How do I stop the

Thoroughly wash the pot and the basket with a good oil/grease remover (detergent) such as DAWN dishwashing liquid.

Then run White Vineger/Water (50/50) mix through the coffee maker TWICE, with the basket and pot in place. (NO coffee, nothing in the basket)

DO NOT RUN any detergent or soap through the coffeemaker at any time.

Then, run straight water through the coffee maker TWICE (no coffee, basket empty)

Then wash the pot and basket out AGAIN with a good detergent.

This will remove any residue that is in the coffeeemaker from the factory.

As coffee brews, there IS a slight amount of oil that is produced. The coffee itself has oils in it, and is part of its flavor, and freshly brewed coffee will have a slight oil residue.

My capresso team gs #464 has steam coming out from every space in the machine. reserevoir is emptying slowly. I descaled it, still happening. what's wrong.

I had the same issue. If I poured 8 cups of water in the reservoir, I would only get maybe 4 cups of coffee, the rest boiled off as steam. In my case, it was an easy fix. Open the water reservoir and remove the black plastic water filter holder. Below the filter, there is a port where the water gets drawn into the boiler. In my case, there was a single coffee bean wedged sideways in the port, blocking off nearly all water flow. I fished out the bean with a metal pick, reinstalled the water filter, and the machine worked like new.

Miele/Nespresso CVA 2660 built-in coffee machine : the waste container fills with water and the quantity of the coffee dispensed is very little

That will be because all the seals in the brew head need replacing. These machines are designed to fail and need maintenance. Boiling hot water, neoprene O-Rings and pressure are doomed to failure. Water is being forced past the seals into the waste container, instead of into your cup.. That particular model is featured here often!

Jura X5 Coffee machine stuck in heating mode

If your Jura X5 coffee machine is stuck in heating mode, it could be due to a variety of issues. The thermal fuse is one possibility, but it could also be a faulty thermostat or heating element. Here are the steps you can take to diagnose and potentially fix the issue:
  1. Unplug the machine: Before you start any work on the coffee machine, make sure to unplug it from the electrical outlet.
  2. Check the thermal fuse: The thermal fuse is located near the heating element and may be covered by a plastic sheath. Use a multimeter to test if the fuse has continuity. If it does not, then it needs to be replaced.
  3. Replace the thermal fuse: To replace the thermal fuse, you will need to open the coffee machine's housing and locate the thermal fuse. Remove the old fuse and replace it with a new one. Make sure to use a fuse with the same specifications as the original one.
  4. Test the machine: Once you have replaced the thermal fuse, reassemble the machine and plug it back in. Test the machine to see if it is still stuck in heating mode. If the problem persists, it could be due to a faulty thermostat or heating element, and you may need to seek professional help to repair or replace these components.
It's important to exercise caution when working on electrical appliances, so if you're not confident in your ability to diagnose or fix the issue, it's best to seek professional help.

If your Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me is leaking milk from the bottom, there may be a few possible causes:

Hi, I'm using the machine coffee Jura ENA Micro 90. when I start to make a cup of coffee, the grinder is working until the cup of coffee is done.

It sounds like there may be an issue with the grinder's programming or calibration. Here are a few steps you can try to resolve the issue:
  1. Check the grind settings: Make sure the grind setting is not set too low, as this can cause the grinder to continue grinding even after the brewing process has started. You may need to adjust the grind setting to a coarser level.
  2. Clean the machine: If the grinder is clogged with old coffee grounds, it may continue to grind to compensate for the lack of coffee being produced. Clean the machine thoroughly, including the grinder, and try again.
  3. Reset the machine: Turn off the machine and unplug it for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn it on again. This can sometimes reset the machine and resolve any software or programming issues.
  4. Contact Jura customer service: If none of the above steps work, it may be necessary to contact Jura customer service for further assistance or to schedule a repair.
I hope this helps!

Pipe Pro 304 not revving up when starting arc

If your Miller Pipe Pro 304 is not revving up when starting the arc, there are a few things you can check:
  1. Check your fuel level and make sure you have enough fuel in the tank. If the fuel level is low, the engine may not have enough power to rev up.
  2. Check the battery voltage and connections. If the battery voltage is low or the connections are loose or corroded, the engine may not start or rev up.
  3. Check the air filter and make sure it is clean. A dirty air filter can restrict airflow to the engine and reduce its power.
  4. Check the spark plug and ignition system. A faulty spark plug or ignition system can cause the engine to run poorly or not rev up.
  5. Check the throttle control and make sure it is set to the proper position. If the throttle control is set too low, the engine may not have enough power to rev up.
If none of these solutions work, it may be necessary to take your machine to a professional for further diagnosis and repair.
