Jura Capresso C1000 Espresso & Coffee Maker - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Hi Lflaher
If you can't see any screws then the machine uses snap fasteners.
Until you see one of the clips & their spacing it's hard to figure out.
Use a thin clean paint scraper or credit card type tool to lift & pry one of the plastic panels until you see or feel or hear the plastic clip pop. After the first one the task becomes easier.
Take photos as you go for use on re assembly.

The stuff we go through for a good coffee....
Good Luck

Machine is not getting water.

I've done a couple of these and it can be tricky to get the lower piston the correct height when reassembling it. Did you make sure that the entire brew group would fully cycle (the white gear travels from to to bottom) without binding before reinstalling it? It seems to me that the piston has to mesh with the gears in JUST the right configuration so that it will come to the top of its travel without biding on the housing or being to low in the chamber when it goes through the ejection phase (dumping the grounds). I don't have a fool proof method to do this other than trial and error. I'd go back and take apart the group again and make sure the lower piston is aligned correctly and that it doesn't bind when you screw the gear all the way up and down. Good luck!!!

Did it work before this?
Sometimes hard water can build up and cause blockages.
Try mixing hot water and white vinegar (50/50 mix) and try running it through the machine. If this works, run it through a few more times than run cold water through a couple times to get rid of the vinegar.
Good Luck.

This is an old question but I have the answer. I called Capresso Customer service. I told her what I was doing and she walked me through it. When it came to holding down the button for three seconds, I said I didn't get green lights but 4 solid red lights. She informed me the manual booklet was wrong and asked me where I got it. I said it came with the machine AND I looked it up online and downloaded a PDF of the manual just to double check. She informed me "Well, you are where you need to be now, so proceed with the decalcification". You think Capresso would put up or send out a notice to owners. They have my info and they have "refurbished" the machine once before. Weird.

thermal sensor error

No, first push the self clean button (hold until lights come on). Then pull the grounds unit and empty it, that will turn off one red light. Fill the water tank. Then drop the tablet. Then hit the ground coffee button. Cycle through and dump the grounds each time the grounds light illuminates.

hi there,

Please make sure that nothing is blocking the drawer from going in. when you look inside usually there's a flap, it's the first thing you'll see on the left side.

Make sure that it's properly on it's place for the drawer to go all the way in.

PS - Be sure that you are putting the drawer the correct way and not the other side first.

Hope this helps!

Tools and Materials needed to fix this problem are as:

* White Vinegar
* Fresh Water
* Volt-ohm Meter
* Screwdriver

Step 1 - Clean

If your coffee maker seems to be clogged, try cleaning it with a mixture of white vinegar and water. Assuming that your coffee maker has a 12 cup capacity you will want to use 11 cups of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Fill the coffee pot to the 11 cup mark with vinegar and then fill it to the 12 cup mark with water.

Pour this mixture into the reservoir and turn on the coffee maker, allowing it to run through a brewing cycle as if you were making a pot of coffee. By doing this you will dissolve any build up in your coffee maker. If the coffee maker is leaking because the pump is clogged, then this might clear the clog and stop the leaking. If it has been a while since you last cleaned your coffee maker, you may need to run the vinegar through more than one cleaning cycle to dissolve all of the buildup.

Step 2 - Pump Valve

Unplug the coffee maker and examine the pump valve. If the pump valve is broken or has a clog, then the water will not be able to rise up and flow through the fill tube. When the coffee maker is turned on, the water needs to go someplace. If it cannot flow through the fill tube, then it may leak onto the countertop. If the pump in your coffee maker is sealed, you will need to replace the whole pump. If the pump is not sealed you should check it to ensure it is not clogged with coffee grounds or mineral deposits.

Step 3 - Brew Switch

Examine the brewing switch to ensure that is working. To get to the brewing switch, remove the base plate. Next, you will need to test the switch with your volt-ohm meter. Touch the tester to the RX1 scale. If it reads 0 ohms then you will know that the switch works fine. If it gives you a number other than 0 then it is time to replace the switch.

Step 4 - Tube Connectors

If the coffee maker is leaking or sputtering then you should take a look at the tube connectors. Many times, a leaky coffee maker is caused by faulty tube connectors. If you find the leak is in an elbow, clean the surfaces before you replace it. If the tube connector leaks, replace both the tube and the elbow so that you can be sure the pieces will both fit together properly.

I hope the above helps....

Good luck.

I own a Jura Capresso S8 espresso machine which has been wonderful except for the pump that makes the froth. I sent it back to be repaired once already, at the tune of $250.00. Now it seems to have gone again, and this time it will cost me $275.00 to have it repaired. Anything I can do myself?

I had this same problem water going into the grounds disposal chamber, plus all green and red lights flashing. Was told if I could clear the lights to clean the screen and run a tablet cleaning. I was able to clear the lights tried to run the cleaning but it failed again. I have had my machine for over 4 years so instead of sending it back I decided to take it apart. The problem I found is an O-Ring that runs inside of the compression pump chamber failed, if I can find an O-ring that is the same size I believe it will be as good as new.

You should decalcify, when you steam the milk some what gets through to the steam and the build up of these minerals causes the issue
