they will send you a loaner in a plastic shipping crate to use while your is being fixed. you should not have to suffer without espresso or waste legitimately purchased capsules just because nespresso is in a legal fight capsule copycats. this is not your fault.

We have a Nespresso Citiz C110 which today decided to start having problems. It starts its cycle perfectly but as it is filling the cup the water goes cold and after a few seconds switches the pump off...


Sounds like it needs to be descaled. If this has not been done for a very long time, the scale will have affected the thermoblock and I may not return to full function. I only use Nespresso descale kit (not vinegar).
